The sale of Project 169 follows a strong 2015 for the yard.

Italian yard Benetti has announced the sale of a 70-metre superyacht, yard number FB270, known as Project 169. The design is a result of the in-house team at Benetti along with considerable input from the owner and his personal design team.

“Benetti has consolidated its reputation as a reference point for all those owners with vast
experience in the yachting market – as with the Owner of Project 169 – that turn to us with very special requests for specific designs based on his long standing yachting experience, never compromising the highest levels of operation and performance,” says Fabio Ermetto, CCO of Benetti. “This is – in addition – the result of our consolidated financial strength developed through the years by earning the trust of clients around the globe.”

Project FB270 is the seventh contract for a superyacht over 50-metre signed in the last 12 months at the Italian yard.
