  1. 45-meter Motor Yacht "Domani" By Benetti
    The owners were certainly looking forward to tomorrow when they christened their latest yacht "Domani". Yep, that’s what the name means – tomorrow-. It isn’t the first Benetti yacht to bear the name and it is fitting that the name continues on a brand new yacht which is part of yard’s custom built line. The steel hulled yacht is very reminiscent of smaller yachts in the yard’s fiberglass/composite line but being the owner’s fifth and perhaps largest yacht he might have wanted a more solid approach.

  2. This yacht has three internal guest decks and a beautifully laid-out sundeck. The sundeck is partially shaded thanks to the hard top and is divided into a number of zones. The forward end is where the sunpads and Jacuzzi is at. Just aft of that is a par on the port side and casual seating on the starboard. The mid deck area (under the hard top) can be semi closed off depending on the weather as it has sliding curved glass panels. In this area seats ten guests for al fresco styled lunch or dinner around a large circular table. The aft most part of the deck has a day bed and loose outdoor furniture.
  3. The main deck cockpit area is a bit different to most yachts of this size offering lounge type seating instead of the traditional upright and formal seating. Two folding tables are on hand to still make the area practical for eating or just casual relaxation. It will be a nice area to chill at when at anchor and a nice alternative to the sundeck when coming out of the main saloon.
  4. The opposite end of the main deck will take you towards the bow –forward of the wheelhouse position-. This area has relaxation written all over it with oversized settee and daybed/sunpadded arrangements. It is expected to be a very social area and so can be fitted with tent poles to stretch the sun-awning from and lessen the impact of the overhead sun on the area. A solitary coffee table rounds off the space nicely and there is still plenty of space on the side to allow crew to work around the space without interfering with guests utilizing the space.
  5. The interior of Domani is very comfortable and luxurious. Designed pairing dark wood on white fabric and finishes with textured walls and smooth ceilings the interior gives a sophisticated feel. Carlo Galeazzi was responsible for designing the interior while the exterior was an in-house job by Benetti themselves however, the owner was very active in the majority of the process. The main saloon pictured below comprises of an L-shaped settee area that is arranged to face a very large media screen –perfect for movies or just catching up on the news-. The aft area is home to the formal dining region with a large round table just like on the mid sundeck.
  6. Accommodation onboard is for twelve guests in six cabins. The owner has a full beam suite on the forward main deck that has a surprise pop-out balcony. Five guest cabins are located down on the lower deck along with four cabins for seven crew members. The décor in the guest cabins follow a similar trend to the main public spaces. The owner’s cabin has large ensuite bathroom as well as a study area taking advantage of the vessel’s near 30-foot beam.
  7. The guest cabins have their own bathrooms as well and are arranged in a mixture between double and twin berths. These rooms are very spacious for guest cabins on a 44.9-meter yacht and all follow the same tonal and pattern scheme that Carlo Galeazzi utilized in the main saloon and upper deck lounge. The use of lighting, reflective nature of mirrors and the dark hardwood on light and creamy walls and ceilings is utterly sumptuous.
  8. Domani is a near 45-meter full displacement luxury yacht with 438GT. An overall beam of 9.10-meters and a draft of under 8-feet are decent. Power comes via twin CAT C32 ACERT engines and if you have the time this yacht can efficiently sail at around 10.5-knots continuously and deliver a 4,000 nautical range from a full tank of fuel. For the owner Tomorrow is always a great thing because in his yachting experience he looked forward to it five times, Domani!
