Benetti has announced a new model: the B.YOND 37M, an expedition yacht built to travel the world. The first in Benetti’s latest line of compact, steel exploration yachts. The concept behind the vessel's layout is based on creating a clear distinction between night, day, leisure and service areas, which involved adding a fourth deck. The Benetti B.YOND 37M would be built in steel and feature over 200 square metres of glazed surfaces.

The Benetti B.YOND 37M would deploy e-Mode propulsion architecture developed for the shipyard and would have a range of between 5,000 to 10,000 nautical miles, depending on the navigation mode chosen.
More details about the model are expected to be revealed in October, with Benetti set to unveil the second model in the range: B.YOND 44M.
