In the international luxury auto industry, one country is synonymous with trendsetting fashion and style: Italy. Ferrari…Maserati…Lamborghini… The mere mention of these names evokes images of automobiles designed with sleek exteriors and sophisticated interiors.
The same Italian tradition of excellence and sophistication rings true in the world of yachting: Benetti Yachts.
The Benetti Shipyard is one of the oldest yacht building yards in the world. Founded by Lorenzo Benetti in 1873 the was directed after his death by his sons Gino and Emilio. They renamed the yard Fratelli Benetti and soon gained recognition outside the waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
In the early 1980’s Azimut SpA took over the yard’s management under the name, Azimut Benetti Group. For the past six years, Benetti Yachts has been the largest shipyard in the world in terms of production.

Anyone who follows our daily nautical blogs knows we love two things – the world’s largest yachts…and gadgets (especially gadgets that can be utilized and enjoyed during a luxury yacht charter).
With the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show underway in Las Vegas, it’s time to pick our favorite new gadgets for 2012. Here are our top three new gadgets of CES 2012:
Megayachts like Feadship yacht charter vessel LADY BRITT and the themed James Bond boat Benetti motor yacht DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER feature iPod docking stations integrated into a ship-wide audio system. For yachts without a centralized audio system, the Griffin Twenty should prove to be a popular addition to onboard entertainment options.
The Griffin Twenty streaming audio device turns any Apple AirPort Express into a full stereo system.
The device has a simple, elegant design, just a plug for the AirPort Express and a large dial for volume. As its name implies, the Twenty has an internal 20-watt amp and outputs for left and right stereo speakers, plus a kickin’ subwoofer. The concept is simple – the dial controls the volume, while the rest of the interface is taken care of through your iPhone, iPad or computer.
ROKU STREAMING STICK
Many Caribbean yacht charter vessels offer satellite TV as well as WiFi while dockside. What’s often missing is the charter guests favorite online content.
Using the new HDMI MHL standard, the Roku Streaming Stick plugs into a port on newer TVs. The stick instantly gives any compatible set access to all of Roku’s online content, from providers such as MLB, Netflix, and Pandora. The stick requires no dedicated power, features built-in WiFi, and is set to launch in 2012 for under $100.
GO PRO Wi-Fi BACPAC
Whether enjoying a bareboat charter or a vacation on a fully-crewed yacht, waterproof cameras are a must. YouTube is saturated with amateur vids of adrenaline junkies riding waverunners, bananas, and zipping along with underwater scooters.
The Go Pro name has become synonymous with adventure/sports photography, and the Wi-Fi BacPac and remote combo kit will users even more control over their favorite cameras. Just snap the BacPac onto an HD Hero2 and you can control the camera from a durable, waterproof wrist-ready remote. Using the Go Pro app, you can also control the camera from a smartphone, tablet, or computer via a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi connection.
The BacPac also lets you stream a live view from the camera to your mobile devices, making sure you’re getting just the right shot.
