Benetti has revealed new details about its on-going project, B.Yond 37m, the first of three models in the Benetti Expedition category. The Italian shipyard has partnered up with the Siemens Marine Global Competence Centre for this build, using their SISHIP EcoProp system, which guarantees low fuel consumption and a reduced impact on the environment and was developed specifically for the Azimut|Benetti group.

As part of this effort, each deck will have its own separate function.Photo: Benetti Yachts
The main and lower decks will serve as living quarters for the owner and guests and the crew and captain respectively. Guest accommodation encompasses a full-beam owner's suite in the bow and four guest staterooms. Along with the owner's suite, two stern staterooms can be fitted with a private terrace. Up to six crew can sleep in four cabins and the captain has their own sizeable suite. Two separate stairways connect the decks: one for guests and one for captain and crew.Photo: Benetti YachtsThe upper deck can be accessed via stairs from the central foyer and is designed to serve as a living area, with the main saloon and a dining area inside, and an al-fresco dining area and a lounge on the outside. The B.Yond 37m also has a wheel deck which shows off a lounge with sliding glass screens, as well as a hydromassage tub, and the sundeck boasts an al-fresco dining table covered by a hard top along with a sunbathing area.
Other onboard amenities include a sizeable garage with space for two jet skis and two tenders of 6.5 and 4.2 metres, a beach club with sauna and a toy room, and a fully-equipped gym or a sixth stateroom can be added depending on the owner's preferences.Photo: Benetti Yachts
With Siemens' propulsion system, which can operate in four different configurations - enhanced comfort, eco cruise/hotel mode, extended range and eco transfer -, the Benetti B.Yond 37m can reach up to 14 knots and has an impressive range of 5,000 nautical miles when cruising at 10 knots.Photo: Benetti Yachts
