Formerly known as Project FB 275, the 108m/354ft motor yacht IJE has been delivered.
The longest yacht ever built by Benetti, IJE departed the yard’s Livorno facilities on Friday after the successful completion of rigorous sea trials.
She is now number 39 in the World's Top 100 Yachts by length.
It comes after the yacht marked the final installment of Benetti’s so-called ‘Gigayacht Season’ in March, when she became the yard’s third yacht measuring over 100m to hit the water in a short timeframe.
Attracting plenty of attention in the yachting industry, IJE’s clean and elegant exterior have been penned by RWD, while her interiors have been headed up by Benetti’s in-house team. Naval architecture comes from Pierluigi Ausonio.
“FB275 [is a] a great success for Benetti, for Livorno, for Italy. Today we completed this delivery 40 days before the due time.” Said Paolo Vitelli, Founder and President of Azimut Benetti Group in a statement.
We have made the owner, his captain and his team extremely happy and proud of such a [..] masterpiece.”
Among her on-board highlights, she boasts an observation deck, 1.5 metre fire-pit and heated swimming pool on the main deck. More than 1,000 square metres of space has been dedicated to luxurious outdoor space.
Accommodation is provided for 22 guests in total.
We have made the owner, his captain and his team extremely happy and proud of such a [..] masterpiece.
RWD yacht designer Adrien Chisnell has said the motor yacht's exterior design centres around "elegance, beauty, attention to detail and absolute quality in every surface and sweeping curve".
"Many years in development, the exterior lines were created to portray a purposeful and powerful stature yet with a timeless, flowing silhouette," he said.
She has been designed for long-distance cruising, with a range of 6,500 nautical miles at 14 knots.
It is not yet known whether IJE will be available for luxury yacht charters.
