IL SOLE (ex. Candyscape) is a custom motor yacht built in 1994 by Benetti. Undergoing a comprehensive refit in 2012, followed by a 2.7 million Euro refit in 2019 Il Sole is the true definition of classic style and refined luxury. During the last refit, zero speed and underway stabilisers were installed.
IL SOLE offers voluminous exteriors over 3 decks, boasting numerous sunbathing and dining areas as well as a Jacuzzi and a large selection of water toys. The bright and spacious main salon is perfect for socialising and entertaining whilst a large dining table offers the ideal formal dinner setting for 12 guests that can also be converted into a roulette table for a spectacular evening of fun!
Up to 12 guests are accommodated in 6 well-appointed cabins comprising a master on the main deck with walk-in wardrobe, office area and en-suite bathroom equipped with Jacuzzi bath and steam bath. A further 2 VIP cabins and 3 twin cabins are located on the lower deck.
Il Sole is a stunning 147’ Benetti designed for luxurious transoceanic cruising. Exterior styling by Stefano Natucci features classic lines, oversize windows, and generous outdoor spaces. Modern interiors by Candy and Candy infuse traditional elements with contemporary panache. Exquisite craftsmanship is evident throughout the build, which was originally constructed for the private use of one of Benetti’s owners.
Intelligent architecture provides excellent circulation, generous spaces and greater flexibility. State-of-the-art engineering, entertainment systems and modern amenities blend seamlessly in an ambiance of Old World grandeur. Hints at the Golden Era of yachting are embodied in the curvilinear joinery of exotic woods, the liberal use of elegant marbles, sensual silk wall coverings and carpeting, Lalique glass fixtures and decorative fine art.
Il Sole has deluxe accommodation for 12 guests. The master suite is positioned forward on the main deck, and five guest staterooms occupy the lower level. Three options for al fresco dining are tantalizing alternatives to the elegant, formal dining room amidships. The sundeck is the ultimate spot to enjoy fresh sea air and panoramic views, whether sun worshipping, star gazing, or lounging in the shade.
