Following the official handover of the new 107-metre Beneyti Lana that took place last week, one of the yard’s largest yachts ever built is preparing for her maiden voyage from Livorno. The 3,900 GT Lana will now exclusively join the Imperial charter fleet who also worked as owner’s representatives and build supervisors during the construction of FB277.
Over the past winter months, Benetti worked at adding the final touches to the vessel, including new features as requested by the client that involved adding two state-of-the-art Kongsberg wing stations. During this period, the complex systems carried on board were tested together with the respective manufacturers from England, Sweden and Norway.
Designed in-house by Benetti, Lana’s naval platform is the work PierLuigi Ausonio Naval Architecture (PLANA). The two diesel-electric engines on board have a power output of 2,800 kW each, pushing Lana to a top speed of 18.5 knots. At a comfortable 12 knots she is able to cover over 5,500 nautical miles without having to refuel.
