The Benny 53 'Go', designed by Benny Yachts in conjunction with Greg Elliott of New Zealand,with interiors by Burley Katon Halliday in Sydney.

The luxury cruising yacht is easily handled by a husband and wife. The casing for the lift keel is the centre piece of the modern minimalist interior, featuring a bath under a removable berth base and a pilothouse cabin / lounge with windows.

The Benny 53 is designed for fast, comfortable global voyaging that can easily be managed by two people. The boat is built utilising modern weight saving materials and construction methods, premium quality fittings and equipment and attention to detail in a high quality finish.

The interior that is spacious, airy with lots of natural light and is elegant and functional.

John and Annie Cameron (owner of Benny Yachts) , wanted to live at the same standard as we do on land but with some adventure.

A lot of people start with a goal to remain simple in their systems design and find out that they would like to add some comforts, only to discover that it is impractical or too expensive to upgrade. Recent surveys of cruising couples confirm that having comforts on the boat improves the enjoyment of the cruising experience.

On a Benny, you can move from the living area to the cockpit without having to navigate dangerous stairs.

The pilothouse cabin with its panoramic views for the lounge, dining, galley and nav station is a safe, warm, comfortable area to sail the boat in adverse conditions or to get away from the sun.

This is by far the most significant design element of a Benny and is perfectly suited to the growing trend towards comfort in cruising yacht design. Women especially are not prepared to do without the comforts of life. And why should they, when they are available. No more standing night watch from the cockpit in wet, cold, stormy weather.

Each new owner will work with Benny interior designers, Burley Katon Halliday, to have internal spaces, colours and finishes customised.

The first Benny "GO" has berths in the two mid-cabins, Eurobeech timber panelling and floors, stainless steel benchtops and galley, and ocre (tangerine) leather for the stools and lounge. It is painted metallic silver inside and out with black antifoul and black gennaker.

The second Benny "ZOOM" has an office in the port side mid-cabin and berth in the other. It has American Walnut timber panelling and floors, stainless steel benchtops and galley, and lime green leather for the stools and lounge. It is painted metallic silver on the outside and platinum on the inside.
