The Imagination 47 metre line is a new line of semi-displacement mega yacht constructed entirely in aluminium. Its design with innovative lines has already been awarded the Best World Trophy 2010 in Cannes on 11 September. Bearing the code FB 501 (indicating the boatyard and construction number) was lauched the last summer, and this is the first yacht in the new Benetti Imagination 47 line.
The conception of the new Imagination 47 is based on the positive experience with the 43-metre motor yacht Diane (FB 236), launched in 2007, and it is the first Benetti motor yacht to be made with a semi-displacement hull entirely in aluminium. For this reason the new Imagination 47 is the outcome of a tried and tested technical alliance perfectly fine-tuned by Benetti. The result is a solid yet lightweight yacht with an optimised hull, offering excellent performance and, at the same time, a long range.
Thanks to its technical characteristics, this yacht from the new aluminium range possesses marked transoceanic qualities and can safely face any type of navigation. Its bulb hull has water lines designed to enable the boat to reach high speeds (calculated at around 23.5 knots in average load conditions). Its technical fittings have been cleverly combined with Stefano Natucci’s innovative concept design and exterior design. The outer lines of Imagination 47 run fluidly, forming soft, sleek curves that blend the hull with the superstructure.
Like the exterior, the internal fittings of the FB 501 are coherent with the modern spirit of the yacht, exclusively interpreted in the interior design of François Zuretti. The elegant style of the various areas is in perfect harmony with current luxury trends based on a simple, linear design. The modern, dynamic style of the new Imagination 47 draws the eye and attracts attention; it heralds the future image of the big Benetti mega yachts.
