Entering her third season in the Mediterranean, motor yacht LYANAlooks as fresh and inviting as the day she launched.
The Benetti yacht charter vessel is the epitome of elegance, and someone has effectively blended contemporary style with classic touches. The 60 meter Benetti yacht LYANAand her crew are now seasoned veterans, ready to deliver a highly satisfying summer charter. Capable of cruising at 14 knots, Western Mediterranean destinations, such as the Amalfi Coast, Corsica, Sardinia, Monaco, St Tropez and the Côte d’Azur are within easy reach.Let’s take a closer look at M/Y LYANA – Her interior was designed by Paris-based Pierre-Yves Rochon and offers classic shapes, set in a color scheme of beige and crème for furnishing and upholstery, all framed by dark lacquered wood for cabinets and joinery. A collection of fine artwork by Botero, Dali, and others is spread about the interior.
Starting on the main aft deck, a large U-shaped sofa offers a comfortable welcome, effortlessly seating 12. A set of white upholstered wooden armchairs and two additional semicircular sofas give the aft deck ample seating. This is the perfect setting for entertainment.
From the aft deck, you enter the main salon through large sliding glass doors. Warm and welcoming, the saloon highlights the yacht’s sublime delivery of classic design couples with modern shapes. One charter guest described this area as, “Tasteful, with an overall calm and hospitable feel.”Forward of the main salon is the formal dining area. Again, classic elegance has been embellished with a contemporary color palette. What a perfect location for a sophisticated dinner party.
A central spiral staircase connects all interior decks. Adjacent to this central area is the owner’s office which serves as the entrypoint to the master suite. Lavishly spacious, this room has the look and feel of a fully-equipped spa. The massive bathroom features a rainforest shower area with hydro-therapy jets. The stateroom itself is bathed in natural light via a circular central skylight, and a semicircular array of windows that turn this room into a luxurious private observation lounge with panoramic views beyond the yacht’s bow.Motor yacht LYANA can accommodate up to twelve guests, with additional staterooms found on the upper and lower decks. Located on the lower deck, two doubles and two twins can be found, all adjacent to the central staircase. Each cabin has sumptuous ensuite bathrooms.
On the upper deck, a VIP suite doubles as both an extra stateroom as well as a massage and wellness area. A licensed masseuse is onboard and at the guests’ disposal.
The aft section of the upper deck features an open-air saloon where a bar, games table, and multiple seating arrangements can be found. The large space allows for both intimate dinner parties as well as elegant cocktail parties.
Last but not least is the sumptuously-sized sun deck. Primary features include the Jacuzzi area, with tub, big sun pads, and an extended lounging sofa. The central section offers shade from the sun under a hard top and an area to use the onboard gym equipment (including rowing, running and Pilates machines and a trainer bicycle). For guests preferring to get their exercise in the water, there’s a large beach club deck, located at the yacht’s stern.Simply put, this is an amazing yacht and her collection of amenities, combined with her sense of style, make her a perfect choice for any charter.
