On board Crystal 140', even the relationship with light springs from a new concept. The extensive glazed surfaces form an integral part of the yacht's structure and gather as much light as possible to convey an unprecedented feeling of being at one with the sea. The foyer, with a side entrance featuring a big, full-height, sliding glass door, welcomes the Owner and their guests in a space bathed in natural light. With Crystal 140', the emotions aroused by the experience of being at sea are raised to a new level.
The Portuguese deck is in a world of its own. An integral but functionally independent feature of the yacht's design, its layout offers a forward sunbathing area for eight people and a dinette seating up to ten guests, plus a passageway around the perimeter for crew access if necessary. All in total privacy.
Crystal 140' elevates the quality of life on board to a superior level with its unprecedented stern concept. The beach area, designed to be independent from the rest of the yacht and provided with all services, has been created to combine the pleasure of direct contact with the water and the relaxation of total privacy. The garage for the tender, jet ski and other equipment has been moved slightly forward, with side access. The lower deck stern area, freed of functional constrains, takes on a completely new and unique meaning in the world of megayachts, offering a majestic beach area in direct contact with the sea, fully appointed with bar, bathroom, shower and changing room.
One of the most striking things about Crystal 140' is the way beauty and function both form part of the same unique expression. From the overall design and individual details, to the styling and layout, everything expresses rationality and passion to perfection. This is art, this is Benetti. Confirming the free reign Owners have in designing their yacht, Benetti even offers the possibility of fitting the Crystal 140' with a smokestack. This age old seafaring tradition has been reinterpreted both to hide technical equipment and storage space, as well as to provide access to the sun-deck area under the hard top using an indoor stairway to avoid getting wet when it rains. The smokestack also offers an unbroken 360-degree panorama.
The World under your Control
Crystal 140' is fitted with the Integrated Bridge system developed by Benetti: an innovative technology that provides a functional interface for all navigation, telecommunications, safety and data transmission equipment, ensuring extreme ease of use and faster reaction times, which translate into even more safety. Even the location of the bridge next to the Captain's cabin contributes to ensuring that the yacht is always fully under control. More than a century of experience and an intimate knowledge of Owners' needs have contributed to the design of BEST - Benetti's Exclusive Sea Technology - the first integrated system that brings all on-board electronics equipment and systems together on the same platform. In BEST, although subsystems have different functions and draw on different technologies, they can talk to each other in the same language: the television talks with the lights and the TV cameras communicate with the telephones. All this is made possible by the fact that every function has an open communication interface with the rest of the system.
The vessel dealt with in this specification is a full displacement motor yacht, with bulbous bow, twin screw propellers and twin diesel engines.
