Benetti all set to launch Illusion 1

Speed, style and sophistication is what Benetti’s new 'M/Y Illushion 1' is all about. This 58-metre action-packed beauty is a four decked steel and aluminium M/Y which was built at the Benetti Livorno shipyard. Designed by Green & Mingarelli for a European Owner, the yacht will be one of the stars of the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show.

The Benetti design team has created its beautiful exteriors with considerable input from the Owner and his design staff. It has four decks in addition to a sun deck. Designed for commercial charter use, the Owner will also use her privately, thanks to a layout that includes one Vip and four guest cabins, in addition to the owners cabin, giving her a total capacity of 12 + 1 passengers.

The Lower deck is dedicated to the guests. The beach area featuring an ample bar zone and a stylish finish has the same level of décor found in the guest areas, as per the Owner’s demand. The VIP cabin here has spectacular bathrooms with beautiful view. This deck also houses the crew quarters with their  own bathrooms and an access that guarantees maximum privacy.

The Main Deck cockpit is spacious with large c-shaped sofa with twin coffee table and comfortable lounge chairs and a complete corner bar.The main salon is dominated by the Owners refreshing choice of locating the dinner table for ten next to the entryway: it is entirely dedicated to entertainment. And thanks to the aft location of the air vents, the area is very spacious and bright – the walls are fully in glass and fill the room with a splendid natural light. And for even more light, on deck the gunwales in front of the windows have been lowered to view the sea from inside and literally inundate the salon with light. Main salon is furnished with three large sofas, supplied by the Owner, along with a low table and a retractable wide screen TV. From forward, the bar overlooks it all. The owner’s interior designer, in collaboration with the Benetti design office, personally chose the style of furnishings and décor, with a dominant theme in pink, while the choice and combination of the materials used is quite special. Travertine, wood, and several kinds of marble alternate with other more unusual materials: ray-skin, coco or slivers of mother of pearl.

In the guest area  black walnut panel walls are covered with black walnut panels, The Lalique crystal insets here add yet another touch of elegance, and reflect the natural lighting. The ivory leather ceilings complete the effect of space and light. Passing from the salon to the main foyer, with its majestic stairway connecting the three decks and the crew area, then enter the modern galley. Its granite finishings, along with a custom made refrigerator, two large ovens, burners, deep fryer, and two wok burners, put it on a level with the best five star kitchens. A dumbwaiter connects the main deck pantry with the upper deck pantry.

After the foyer, is the Owners suite. The cabin, proceeded by a relax area, is full beam with large lateral windows and a beautiful sofa to one side. The bathroom is entirely finished with an onyx décor, with both sinks in carved marble. It is extremely spacious, with two entryways and his and her dressing rooms.. Another characteristic of this area is its complete silence. Noise and vibration reduction throughout the yacht was a specific request made by the Owner.

Informal evenings are hosted on the open Upper deck, where we find the 14 place dinner table and mobile bar; while inside there is another small salon with sofas, entertainment area. This area is for fun and relaxation with a small movie theatre, wine cellar and box of cigars for luxe lounging,

Go for this very refined yacht with a décor designed to furnish maximum possible comfort at sea, proudly maintaining Benetti's high class reputation worldwide. It will be available to charter in the Caribbean and Bahamas through Camper & Nicholsons International, at a weekly rate starting from $350,000.
