Keen as ever to keep the buyer close to the corporate family purse, Benetti the Italian yacht builder has launched Dedicato, a new a new 5-year yacht operation and full care programme.

It is designed to offer their Owners an all-in-one solution to running a yacht. With a fixed yearly rate, the services provided include technical assistance, maintenance, administration and crewing.

A specialised team of Benetti’s most skilled resources, working in synergy with various experts, delivers a seamless package of operating services coupled with the technical support and knowledge that only the Builder can provide, allowing Owners to optimize the value of their asset and dedicate 100% of their time to enjoying the pleasure of cruise and the yachting lifestyle.

Specifically the programme includes:

  • Technical maintenance (scheduled maintenance and occasional failures)
  • Extension of contractual warranty to 5 years
  • Yacht Insurance
  • Crewing
  • All crew-related services and costs: salaries, administration, insurance.

Perhaps more interestingly the yacht’s warranty is extended for the duration of the service.

At the end of the period the Yacht is recommissioned to maximise upon its residual value and protect the initial investment

Alessandro Gallifuoco, Quality and After Sales Manager comments: “Dedicato is a true innovation in the yachting industry, ensuring Owners have the shipyard at their side 24/7 during the yacht operation, for a 5-year period and for a pre-agreed fee. It will be offered to Benetti Owners during the construction period. With a much broader scope.”

Keen not to tread on the toes of the likes of group owned Fraser Yachts, he adds, “Dedicato does not replace the existing yacht management services already available on the market”.
