Benetti Yachts in Italy says its 220-foot Calex is scheduled to make its world debut at the Palm Beach International Boat Show in Florida from March 23-26.

Calex was delivered to its owner in spring 2022. This will be the first time the custom yacht is on display for the public.

The yacht has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure. Exteriors are by Cassetta Yacht Designers. Benetti’s Style Department handled the interiors.

Features aboard Calex include a 1,700-square-foot-plus upper deck for the owner’s use with a private outdoor lounge hidden from the decks above. The sundeck has gym equipment and a hot tub.

Eco-friendly technology: Calex is the first fully custom Benetti to have an engine room that complies with Tier III regulations. It’s built with a “scrubbing system” for the exhaust gasses.
