Informal evenings are hosted on the open Upper deck, where we find the 14 place dinner table and mobile bar; while inside there is another small salon with sofas, entertainment area, and a corner bar. Fun and relaxation are the central themes that determine the upper deck layout, where we also find a small movie theater (which if needs be, can be converted into an extra cabin), a wine cellar and a cold-box for cigars.

Moving forward we find the entryway into the crews quarters, with a cabin for the chief stewardess, the captain’s cabin, and the radio room with direct access to the bridge. Here we have yet a further example of high technology, with five large touchscreens that integrate all the command, management and monitoring functions of the ships systems.

From the stern, we now come to the Sun deck and all its features. A marvelous mosaic Jacuzzi is surrounded by sunbathing recliners, mobile bar, barbecue grill and dinette. The whole area can be sheltered from the wind thanks to a double sliding-doored veranda, but the six window skylight always leaves a view of the starry heavens. All the external furnishings are in dark painted teak while the marble is rustic travertine.

Whether inside or outside, all lighting aboard is furnished by a highly customized LED illumination system, with the possibility to individually control each fixture and create infinitely refined lighting scenarios.

And in following the Benetti tradition, the Under lower deck is devoted exclusively to the yachts systems. Including the engine room, the deck also has a large cold room with refrigerators, icebox, an area reserved exclusively for all the infotainment systems aboard, and Performance wise, Illusion I is very kind in a seaway, and has a 15 knot fast cruising speed. At the 12 knot normal cruising speed, the Illusion I yacht has a 5,000 nautical mile range. Propulsion is provided by twin CAT 3512C motors, developing 1,380 kw each. Generators are twin CAT C9 Gensets for 200 kw each, plus a third CAT C4.4 generator for 82 kw.

Illusion I superyacht is a very refined yacht with a very original décor, designed to furnish maximum possible comfort at sea, with record low levels of noise and vibration, and proudly maintains Benetti’s high class reputation worldwide.

Motor yacht Illusion I will be available for a luxury yacht charter in the Caribbean and Bahamas at a weekly rate starting from $350,000.
