THE 67-METER BENETTI CUSTOM YACHT PROJECT FENESTRA SOLD BY NORTHROP & JOHNSON
Northrop & Johnson is proud to announce the sale of the 67-meter FB278 “Project Fenestra” to an experienced American yacht owner. This exceptional Benetti yacht was brokered through a partnership with Northrop & Johnson in which Sales Brokers Kevin Merrigan, Wes Sanford and Joe Foggia brought the buyer.
Born from the pencil of designer Giorgio M. Cassetta, the yacht’s layout expresses the owner’s passion for family, fitness and well-being. The interior was designed by Benetti’s Interior Style Department.
“This order — following the North American deliveries of SPECTRE and ELALDREA, custom yachts of 69 and 49 meters — is evidence of the American market’s growing interest in the Benetti brand,” said Benetti CEO Franco Fusignani, following the signing of the contract. “Benetti yachts has become the embodiment of high-quality Italian craftsmanship.”
Cassetta’s exterior design perfectly complements the interior spaces created by Benetti’s stylists. Seven cabins can accommodate as many as 14 guests with an additional 10 cabins for up to 17 crewmembers, including three doubles for the captain, first officer, and chief engineer. The owners specifically requested that the crew’s quarters include materials and furnishings of a similar quality to those used in the guest quarters.
The layout of Project Fenestra is developed across six decks, including a sundeck, bridge deck, owner’s deck, main deck, guest deck and tank deck. Special attention was paid to the owner’s deck, which occupies more than 1,600 square feet and includes a lounge with sunken bar and 180-degree views. The sundeck features a forward steering station, gym, steam room and Jacuzzi.
The most distinctive feature of FB278 is the fully dedicated beach club. This area is replete with bar, full bath, dive room and upward opening stern door and side opening terrace that flood the area with natural light.
