Benetti's most recent launch, 90-meter (295-foot-3-inch) Lionheart—the builder's largest yacht to date—was spotted recently in Livorno.

Built for a repeat client, Lionheart will be delivered later this year. The client took delivery of a 63-meter (207-foot) Benetti of the same name back in 2006. That vessel is now known as Lioness V.

Lionheart overtakes Benetti's 86-meter Kingdom 5KR, which launched in 1980, as the builder's largest launch to date.

Throughout the construction period, the project has been well protected from the public, although it is now known that Stefano Natucci and Benetti collaborated on the exterior design, while Green & Mingarelli Design handled the interior, which contains an elevator connecting the four decks. No other information is known at time of press.

From the looks of her, Lionheart casts a rather sporty appearance, with a curvy superstructure comprising all four decks. The garage seems to be forward—a popular new design trend that affords massive volume to play with back aft—with side-opening doors for easy launching of the yacht's tender(s).
