Vessels include FB602, a 50-metre called B.Now; BP002, the second hull of Diamond 145, the 44-metre Class category flagship; BO104 and BO105, the fourth and fifth units of Oasis 40M, a sophisticated and elegant 40-metre yacht; and BF110, the tenth hull of the 38.1-metre Fast 125.
“Our latest products have won over the international yacht market,” said Franco Fusignani, Benetti’s CEO.
“These sales confirm the brand’s winning choice to add to the high-quality consolidated ‘Made in Italy’ an international and increasingly innovative vision.”
After the sale of the first B.Now to a repeat Benetti customer from the Middle East, the second contract has now been signed for B.Now 50M.
This custom yacht with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure is 50-metres long and stands out not only for the extremely short delivery times, but also for offering six cabins for 12 guests and six cabins for 10 crew members.
Created for people who love to enjoy life at sea in a casual and contemporary atmosphere, without compromising on comfort and privacy, B.Now 50M is a unique Benetti with flowing lines, elongated glazing on all decks and a vertical bow.
A product of the shipyard’s collaboration with UK design firm RWD, the customisable layout is developed through newly designed exterior contours, welcoming a brand-new nautical design.
The indoor/outdoor day area on the main deck flows seamlessly into the panoramic Pool Lounge and the Beach Club, both of which seem like an extension of the aft deck. The entire bow area on the Upper Deck is at the owner’s full disposal.
Alex Krykanyuk from Fraser acted as broker for the sale of the second unit of Diamond 145, the Class category flagship. 44-metres in length, with a fiberglass hull and a tonnage of 456 tonnes, Diamond 145 has a range of 3,800 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.
Designer Giorgio M. Cassetta’s work on the exteriors, combined with interiors by the Benetti Interior Style Department, accents the detailing and celebrates proportions that are both harmonious and balanced.
Diamond 145, thanks to her generous volumes, delivers style and comfort, offering five cabins for 10 guests and five cabins for seven crew members. Two striking facts are that this is the only 44-metre fiberglass boat available on the market and that it has an outdoor area that extends for over 350-square-metres.
Aft, sliding glass doors open out onto the beach area, which can be upgraded with a hammam or a sauna, or alternatively used to stow watertoys with easy access to the water. The design of the wide and uninterrupted stained-glass windows follows the length of the boat, lighting up the interiors.
Here owners can appreciate a yacht in which safety and elegance are suggestive of the detailing found on big ships. The design of the seamless glazed surfaces flows over the entire length of the yacht and floods the interiors with light.
The layout is designed to optimise space and the stern beach club is now independent, offering remarkable flexibility of use.
Confirming the market’s appreciation of Benetti’s new models are the sales of the fourth and fifth units of Oasis 40M, a yacht designed for sophisticated and energetic owners who want a 360-degree experience of the sea.
At 40.80-metres long and with a displacement of 310 tonnes, Oasis 40M has a range of up to 4,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.
Oasis 40M is a yacht with international scope not only because its owners hail from America, Asia and Europe, but also because its design is a joint effort combining ‘Made in Italy’ excellence by Benetti, an unexpected lifestyle concept by UK design firm RWD, and interior design with the imprint of New York firm Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture.
Oasis 40M, a yacht with four decks, five cabins for 10 guests and five cabins for nine crew members, is packed with solutions in which contact with the water plays a leading role, as the beach area and infinity pool within touching distance of the sea demonstrate.
The full-height windows, the use of natural light and the unusual layout of the big, welcoming spaces confirm and emphasise the desire for a symbiotic relationship with nature and the sea: the Main Deck is formed of a spacious and seamless succession of spaces, from the owner’s cabin to the cockpit, through the main lounge.
In addition, since the Upper Deck can only be accessed via an internal stairway in the centre of the yacht, owner and guests can all count on their privacy.
“Once again Benetti has managed to amaze with unprecedented innovation, thanks to its decision to work with a new designer and use of cutting-edge technologies, but also to the in-depth study and improvement of production process control, resulting in more quality,” Franco Fusignani commented.
Adding to the list, a remarkable 10 units of the Fast 125 have been sold to date, with exteriors by Stefano Righini and interiors by London-based design firm RWD.
At 38.1 metres in length and with a displacement of 197 tonnes, this Class category yacht has a range of 1,750 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots.
The key selling point of Fast 125 is the combination of the D2P hull (Displacement to Planing), designed by Pierluigi Ausonio and the Azimut|Benetti Research & Design Centre, with the low drag, high efficiency carbon Azipull propulsion system.
This solution delivers a top speed of 24 knots, easy manoeuvrability, reduced consumption and excellent comfort thanks to a significant reduction in vibration and noise levels.
Fast 125 has four guest cabins for eight people, all with private bathroom, plus four cabins for seven crew members.
