BOOT Düsseldorf in Germany has come to a close and with it an exciting new announcement from Beneteau. Set for release in 2021 is the all new ‘Project E’, 2 new models of Passagemaker. This is an exciting new range from Beneteau featuring exceptional seaworthiness, exquisite comfort and luxury, and an incredible amount of space; ideal for the perfect ocean cruise.
The two yachts come in an astonishing 18.95m (62’) and 22.28m long (73’) and are the result of Beneteau’s collaboration with Massimo Gino (Nauta Design) and Amedeo Migali (MICAD). The range has sought to capitalize on the highly successful Swift Trawler range of practical, spacious boats, with a considerable cruising range, whilst putting Bénéteau’s experience designing luxury boats to good use.
Project E-1 and 2 both feature a displacement hull, for increased cruising range and efficiency. A satin wax finished wood, leather and elegant textiles make for a stylish interior and exterior. Strikingly spacious inside, with volumes similar to much bigger yachts, these large passagemakers also feature enough space to comfortably house a crew.
The first model of the range is 18.95m and has a hull beam of over 5m. Designed for 6 to 8 people on board (+ crew), the boat has an impressive flybridge – one of the biggest on the market. The interior spaces are spacious and well-appointed. The galley can be completely enclosed. The VIP guest cabin in the bow, has a considerable amount of headroom, so that you feel like you are in a hotel suite.
Comfortable and seaworthy, with a cruising range of 900 nautical miles and a central raised helm station, she is ideal for slow cruises, who want to take it all in at a comfortable pace.
The second model is 22.28M designed for 8 people and 4 crew. With space inside similar to an 85-foot boat, a little patience will be needed to see every detail of the second model.
Careful attention has been paid to the flow of movement on board, to make crew circulation easier. A raised pilothouse is located midships, cleverly positioned between the main deck and the flybridge and accessed by a dedicated stairway.
Built for exceptional cruising, long-distance blue water expeditions, and unforgettable experiences in voluminous spaces, these code-name ‘Project E’ officially launched in 2021. Contact us at 36 Degrees for exclusive information and more.
