SuperYacht of the Week: Grand Cru III

Grand Cru III was commissioned in May 2009 for an experienced and discerning yachtsman. Built by the renowned BenettiSailDivision shipyard in Italy, to the superb designs of P.B. Behage, with many innovative systems and features onboard. This ‘go anywhere’ motor yacht offers excellent comfort and safety and will be available for charter this summer in the Mediterranean.

Cruising on Grand Cru III is a quite unique experience. It is unusual to find so much accommodation and comfort on a boat of this size. Exceptional design of the interior maximises space throughout. Finished with beautiful American cherry wood paneling, parquet flooring and the finest marble.

The lower deck also has a fitness area with ‘Power Plate’ dedicated to keeping you in the best of health.

The crew area is in the rear section of the boat, with separate access and is totally self-contained allowing full privacy for the owner and guests. Attached to the crew accommodation is the full service laundry, just part of the autonomy available in a yacht of this class equipped fully to explore the world - or the next bay.

The large window area on the main deck is double glazed and lightly tinted to keep the best outside view and for excellent ambient temperature control.

The aft main deck also boasts a comfortable outdoor sitting area covered by the upper deck creating a welcoming place for relaxation. Alfresco dining is also offered for eight. For the ultimate comfort of her guests, Grand Cru IIIhas installed an infrared heating system covering the outdoor area thus enabling alfresco dining even during the cooler seasons.

For the very best comfort on the hottest of days the top deck has a ‘misting spray’ installation, and there is plenty of shade available, plus big sun pad for the sun worshippers. The sundeck features a large entertaining area with Bar and ‘Alfresco’ cooking facility.
