Fa­bio Er­met­to Be­net­ti’s COO ex­plai­ned: “The fact the ow­ner has co­me back to us con­firms the good work we ha­ve been ca­pa­ble of and the kind of qua­li­ty whi­ch we’ve al­ways been de­li­ve­ring.

FEAD­SHIP LETANI BUILT IN RE­CORD TI­ME - Fead­ship laun­ched 35 me­tre “Letani” for a Far Ea­st client la­st mar­ch. De­si­gned to crui­se al­so in shal­low wa­ters and to ac­cess the smal­le­st Eu­ro­pean ma­ri­nas, Scan­di­na­via, In­dian ocean and Asia.this

new Fead­ship bea­ts the pre­vious re­cord in terms of ti­me ta­ken to build and de­li­ver.

Says “Letani” ow­ner who is to da­te the youn­ge­st client the shi­pyard has ever had.“ea­ch ti­me I see a Fead­ship two thoughts co­me to mind: the fir­st, ’that is real­ly a ve­ry spe­cial yacht’ and the se­cond, ‘I want to get off my boat and step on­to a Fead­ship’. And now it is real­ly ex­ci­ting for me to climb on board of my Fead­ship. The on­ly pie­ce of ugly news about this laun­ching is that we’ve lo­st out on a gui­ded tour of the shi­pyard... We we­re ma­de to feel we we­re part of the fa­mi­ly from the mo­ment the keel was li­ned up and buil­ding a Fead­ship has been a ma­gni­fi­cent ex­pe­rien­ce”. Two mon­ths la­ter in May ano­ther 35 me­tre na­med “CID” hit the wa­ter.this mo­del too was built by a spor­ty athle­tic ow­ner who­se choi­ce fell on this Fead­ship li­ne for its glo­be­trot­ter qua­li­ties and for its re­du­ced draught. “CID” will in fact be­gin wi­th crui­sing bet­ween Fjords and the Me­di­ter­ra­nean to then cross over to Me­xi­co and Ba­ja California.

This su­pe­rya­cht looks mu­scle bound wi­th design work by Ful­vio De Si­mo­ne. The interior decor is su­re­ly mo­dern, fea­tu­ring di­screet lu­xu­ry and an open interior lay­out de­si­gned by Achil­le Sal­va­gni. On Sa­tur­day 29th of April, M/Y “N2H” third unit from the prin­ce Shark li­ne hit the wa­ter at Rossinavi’s plan­ts in Pi­sa. By com­pa­ri­son to si­ster ships laun­ched in 2013 and 2014, “N2H” sports a di­spla­cing hull and ae­sthe­ti­cal­ly dif­fe­rent for its mo­re clas­si­cal li­nes wi­th a blue free­board and top­si­des. Con­struc­tion ma­te­rials too are mo­re tra­di­tio­nal sin­ce the hull is in steel wi­th alu­mi­nium al­loy su­per­struc­tu­re. In the cour­se of the laun­ching the mea­ning of the na­me “N2H” was al­so re­vea­led, and it not on­ly re­minds of a for­mu­la li­ke “C02” for exam­ple but sim­ply stands for “Ni­ce to Ha­ve”.
