Benetti Spectre and MTU

Benetti Spectre is not a spy story, it’s a 69-meter full custom mega yacht with a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure on five decks. And, if Italian super yacht’s name calls to mind the British espionage saga, the true 007 is MTU 12V4000 M93L kilowatts @ 2,100 rpm.

Benetti Spectre means a jump in the luxury scenary that’s allowed just to the caliber of Vitelli’s family jewel.

After Quantum of Solace and Diamonds Are Forever, Spectre is the third yacht launched by Benetti for New York businessman John Staluppi.
