New Benetti Veloce 140 Yacht DREW Available For Bahamas Yacht Charter

Posted on


Every once in a while, we find a hidden “gem” at a boat show that we can’t wait to share with our clients.  Motor yacht DREW is that type of yacht.

Benetti Veloce 140 DREW side profile


Launched in 2016, she is just the second hull in the new Benetti Veloce 140 series.  She made her charter debut at the 29th edition of  Yachts Miami Beach, the show that highlights private luxury yacht charter megayachts, and runs concurrently with the Miami Boat Show, now named Miami Yacht Show.  Yacht manager, Stacy Moss of Northrop and Johnson invited our company President, Jana Sheeder, onboard for a private viewing and an opportunity to meet the crew. After our inspection, Stacy was kind enough to put together an overview for our readers:



Benetti’s 140-foot (42.6m) luxury motor yacht DREW was launched in 2016. This sexy, chic yacht is ideal for charter thanks to her impressively voluminous and stylish interior, her exceptional on-deck spaces and her fully stocked toy box with a variety of exciting water sports, tenders and more.

Five staterooms cater to up to 10 guests on board (yacht) DREW. The main-deck 900-square-foot master is located forward and offers a walk-around king-size bed, an 80-inch flat screen, massive windows that provide astonishing views and an en-suite his-and-hers master math with a large European rain shower. The four additional guest staterooms are located on the lower deck. All offer queen-size beds and en-suite bathrooms, among other amenities.

The main salon is a perfect place to entertain. A variety of seating options, a game table and a flat screen TV all are on offer. Just aft, an alfresco dining table for 10 is the perfect spot for breakfast. This space leads to the beach club, which houses all the yacht’s water toys and is a great place to relax, catch some rays or pop in the water.

Motor yacht DREW’s skylounge is equipped with a full bar, day head, incredible views from massive windows and a large wrap-around couch situated in front of an 80-inch flat screen, and dive into a movie. The skylounge aft offers alfresco dining for 10 and incredible views. DREW’s sundeck is divided into two sections, forward and aft. The aft deck has four large chaise lounges, two large removable umbrellas; forward is a large bar with seating for five, a dining table for 10 and a flat screen TV. The Portuguese deck, an extension of the sundeck, is outfitted with U-shaped settee seating for 10, a table,  four large sun pads and a Jacuzzi.

The owner of the yacht has decided the Bahamas is the perfect destination for his new yacht, and we couldn’t agree more.  Our biggest challenge when arranging a Bahamas yacht charter for a client is the difficulty to find a yacht that can accommodate a large family or multiple couples in the shallow waters of the Bahamas. You see, much of the Bahamian islands reside in shallow, sandy waters.  Large megayachts that can accommodate 8 to 10 passengers usually have deep drafts  meaning they sit deeply in the water – too deep to navigate in shallow coves.   Even though Drew has accommodations for 10 guests, she is only 140ft in overall length, and her draft is just 8 feet.  Hence, this Benetti Veloce 140 is the perfect platform for a superyacht experience in the Bahamas!
