Benetti | 60m | 2008 | 12
Launched in 2008 by the world-renowned Benetti shipyard, the magnificent custom-built motor yacht, St. David, was built with a single purpose in mind: to achieve the absolute pinnacle of contemporary charter excellence.
“Offering a stunning exterior space, superb volume and a flexible interior where all cabins other than the master can be twin or double, St. David is the perfect choice for family getaways, corporate events or picturesque cruising”, Geoff Moore, managing director at West Nautical.
St. David has finished an extensive refit in 2017 to provide maximum versatility and operational efficiency. Boasting a full yacht and tender paint, all new glass, polished interior marble and fresh varnish work, renewed sundeck cushions covers along with a new exterior marble countertop and additional extensive technical work, no expense was spared when her owner set out to update the ultimate superyacht for luxury cruising.
For now, the renewed and sparking St. David is off for a successful charter season in the Eastern Mediterranean, where guests can take advantage of the vessel’s welcoming sundeck, capacious hot tub, first-class entertainment system and original selection of water toys. St. David will then be presented for sale at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
There are still some windows available to book her for charter throughout summer 2017 and further information can be found on Yachtfolio, or by contacting the West Nautical charter department. Those wishing to view St. David at the Monaco show can make an appointment and request to view all information by contacting West Nautical.
Awarded ‘Best Charter Yacht’ by Robb Report in 2009, she is innovatively styled both inside and out and showcases a study of artisanship in every respect. Her opulent interior sleeps up to 12 guests in six impressive staterooms including a magnificent master suite, one VIP stateroom and four doubles. Split over two levels, the master suite features a sumptuous lounge area with bathroom with a raised bedroom for the ultimate in privacy and luxury. With panoramic views and beautiful staircase she offers a truly unique charter experience.
Throughout her interior living spaces intricate craftsmanship is finished to the highest standards, evident in her beautiful mosaic floors, sculptured tables that rise and fall, detailed marquetry and magnificent sweeping spiral staircase. The Baroque style architecture and Italian Riviera style creates a lavish atmosphere on board whilst a floating staircase which spans 3 decks is topped by a skylight and peeks into the bottom of the sun-deck pool to add an element of design pedigree and interest.
Outside, her decks are equally impressive with her sundeck offering shaded areas for comfortable relaxation, a large pool, and a huge entertainment area. Her experienced owner endeavoured to build a superyacht that would cater to all ages and vacation types. From watching movies under the stars at the outdoor cinema and trying out all manner of watersports to partying the night away with friends in her private nightclub, St. David offers a charter experience like no other.
