Italian shipyard Benetti has announced that on the 29th of April at the Livorno shipyard, the full-custom 48m/157ft luxury yacht ‘HAWA’ was launched.

British design studio RWD created her exterior and interior styling, and her Owner chose the colour of ‘desert sand’ for the steel hull, creating an immediate contrast to the surrounding deep blue sea. A bespoke layout within is another personal touch: The main deck forward has a pantry instead of a galley, creating room for a VIP stateroom complete with shower and sauna. This still leaves room for a full-beam Master suite where the windows drop down, and a private study and lounge create a haven for work and rest away from other distractions.

The main deck salon has five different openings to let in the light and fresh air as well as providing a greater connection to the sea. Natural materials including matte painted eucalyptus and accents in dark walnut, marble and leather create a refined environment for relaxing and entertaining.

Three double guest cabins are placed on the lower deck, where the galley is situated. A dumbwaiter provides efficient service across the decks, including the sundeck. The beach club in the stern is sure to be a favourite place for guests to relax beside the water, and two fold-down platforms increase the sunbathing space. An L-shaped sofa, bathroom, shower and sauna plus storage for fishing and diving gear ensure that the group has everything they need to make the most of every anchorage.

The upper deck hosts the sky lounge and gym, and the aft deck area is divided up for dining, lounging and sunbathing. Above, the sundeck is ready for a variety of weather conditions, ensuring usage in the shoulder seasons as well as the height of summer. A windproof structure with sliding doors creates a cosy lounge, while the stern is fitted with a dining table that seats 12 guests, and the bow has a wet bar, a table for four and a forward-facing sofa to take in the destination.

For power, superyacht HAWA comes with two MTU engines each producing 1,268 kW for a top speed of 15.5 knots and a transatlantic range of 4,000 nautical miles cruising at 10 knots.
