The Iryna B.Now 50M will be the first of a Family of four models to be presented by Benetti. The vessel that unites modernity, innovation and functionality has officially kicked-off the series of 50, 60 67, and 72-metres models, and is already a bestseller for the Italian shipyard with 20 units sold already.
Benetti claims that thanks to their advanced technology in construction and the development of their hull engineering solutions, delivery times have been reduced by a whopping 30% as compared to market standards.
The 49.9-metre vessel is built with a 9.2-metres beam, weighing in at 499 GT with a maximum draft of 2.6-metres. In collaboration with RWD, a renowned international marine design firm based on the banks of the Beaulieu River, the exterior of the Iryna 50M boasts open spaces and continuity along the decks, offering unbroken visual contact with the water from bow to stern.
Beginning from the top down, the welcoming Upper Deck highlights a relaxing lounging area, sunbed afts, and an outdoor dining space with a media space. The bar counter is located on the foredeck from which cruisers can enjoy the majestic views of the ocean in total privacy. Not just that, the interior lounge can be easily accessed via a sliding door, which leads to the Gym Room from there on.
Moving on to the Main Deck, the spacious living area aft also adopts the theme of continuity, creating a seamless blend from indoors to outdoors. The owner’s suite is located at the front, notably featuring a private balcony, a large dressing room, and a luggage area in which every detail is personalised to each their own.
At the Lower Deck, the 30-square-metre beach area can be accessed both through a gullwing hatch on the starboard side and from the Main Deck stairway. The tranquil terrace constructed at the water’s edge features a pool with clear glazing and light effect, a sauna, a service area complete with a shower, and a space for relaxing in the open-air. A side platform can further be extended to provide supplementary space for guests to socialise outdoors as well.
The interior spots the finest varieties of wood from claddings to ceiling panels. The use of silk-colour frisé maple and smoked oak with contrasting dark shades elegantly harmonises with the ivory leather tanned with natural processes, with the recesses treated with satin-finish sheet palladium that successfully coats the interior with a luxurious touch.
The vessel harbours 12 cabins in total, 6 including the owner and guest cabins that comfortably accommodates 12 persons, and 6 more crew cabins that allow for 9 persons. To ensure privacy on board, the interior is fitted with two stairways with completely separated flows. One reserved for the owner and guests, and the other for the cabin crew. Guests can also use a lift that serves all 3 decks.
The B.Now 50M is, of course, the smallest of the four models that make up the B.Now range. This is indeed a promising start to the series and we can most certainly look forward to the 60, 67, and 72-metre models in due time.
