DREAM CONCEPT

Lately, several exceptionally opulent and luxury superyacht concepts have emerged, to satisfy the ambition of those stupidly rich. One thing they all have in common is that they're not meant to get into production lines.

At most, yacht makers around the world, build a prototype with demonstration purposes and, after being commissioned, the yacht is built according to all the customer demands.

Now, an exclusive partnership between Italian yacht maker Benetti and awarded industrial designer Fernando Romero, have put together a superyacht concept that aims to revolutionize the direction that the luxury yacht segment is headed.

Precisely 77 meters long, Se77antasette features a revolutionary design in which flowing lines are combined with complex structures that draw their inspiration from the marine habitat, creating harmonious connections between all decks.

Visually, this dynamic union between decks creates a single body that seems carved into the structure of the boat, offering original spatial proportions.

The radar equipment, which is usually in full view on top of the yacht, is totally integrated and invisible in the Se77antasette. Benetti's engineers have worked with leading aerospace and marine suppliers to devise a totally new way to hide the navigation equipment inside a glass dome, without compromising the control of the yacht and the safety of the owner, their guests and the crew.

The final propulsion configuration is made with 5 variable speed Caterpillar generators that allow the use of the full power available from the diesel engine as the speed is not limited to any rpm, and hence the required space is reduced. With this configuration, it was possible to keep the entire engine room on only one level, the under lower deck, allowing the lower deck to be completely dedicated to accommodation.

Se77antasette stands out for the extreme adaptability of its spaces according to the needs of life on board. The stern entry deck, with three complete openings, is transformed into a huge terrace that overlooks the surrounding sea, becoming an exclusive spa area dedicated entirely to rest and relaxation.

The ability to open up and embrace the sea or remain a closed, intimate space makes this one of the most exclusive areas on board. Designed to cater to the needs of the businessman, the yacht also lends itself perfectly to conducting business, and an area has been set aside for this purpose with a 270-degree view of the sea, where the owner can organise events, presentations, or private meetings.

With a double-height space in the heart of the ship and a visual link between each deck, the central area opens up to create spaces that are unprecedented for most yachts of this size. Depending on its use, the saloon can be fully transformed into an open dining area, into a screening room, into a theatre or into a dancefloor with a strobe light disco ball in the middle and a DJ station for partying with friends.

The master suite on the Se77antasette, situated in the forward area of the main deck, is a 100-square-meter apartment, plus 140 square meters of private outdoor space to enjoy in complete seclusion. The made-to-measure wooden bed is situated in the centre of the room, with sofas on either side and a walk-in wardrobe. The large marble bathroom has a view of the sea and private shower and toilet rooms. The terrace in the bow is furnished with comfortable sofas and even has a private 1.5 meters deep swimming pool. The space is also equipped with a floor lifting system that transforms it into a heliport to land and take off.

There are two VIP cabins and four guest cabins are on the lower deck.

The observatory, on the upper deck, is the best hidden and most intimate space on Se77antasette. It consists of 8.5 m long glass and slabs on which severe stress tests have been performed to guarantee their strength. The uprights contain air conditioning ducts to keep the temperature and humidity constantly under control.
