Italian Builder – New Fast Displacement Megayacht

Posted on

When it comes to yachting, the words, “Fast” and “Displacement” are rarely uttered in the same sentence.  In part, displacement yachts tend to be built heavier and wider, to achieve maximum comfort.  The tradeoff for this stability at sea has traditionally been speed.

However, one builder continues to throw convention to the wind.

Italy’s Benetti Yachts, has unveiled a third generation of fast yachts, rounding out an extensive range of vessels which currently includes class range semi-custom displacement vessels from 93′ to 145′, and custom-built megayachts starting at 45 meters.

The new Fast Displacement line of composite vessels built by Benetti in Viareggio, Italy includes two models — the Benetti F-140, first introduced in 2012, and the brand new Benetti F-125.  The new line Benetti F-125 is designed to be truly versatile, offering speed when needed, but at the same time fuel efficiency and comfort.

In a recent press release, Benetti CEO Vincenzo Poerio touted the new line: 

“Many of our clients have requested faster, more versatile, and efficient boats, while maintaining the same level of comfort and customization found in our existing yachts. The new Fast Displacement line is designed precisely in response to these requests, and it rounds out our current offering in the Class Range. We haven’t just created a new series; we have invested time and resources – combining the Benetti’s 140-years of experience in super yachts with the technological know-how of Azimut Benetti Group – to create a new way of heading out to sea.”

Comfort and luxurious European styling make Benetti yachts popular rental vessels.  Italian yacht charter customers often request Benetti yachts by name.

Some of the popular Benetti yacht charter vessels include:

Motor yacht SILVER ANGEL – designed specifically for extensive long-range cruising

 Motor yacht CHECKMATE  – a 2013 addition to the #Monaco yacht charter marketplace
 
Motor yacht DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER – the latest James Bond boat to honor the heralded film franchise
