Petrus II, Benetti’s new jewel, is the first hull built in the new Classic range – debut in US at the next Miami Boat Show 2013. Petrus II represents a further evolution of the Benetti look, magnificently interpreted by the architect Righini, in complete harmony with the rest of the Benetti Class range, presently from 93 to 145 feet.
The new Benetti Classic Supreme 132 measures 40.24 meters overall, with a maximum beam of 8.28 meters. The project brief was guided by the necessity to present an ever more competitive vessel to the market, maintaining Benetti’s attention towards innovation intact.
The owner’s cabin with a terrace, a double Jacuzzi (both on the forward upper deck and on the sun deck) and the open-air exterior stairways are just a few examples of this new model’s innovations.
The new Benetti Classic Supreme 132’ was designed to exalt the characteristics of a displacement yacht, with ample interior and exterior volumes, combined with a high level of on board comfort. Full hight windows on both the main and upper deck give greater light to the interior decks and a more racy look to the yacht’s profile. The attention to design is also visible by several new details: the external rotating pilot wings are retractable and disappear in the shearline; the navigation lights’ new design that increases their integration with the yacht’s exterior lines and make it appear more modern and captivating.
The interior design is autographed by Francios Zuretti, in collaboration with the yard’s internal design team. The interior furnishings of Petrus II are of natural oak and wengè, enriched with handmade leather inserts. Other special materials are also used: structural wengè to give a three dimensional effect, diamond shaped panels in ivory colored natural leather in the owner’s and the VIP cabins rise from behind the head of the berths and continue up to the ceiling, while in other spaces, like the main salon, there are recessed ceiling lights. A mix of marble, leather finish and mosiacs are used in the heads. As always, Benetti interiors are completely customizable.
In coherence with the other models in the Class range of Benetti yachts, the Classic Supreme 32′ is equipped with innovative technological systems. The BEST platform (Benetti’s exclusive Sea Technology) integrates all onboard electronic systems (entertainment, home automation, communications and security) with a single user friendly interface. The integrated navigation system allows all the yacht’s navigation and communication’s systems to interact, giving a more secure and dependable management of the yacht. The design of the dashboard allows a more modern and efficient use of space with three monitors, three touch panels and three joysticks, which give control over the whole yacht with just a few instruments and lots of technology.
One hundred square meters of sun deck give all guests comfort and privacy even above deck.
Divided into four zones, the area is also equipped with a day-head, giving complete independence from the interior areas.
Highly refined loose furniture has been chosen directly by the owner. The sofa’s and poofs are from Dedon, the lunch chairs in Burma teak by Royal Botania, while the anchored coffee and lunch tables are designed by the Benetti style office, which as always has satisfied the owner’s most special desires.
The sun and all the other exterior decks, along with the rest of the wood used on board, use FSC certified teak, harvested from responsibly managed forests following rigorous environmental, social and economic standards.
An umbrella is situtated over the Jacuzzi. All external furniture in fiberglass has been designed by the Benetti style office.
In the bow zone a fiberglass hardtop with integrated lighting and a centered electrically commanded curtain has been installed.
The exclusive layout of the exterior upper deck, with use here too of loose furniture, allows considerable flexibility. The on deck lunch table has twelve places and is designed by the Benetti design team.
The primary innovation on the upper deck is the open-air stairway, with a steel structure and teak steps. This gives us a spacious and sunny deck.
The sky lounge has two full height windows for exceptional panoramas, and to illuminate the card table and bar on one side, and the long couch on the other. In front of the long couch there is a low table with TV to enjoy in any case the view of the deck.
The ergonomic pilot wings are part of the sheer and placed to permit maximum visibility during manouvering.
The main salon is filled by natural light thanks to ample windows on both sides; the windows beside the lunch table are full height. The lunch table has the top in wengè and the base in wood with inlays in satin finished steel.
In the owner’s suite the walk-in closet is behind the bed and has a to entrances – one from the corridor/office and the other from beside the bed. The other feature is an extendible terrace that allows the owner to have a private veranda with a sliding floor and covering in his cabin.
On the opposite wall there is a panoramic window. The TV is on the wall in front of the bed, surrounded by a frame. The head of the bed, as in the guest cabins, has diamond shaped panels finished with ivory leather. The bathroom has both walls and windows in Crème Champagne colored marble and the top of the sink in Bronze Amani.
LED’s have been chosen for decorative lighting fixtures. Strip-LEDS are found in the recesses (above the bedside tables and in the bathrooms), above and below the bath furniture in guest and owner’s bathrooms and in the curtains. Colored glass silver touch switches, lit by LED’s are in all the important areas, with coordinated wall sockets. The galley is white lacquered with a black marble countertop and grey vinal “Silver” flooring.
The guest’s four cabins – two VIP and two twin cabins – are above average in size and all have ample windows with a view of the sea. External borders and lowered beds give the sensation of total immersion in the outside world. All guest bathrooms are in Limestone marble.
A crew of seven is foreseen. The Commander’s cabin is located on the upper deck, as tradition demands of long range cruising vessels. The crew area hosts six crew in three cabins and is characterized by an ample open space with an integrated wash room area. Instead of a tender, the garage is replete with two water scooters. There is also a special place to stow the loose furniture when at sea.
