Benetti has delivered its carbon, polished steel and bleached oak embellished superyacht to her German owner.

M/Y Metis’ suave exterior is courtesy of Giorgio M. Cassetta with her modern interior created by the UK studio Bannenberg & Rowell, who worked in partnership with the Birgit Otte Interior Atelier. Dickie Bannenberg, who is thrilled with this project, commented: “Metis’ unique layout has freed us from what I call ‘the tyranny of alignment’, allowing us to unlock new corners and views of asymmetric designs.

This approach in particular is reflected in the beach club, where the rooms are rotated by about 30° compared to traditional layouts and offer a new view over the sea through the transom and the side doors. The novelty of this particular rotation also characterises the main salon and the upper deck salon, challenging conventional expectations and perceptions.”
