Benetti's FB502 Panthera Superyacht















































Italian superyacht builder Benetti has officially revealed the brand-new FB502 "Panthera" superyacht, the second delivery from the 500 series.

The first one, FB501 superyacht "Imagination", came on the market in 2010; and the third one, FB503, is scheduled for delivery in spring 2014. Constructed at Benetti's Livorno boatyard, the 500-series yachts are 100% aluminium, 47 metres long and 8.8 metres wide. Their hull geometry ensures superior performance, as well as significant stability while underway; noise and vibrations are almost completely eliminated, for enhanced comfort even at higher speeds.

The metallic-painted luxury yacht boasts a fresh and contemporary interior, using tones of grey and contrasting dark woods. It has a maximum speed of 24 knots with a fuel consumption of 1.360 l/h, a 22-knot cruising speed, and a range of 3400 miles at the economical 12-knot speed.
