Built for high-speed cruising in extreme comfort, Benetti’s motor yacht Africa is part of the Italian shipyard’s FB500 range of yachts and together with Anastasia K and Panthera is the first of three in this series. The 47-metre motor yacht was designed by Stefano Natucci and launched in Viareggio in 2010. Africa can cruise at 20 knots and reaches a top speed of 24 knots. A range of 3,400 nm can be covered when maintaining a more efficient speed. Here she is captured at anchor with the principality of Monaco in the background.
