Helios, concept design for the Benetti Design Innovation Project

This Concept Design was presented at the 2012 Monaco Yacht Show exclusively for the Benetti Design Innovation Project.
HELIOS is an 88 meter (288 feet) Superyacht with clean, modern and sleek exterior lines. The aim of the project was to design a yacht that despite of her considerable size still looks as a family yacht. We have avoided massive superstructures giving her six decks and ample exterior spaces with relaxing areas.
One of the innovative features is the unusual location of the stairs going from the swimming platform to the main deck. They have been shifted forward leaving an unobstructed balcony area right on the aft main deck. The low and wide hull shape in the stern changes into an aggressive profile towards the bow giving her a muscle look.
HELIOS is an efficient full displacement motoryacht designed to accommodate 12+2 guests on board and 29 crew. Powered by twin 3516B Caterpillar engines of 2525 kW and controllable pitch propellers she can achieve 18+ knots with a trans-pacific range of 6000 nautical miles.
