On the morning of Saturday 25 January, the first Diamond 145 unit was launched by the Viareggio’s Benetti slipway. The 44-metre-long Class category flagship was given its baptism in the sea at an impressive ceremony in front of hundreds of spectators.

Welcoming the Authorities, the public, suppliers and all the company’s workers and office staff, Azimut Benetti Group President Paolo Vitelli spoke at the launch.

“Slipway launches are part of the history of Benetti shipyards. We have a great tradition and hundreds of yacht launches to our name, but the revolutionary features of the Class category today promise to bring Benetti new success.

“This slipway is in fact a launch pad for our technical expertise and desire to push ahead, in a technological challenge focused on the goal of continuity”.

When paying his compliments to all the designers, the President made a point of thanking Giorgio M. Cassetta, who worked on the yacht’s exteriors:

“Giorgio has given a soul to a yacht that integrates innovation and tradition”.

Giorgio M. Cassetta commented on his work by saying: “Diamond 145 springs from a project with a mission to improve life on board not only for owners and guests, but for all the crew too. The sheer size of the yacht has made it possible to adopt an impressively ergonomic approach that ensures a majestic stance, while embracing ultra-modern details combined with a style that reflects the concept of a timeless yacht”.

Diamond 145 is a powerful yet elegant yacht with a fibreglass hull, a gross tonnage of 456 tonnes, and a range of 3,600 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.

The design of the exteriors, taken together with the contribution from Benetti’s Interior Style Department, underscores the details and celebrates harmonious, balanced proportions.

The design of the big seamless glazed surfaces on the main decks flows along the entire length of the yacht, allowing natural light to flood into interiors accommodating 10 guests in four cabins on the Lower Deck, while the captain has a private cabin on the Upper Deck, near the helm station. In the stern, sliding glass doors open out onto a spacious beach area.
