Steel beauty

The 47-metre, custom-built superyacht with steel hull and aluminium superstructure, known as MY Bacchanal launched from Benetti’s Viareggio shipyard in early August.

The Mexican owner previously owned a Benetti Classic and chose the Italian shipyard for a yacht that is the epitome of simple, elegant taste.

The exterior styling is by Benetti, while the interior décor is the joint work of architect Mauricio Gómez de Tuddo and the Benetti Interior Style Department.

Bacchanal has a draught of 2.45 metres and a gross tonnage of just under 500 tonnes.

With her “international feel” influenced significantly by architect Mauricio Gómez de Tuddo Bacchanal’s interior decor is uniquely Italian, featuring brands such as Minotti and Paola Lenti, as well as by Giorgetti, Rimadesio, Poltrona Frau and Exteta.

The pool on the Sun Deck is clad in mosaic tiles by Sicis. The layout, designed to accommodate 12 guests and seven crew, is spread across four decks with plenty of full-width frameless sliding glass doors creating airy indoor-outdoor verandah spaces.

This light and airy ambience is complemented by teak floors with black caulking in both indoor and outdoor areas.


Accommodation consists of two VIP and two guest cabins on the Lower Deck along with crew quarters. The captain’s accommodation and a third VIP cabin are on the Upper Deck.

The full-beam owner’s suite accessed via a private study is in the bow section of the Main Deck.

Bacchanal is equipped with a 3D sonar system to increase onboard safety and providing information about any obstacles up to and over 500-metres distance from the vessel.

This new Benetti is powered by two MTU 12V engines and cruises at a speed of 14 knots, with a range of 4,000 miles at 10 knots, allowing it to make transatlantic crossings.
