A Look at Benetti s Seanna

Repeat clients of Benetti took delivery of Seanna, a 213-footer (65-meter), last summer. Perhaps they like the element of surprise, as they kept details of the megayacht project under wraps while construction was ongoing. She was known simply by her hull number, FB 254. Now that they’re making Seanna available for charter, through the central agency of Burgess. however, they’re keen to have more details be known.

Having previously owned the popular charter megayacht Altitude, a 180-foot (55-meter) Benetti, the owners were familiar with the shipyard. But, since they had purchased Altitude when she was known as Amnesia, and therefore her layout was already set, this presented an opportunity to do things different.

One of the biggest differences is the lack of the customary saloon on the main deck. Instead, Seanna has a cinema, complete with a 100-inch screen and C-shape settee that invites you to settle in with a big bowl of popcorn. If extra friends and family are aboard, Seanna also has additional settees outboard to each side. A quick swipe of a finger across an iPad closes all of the curtains, including blackout ones, for full movie mode. (Similar tablet PCs control pretty much everything in the master suite and six guest staterooms.) Whether the curtains are opened or closed, the ambiance is lovely, yet low-key.

It’s a far cry from the sometimes fussy interior designs seen aboard many megayachts. And that’s exactly what the owners wanted to achieve. According to Tony Dixon of Redman Whiteley Dixon. which was tapped for the job, Seanna’ s owners wanted the interior to reflect the way they like to live. That meant intimate, inviting areas.

In keeping with this, the owners wanted the primary dining area to be outdoors. It’s aft on Seanna’ s bridge deck, nicely shaded and boasting some of the best views from aboard. Seanna still has formal dining inside, but the owners reduced the space devoted to it because they never used the formal dining area aboard Altitude . (They’re not alone: Speak with frequent charter guests and the crews attending to them, and they’ll relate a preference for alfresco meals.) So, some of the space traditionally allocated for indoor dining is now a cozy library, with a gas fireplace fronted with marble.

Other highlights of Seanna include a spa with two treatment rooms that can become one large one. The owners have their own steam room within their suite. There’s also a raised observation lounge on the uppermost deck, with floor-to-ceiling windows fore and aft. Lined in teak, it’s casual and comfortable. It was created by employing some of the space beneath the radar arch that’s usually left open or unused. Then there’s the smattering of Chihuly glass pieces, from the owners’ collection, that mixes with leather panels plus walnut paneling with nickel inlays.

And, of course, there are the toys. Seanna totes an inflatable trampoline, two three-person PWCs, canoes, and more. The tender garage provides the ideal boarding and disembarking area, as well as a spot to watch friends and family take off. The same is true of fold-down platforms to each side above the water.

Seanna offers a variety of ways to delight. Her weekly charter rate for the Med starts at 434,000 euros (about $540,055). Enjoy this slideshow.
