Benetti revives tradition with slipway launch
Following in the wake of the Benetti yachts dating back to 1873, the shipyard has completed another launch from the historic 56-metre inclined slipway, which, unique in Italy for boats of this size, is still fully operational at the historic shipyards of Viareggio.
The Diamond 44m is the fibreglass flagship of the Benetti Class category. There are three more units under construction.
Lucky Wave is the third unit of Diamond 44m.
The fibreglass of the exterior of the boat, used in all models of the class category, is worked with epoxy fillers and painted white to achieve the highest levels of brilliance and aesthetic finish, says Benetti.
Onboard comfort is enhanced by solutions that reduce noise and vibrations to a minimum: from the transmission system with elastic joints and thrust bearings, to the floorboards and floating bulkheads on all decks (from the lower to the upper deck), down to the valve bypass of the engines, and up to the soundproofing of the exhaust pipes in the main areas.
