The yard has launched 40m Happy me, the fourteenth hull of its Classic Supreme 132 unit. The owner, a German industrialist, is reportedly very impressed by his experience of working with the yard: “I’m very grateful for and impressed with the passion and devotion shown by Benetti throughout the construction of this yacht.”

Happy me features spacious exteriors, with a 100m2 sun deck and an upper deck where a lounge area is joined by a jacuzzi located forward of the pilot house.

Her exteriors were designed by Stefano Righini, while the interiors are the work of François Zuretti. On the main deck the owner’s cabin in the bow is accessed through a spacious lounge area that features big windows in both side walls to filter in a lot of natural light.

The lower deck is home to the guest accommodation, made up of two VIP and two guest double cabins. In the bow of the same deck, separated from the guest area, is the crew accommodation, made up of seven berths in four cabins, a kitchen and a small dining space. The captain’s cabin is on the upper deck.

According to data supplied by The Superyacht Agency, Benetti currently has three more vessels in build for this year. The upcoming edition of The Superyacht Shipyards Report, due to be published in March, will feature interviews with the principals of Italy’s most dominant shipyards, including Paolo and Giovanna Vitelli, president and vice-president of the Azimut Benetti group.
