FrontRunners: Simply the Best

The Editors

With Benetti’s Exclusive Sea Technology (www.benetti?yachts.it), or BEST, the Italian boatbuilder brings the smart-home concept to the high seas. Functioning as a kind of central nervous system for a yacht, the new technology features a device for controlling dozens of onboard functions, from lowering the blinds in the salon to monitoring the infrared alert system. BEST was developed over a three-year period, and Benetti is currently working on upgrades that will enable the company to monitor a yacht’s engines and other functions from thousands of miles away.
