Benetti Spectre and MTU

Benetti Spectre is not a spy story, it’s a 69-meter full custom mega yacht with a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure on five decks. And, if Italian super yacht’s name calls to mind the British espionage saga, the true 007 is MTU 12V4000 M93L kilowatts @ 2,100 rpm.

Benetti Spectre means a jump in the luxury scenary that’s allowed just to the caliber of Vitelli’s family jewel.

After Quantum of Solace and Diamonds Are Forever, Spectre is the third yacht launched by Benetti for New York businessman John Staluppi.

Facts& figures in pills

69.3 meters long, maximum bean 11.7 meter and 3.2 meters maximun draft. These are the main figures of the majestic hull that’s able to host 13*1 people in 8+1 cabins (two owner’s cabins, one has a private terrace, a sun lounging area and a hydromassage tub).

The owner chooses Benetti for the third time and, as usual, celebrates his passion for James Bond, the leading character in the series of films inspired by the novels of Ian Fleming.

BENETTI, A FASHIONABLE AND ARTS-FRIENDLY BRAND
