In the world of yachts, the Crystal 140′ is one of a kind. Its inspiring concepts are a special relation with the sea and the love for outdoor life. Comfort, stylishness and functionality characterize the dining areas and lounges of the sun deck and upper deck.

The latest creation by Benetti was launched in Viareggio at the Lusben shipyard, owned by Azimut-Benetti. There, the ship touched water for the first time and preceeded along the canal to the Darsena Italia, where it entered the dock shed at the original site of the Benetti shipyard to undergo its final fitting-out. In early 2011 the yacht will be handed over to its Caribbean owners, ready to sail through the Mediterranean and onward across the ocean.
