NEW LAUNCH FOR BENETTI: M/Y “BLAKE”
Last Saturday the 26th, in the presence of 300 invited guests, the 50-meter Full Custom Mega Yacht M/Y “Blake” has been launched from the slipway at the Viareggio shipyard, ready to set off in comfort and silence on the long cruises she is designed for.
Benetti is proud to announce the eleventh slipway launch since 1999, year of construction of Via Coppino shipyard, in Viareggio. M/Y “Blake”, the longest GRP hull and aluminium superstructure yacht ever build by Benetti, raised her first waves with an impressive dive from the 8%-gradient slipway at the Viareggio production facility. The shipyard is the only one in Italy equipped to handle this particular type of launch ceremony, for superyachts between 40 and 50 meters in length, max draft of 2,6 metres and weighing up to 350 tonnes.
As the Company did back in March 2016, when the 45-meter Full Custom Mega Yacht M/Y “Domani” dived into the water for the first time from the same slipway, Benetti once again invited over 300 guests to this unusual ceremony, including local authorities, friends and employees, who enjoyed the event together with a large crowd of curious who made their way to the Darsena Italia docks.
