Benetti Announces Se77antasette

The 77-meter (252’6″) concept is in conjunction with designer Fernando Romero.


At the recent Monaco Yacht Show Benetti made public its plans to work with award-winning designer Fernando Romero to construct a 77-meter build they call Se77antasette — or “77” in Italian.

The yard says that the mega yacht will have distinct, flowing lines and eschew any sort of rigidity in appearance. Even the yacht’s radar systems will be hidden from view inside of a glass dome, which Benetti says will have no effect on the equipment’s ability to function. Benetti CEO Vincenzo Poerio went as far as to say that Se77antasette’s lines will present “a perfect union between the two different worlds of yachting and civil architecture.”

That’s One Ambitious Maiden Cruise

Sanlorenzo’s first 140-foot Explorer yacht, Moka, crosses the Atlantic Ocean to America

Italian yacht builder Sanlorenzo says its first 460 Explorer yacht, the 140-foot Moka, has completed her shakedown cruise and maiden voyage. Moka logged more than 5,600 miles including a 19-day transatlantic trip to meet her owner in the United States.

The 460 Explorer debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show this past fall. She is a five-deck design with a steel hull, aluminum superstructure and volume of 460 gross tons. Her superstructure is farther forward than on conventional yachts, leaving space aft for the type of larger tender and toys that expedition-yacht owners typically prefer. With tenders deployed, the space becomes a guest relaxation area with a counter-current swimming pool.

Moka’s main deck houses the owner’s suite, while five additional staterooms and a gymnasium are on the lower deck.

The transatlantic cruise began just a few hours after Sanlorenzo delivered her and included 19 days straight of cruising at an average speed of 12.5 knots. Her 1,320-horsepower Caterpillar C32 Acert engines reportedly have the ability to go even farther on her fuel capacity, with a range of 4,000 miles at 11 knots.

Watch for more 460 Explorers soon: Sanlorenzo has already sold four more and has them under construction.

Riviera 57 Enclosed Bridge


About 15 years ago, I spent a summer season running a Riviera 40 Convertible. It was my first experience with the Australian-based builder. I took that boat up and down the East Coast, fishing far-flung bluewater waypoints. Every marina I stopped at, people asked me, “Who built that?”

She was a pleasure to be aboard, from her clean, flowing lines and stout, solid fiberglass hull form to the flawless high-gloss teak interior and first-rate fit and finish throughout

Riviera 57 Enclosed BridgeYou have two robust options of engines with the 57. Twin Volvo Penta IPS diesels (725 hp or 900 hp) provide pod-drive power while twin 1,000 hp Caterpillar C12.9 diesels are the straight-shaft option

So I was excited when I saw this builder’s latest: the 57 Enclosed Bridge , a formidable vessel that sits in the middle of a seven-model line ranging from 43 to 77 feet length overall.

Riviera 57 Enclosed Bridge

Some things haven’t changed, such as Riviera’s commitment to constructing high-quality, built-for-the-sea craft with solid fiberglass hulls and collision bulkheads forward, while other elements have evolved for this 57 Enclosed Bridge.

For instance, this boat comes with either pod drives or straight-shaft power options. Both can be set up with joystick controls. There’s the expanded use of glass, including hullside windows that offer great vistas from the full-beam master stateroom. One of my personal favorite touches is the flip-up window from the salon to the cockpit, allowing for effortless conversation with guests both inside and outside. With an aft-galley layout, that window is a great pass-through to the L-shaped mezzanine seating and table for happy-hour hors d’oeuvres.
