Northrop & Johnson says the owner of the 145-foot Benetti Checkmate has dropped the yacht’s asking price by $1,410,000. The new asking price is $14,990,000.

Checkmate launched in 2013 and most recently was refitted in 2018. She was Benetti’s 100th fiberglass hull, and the first 145-foot Benetti Vision with panoramic hull port lights and a sundeck day head.

Inside, Checkmate has a sky lounge larger than those aboard other Benetti 145s. It has a 270-degree dining space that can be enclosed or open to the fresh air.


Accommodations are for 10 to 12 guests in five staterooms. The master has a private foredeck and a study.

Is Checkmate‘s hull black? Indeed it is. The paintwork stands out in just about every harbor.
