SPECTRE yacht interior
The James Bond-inspired SPECTRE was designed by Benetti’s Interior Style Department. The opulent design elements incorporate Art Deco styles and French modernity. Across the five decks, many amenities make the SPECTRE a luxurious and elegant experience for guests.
From the touch-and-go helipad, swimming pool, hydromassage pool, and massage parlor, there are many relaxing features for guests to enjoy. There is also a gym onboard and a beach club.
The SPECTRE features accommodation for 12 guests in undeniable luxury and comfort, with two owner’s cabins, two VIP cabins, and two cabins across the decks.
There is accommodation for 15 crew members. The garage is jam-packed with many water toys that offer guests fun and adventure on the water. The SPECTRE is defined by indulgence and refined French living on the water with its Gatsby-inspired flair.
With expert exterior design by Georgio Cassetta, the SPECTRE features a steel hull and aluminum superstructure. The naval architecture was by Mulder Design, and the yacht was built in the Benetti shipyard.
The hull is a Hi-Speed Cruising Hull to deliver maximum navigation efficiency, and the exterior also features underwater lights. The ship was delivered from their Livorno shipyard in 2018.
One of the most impressive features of the SPECTRE yacht is the state-of-the-art Naiad stabilizers from Naiad Dynamics. This offers guests a comfortable experience onboard as the roll of the boat on the water is reduced. Another advanced feature of the SPECTRE is the Total Ride Control technology.
This was only installed on commercial vessels before its installation on the SPECTRE. These allow the superyacht to effortlessly cruise through choppy water and maintain a comfortable onboard experience for guests. The 69m yacht has a beam of 11.2m and a draft of 3.2m. She has a range of 6500 nautical miles at 12 knots.
Her top speed is 21.2 knots, which is 30% above the max speed of a traditional displacement hull. She has a volume of 1410 gross tons and 2 MTU engines that power her through the water. She has an annual running cost of $7 million. She has won multiple awards, including Best Custom Built Yacht at the Asia Boating Awards 2019.
