Logica 160 motor yacht by Benetti Sail Division
Benetti Sail Division is working on a new tri-deck superyacht called the Logica 160. The BSD Logica 160 motor yacht features elegant lines and a low profile designed by Luca Brenta .
The BSD Logica 160 is based on a specific client request for a steel and aluminium displacement motor yacht under 500gt. The Logica 160 motor yacht boasts several innovative layout features, such as a foredeck designed for the owner’s use with a swimming pool measuring 7m x 3m that may also feature a double bottom that can be raised to provide a dance floor. On each side of the swimming pool there are deck hatches for water toys and a crew tender. The main tender garage is located amidships leaving the lower deck aft free for a VIP cabin and spa area. There are another two guest cabins and a VIP cabin located on the same deck level forward of the tender bay, and the master cabin is located on the upper deck and enjoys forward-facing views. Particular attention is being paid to interior ceiling heights with continuous window areas while keeping the overall profile low and streamlined.
The Benetti Sail Division Logica 160 motor yacht features CAT C32 ACERT C (1319 hp @ 1800 rpm) engines and will have a maximum speed of over 16 knots and a range of nearly 3,000 nm at a cruising speed of just under 15 knots. Engineering on the Logica 160 is already at an advanced stage and the project is entering the final design feasibility phase.
Managing Director of Benetti Sail Division, Simone Marconcini said the following at the Cannes International Boat Show, “Our strategy is to create unique yachts that are very different from anything else available in today’s market”, “with an eye on the market for mid-sized customisable yachts, which is where we believe future demand will be focussed. With a new and updated range, we’ve maintained our existing client base, but we’re also aiming at a new segment of the market with projects such as the Logica series.”
