By volume and tonnage, Ambrosia III is the largest yacht launched to date at the Benetti Shipyard. It is also the most technologically advanced in the company’s history. The 65-meter yacht features diesel-electric Azipod propulsion which brings to yachting a level of fuel-efficiency, safety and quiet, flexible operation previously seen only in commercial and military ships.
Ambrosia III also offers anchorless dynamic positioning, infra-red navigation and one of the most extensive entertainment and communications systems ever installed on a yacht. The yacht profile has been designed by highly regarded Italian Stefano Natucci, in cooperation with the shipyard’s design office. The yacht’s interior, by renowned French designer Francois Zuretti, incorporates a highly refined Art Deco-themed interior with extensive use of marquetry, hand-cut carpets, elegant staircases and hand-painted murals.
|The full-beam master cabin: From the central king sized double bed three full height oval portholes look out each side onto the ocean. The bathroom is divided from the bedroom with an opaque glass screen that can be made translucent at the touch of a button. A large Jacuzzi tub divides the bathroom into “His and Her” sides with a steam shower also in the middle.
The VIP cabin and bathroom on the upper deck The upholstered Baker furniture piece at the foot of the bed serves as a coffee table. Both cabin and bathroom are characterized by very large windows to take advantage of the plentiful natural light of the upper deck. The bathroom’s inner window is made of frosted glass for additional privacy. The countertops in the bathroom are of Azzuro d’Oriente marble with a white Egeo marble splashboard.
Double stateroom and twin guest cabin on the lower deck. Ambrosia’s accommodations include two double and two twin cabins with almost identical layouts. The double cabins also feature walk-in wardrobes, though the fabrics and fittings vary from room to room. The elegant Art Deco theme, however, is maintained throughout the accommodations. To further personalize each cabin, the stone finishes in the bathroom vary and include rose quartzite, China Green and Giano Siena marbles. Many of the Zimmer & Rhode, Jagtar and Verel de Belval upholstery fabrics are custom-designed.
