Benetti returns to Monaco and chooses the world's most exclusive boat show for the public premiere of the fleet's flagship, 108-meter giga yacht "IJE", the largest boat on display at this year's event.

Moored with this giga yacht will be the 65-meter mega yacht "Zazou" with her unmistakable Blu Carinthia steel hull, and the first unit of Diamond 44M, a majestic 44-meter fiberglass yacht. Both are making their international debut at the event.

Benetti yachts are perfectly at home in a location like the Principality of Monaco, traditionally a symbol of exclusiveness, elegance and charm. This is why the Tuscan shipyard, synonymous with excellence in the world of large yachts, technology and innovation, is showcasing for the very first time to the world the 108-meter giga yacht "IJE", the 65-meter mega yacht "Zazou" and the first unit of the Diamond 44M, a 44-meter fiberglass yacht.

The flagship not only of the Benetti fleet, but also of the entire Monaco Yacht Show, the giga yacht "IJE", which appears at the show in collaboration with the broker Burgess, offers guests over 1,000 square meters of exteriors on five decks. UK-based design firm RWD developed the exterior design and decor, creating areas devoted to entertainment and relaxation on every deck. From the heated swimming pool on the Main Deck, via the dining areas on the Owner and Main Decks, to the collection of water toys and tenders, this giga yacht is designed and built to enjoy life on board to the full. The high points of the 108-meter steel yacht are the Observation Deck and the outdoor fireplace on the Bridge Deck, while the interiors by the Benetti Interior Style Department are also a joy to discover.

Designed to cross thousands of miles of ocean without needing to refuel, "IJE" has a majestic and determined profile as befits the largest yacht that an Italian privately-owned shipyard has ever built, representing the perfect combination of important engineering features and the customary elegance of the Benetti brand.

The Monaco Yacht Show will provide the backdrop for another important debut on the international stage. Also making her first appearance on the scene, M/Y "Zazou" is a 65-meter full custom steel yacht designed to offer 12 guests endless opportunities for relaxation, leisure activities and amusement, all set in an elegant and modern ambience. At their complete disposal is one of the largest Sun Decks in the category: 20 meters equipped with an infinity pool, a gym, a bar, a comfortable sheltered dining space and a sunbathing area that converts into a magical open-air cinema in the evening. The exteriors on the Upper and Main Decks have areas set aside for conversation and relaxation, while inside, among the other comforts for guests to enjoy, are a massage room and a second hi-tech screening room with every comfort.

For this mega yacht, Giorgio M. Cassetta has created dynamic exterior lines that set off the vessel's sleek profile with explosive effect. The indoor spaces are enhanced by elegant furnishing details by Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, the Dutch firm behind the interior and, in part, the exterior design, not to mention the full custom built-in furniture and numerous design accessories created especially for this project.

Also making her official debut is the first unit of the refined Diamond 44M, with exterior styling by Giorgio M. Cassetta and interiors by the Benetti Interior Design Department.

These three yachts are emblematic examples of Benetti's design and construction capabilities, the shipyard which over the years has demonstrated its ability to keep the brand's glamorous heritage alive, offering models with an elegant and timeless appeal, as well as all the technical know-how needed to build any boat that owners dare to desire.

Benetti will be at the Monaco Yacht Show from September 22 to 25, 2021 - Stand QE28
