Benetti debuts new models at Cannes show

Posted on

benetti0912Benetti Yachts unveiled a third generation of fast yachts at the Cannes Boat Show, which opened Tuesday and runs through Sunday.

The F-125 is the most recent in the Fast Displacement line of composite yachts built by Benetti in the Tuscan boatyard that makes the F-140, which was introduced last year.

With this new line the boatyard intends to tap into a relatively unexplored market in semicustom superyachts with a sporty spirit.

“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,” Benetti CEO Vincenzo Poerio said in a statement. “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 Benetti’s 140 years of experience in superyachts with the technological know-how of Azimut Benetti Group to create a new way of heading out to sea.”

The two Fast Displacement models were developed by Benetti in collaboration with the Azimut Benetti Group Research Centre, which has designed a hull geometry for the new range.

The Fast Displacement yachts are equipped with a new D2P Displacement to Planing hull, which unites a high-performance planing hull with the quiet of a displacement hull. The D2P hull has been coupled with a wave piercer bulbous at the bow, a combination that affords increased cruising efficiency because of less resistance to forward motion, increasing efficiency as much as 30 percent.
