Imperial and Benetti launch 107m Project FB-277


Imperial is proud to announce the successful launch of PROJECT FB-277 (Benetti, 107m), an exciting superyacht built in collaboration with Italian shipyard Benetti. Imperial acted as Owner’s Representative and Build Supervisor for this striking vessel. PROJECT FB-277 will be available for charter exclusively through Imperial from summer 2019. PROJECT FB-277 is a stunning creation of epic proportions with her steel hull and aluminium superstructure. Powered by a diesel–electric propulsion system, this 107-metre-long superyacht with a maximum beam of 15.2m and full displacement of 3,300 tons becomes today one of the biggest yachts ever built in Italy by a private shipyard. Her elongated and linear profile showcase a contemporary and minimal design, emphasised by balanced ribbons of glazing and a very tasteful interior decoration incorporating brightly coloured furniture and wide windows. This brand new vessel delivered jointly by Imperial and Benetti is set to become one of the most thrilling and exclusive charter superyachts available on the market from summer 2019, setting new standards in her range. Julia Stewart, Imperial Director, says: “ PROJECT FB-277 marks an important step in Imperial history by being one of the most exclusive vessels available for charter. This milestone shows the positive influence of our young but growing company on the superyacht industry, which is behind some of the most exciting superyacht deliveries of the last decade. PROJECT FB-277 is also a major improvement for our industry in general, with her extraordinary proportions, her impressive high ceilings on both exterior and interior sides, and the fantastic on-board amenities. From a breathtaking Beach Club with hammam to her giant pool on sun deck, through to her touch-and-go helipad and her versatile, tasteful 8-cabin layout, PROJECT FB-277 represents the utmost luxury for all superyacht enthusiasts planning a tailor-made charter journey. We are proud to deliver a successful superyacht, and we look forward to seeing her sporty, bold lines cruising the seven seas.” Benetti’s CEO Franco Fusignani adds “We are thrilled to see the launch of this beautiful Giga yacht, the first of three currently under construction in parallel in Livorno. PROJECT FB-277 is, in reality, more beautiful and impressive than we could ever have possibly imagined. With this launch, we have taken the first vital step in strengthening our brand in order to offer the same outstanding high-end vessels we are already known for in the megayacht sector to the giga yacht sector. Today, Benetti is the only private shipyard in Italy, and one of very few anywhere in the world, with the capacity and capabilities to build yachts over 80 metres long. This gigayacht puts Benetti on the map for building yachts measuring over 100 metres.” With delivery scheduled for early summer 2019, PROJECT FB-277 is already open for pre-bookings exclusively through the Charter team at Imperial. She will immediately enter the restricted circle of the most exclusive and impressive vessels available for luxury charter journeys. Charter information exclusively available upon request.
