Benetti built the BY006 Crystal 40 Equus for a European owner.

The interior design of the 138-foot yacht was made to reflect the owner’s two favorite things: Africa and polo.

The interior design, based on the original work of François Zuretti, was recreated by Benetti’s in-house team in collaboration with the owner's designer, Polly Sturgess. Throughout the yacht, the interior includes details such as decorative panels meant to imitate zebra skins along with door and cupboard handles made with dark woven leather.
