The Benetti Classic 121 Lady Lillian was launched May 18. The owner will take delivery in July.

Benetti Yachts said it launched the 121-foot Lady Lillian, which is in the builder’s Classic range, at the company’s yard in Viareggio, Italy, on Thursday.

The owner was there and will take delivery in July.

Benetti said the yacht has a 26.8-foot beam and a displacement of 259 tons, and it draws 7.5 feet. It has a fiberglass hull and superstructure and is powered by twin MTU 2000M72 inboards rated at 1,450 bhp.

Lady Lillian has an estimated top speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots. The maximum range is 3,400 nautical miles at 11 knots.

The concept and exteriors of the Classic 121 are by Stefano Righini; Francois Zuretti designed the interiors with a focus on giving the boat a modern, contemporary style.

The layout features four staterooms on the lower deck, plus the owner’s suite, which is in the bow on the main deck. There’s a formal outdoor dining area on the upper deck and a more casual area on the sun deck that features a hydromassage tub and a bar and grill.
