Italian shipyard Benetti Sail Division has developed a motoryacht line with a strong family look. Just recently, the shipyard launched the first BSD 98 in its Logica series. This new range breaks away from the shipyard’s more traditional models, including graceful canoe-stern yachts that had become their trademark. The Logica’s appealing styling is garnering attention. The shipyard also sold an attractive 147-footer in this series, which is scheduled for a 2013 delivery. Luca Brenta, a skilled sailboat designer, is behind the Viareggio-based shipyard’s new flagship. Brenta transferred typical sailing yacht qualities such as functionality and efficiency to this motoryacht. This 147-foot (45-meter) full-displacement yacht will accommodate up to 10 guests in a master suite, two double and two twin cabins with an extra pullman bed, plus nine crewmembers. The 147 Logica will reach a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots, thanks to her twin Caterpillar 1,320-hp engines. She will get the RINA Green Plus certification. The Logica series is built with steel hulls and aluminum superstructures.
