The launching ceremony for the 44m (145ft) Checkmate, the latest Stefano Righini-drawn Benetti Vision 145, was held on Saturday, June 9, in the Darsena Italia Basin. The black-hulled BV018 is the 15th of Vision series. The client is an eminent American surgeon from Washington DC.
MY Checkmate's François Zuretti-styled interior marries cherry and burr-madrona carpentry and veneers with dark neoclassical inlays.
She has twin 1,300hp C32 Cats and a cruising range of 3,500nm at 12 knots. Her maximum speed is 15 knots.
"We are particularly proud of our latest launch,” says Vincenzo Poerio, CEO of group’s mega-yacht division, not least because she is the 100th fiberglass motoryacht to have been built by the group in Viareggio since 1998.
