World debut of the second Mediterraneo 116
M/Y Mr Loui at the Miami Yacht Show 2018
Benetti is attending the US show once again this year, from February 15 to 19, where it will be exhibiting M/Y Mr Loui, the latest Mediterraneo 116 unit, with exteriors by Giorgio M. Cassetta and interiors designed by Ezequiel Farca and the Benetti Interior Style Department. The exteriors of this 35.5 meter fiberglass and carbon fiber yacht in the Class Product Lines feature big glazed surfaces and sleek, sinuous lines, while the interiors stand out for their brightness and superior level of comfort. One of the strong points of the design is its focus on convivial spaces, based on the owner’s desire to create ‘settings for the whole family, with large conversation areas’. The standout features are the Sun Deck, which covers an area of over 80 square meters and has a continuous walkable surface almost 16 meters long, two big dining spaces, and large sunbathing areas furnished with sofas, deck chairs and armchairs, and the cockpit in the bow, with an outdoor sofa integrated into the bridge structure to create a private terrace. The Main Deck has a roomy lounge, consisting of areas for dining and relaxation, with three-meter-long glazed surfaces that flood the space with light and create a sense of continuity with the world outside. The bow area on this deck is given over to the full-beam owner’s suite with panoramic windows.
