The hull of mega yacht Spectre is currently under construction at the Benetti shipyard, Italy.

She's a high-speed cruising yacht. In relation to a full displacement yacht, she feels the same and the materials are the same, but she'll have a top speed of 21.5 knots and a cruising speed of 20." In this nascent era of practicality before performance, this represents an intriguing proposition. In addition to the impressive speed specs, we predict very low noise and vibration levels. "She has all the goodies of a steel displacement yacht with the exception of the speed limit." This technologically advanced vessel will be on the water within two years.
