The launch of Benetti's impressive 108-meter FB275 on March 28 marked the third gigayacht to be delivered by the Livorno, Italy, shipyard in 100 days.

Stretching 354 feet in length and boasting impressive technical engineering, the FB275 will not, however, be Benetti's last gigayacht, vowed president and founder, Paolo Vitelli. Speaking on the morning of the launch, he stated that with the yard's new technical know-how and in-house workforce required for building larger vessels, Benetti will strive to deliver at least one 328-foot-plus yacht per year.
