There is an ornate elevator which slides smoothly through the glass atrium lift shaft, from the lower guest cabins to the gymnasium on the sun deck.
The gymnasium can be closed for air conditioned workouts or the large sliding glass doors can be fully opened to provide an open air, yet private exercise room. The after part of the gymnasium houses a separate sauna made from the finest Scandinavian spruce pine and an adjacent shower serves both sauna and gym.
The sundeck has a large Jacuzzi which can be utilised as a plunge pool after using the sauna or can be easily heated as a hot tub or whirlpool.
There is a double barbecue grill discretely installed on the sun deck for guests’ pleasure and there is a large dining table for guests to enjoy al fresco dining. This open air dining area is also well protected by an elegant awning; which serves to provide shade from the midday sun or protection from a quick rain shower.
There is a good size “touch and go” heli-pad on the after part of the sun deck which doubles as a wonderful sun bathing area. The bronze coloured side screens provide privacy, as well as shelter when windy conditions prevail.
The upper deck aft offers a comfortable seating/sun bathing area as well as a grand (extendable) dining table; providing guests with another dining area option.
The main deck offers yet another very comfortable seating area (also well shielded by bronze coloured screens) and a stairwell down to the swim platform for access to the water or tender boarding.
The yacht’s tenders fit neatly into a large tender garage which also accommodates an array of the latest water sports and dive equipment.
The two jet skis are housed on the foredeck with the yacht’s rescue tender, the latter also serves as a crew workboat for carrying out the necessary maintenance and shore runs for provisioning, etc.
There is a very well equipped galley onboard providing a chef with all possible requirements for creating the highest standards of cuisine. There is a large walk in fridge and freezer room on the under lower deck and a service lift from the galley to this deck level allows for the easy movement of stores and supplies.
The crew and captain are accommodated in eight cabins and a crew’s mess area provides them space to dine or relax in comfort.

Stefano Natucci’s grand design includes a spectacular sun deck of approx. 200 square metres. Screens surround the aft section to provide privacy. A large, oval dining table seats twelve guests and the glass-enclosed air-conditioned gym with sauna has 360’ views. Forward is a split-level, semi-enclosed pool area with an oval, oversized Jacuzzi. Additional outdoor dining is set up on both upper and main decks and suits any number of guests.
Interior design is by the Italian Studio Massari using walnut, mahogany, rosewood, teak and zebrawood. The mahogany panelling with book laid grain patterns, is amongst the finest ever produced by Benetti.
The extended aft section of this 59 metre series is an extraordinary interior/exterior space. Classically styled with art deco features, the main deck has a huge entertaining and dining saloon.
IMAN sleeps fourteen guests in a main deck master suite, upper deck VIP and four double staterooms on the lower deck, two of which have pull down Pullman bunks.
The master suite is more like a private apartment. The split-level suite includes a full beam bedroom, with two separate bathrooms. Steps lead up to a semi-circular observation television lounge and study with 180’ views.
The VIP cabin has an exotic blend of woods and fabrics. Throughout the staterooms, gloss panelling, highlighted with Benetti’s signature joinery, creates a calm, elegant and sophisticated ambiance.
Adjacent to the VIP cabin on the upper deck there is a staff cabin which can be utilised to accommodate security or child care personnel.
