Benetti has launched two of its Fast 125 superyachts just days apart in Viareggio: BF105, My Way and BF106, Charade, which are the fifth and sixth model units built to date. Photo: Benetti Both My Way and Charade measure 38.1 metres with a beam of 8.23 metres and are built in composite materials and carbon fibre. They are also fitted with the Azipull Carbon 65 (AZP C65) propulsion system developed with Rolls Royce.
Both superyachts feature sporty exteriors designed by Stefano Righini, while their interiors are by the British design studio RWD. As for these interiors, both yachts are fitted out with the Air configuration, which is the most contemporary of the interior options offered by Benetti for new owners.
The layout of the two yachts extends over four decks, which provide the space for the owner's suite, four VIP cabins, a lounge with indoor dining area on the main deck and a small lounge located on the upper deck. Guests can choose between two swimming pools, one of which is located on the sun deck and another larger, made-to-measure one in the bow on the upper deck. Up to 10 guests can be accommodated on board.
In addition, the two yachts also share the same D2P Displacement to Planing hull with wave piercer, which combines the benefits of a displacement hull at low speeds with those of a high performance planing hull.
Designed by Pierluigi Ausonio with the Azimut Benetti Research and Development centre, this technology delivers reduced consumption at cruising speed and a top speed of over 20 knots, with both yachts reaching a maximum speed of 22 knots and cruising comfortably at 17.5 knots.
My Way and Charade are both expected to be delivered to their new owners before summer.
