Top Auto Designer Collaborates on New Superyacht from Benetti

The Benetti Fisker 50, the latest concept luxury motor yacht from the venerable Italian yacht builder, comes complete with a movie theater that also doubles as a gym, a separate spa, a luxurious top deck hot tub, and of course several bars and sunbathing areas.

But, according to London’s Daily Mail, what truly makes her unique is that the Benetti Fisker 50 was was designed by Italian shipyard Benetti and car designer Henrik Fisker.

Fisker, the founder of Fisker Automotive, builder of the world’s first luxury EV, the Fisker Karma, said, “we went for a sporty design using lightweight carbon fiber accents, reclaimed wood, automated controls, solar panels and optional hybrid power.”

According to Daily Mail, the Benetti Fisker 50 “has been designed to optimize ocean views” from all areas of the vessel, inside and out. Depending on the time of year, or the owner’s mood, the fire pit, or Champagne ice bath, is “surrounded by comfy seats, just steps from a bar, al fresco dining table and barbecue.”

The middle deck features a movie theatre with a large screen and reclining beds. The private cinema converts to a gym by sliding back the middle beds and removing the chairs. The main deck has a reception area with bars facing the port and ocean, a large living room and floor-to-ceiling glass walls that slide open and welcome the ocean breeze.

The master suite is at the end of the main deck, complete with a royal bed, walk-in closets, library or office, bathroom, fireplace, minibar, curved TV, starlight ceiling and a retractable ocean-view terrace. Able to accommodate 12 guests and 11 crew, the yacht also has storage for water toys such as personal watercraft and a 21ft tender.

Owing to Fisker’s history of “green design,” the motor yacht features lightweight composite materials such as carbon fiber construction, and sports a series of solar panels.
