作為意大利製造的精選代表，有獨特設計的Benetti 69 米超級遊艇 ”Spectre” 登上世界超級遊艇頒獎盛典的獎台，贏得「500-1999 噸排水型遊艇」類別的最高殊榮。 由Giorgio M.Cassetta 主理的外部設計和Benetti 內飾設計部門負責的室內設計贏得了權威雜誌《Boat International》的評審的一致好評。 除此之外，”Spectre”的運動性能、由Mulder 設計公司呈現的帶有尖端科技的船身以及Naiad 動力呈現的全面駕控系統Total Ride Control®也是獲獎的重要原因。
在差不多一個月前，69 米的Benetti 超級遊艇 ”Spectre” 在2019年亞洲遊艇頒獎盛典中贏了 ”最佳定制遊艇” 獎項。 今次，”Spectre” 再一次贏了全球最受尊敬的遊艇雜誌之一《Boat International》由設計師、建築師以及各方面專家組建的龐大評審團，以其品質、科技、性能和舒適度等綜合魅力，在世界超級遊艇頒獎盛典上獲得了 ”500-1999 噸排水型遊艇” 類別的最高殊榮。對於這一項最新的殊榮，Paolo Vitelli 表示：”作為19 年來一直被公認為全球最大超級遊艇製造商的Azimut – Benetti 集團的主席，我感到自豪。 當Benetti 透過 ”Spectre” 獲得這項殊榮的同時，我們也在同一時間段完成了3 艘超過100 米的巨型遊艇。 我們正迎接激動人心的銷售季，並在世界各地呈現各種活動。 在我們慶祝集團的五十周年慶典時，這些都是讓人讚歎的成就 “。
超級遊艇 ”Spectre” 的外部設計師Giorgio M.Cassetta 也回應Vitelli 主席的感慨：” 構思、設計和建造Spectre 是一個很難得的機會，我和我的設計團隊都全心投入這個項目，感到很榮幸。 因此，我希望感謝船東John 和Jeanneatte Staluppi 夫婦，感謝參與承建的整個團隊，感謝我的設計師以及所讚賞Spectre 的人。 這艘遊艇在我心中將永遠有一個重要的位置“。
Benetti 的內飾設計團隊為擁有大量空間的 ”Spectre” 呈現出現代氛圍。 採用了大量的鋼鐵作點綴和不同形狀的玻璃表面。 整體氛圍是從19 世紀晚期法國自由風格中獲取靈感，最終呈現了來自新奧爾良和佛羅里達的上世紀三十年代新藝術風格。贏得評審青睞的還有這艘遊艇的出色性能和尖端科技。 其中包括荷蘭Mulder Design 公司的高性能巡航船身以及Naiad 動力打造的創新全面駕控系統Total Ride Control®。 這兩大技術餓傳令 ”Spectre” 的最高航速達到21.2 節，在12 節的速度航行時，巡航範圍可達6500 海裡。
Frank Mulder 表示：”由Mulder Design 公司通過多年努力呈現的高性能巡航船身希望將巡航速度相比同類排水船身提升30%。 這一項科技同時改進了船上的舒適度，提高了長距離航行的燃油使用率，令這艘遊艇得以適合長距離航行”。
Naiad Maritime Group 的行政總裁 John Venables：”我們感謝Benetti 以及船東的信任，讓我們得到把全面駕控系統Total Ride Control®應用在這艘出色遊艇上的機會。 Benetti 讓這一切變為現實。 」這一系統通過兩個翻轉穩定鰭，兩個前置翼，三個獨立控制的船尾槳葉可以改進「Spectre」的巡航穩定性和舒適度”。

A symbol of Made in Italy excellence, with a unique and inimitable design, 69-meter megayacht M/Y “Spectre” is back on the top step of the podium at the World Superyacht Awards in the category “Displacement yachts between 500 and 1,999 tonnes”. The Boat International judges were won over by exteriors designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta and interiors by the Benetti Interior Style Department. M/Y Spectre is also a worthy winner of the award because of its sporty performance, the cutting edge technology of the hull by Mulder Design, and Total Ride Control® by Naiad Dynamics . *1
Almost a month after the Asia Boating Awards 2019, where M/Y “Spectre” won the “Best Custom-Built Yacht” prize, the iconic 69-meter Benetti wins another prestigious new award . This time M/Y “Spectre” has cast its spell over the designers, architects and yachting experts that were part of the jury of Boat International, one of the world’s most highly respected yachting magazines, who gave the yacht the World Superyacht Award in the category “Displacement yachts between 500 and 1,999 tonnes” for its build quality, technology, high performance and cruising comfort.
Paolo Vitelli made the following comment on this latest achievement: “I feel extremely proud to be Chairman of Azimut-Benetti Group , once again recognized as the largest megayacht producer in the world for 19 years now. Benetti is receiving this prestigious award for Spectre and in the meantime is completing 3 Giga yachts of more than 100 mt. We are living a sparkling sales season and hosting great events all over the world. These are great achievements with which I happily celebrate the 50th Anniversary of my Group”.
The words of Chairman Vitelli were echoed by Giorgio M. Cassetta , who designed the exteriors of M/Y “Spectre”. “Imagining, designing and building Spectre was a great opportunity, which my team and I honoured with our most dedicated attention and work. I am deeply grateful for this outstanding recognition and wish to thank deeply John and Jeanette Staluppi, all the team involved in this spectacular construction, my own team who have spared no effort and all those who have shown appreciation for Spectre which will always bear an important place in my heart”. The dynamic exterior design of “Spectre” accommodates spacious interiors by Benetti’s Interior Style Department, which has created a modern yacht embellished by steel detailing and sculpted glazed surfaces. The atmosphere conjures up the mood of 1930s Art Deco found in New Orleans and Florida, which draws its inspiration from late 19th century French Liberty style.
The distinctive features that won the judges over also include the incredible performance and cutting edge technology of the “High Speed Cruising Hull” designed by Dutch firm Mulder Design and the innovative Total Ride Control® system by Naiad Dynamics . These two technologies give “Spectre” a top speed of 21.2 knots , with a range of 6,500 nautical miles at a speed of 12 knots.
“The High Speed Cruising Hull was developed by Mulder Design over the years with the target to increase cruising speed by 30% compared to conventional displacement hulls”, said Frank Mulder , founder of the Dutch studio. “This technology improves on board comfort and increases fuel efficiency at long range speed, thus obtaining serious long range capability”.
“We credit Mulder Design, Benetti and the yacht owner for their forward thinking and confidence in Naiad Dynamics”, said John Venables, CEO of Naiad Maritime Group . “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to apply our Total Ride Control technology for this superb yacht. Benetti has made this a reality”. The system significantly improves the cruising stability of “Spectre” and onboard comfort using two roll stabilizing fins, two forward pitch control canards and three independently controlled stern blades.
