Benetti released more details and pictures of their 50m motor yacht 'VICA' launched earlier this year.

She is the first yacht from Benetti which uses a fiberglass hull with an aluminum superstructure. A distinctive feature of her exterior lines are the full height windows for a lot of daylight in the interior.

Her sundeck is typically equipped with a sunbathing area, a bar, dining and a jacuzzi. The forward area of the sun deck can be transformed into a touch and go helicopter pad. Another sunbathing and relaxing area is located in front of the bridge. Here is also a second jacuzzi.

Her interior was designed by Benetti in-house and the owner’s personal interior designer. Benetti used cherry- and rosewood for the interior. The LED lights can be controlled by iPad.

The layout is classical oriented. The master suite is located on the main deck with additional space on the upper deck. Four guest cabins to host a total number of 8 guests are located on the lower deck behind the crew quarter for 12 members in 6 cabins.

For comfort during cruises, Benetti uses a “special elastic link” between engines and propeller shafts. Her two Caterpillar C32 Acert (970 KW each) diesel engines power her up to 15.5 knots with an economical speed of 12 knots and a range of 4000 nautical miles. Vica will use a system by Najad for stabilization at anchor and underway.
