SEANNA is an 65-metre (213ft) full displacement tri-deck yacht designed and built by Benetti, and delivered in 2011. She has a steel hull built to Lloyds classification and aluminium superstructure that combines classic Benetti motifs such as covered companionways and streamlined, sculpted mullions with the clean, crisp lines of a modern yacht. The interior design and styling are by Redman Whiteley Dixon and Susan Young.
Her exterior highlights include an elevated observation deck above the large sundeck which has an enclosed lounge/dining/party room amidships and plenty of open-air space forward and aft. There’s also a Portuguese bridge with sunpads on the forward coachroof, and two partially shaded aft decks. She also has an indoor/outdoor gymnasium on the lower deck with a hinged wall that folds out to serve as a sea-level terrace and a large beach club in her stern.
The sundeck has an elevated jacuzzi pool up front, plus a forward-facing bar and lounge, and a wide-open space for sun loungers astern. The upper aft deck is spacious with an impressive 14-seat teak dining table as its centrepiece, plus a bar, buffet and several clusters of lounge seating. The main deck aft is another outdoor lounge with its own bar.
Her 1,426GT interior is arranged to host up to 14 guests on board in six double and two twin cabins. Key features of the design scheme include fine Italian leathers, rich walnut veneers and nickel inlays. There’s a grand marble foyer on the main deck and a notably high standard of finish throughout.
The main salon converts to a cinema and there’s a separate TV lounge alongside the formal dining room. She also has a library on the main deck and a massage room with two private beds. The skylounge above is an elegant lounge bar.
All the way forward on the main deck, the master suite includes two full bathrooms, a separate study and a private lounge. There’s also a VIP cabin on the upper deck and five others – three doubles, two twins – down below.
Her main tender is an 8.5m custom built wooden StanCraft speedboat with a 350hp inboard engine and elegant classic lines. She also carries a 7.5m Nouvrania RIB and her inventory of watersports equipment includes a pair of Yamaha Waverunners.
Twin Caterpillar 3516B diesels with a combined 4,522hp give a top speed of 17kts, a 15kt cruising speed and a maximum range at 12kts of 5,000nm. Two pairs of Naiad zero speed stabilisers are fitted.
