Set for debut at this year’s highly anticipated Monaco Yacht Show (September 27 to 30) is the awe inspiring Seasense. Custom built by Benetti and launched earlier this year, Seasense features a wide array of unique features; which include an indoor/outdoor veranda located on the maindeck, as well as most notably the all new Benetti Beach Concept. The interior decor of Seasense is characterized by a plush use of elegant colour seamlessly blended with over one hundred luxurious materials.
The 67-meter vessel was just delivered to her owner in July. Constructed at Benetti’s Livorno yard, Seasense is built from a traditional steel hull and aluminum superstructure. Exterior design was completed by the famed Cor D. Rover; pioneering his definition of the “Benetti Beach Concept”. Unique elements of design include high vertical windows and a 10 by 4 meter swimming pool located on the main-deck, that can be converted via a carbon fiber & teak plank cover into a basketball court.
A prominet design element aboard Seasense, is the following blend that makes up both interior and exterior living space. As such, the main-deck provides guests with an indoor outdoor living space with a dinning area for a dozen, working as a bridge to connect the intimate TV Lounge to the opulent outdoor lounge through a pair of large sliding glass doors. In addition, floor to ceiling windows provide a medium to captivating 360 degree views when at sea.
Moving forward from the TV Lounge is the reception lobby, which features a prominent grey Antartide Marble spiral staircase with unique lighting and blue wood accents. On the right hand side is an oversized VIP stateroom; and further forward is the “owners’ apartment” offering expansive areas including a sitting area, two walk-in wardrobes, marble ensuite, and a custom 2.7 by 2.2 meter chandelier/sculpture specially commissioned by Seasense’s art collector owners. An additionally, inherently unique feature of the yacht are three meter high ceilings throughout her interior. Traveling down the grand stairwell from the lobby you will find four guest staterooms as well as a garage in the yacht’s centre, which houses a limo tender designed by Giorgio Cassetta.
Making our way to up the staircase of Seasense, we find a more formal salon along with the standard bridge and captain’s cabin located on the upper deck. The formal salon is an area split into both a sitting area and small study. Stepping out unto the aft outdoor area, we find a myriad array of sofas and sun loungers along with a dinning space for 12. The sundeck is significant particularly into the relation of the yachts size. Offering a fully equipped gym, casual living area, a fully equipped ‘American’ bar, and a wood burning pizza oven.
The plush interior of Seasense was designed and crafted by ‘Area’ in coordination with Benetti’s own in-house design team to create an interior that reflects the “sense of the sea.” Multiple blue design hues are abundant throughout the yacht’s interior spaces, which are capable of accommodating up to twelve guests in the utmost of style and luxury. Four varieties of wood are noticeable throughout her staterooms in addition to unique blends of marble and carpet floors throughout.
Seasense has a maximum range of 5,000 nautical miles at a crushing speed of 12 knots powered by a pair of Caterpillar engines (1,380 kW each), which are capable of propelling the yacht to a top speed of 15.5 knots.
