M/Y “Triumph”, a 65.40 meters full custom yacht with sleek and clean lines spanning her six decks. The steel displacement hull and the superstructure, made with aluminum, are painted in a classic white. The external lines were penned by Giorgio M. Cassetta, complementing the naval architecture by Benetti. Green & Mingarelli Design contributed to the interiors, adding to the work done in-house by Benetti. The yacht, which accommodates twelve people in six double cabins, offers a host of luxurious amenities, including a touch and go helipad located on the bow, sauna, fully equipped gym, massage room, jacuzzi and 70 square metres of beach club with a drop-down platform. The aggressive streamlined exteriors were designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta notably using large curved windows to balance the yacht’s impressive presence. Green & Mingarelli Design arranged the elegant interiors and many furnishing details, closely following the direction of the Benetti Interior Style Department. All the artwork onboard is created by renowned British photographer David Yarrow.
The Sun Deck sits at the top the yacht on the sixth deck, not always present on yachts of this size. The high-perch features an elegant jacuzzi, comfortable seating and a table for Six that can be used even while navigating, thanks to ample wind sheltering. The sky lounge on the Upper Deck blends seemlessly with the welcoming aft outdoor spaces, outfitted with Indian Ocean custom furniture. The owner’s apartment, set over a sprawling 130 square meter area, takes full advantage of the deck’s spaciousness and stunning views.
The aft cockpit on the Main Deck is an outdoor spot, sheltered yet in contact with the environment, perfect for conversation and relaxation at any time of day. Amidships, the large and bright living area, consisting of a dining and relaxation space, is complete with every comfort. Also on the Main Deck, a large VIP stateroom considered as a second master dedicates an opulent suite to the guests.
The beach area of the Lower Deck proposes an area of 70 square meters with immediate access to the sea. The sleeping area amidships includes four double cabins for an additional eight guests. Also on this deck, in a separate area to guarantee guest privacy, is the modern galley, and at the bow there are the accommodations for crew members.
The engine room hosts a pair of MTU 12V 4000 M53 engines for a maximum speed of 16.5 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots. The range at 12 knots is 4,700 miles.
