New Benetti 49 Metre FB702 M/Y Elaldrea+ Launched

Benetti, the world’s largest privately held luxury nautical group in Italy has recently launched the 49 metre displacement yacht named M/Y Elaldrea+ with success in Viareggio. This new yacht will join the other model yachts from the Custom line-up.

Designed by a multiple-award-winning yacht designer and naval architect Horacio Bozzo and the interiors by the Benetti Style Department, “the minimalism and purity of the lines are the heart and soul of this project, in which the demand for functionality embraces the design,” said the Argentinian born designer in a statement.

Equipped with a pair of 12V MTUs engine, the new 49 metre yacht is capable of nudging a top speed of 14.5 knots and a cruising speed of 13.5 knots (with the engines at 85 per cent power).

One of the distinct highlights of M/Y Elaldrea+ is the beach club with sauna, her spacious 115-square-metre flybridge with a 4 metre swimming pool, and plenty of space for the dining and sunbathing areas.

The outdoor furnishings are custom designed in collaboration with brands, including Link Outdoor, Sutherland and Vaar, while the interior furnishings feature reputable furniture brands such as Poltrona Frau, Giorgetti, Softhouse and Arketipo.

The interior display materials and colours that juxtapose with canaletto walnut and tanganyika, and various types of marble, including Travertino, Afyon Miele, Sahara Noir, Crema Luna and Port Laurent, and fabrics such as silk and velvet as well as steel inserts and detailing.

Built in compliance with the LY3 Code, the crew quarters contain four cabins that can accommodate up to 10 guests and crew members. At the 60 square metres owner’s suite area, there’s a balcony with an automatic sliding door that allows more natural light to flood in, thanks to the huge glazed surfaces. The suite consists also of two walk-in wardrobes, a double bathroom and an office/study area.

If you have guests onboard with you, you can put them on accommodation at the six guest cabins, covering a total area of 90 square metres, and the two spacious VIP cabins occupying 25 square metres each. There’s also a main garage that houses a 6.3 metre tender and the forward sea water pool contains a second 3.4 metre tender for the crew.

As one of the oldest Italian builders of motor yachts since its establishment in 1873, the yachting brand is renowned for its timeless Italian styling and elegance, coupled with construction excellence. The yacht can also be custom-designed to suit the owner’s needs and desires, such as the launch of this new 49 metre M/Y Elaldrea+, which is developed for a repeat client of Benetti.
