In pictures: On board Benetti’s 50m B.Now superyacht Iryna

Benetti B Now 50 Iryna

Italian luxury boatbuilder Benetti has released the first photos of its new 50-metre B.Now superyacht Iryna, which debuted at the 2022 Monaco Yacht Show in September.

The 50-metre Iryna is the first superyacht from the B.Now series to launch, and was designed in collaboration with British studio RWD. The B.Now series comprises 50, 60, 67 and 72-metre models and is already a Benetti bestseller, with 20 units sold.

Benetti says its construction technology and hull engineering solutions have slashed delivery
times by 30 per cent compared with market standards. Earlier this year, Azimut Benetti Group reported a backlog of over €2 billion for the first time in its history, driven by the success of its diversified product portfolio and the introduction of the B.Now 50M.

RWD has created a continuity along the decks, which offer unbroken visual contact with the water from bow to stern. The lines of the steel and aluminium hull are designed to follow the contours of the windows and bring the four decks together into one.

The lower deck features a 30-square-metre beach club, accessed both through a gullwing
hatch on the starboard side and from the main deck stairway. This terrace at the water’s edge has a pool with clear glazing, a sauna, a service area complete with shower, and a space for relaxing in the open air.

The space can be extended still further by opening a side platform to create another open-air area for socialising.

The four guest cabins are amidships and separated from the crew quarters in the bow area, which provide twin cabins for crew members, a single for the captain, a laundry space and the crew mess.

The upper deck contains relaxation areas, sunbeds aft and an outdoor dining area that can be
converted into a media room. A sliding door gives access to the interior lounge and from there to the gym room. The ship office and wheelhouse in the bow have a separate entrance and are reserved for the captain.

Indoors, the claddings and ceiling panels are made with exclusive woods, such as silk-coloured
frisé maple and smoked oak with its contrasting dark shades.

There are two interior stairways, one reserved for the owner and guests and the other for the crew. Guests can also use a lift serving the lower, main and upper decks.

The boat has a top speed of 15 knots and a range of 4,500 nautical miles, at a speed of 12 knots, without stopping to refuel.
