Making its world premier at the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show, the new 58m ‘Illusion I’ is the latest jewel from the Benetti family. The four decked steel and aluminium M/Y was designed by Green & Mingarelli and built at the Benetti Livorno shipyard for a European owner. The striking external design of the yacht is the result of the collaboration between the Benetti design team, the owner, and his design staff. Designed for commercial charter use, the owner will also use the Illusion I privately. In addition to the owner’s cabin, the interior layout includes one VIP cabin and four guest cabins, giving the yacht a total capacity of 12 + 1 passengers.
