The megayacht FB269, a 69 meter Custom megayacht with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure, has been successfully transferred to Benetti’s Livorno shipyard. She was commissioned by John Staluppi, an american business man. The man commissioned over 13 yachts, most of them named after a James Bond movie or character, such as Diamonds are Forever or Octopussy. We want a lot of luxury, but we want it to be special,” says Sataluppi. “We want the boat to be exciting. At the same time I wanted the boat to have a little speed, so we decided to make it 21-22 knots. I got in touch with Frank Mulder and Bas, and asked them if they would like to join me on the project… They came over, we spent a lot of time [discussing the new project].” In addition to the impressive top speed, Spectre will also be able to cruise 6,500 nm at a speed of 12 knots before having to stop for fuel.
