Newly built Benetti motor yachtCHECKMATE, fresh from her inaugural stint in the summer 2013 Mediterranean yacht charter market, has arrived in Fort Lauderdale, in preparation for the upcoming winter season.
Launched earlier this year in Italy, she is the 15th vessel built in the fabled shipyard’s Vision series of semi-custom yachts. The Benetti Vision 145 yacht CHECKMATE now joins the many Benetti yacht charter vessels currently in service, such as motor yacht MINE GAMES, and James Bond yacht, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER .
Five guest staterooms are available onboard, including a master cabin on the main deck, featuring a King bed, and ensuite baths featuring his and hers bathrooms. Below deck are four spacious cabins with accommodations for 8 additional passengers, plus two Pullman berths, suitable for small children.
The 45 meter yacht made her public American debut at the 2013 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, with newly-appointed Captain Phillip Nash onboard for the winter season. At the conclusion of the show, the Italian superyacht repositioned to the Bahamas.
Her owner then plans to send her north, next summer, to participate in the New England Martha’s Vineyard yacht charter market.
Weekly rates begin at $200,000 per week, plus all expenses.
