It's March and the superyacht season of events is already well and truly underway for 2018, with boats available for viewings all around the world. This week, we step on board the 49.8-metre Benetti superyacht, FB 215, currently listed for sale with Fraser.

Built by the renowned Italian yard Benetti at their Viareggio shipyard in 1996 and undergoing her most recent, extensive refit in 2016, the 49.8-metre superyacht is a full displacement yacht from Benetti's Golden Bay Series. With a displacement steel hull, aluminium superstructure and teak decks, the Benetti superyacht was built to RINA classification society rules.

FB 215 features exterior design by her Italian shipyard and her original interior design was by the Nice-based studio, Zuretti Interior Design, before being replaced with a fresh, contemporary design following her refit.

In addition, a new mast will be installed on her sundeck in the coming months, designed and built by Benetti to give her a fresh and modern look.

On board, she accommodates up to 12 guests across six luxurious staterooms, as well as a crew of 11 who are also accommodated for on board. The generous staterooms comprise a master suite, three VIP and two twin cabins.Benetti FB 215 main deck aft

The ideal vessel for all the family, the Benetti FB 215 has all the amenities you would expect from a superyacht of this size and quality, including an on-deck jacuzzi and a swimming platform for easy access to the surrounding ocean. For those who love to get their pulses racing on the water, FB 215 also comes equipped with a generous tender garage for tender and toy storage.

Whether you're soaking up rays in her sundeck jacuzzi, reclining in one of her stylish saloons or exploring the stunning scenery surrounding the yacht, the Benetti FB 215 offers everything you could need for the ultimate superyacht experience and to truly live the superyacht lifestyle.
