Benetti has confirmed that the first Motopanfilo 37M, the model inspired by the 60s and the iconic glamour of this era, has been launched.

03 August 2021


Inspired by the Benetti navette from the 1960s, the Motopanfilo 37M was conceived as a shell, reinterpreting those iconic, glamorous features and incorporating them into a timeless design across four decks.

Lazzarini Pickering Architects was responsible for the interiors, while Francesco Struglia, in collaboration with Benetti, signed the elegant exterior lines – reverberating the nautical traditions from a half-century ago while accentuating the contemporary design modern owners need.

The beach club transom echoes this respect for a bygone era while equally allowing easy access to the water. The central face of the transom, sharply inclined downwards, opens up to reveal a 37-metre bathing platform.

The saloon on the main deck presents modern-style glazed surfaces and gently curved ceilings, amplifying natural light throughout the room.

Toward the stern, the ceiling takes on a double-curved effect – a testament to the shipyard’s craftsmanship – while the owner’s suite, located toward the bow of the main deck, carries this captivating design forward.


On the lower deck, the cabin walls follow the gentle, relaxed curve of the hull. Four comfortable guest cabins are seen amidships, while three crew cabins are also present.

A spiral staircase winds around the central mast that rises through two decks from the lobby as it accompanies guests to the sky lounge on the upper deck.

The aft aspect of the upper deck has been purposed for open-air, convivial moments, providing spaces to enable relaxation, conversation and sunbathing. The captain’s cabin is adjacent to the wheelhouse, while an exterior jacuzzi and sunbeds are located toward the bow.

The observation deck on the new Motopanfilo 37M is positioned above the hardtop, providing a sheltered nook in the sky.

The displacement hull, designed by Pierluigi Ausonio Naval Architecture, ensures smooth navigation and maximum comfort while on board.

The engine room houses a pair of 1029 kW MAN V12s (upgradeable to 1,213 kW on request), guaranteeing a maximum speed of 16 to 18 knots and a cruising speed of 10 knots at a 3,800 nautical mile range.
