Benetti Reveals Early Look at M/Y Vica
Benetti has revealed an early look at Vica, a 50-meter superyacht that offers several innovative features while staying true to the classic aesthetics that many yachting enthusiasts appreciate.
Vica is the first Benetti yacht to combine a fiberglass hull with an aluminum superstructure. This helped the company keep Vica's weight under 500 gross tons without having a negative effect on stability and performance. Combining fiberglass and aluminum technologies is potentially the most important feature of this yacht.
Benetti also took an important step forward by using a specially designed elastic link between Vica's propeller shafts and engines. This keeps noise and vibrations at a minimum so her owner and guests can enjoy peaceful excursions.
These technological innovations work in conjunction with an open design that offers a classic look. Vica has four decks with guest cabins on the lower deck and the owner's suite on the main deck. A main salon offers numerous forms of entertainment, including karaoke, a grand piano, bar, and plasma TV with an extra wide screen.
Benetti installed LED lights throughout the interior. An iPad gives guests complete control over lighting. The interior also has an abundance of rich cherry wood with rosewood details. This evokes a traditional aesthetic used in many luxury yachts.
On the exterior, Vica offers three lateral balconies. One acts as a diving platform; one opens to expose the lower deck lobby; and another makes launching and recovering the tender extremely simple.
Benetti has a history of building some of the world's most innovative, beautiful yachts. Vica keeps those traditions alive while offering her owner the latest technologies. When Benetti delivers Vica to her owner, it will certainly be a momentous occasion.
