Benetti FB268 Seasense: LA interior design
Whjle the elegant exterior lines were created by Dutch designer Cor D. Rover – his first collaboration with Benetti – naval architecture was developed at the yard’s engineering office. The contemporary styled interiors come from the collaboration between Benetti’s designers and the Los Angeles based Area design studio at their world’s debut in the superyacht sector. The layout includes six suites for up to 12 guests.

Benetti FB268 Seasense is a 67-meter full custom superyacht with steel hull and aluminum superstructure, built for an owner who chose the Benetti brand for the first time. The launch ceremony took place in the historic Benetti facility in Livorno (Leghorn), perfectly in time with the production schedule.
The name “Seasense” well identifies the essence of the concept of this superyacht, and is translated into a project that privileges the relationship with the surrounding environment: the shipowner wanted a great deal of external areas to maximize the contact with the sea. In particular, aft of the main deck there’s a large swimming pool with sundeck directly connected to the main salon which, thanks to large sliding doors, further increases the outdoor space available to the guests.
Benetti FB268 Seasense is powered by twin 1380 Kw Caterpillar 35C12C, for a maximum speed of 15.5 knots and a slightly lower cruising pace of 15. Range is reckoned to be 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. The hull is 67 meters long and 10.80 m wide, for a maximum draught of 3.20 m and a displacement of 1,130 tons. The crew has nine cabins, for a total of 14 people.
