Lusben has recently relaunched 171ft (52m) VIANNE (formerly TOMMY) following an extensive refit at Lusben’s Livorno yard. Originally launched by Benetti in 1995, the steel and aluminum yacht’s recent refit includes a completely refurbished engine room and new interior design.

Redesigned and Relaunched

With works overseen by Lusben’s in-house team, in collaboration with the new owner, and Azimut Benetti’s interior yacht design division, Yachtique, other upgrades include changes to the owner’s suite and lower deck guest area to give a more modern feel, while preserving the original design.

A guiding factor in the refit included upgrades to significantly reduce consumption and emissions without compromising on comfort. These include the installation of zero-speed electric fin stabilizers by CMC Marine for high-performance and silent running, new generators and engines, and a new air conditioning system.

Now that VIANNE’s technical launch has been complete, sea trials will begin, with an expected delivery date to her excited new owner by end of May 2023.
