BENETTI LAUNCHES GALAXY: The first Benetti motoryacht built at the company's new Livorno, Italy, facility was launched earlier this summer. Christened Galaxy, the 184-foot steel and aluminum yacht was delivered to an Australian owner who will use her for family cruising as well as selective charter. Exterior styling and interior layout are by Stefano Natucci. The interior styling was completed by the owner's designer in exotic woods, including eucalyptus, European plane tree, maple burl and sycamore. Burma teak parquet is used for decking in several areas, and the pilothouse is completed in oak.
