B S K – HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:
The luxury yacht designers and builders Benetti need little introduction as one of the leading superyacht brands in the world. Founded in 1873 at the historic shipyard in Tuscany the company have produced bespoke yachts for the rich and famous for the past 150 years. In the early 1960s Lorenzo Benetti took over the luxury yacht division and began designing in steel the Dolphin, Delfino and Timero classes in the 18 to 23-metre range.
BSK is one of the early Dolphin Class of which twenty-three were built by Benetti during the 1960s. This stylish and well-planned motor-yacht was favoured by Prince Rainer, Princess Grace and the Beatles.
In the current ownership BSK (named after the first initial of the owner’s children) has been completely refitted over a six-year period bring the vessel up to modern-day standards whilst retaining the class and style of the period. Original fitting were retained and re-chromed and all-new deck canopies fitted. The addition of a large bathing platform has enhanced the design and practicality of BSK.
