James Packer is selling off his 108-metre Benetti superyacht IJE, after taking ownership of the vessel in 2019.

The vessel is the longest ever built by the Italian shipyard and is named after Packer’s three children – Indigo, Jackson and Emmanuelle.

As the flagship of Benetti’s fleet, the vessel is packed with unique features including a main saloon with full-height sliding glass walls that open the space on three sides, a vast lower deck gym with sea terrace and foredeck stowage for two 12m tenders – the gym and tenders are among the largest on a yacht of this class.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg as IJE boasts accommodation for 22 guests in 11 suites, including a private owner’s deck with forward access to walkaround side decks.

Elsewhere, the main deck aft sees a generous pool and open-air dining with lounge and bar – the sun lounge on the bridge deck aft features a firepit as its focus. The outdoor space of the superyacht amounts to approximately 1000sqm.

Inside, the impressive build features a cinema, dedicated nightclub and beauty salon, with the levels accessible by internal lift among its many features.

IJE has twin MTU 3800 hp diesels under the ‘hood’ to deliver a top speed of 18.5 knots. Throttle back to 14 and with its 340,000-litre tanks, the yacht has a range of 6500 nautical miles.

The listing, through superyacht brokers Burgess, prices the yacht at 175 million euros, or approx. $282 million.

Previously, Mr Packer was the proud owner of the massive 87-metre converted German ice-breaker Arctic P, which he gave to his sister Gretel in 2017.

Alongside the 51-metre Amels Seahorse, which he sold in 2015, a 50-metre go-fast Mangusta he named Z Ellerston and the go-even-faster 45-metre Leopard called Z Sydney.
