The 164ft ALUNYA features exterior yacht design by RWD, naval architecture by PierLuigi Ausonio Naval Architecture, while Benetti’s in-house HUB Design worked closely with the team and yacht owners to complete the interiors to their tastes.
Second Hull in the B.Now Series
Following the launch of LADY I earlier this year, this is the second hull of the B.Now series to be launched by the team. The yacht can accommodate 10-12 guests, depending on whether the owners opt for the former with a five-guest stateroom configuration. Situated on the main deck forward lies the private owner’s suite with a study area, a large ensuite and a private terrace. Her remaining guest staterooms are situated on the lower deck, with a further six cabins for 10 crew.
The innovative yacht design of the Benetti Oasis Deck® redefines a traditional stern, by incorporating hydraulic winged terraces on the port and starboard sides, expanding the deck’s width and creating an oversized 36sqm beach club and outdoor living area.
Up on the stern, guests will enjoy 270-degree views, allowing even greater access to your surrounding areas. The extra-large beach club boasts a glass-walled infinity pool and multiple areas to relax. Once again, connecting guests to nature and the water has been a driving force in the design of ALUNYA.
In her 164ft, ALUNYA offers ample storage space for tenders and toys, concealed within the bow, including a tender up to 18ft, jet skis, and plenty of water toys. The tender is deployed and retrieved through a hydraulically operated hatch located starboard.
Featuring a steel hull and aluminum alloy superstructure, ALUNYA spans an impressive four decks and has a beam of 30ft. She is powered by twin MAN V12 1,400 horsepower engines and two Kohler 118 kW generators that deliver a 4,500 nautical mile range at 12 knots and a max speed of 15 knots, with a pair of electrical stabilizers for those who enjoy long-distance cruising.
Delivered to an experienced yacht owner, who personalized the superyacht to his taste, TWW Yachts introduced the buyer and acted as owner’s representative throughout the build process.
Sebastiano Fanizza, Benetti COO comments, “The B.Now 50 model is certainly one of the most popular models in our history and the addition of the Oasis Deck® made it possible to offer new options to all owners who enjoy close contact with the sea. This new launch and the close collaboration with TWW confirm the commitment that the shipyard has to its customers and partners with greater awareness, thus confirming the brand’s role as a forerunner and leader in yacht design.”
The yacht is on time for delivery scheduled at the end of July this year.
