Italian Builder – New Fast Displacement Megayacht

Posted on

SUPERYACHT WITH SPEED AND DISPLACEMENT

The words, “fast” and “displacement” rarely appear in sentences about yachts.   In the first place, displacement yachts tend to be built heavier and wider.  This is to achieve maximum comfort.  Trade-off for this stability at sea is traditionally speed.  However, one builder continues to throw convention to the wind.

BENETTI YACHTS

Italy’s Benetti Yachts, unveils a third generation of fast yachts.  This rounds out an extensive range of vessels.  For instance, class range semi-custom displacement vessels from 93′ to 145′ and custom-built megayachts starting at 45 meters.

WHAT MAKES THEM SPECIAL?

This new fast displacement line of composite vessels includes two models.  Not only Benetti F-140 (2012), but also brand new Benetti F-125.  As with other models, the new line Benetti F-125 is designed to be truly versatile.  In addition, it offers speed when needed, but also offers fuel efficiency and comfort.

 

 

BENETTI CEO COMMENTS

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.”

 

EUROPEAN STYLING

Comfortable luxurious European styling make Benetti yachts popular.  Equally important, yacht charter customers often request Benetti yachts by name.

 

BENETTI YACHTS IN OUR FLEET

There are many popular Benetti motoryacht charter vessels.  For example, SILVER ANGEL,  CHECKMATE, and DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER.  Diamonds Are Forever is the latest James Bond boat to honor the film franchise. Silver Angel is designed specifically for long-range cruising.  Checkmate is a 2013 addition to the #Monaco yacht charter marketplace.

NEW BUILDS

The Mediterranean yacht charter marketplace is bursting at the seams with over a dozen new builds in the past 12 months. Many of the newest yachts have been delivered to their owners and the luxury yacht charter crews are busy preparing these mega yachts for their Mediterranean yacht charter season.

 

BENETTI YACHTS

The eagerly awaited Benetti mega yacht AMNESIA and superyacht CRN Ancona MARAYA have now been launched to great acclaim. The 196.8′ (60m) megayacht AMNESIA is chartering in Croatia.  In addition, she goes to southern Italy for the summer, as well.  After that, she heads to the Caribbean for winter.

 

MARAYA

Super yacht MARAYA translates as “many mirrors.”  She spends part of 2008 in luxury yacht charter service.  Her crew of 15 is eager to put in a full summer.  In particular, offering customers either a French Rivera yacht charter, or a Croatia yacht charter.  The Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival are close.  The volumes of deck space on this superyacht make her ideal as a corporate event yacht.

 

AICON SPA YACHT

A number of smaller, more intimate yachts, suitable for 4 to 6 passengers, are eager to enter. Specifically, both the Western and Eastern Mediterranean, and Turkey and Greece yacht charter markets this summer. Leading the way is the 2009 speedy 23 meter Aicon Spa yacht ENCORE, with accommodations for 6 to 8 guests.

 

MISTER JINGLES

The super-charged yacht MISTER JINGLES, also built in 2009 and will be cruising from the French Riviera on down to the Amalfi coast at a blistering 35 knots.

Another highly successful summer charter season is anticipated in the Mediterranean.  Keep your eyes opened for more new builds to hit the seas this spring.
