As a contemporary translation of Benetti’s iconic geometries and expressive sculptural forms, Settantasette couples the brand’s signature lines with organic shapes inspired by the marine habitat. The result is an intense and deep connection between and across SE77ANTASETTE’s multiple decks and levels, a sleek new silhouette, and unparalleled connectivity and openness inside and out.
FR-EE’s design harnesses Benetti’s legendary craftsmanship and reputation for employing new technology into a structurally efficient and spatially liberating design, and an elegant new curvilinear profile. SE77ANTASETTE’s unique form, sculpted from the vessel’s superstructure, reveals an architecture of extraordinary spatial proportions. Generous, split-level open decks, interconnected corridors and bridges, and expansive interior spaces that are designed to adapt to any need at any moment—a sense of unlimited potential, like the open seas and the beauty of nature.
SE77ANTASETTE’s numerous innovative features also draw on the use of highly advanced technology that can be found in the first instance in the innovative layout of the navigation systems. The radar equipment, normally in full view atop the yacht’s roof deck, is totally integrated and invisible here. Benetti’s engineers have worked with leading aerospace and marine suppliers to devise a completely new way to discretely integrate the navigation equipment into a glass dome, without compromising yacht controls or the safety of the owner, their guests, or the crew. The first-of-its-kind high-tech glass-domed observatory and captain’s bridge is also outfitted with augmented reality graphics, allowing for an altogether-new way of experiencing the night sky’s constellations.
SE77ANTASETTE stands out for the exceptional adaptability of its spaces, accommodating any number of changing needs of life at sea. The stern entry deck, with three generous openings, transforms into an enormous terrace that looks out over the endless sea, becoming an exclusive spa area dedicated entirely to rest and relaxation. The ability to open and embrace the sea or remain a closed, intimate space makes this one of the most exclusive areas on board. Here guests can relax in the freshwater swimming pool, have a massage, or alternatively use it as a gym or fitness studio, or a place to conduct work in an environment of untold serenity. Designed to cater to the needs of the modern entrepreneur, the yacht also lends itself perfectly to conducting business, with a flexible space benefitting from 270-degree views of the sea, where the owner can organize events, presentations, or private meetings.
SE77ANTASETTE’s central day area, with its double-height space and seamless visual links between each deck at the ship’s heart, opens up to create spaces that are unprecedented for yachts of this size. Depending on its use, the saloon can be fully transformed into an open dining area for breakfast with all the family, 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.
Situated at the forward area of the main deck, SE77ANTASETTE’s master suite is a 100-square-meter apartment, with an extraordinary 140 square meters of private outdoor space for the owner to enjoy in complete seclusion. Inside is a hi-tech studio / office supporting connectivity from anywhere in the world. A bespoke handcrafted wood bed is situated in the center of the room, with sofas on either side as well as walk-in closets. A generous custom-marble bathroom has a private shower and toilet rooms, and expansive views of the sea. A terrace on the bow is furnished with luxurious built-in lounge seating and even has a private 1.5-meter-deep swimming pool. The space is also equipped with a floor lifting system that transforms it into a heliport certified for an EC-145 helicopter capable of both landing and takeoff.
The two VIP cabins and four guest cabins are situated on the lower deck. The two VIP cabins have walk-in wardrobes and dual private bathrooms, as well as full-height sliding glass panels that provide access to private telescopic terraces. An additional four guest accommodations are situated at the ship’s center and have a glass panel fitted with a sinusoidal structure formed into seating and a table, offering unparalleled views of the sea.
The observatory, on the upper deck, is SE77ANTASETTE’s most intimate and surprising space. Consisting of 8.5 m long glass slabs on which severe stress tests have been performed to guarantee their strength, the uprights contain air conditioning ducts to maintain consistent temperature and humidity, while at night the dome can be used as an augmented reality screen, controlled by voice commands and movement sensors, so to always be informed on the position of the hull and a breathtaking view of the starry sky.
At 77 meters long and 14.20 meters wide, SE77ANTASETT will have a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure. Fitted with two 1,600 kW diesel-electric propulsion systems, it will deliver top speeds of 16 knots and a range of 5,000 miles at 12 knots. This extraordinary vessel welcomes up to 12 guests on board, with accommodation for 19 crew members on the lower deck.
As with all Benetti’s exceptional crafts, customization is available, with several exterior color palette options available.
