Remarks
STARFIRE is an exceptionally well-built yacht that has been put together by a professional team ably lead
by her experienced Owner. She is now in better than new condition having recently received several
important upgrades in materials and equipment in excess of her original build specification.

A true displacement motor yacht that was built expressly with long range world cruising in mind. She has
already completed several ocean passages to/from the Far East including a trans-Pacific.

Her exceptional interior decoration was designed by the highly acclaimed Francois Zuretti and offers an
abundance of accommodation and entertainment areas for the Owner and their guests. The style is
predominantly "Art Déco" with a touch of the exotic from the Orient.

Without doubt one of Benetti's flagship motor yachts and she clearly sets the standards and trends for
future vessels from this leading Italian shipyard.

An outstanding opportunity in today's market place that is ideally suited to both private and possibly
charter use. Recommended.

The name STARFIRE is reserved by the Owner.
