Bloomberg: See the $37 Million Benetti Superyacht Designed by Henrik Fisker

20 Απρ 2016

Friday morning in Singapore, automotive design superstar Henrik Fisker revealed a fuller view of the superyacht he’s building with Benetti that was teased back in December. The collaboration was greeted with anticipation from both supercar lovers and seafarers alike.

   The Benetti “Fisker 50” is a 164-foot watercraft designed in California and scheduled for production in coastal Livorno, Italy. Its estimated value when finished will be $37 million. Benetti has said it will make as many as it can sell.

   “Benetti signaled they wanted an out-of-the-box design and with the Benetti Fisker 50, we’ve combined efforts to create just that,” Fisker said in an e-mail during his flight to Asia. “The yacht is built perfectly for entertaining and is top-of-the-line in every respect for the most discerning buyer.”
   This will be the first boat ever created by Fisker, who earned international stardom in the design community for creating the Aston Martin DB9 and Vantage and BMW Z8. His most recent project before the Fisker 50 was a Force 1 supercar he plans to make in Detroit. He also created the now-discontinued Fisker Karma electric car.

   Benetti officials declined to give specific details on interior finishings, but through a spokesman mentioned an interior “beach club” lounge, a spa, several bars, and, of course, a Jacuzzi. Renderings seem to indicate wood flooring throughout, fabric covered walls, and marble. There is sleeping room for 12 guests in six bedrooms plus space for 11 crewmembers. The master suite has a library and separate bathroom with ocean views, a minibar, walk-in closets, a massive curved TV, a ceiling designed to look like the night sky, and a modernist hanging fireplace—yes, a fireplace. Each owner will be able to choose which kind of walls, showers, floors, ceilings, and doors will complete the interior of the vessel.

   According to Benetti, the Fisker 50 will be able to hit speeds of 15.5 knots and travel 4,000 nautical miles at 12 knots before refueling. While it's not going to best the $90-million, 253-foot Silver Fast, which has a cruising speed of 22 knots - or come near to the World Is Not Enough, which hits up to 70 knots - it's comparable to other transatlantic yachts such as the 11.11, a $73 million superyacht also built by Benetti. The Fisker 50's two massive Caterpillar C32 engines feed from a 16,378-gallon fuel capacity.
