NAVIS April / May 2017

In September 2016, Benetti delivered its 45-meter motor yacht, Domani, to her owner. Domani remains one of the finest small motor yachts built by the company. To a large part extent, Domani’s beauty, power, and personality come from the influence of the vessel’s owner, who had worked with Benetti to build five previous yachts. Someone with that much experience knows exactly what he wants from his yacht. By bringing a clear vision to Benetti, the shipyard had a compass that pointed them towards excellence.

The Vendée Globe is without question the most challenging offshore ocean race that any sailor can undertake; 24,000 nautical miles, alone, non-stop, and without assistance. The race starts from France just as the winter gales are sweeping across the Bay of Biscay, it leaves the five big capes to port, and returns to France long before the first daisy’s push up through the snow. Adding to this enormous challenge is the fact that the modern IMOCA 60 sailboats are some of the most high-tech and highly strung racing yachts ever designed and built. The boats are a handful for a full crew. In the hands of a single person they are monsters that have to be tamed and judging by some of the incredible performances from the most recent Vendée Globe some of the sailors have indeed learned how to tame their boats. Much of the credit has to go to the designers who have come up with innovative ways for a single person to manage so much power, and to engineers who have taken modern fibers and used them to build incredibly light and strong boats.
