Benetti’s BF2016, a 138-foot (42m) semi-displacement fiberglass yacht, was launched April 19 in Viareggio, Italy. M/Y Ironman is the sixth in Benetti’s Fast 140 series.
The yacht’s exteriors were designed by Stefano Righini, with interiors by U.S.-based designer Alfred Karram Jr. and his studio, AKJ Design Concepts. Naval architecture, including the trademarked D2P_Displacement to Planing hull with wave piercer, was designed by Pierluigi Ausonio and the Azimut|Benetti Research and Development Center.
Ironman can accommodate 12 guests and seven crew. A pair of MTU 12V4000 M93 diesel engines power the yacht from a cruising speed of 18 knots to a top speed of 23 knots. At 12 knots, Ironman has a range of 1,800 nautical miles. Total fuel capacity is 35,000 liters.
