Benetti announces the delivery of the 107-metre long FB277 M/Y "Lana". Benetti's in-house team created both the interior and exterior design of "Lana", which has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, a beam of 15.2 metres and a gross tonnage of 3,900 GT. Stand out features such as a diesel-electric propulsion, a large swimming pool, helipad, spa and plenty of toys and tenders will make her one of the most exciting yachts on the scene. "Lana" has been managed by Imperial acting as Owner's Representative and Build Supervisor.

Following official delivery on 18th of June, today Benetti is boarding "Lana"'s final buyer's supplies for her departure. "Lana" was kept at the yard during the winter season following the client's desire to add, among others features, two Kongsberg wing stations state of the art in terms of complexity and innovation.

It was the Client himself who lavished the first praise on "Lana" as soon as his final requirements were implemented and the yacht completed, stating: "I am absolutely satisfied with the work done by Benetti and Imperial together. "Lana" represents a statement of building excellence, every technical feature, every aesthetic element, every single detail was executed to perfection. I am glad we all made this way to prove a new level of Italian shipbuilding industry."

An extraordinary and rigorous amount of testing and commissioning of complex equipment was carried out in Livorno by Benetti technicians under the remote supervision and direction of the equipment's manufacturers, respectively based in England, Norway and Sweden. In difficult circumstances, the remote approach that had to be adopted, also on technical aspects, proved to be a true test of a new way of working.

"Lana", one of the three 100m+ Giga yacht recently realised by the Italian yard, is truly a testament to Benetti's commitment to championing a new era of large yacht building in Italy and the resounding success of the yard's very first Giga season.

Moreover "Lana" draws on all the benefits of Benetti's heritage in pioneering technology, notable design collaborations, unparalleled quality standards and last, but not least, the iconic elegance. It's no coincidence that "Lana" already won the "Yacht of the Year" award in the category of boats over 270 feet in length (over 82 metres) during the last edition of the World Yachts Trophies organised in Cannes

Benetti's President, Paolo Vitelli says: "We are proud to have delivered another Giga yacht in our Giga season. "Lana" is an example of excellence: outstanding quality, unique style, and an icon of Made in Italy. A particular thanks to the Owner who trusted Benetti for this creation. We are happy to have met all his expectations."

From her well-proportioned exterior to her sumptuous interior, "Lana" was designed in her entirety by the Benetti in-house design teams. The naval architecture is by P.L.A.N.A. - PierLuigi Ausonio Naval Architecture. She is powered by twin diesel-electric engines of 2,800 kW each, has a top speed of 18.5 knots and a range of 5,500 Nm at 12 knots.

Superior onboard experience

"Lana" can accommodate up to 12 guests across eight cabins, including 7 VIP rooms on the Main Deck. Located on the Wheelhouse Deck, the full-beam master suite is a highlight on board, with the generous suite featuring a luxurious contemporary design and two balconies providing magnificent ocean views.

In addition to a yacht crew of 34 to tend to guests' every need, just some of the stand out features her guests can enjoy are a large swimming pool on the Sun Deck, a luxurious spa complete with hammam, gym and massage room, a grand piano and a touch-and-go helipad.

Imperial's Director, Julia Stewart, says: "Being linked to the second 100m+ superyacht ever delivered in Italy by the private shipyard Benetti is a pride that we share with the builder. It was a pleasure to collaborate once again with their professional teams and their dynamic behaviour in a proactive atmosphere. "Lana" is bold, unique, sleek and aggressive, boasting high ceilings up to 2.7m in height and mixing perfect experience at sea and unforgettable charter moments.

She is now entering our Charter Central Agency fleet, already with a large array of destinations in her bucket list that she will explore. "Lana" has an incredible appeal that will make her, for sure, the next decade superyacht charter yacht to experience in her range once in a lifetime. We would like to thank the Imperial team behind this impressive success, their hard work and extreme dedication to making the dream of our client come true."

Building Giga yachts

Benetti's Giga yacht construction program is the result of significant investment that the shipyard has made over time both in terms of technical resources and investments to allow the upgrade of the infrastructure and the construction processes.
