Her on-deck master suite allows for stunning 180-degree panoramic views, a completely private foredeck seating and sunning area, an owners study and generous his-and-her marble baths.

CHECKMATE’s bridge deck offers multiple seating areas that are located both aft and forward of the wheelhouse. It also provides access to an enormous sundeck with a day head and drop-down flat-screen TV.

Thanks to modern anchor stabilizers, CHECKMATE offers supreme comfort while at the dock or on anchor.

Full Specifications


"CHECKMATE", with her fresh top to bottom paint job and 5 year class survey complete, is the newest example of the very well respected Benetti Vision series currently on the market.  Hull #18 and the second latest launch of the series, CHECKMATE also deserves special recognition as the 100th fiberglass/GRP yacht Benetti has built.  Additionally, she features a number of unique design changes that will forever separate her from her sisterships…notably the addition of much larger square hull ports for incredible views, a custom  spacious sky lounge with more windows, the addition of a day head on the sundeck, and a "contemporary chic", yet traditional custom interior, utilizing beautiful Cherry and Burr Madrona woods and many types of beautiful Italian marble.  The other great features of the series such as the on deck master with 180 degree panoramic views,  four very spacious below deck guest staterooms, an incredible upper deck dining area with slide away doors that create a 270 degree alfresco dining experience, enormous sundeck, and a proven and comfortable long range efficient hull form remain the same.   

Neutral fabrics and furnishings along with cream colored carpets beautifully offset the darker wood of the interior.  The hope was to create a more open, airy and contemporary feel while still maintaining a traditional interior that is easy to work with and timeless in look.  The Zuretti design team along with the owners personal interior designer at Joan Brown Interiors did all this and more.  CHECKMATE has a beautiful open salon that is comfortable and casual, and will certainly never go out of style
