After the success achieved by Benetti with the Classic line, the prestigious Italian boatyard is offering a motor yacht of 145' with a displacing hull in plastic reinforced by fibreglass, called Vision. Made utilising Benetti's experience gained with 50 and 70-metre yachts, the Vision design is based on the constructive logic normally used for larger dimension yachts. The external design has been developed by the Benetti firm and by Stefano Righini, while the interiors have been designed by Francois Zuretti. The sleeping areas include 10 places for the boat owner and guests and 9 sleeping places for the crew. With an overall length of 45.00 m. and 9.40 m. wide, the Benetti Vision, provided with two MTÙs of 1.190 HP each, reaches a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots, this latter speed allowing Vision to travel for 4,000 miles, thanks to the spacious tanks of 72,700 litres. Designed for long oceanic voyages, Vision has four decks, one of which is under the main deck, and two above. The roomy boat owner's suite is on the main deck, with a double bed in the middle, surrounded by windows at the side and at the bow. Another four staterooms are situated on the lower deck, two double rooms and two single rooms.
