Benetti Latitude: Contemporary Art Deco Comfort
The Benetti Latitude is a stunning private yacht charter, surrounding guests in the glamour and elegance of transatlantic crossings from the 1930s. Delivering 52 meters/170 feet of art deco luxury, this well-appointed yacht seamlessly incorporates flawless service and abundant options on board. A 2008 build, this exceptional craft from the revered Italian boatyard exceeds every expectation. A 2013 refit ensures every system is top of art, achieving entertainment and comfort for the most discriminating guests.
Designed with exteriors by Stefano Natucci, Latitude cuts a distinctive profile on the water. Complimented by interiors from Mauro Izzo and the Benetti in-house team, Latitude set the bar high as the first of Benetti’s Diamond Collection.
Pampering 12 guests in six sumptuous staterooms, Latitude cruises comfortably at 14 knots with a range of 4,500 to 5,000 nm, with power in reserve to be called upon when requested. Chic white furnishings appear at every level, highlighted with beautiful woods and red accents, sparked with gleaming silver. The beauty of ray galuchat introduces unique artisan leatherwork. Thoughtful installations of LED lighting create charming overhead lighting, particularly when twinkling atop the al fresco dining table.
Loaded with active features, Latitude welcomes water play with a full library of equipment. Zapata’s superior toys offer guests options from the fly board, racing jetpack, and racing hoverboard. A Jet Surf surfboard, reaching speeds of 45 knots, and Laser sailboat are proven guest favorites. Kitesurf kits, jet skis, snorkel equipment, wetsuits, Sea Bobs, a Sea Doo, paddle boards, water skis, knee board, and towables all benefit from the chase boat powered by two 350 BHP Mercury engines, and a custom tender with dual 260 BHP Yanmar engines. A Drone Phantom 4, inflatable kayaks, and inflatable water park with slide complete the beach club.
A fully-equipped gym stocked with exercise equipment invites more ambitious guests to continue workouts on board. A Techno treadmill and exercise bike, free weights, bell weights, crossover cable gym system, boxing gloves and pads, pull up bar, skipping ropes, yoga mats and Pilates ball ensure no muscle group, nor exercise style, goes unattended.
For less active but equally enjoyable entertainment, a gracious sun deck boasts its own salon, large Jacuzzi, abundant sun pads, and outdoor cinema. Accessible from the all-deck elevator, a glass crown atop the sun deck provides a jaw-dropping view as guests are lifted to the top of the yacht. A second posh salon serves the main deck, along with a formal dining room. Sporting additional refinements, Latitude nestles fine wines in an appropriate cellar on the lower deck, also serving laundry and storage needs.
An exceptional crew, highly trained in teamwork, protocol etiquette, guest services, body language, and every facet of hospitality underscores Latitude as a preferred choice for luxury yacht charters. Highly stable, with years of working together and experience in all types of sea conditions, the Captain, Chief Officers, and service crew continue to receive the highest recommendations from those they are privileged to serve, ensuring an enjoyable experience on board the yacht for all types of guests.
High season at $255,948/€231,000, and low season at $223,980/€203,000 offer recent examples of weeklong charter rates in the Western Mediterranean.
