With the French Riviera breathing a short breath of relief following the busiest week of its calendar, we are looking towards the summer season which is just a short time away. ST DAVID is our super yacht of the week, and we were lucky enough to sample some of the fantastic amenities and service available onboard last night in Cannes. The 60m Benetti was built in 2008 as XANADU, having been re-fitted and renamed in 2010 she is in pristine condition for charter.
In typical Benetti style, ST DAVID benefits from huge amounts of outdoor space, with the Andrew Winch design executed beautifully for social gatherings and relaxation with friends and family. The sundeck provides a hugely flexible space, offering its guests large jacuzzi, oversized sun pads, bar and dining area. The other decks focus on bringing the outside in, with huge glass doors that disappear fully to fuse the two areas.
Heading inside on the main deck you are greeted by beautiful Baroque inspired design, offering an elegant bar, lounge and dining area. Forward of this there is the huge split-level master suite with owner’s lounge and feature bathroom with extraordinary marble bath. The raised bedroom area means you are offered panoramic views from the comfort of your bed. Five further cabins on the lower deck mean the yacht can accommodate 12, and she offers a flexible arrangement through convertible twin beds in all the lower deck cabins.
ST DAVID’s sleek modern Benetti styling means she fits in perfectly with all the finest charter yachts on the market today, fusing beautiful curved lines with huge exterior volumes. She has 2 x 1,850HP engines, resulting in a cruising speed of 15 knots.
Benetti yachts are ideal for the French Riviera, and ST DAVID is one of the highest specification options on the market. She is ideal for your dream itinerary heading from the heart of bustling Monte Carlo to the idyllic Pampelonne Beach in St Tropez and every quiet cove in between. The only way to see this breathtaking part of the world is from the water, so get in touch today and we’ll create your dream yachting vacation.
