Setting Sail

It was in our February 2011 issue that we reintroduced you to Benetti Sail Division and its partnership with renowned sailboat designer Luca Brenta. The duo had designed a new Logica line of full-displacement megayachts with sailboat characteristics and were looking for the first owner to begin to cut steel.

What a difference a year makes.

This month, the Logica 98 left the BSD sheds in Viareggio and headed to the water to be fit out.

Originally designed as a four-cabin yacht, a fifth cabin has been worked into the layout. And it's no afterthought either—it's been designated the VIP. 

The interior fit-out will include Canaletto walnut floors and oak furniture in the main saloon. The galley will feature Miele and Gaggenau appliances as well as a granite floor.

We'll be keeping an eye on her construction, but so far, she's not a bad yacht from a sailboat designer...
