BASH is a 56m (183.7ft) yacht delivered by Benetti in 2012 to striking exteriors designed by the gifted Stefano Natucci, opulent, classically-styled interiors by Francois Zuretti's Paris studio and naval architecture by Benetti's in-house experts. She has been rigorously maintained and upgraded with her last significant systems overhaul in 2015.
Her large sun deck has a jacuzzi forward protected from the breeze by an arc of privacy glass screens and flanked by two banks of raised sun pads.
Moving aft there is a lounge area for relaxing or informal dining shaded by a removable awning and a fully equipped sit up bar with TV to port shaded by the superstructure. There's a more formal al fresco dining area further aft ahead of a large sun lounging area.
The space is highly adaptable and is suitable to private yoga sessions, gym workouts in the open air or just relaxing in the sun.
Steps lead down to the bridge deck aft where there is another large versatile space with a table seating 12 guests for shaded entertaining and two sofas curling aft port and starboard for relaxing. Sliding doors open onto the sky lounge, which is conviviality itself. Its lounging area, gaming table, fully equipped bar, pantry and guest day head make it well suited to entertainment but with its 42in TV and AV system, it's also suited to family fun.
Forward to starboard is the VIP suite with its huge windows, offering exceptional views from this elevated position.
Outside the VIP suite, encircled by a staircase, is an elevator that services bridge, main and lower decks. The main deck is very large indeed and the social spaces, blessed with excellent natural light, have good headroom and hardwood parquet floors. Moving aft from the lobby there is a formal dining area for 12 guests and sliding screens can create a more intimate space or one suited to business meetings.
There is a large lounge area in the main saloon, symmetrical port and starboard, with a 42in TV and AV equipment. Past a fully equipped marble topped bar to starboard, doors open onto the main deck aft and outside is a lounging area aft and plenty of versatile deck space, making it yet another area with a number of potential uses.
Forward on the main deck is the owner's suite, full beam and split level with a private observation lounge offering excellent 180 degree views forward and a TV for private movie nights.
As well as a huge kingsize bed there is a large office or private reception, walk in wardrobes, a private hair salon and a bathroom with steam shower and bath that showcases the shipyard's craftmanship in marble. Two double cabins and two twin cabins on the lower deck complete versatile accommodation for 12 guests across three decks, all linked by an elevator. There are 13 further berths in her crew quarters.
From the main deck aft steps to starboard take guests down to a vast beach club area with a huge inventory of watertoys and a large bathing platform offering easy access to the water.
BASH has twin 1,850hp Caterpillar diesel engines giving her a top speed of 16 knots and a transoceanic range of over 5,000nm at her economical speed of 12 knots. Quantum zero speed stabilisers ensure comfort at anchor on arrival.
