Striking new design takes to the sea
The 213-foot (65-meter) Nataly, a new custom yacht to roll out of the Benetti’s Livorno facility a few months ago, is the first Benetti to feature a plumb bow. Redman Whiteley Dixon (RWD) handled the exterior and interior design, emphasizing architectural features. Inside, the designers re-created the feel of a world-class hotel, employing a staggering level of detail. Full-length windows in the main salon and full-beam master suite shed a lot of natural light on a modern interior done in walnut, makassar ebony, zebrano and teak, as well as black and white marble and stonework. Rosewood, wengé and sandstone accent the central staircase, and custom-made hardware is used throughout. Nataly’s generous accommodations include six lower-deck staterooms, an owner’s suite plus generous accommodations for a crew of 16. Powered by two Caterpillar 3516B 2,260-bhp diesel engines, the steel-hulled Nataly will reach a top speed of 16 knots, a 15-knot cruising speed and will have a range of about 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.
