Italian megayachyt builder Benetti unveiled its 220-foot Benetti M/Y Seasense custom superyacht with luxurious contemporary features that recall the sea. Dutch designer Cor D. Rover styled the exteriors with what he calls his “Benetti beach club concept” — a design that evokes the feeling of relaxing on the beach. Surrounded by teak planking that lends the space an open airy feel, is a massive freshwater swimming pool edged by bold blue, umbrella-shaded lounge chairs. Located on the aft deck, it is considered Olympic size for a superyacht pool. It can be converted to a basketball court or a dance floor for evening fun, when carbon fiber panels are assembled on top of the water. A nearby dining area, set with a table that accommodates 12, is also perfect for poolside entertaining.

The contemporary interiors, a collaboration between Los Angeles-based design firm Area Architecture and Benetti’s talented team of architects, feature artwork and accessories in a sophisticated color palette of sea-blue hues. A variety of wood veneers with backlit features, exotic marbles, silk area rugs and intriguing flooring solutions such as teak planking can be seen throughout the vessel’s spacious living areas.

Just steps from the pool area is the main salon with a living/screening room designed with an L-shaped sofa and cozy armchairs. The space can be accessed from the lobby and the stunning gray, Antartide Marble spiral stairway. Softly lit beneath, the stairway features a blue wooden structure with steel inserts that echo its dynamic flowing design.

Luxury abounds onboard the Seasense with accommodations for 12 guests that include a VIP cabin with an ensuite bath, a main cabin with 10-foot-high ceilings, and four sophisticated guest cabins. On the sun deck guests enjoy a full gym with access to private social areas furnished with sofas, a Jacuzzi, sunbeds, a beverage bar and a wood-burning pizza oven ideal for dining at sea. 954/687-9436; www.benettiyachts.it
