Delivered last August to longtime Benetti yacht owners, the 213-foot Seanna (+39.0584.3821, www.benettiyachts.it; available for charter through Burgess, 212.223.0410, www.burgessyachts.com) is a floating showcase of custom fittings and furnishings. Italian walnut paneling with nickel inlays, wenge cabinetry, Botticino and alacatta marble flooring, and a marble stairway with nickel balusters and carved handrails are among the highlights of the interior, which also boasts a theater with a 100-inch projector screen, a large water-level gym with a side-opening swim platform, a library with a marble fireplace, and a pair of massage rooms. The yacht accommodates as many as 14 guests in two twin cabins, three double cabins, a large upper-deck stateroom, and a full-beam owner’s suite with his and her bathrooms and dressing rooms, a sitting room, and a study. Seanna’s large sundeck converts to a helicopter pad, and the yacht is equipped with a custom 28-foot aluminum tender and a flotilla of water toys.
