Custom super yachts from Italian shipyard Azimut-Benetti are renowned for their innovative yachts. The latest, the Vica, is no exception. Baroque Yachts has all the details
Benetti designers have used new technologies in the latest custom super yacht to be designed by Italian manufacturer, the Vica, namely fiberglass on the yacht’s hull and aluminum on the super structure. The Vica is the first Benetti yacht to use this technology – but that’s not all that sets this magnificent 64-foot super yacht apart.
The Vica, which can accommodate up to 12 guests and 12 crew members, also features open-air styling as well as three balconies, all of which are open to the sea. Each of the balconies is located on a separate deck; the main deck is a sun deck, and there’s another in the open deck astern, and a third on the upper deck.
The main sun deck features one of the two Jacuzzis that are found on the yacht. It includes a large area for sunbathing, a table where guests can enjoy lunch and a fully serviced bar. The design includes the possibility of transforming the sundeck If necessary, into a helipad for a small helicopter to land and take guests on sightseeing trips in the vicinity. However, the Vica does not include this option.
The design of both the exterior and interior of this luxury super yacht was created by Benetti. In addition, the design of the interior was the brainchild of architect Mariarosa Remedi in collaboration with the yacht owners’ personal interior designer.
The yacht has three separate hatches. The first hatch is located in the stern of the yacht, while the second one opens to the bathing platform and the third opens onto the lobby on the lower deck. Vica boasts four decks in all; each of which is connected to a central stairway that offers access to the yacht’s living areas. In addition, the yacht has a fifth lower under deck where the engines, laundry and other facilities are located.
The super yacht offers four sumptuous guest cabins, two with queen-size beds and two offering twin beds. All are located on the lower deck, while the owner’s suite is situated on the main deck and comprises a stunning study, spacious cabin, luxurious bathroom with shower and bath, walk-in closet and private terrace with its own gangway that leads to the sea.
Entertainment of every kind has been catered for on this luxury super yacht. In the yacht’s main salon, there’s a grand piano, karaoke equipment and an American-style corner bar. The area has been decorated with both cherry and rose woods, and includes LED lighting. Yacht aficionados will be interested to know that the yacht has two CAT C32 engines that are capable of propelling Vica to a cruising speed of 12 knots.
