On Saturday, June 9, Benetti launched their latest Benetti Vision 145' superyacht Checkmate, in the Darsena Italia Basin, the historic home of the Benetti yard.Unit BV018 is the 15th yacht built in Benetti's Vision line and was commissioned for a US owner.

After the traditional breaking of the champagne bottle across her bows, the yacht slipped smoothly into the Mediterranean from a specially built ramp to the notes of Giuseppe Verdi's “Và Pensiero”.

Present at the ceremony were the owner (a well known surgeon from Washington, D.C.) and his family, together with all the Benetti staff involved in her almost two year long construction and fitting out.

CEO of the Mega-yacht division of the the Azimut/Benetti Group, Vincenzo Poerio, declared during the ceremony: “We are particularly proud of our latest launch, the 100th fiberglass yacht built in Viareggio since 1998. This is a further demonstration of Benetti's ability to listen to the Client and interpret his specific needs; and above all, another example of a perfect blend between timeless design, world class construction, safety and an extremely high quality on-board life, both for the owner and his crew”.
