Benetti 85 Legend - 85 Legend


Benetti 85 Legend

is the ultimate mini mega yacht. What this model does not wrap up in less than 24meter is not worth having. The Legend 85 greatly benefitted from almost all of her stable-mates at Benetti being 30meters plus and so her systems are usually seen only on much larger yachts. Farfallina is a full displacement hull yacht, offering excellent economy and range with her larger than standard engines, affording no more hanging around at the fuel dock when on holiday. Stability and comfort is where this model exceeds and makes everyone aboard happy and relaxed. The brilliant layout gives you the best of all worlds, privacy, open spaces for entertaining, commanding views at all times and enough crew accommodation for five star service.

FARFALLINA has benefited from being built only once the owner, surveyor and broker had spent considerable time aboard a sister-ship. All parties are as involved today as they were in 2008 when she was completed. The result has been clear to see. Farfallina has run like clockwork and fulfilled the owner and his guests every expectation. 

Her condition must be seen to be believed and the specification and many many custom extras need to be inspected to appreciate the thought and dedication that went into building FARFALLINA.

The twin guest cabins are fitted with a queen size and single bed in each, offering total flexibility to guests.

Crew Cabin:

Accessed via the bathing platform or the aft deck (ladder) this was uniquely designed initially to allow a longer Passerelle to be fitted. It lead to one cabin having a double bed and the second having twin heads. Both cabins have windows and have full climate control and en-suit heads and shower. Also located in the crew area is the washing machine and tumble dryer.

Upper Deck:

Easily the most popular area on the boat. Comfortable seating, commanding views, fully equipped bar, full size dinging table. There is not much reason to leave this area, with the TV and entertainment system. Full shade over the deck thanks to the hard top (opening central section) or full sun can be found on the enormous and private sun pad forward of the bar. This area has a lot of unique features on this boat. The bar design fully fitted out with galley storage. Marble work tops complement the classic wooden bar top. Removable bar stools add to the charm. The forward “roof” of the bar has a unique large, rectangular, panoramic window (sister-ships have two small port holes). This window allows natural light back into the bar and also looks in keeping.

The private sun pad has two unique seats either side with storage below. It also has a back rest which flips forwards when not in use or turns the leading edge of the sunpad into a comfortable bench. There is a central mounting point for the custom made stainless parasol which allows a mixture of sun and shade on the sun pad.

The aft end of this deck opens up once the tender is removed, there is space for the power plate exercise machine and space for two traditional Sun loungers.

All of this area has higher than standard stainless guard rails and is fitted with custom glass to make it private and safer.
