Benetti has been recognized as one of the most amazing Italian shipyards since 1873, located in Viareggio, Livorno, and Fano. Known for building incredible and luxurious superyachts, this company continues to impress every yachting aficionado, with outstanding vessels. With that in mind, Luxury Yachts would like to present their recent vessel, the 63-meter superyacht, Metis!
Meet Metis, Benetti’s latest vessel project, that is both highly functional as well as luxurious. For this specific project, Marco De Cosmo and Giorgio Cassetta worked together to create the most amazing settings throughout every corner of the Metis superyacht. Although they’re very different, this project is based on the same platform as 11.11, the 63-meter vessel launched in 2015 for British businessman Nick Candy.
According to Marco De Cosmo, “in this project, the garage has been moved forward and on to the main deck. Because it’s at a higher level than the waterline, it improves the launching and the retrieval of the tender, whatever the environmental conditions”. This means that in the place of the aft tender garage, a beach club opens up with terraces port and starboard, as well as a long swim platform aft.
The asymmetric upper room features a dark gloss grand piano, a silky smoke-coloured rug by Vanghent and glints of steel in the arms of the armchairs and art-deco floor lamps, both by Fendi Casa. The bar, its face sculpted from Bianco Statuario marble and framed with polished stainless steel, is the star of this glamorous space, that’s so beautifully designed.
The dining saloon features a pale wood table inset and edged with stainless steel, and Bruno Moinard chairs covered in coffee-coloured leather. There’s also a stunning bespoke wine fridge, wrapped in leather and framed in polished stainless steel with dark oak fascia. Just aft of here, the cosy main saloon is centred by a bespoke coffee table with more stainless inserts, while the arms of the Fendi Casa armchairs are in warm wood.
Wood takes on a major role throughout the scheme, with wall panels of white and smoked oak juxtaposed with cream leather panelling, and the two woods used underfoot to delineate different spaces. Benetti has once again delivered an amazing vessel, and we can’t wait to see what they’re doing next!
