Benetti delivers two


Benetti launched and delivered the seventh unit in its Fast 140 series on April 16 in Viareggio, then launched and delivered the seventh unit in its Fast 125 series eight days later, also in Viareggio.

BF207, a 138-foot (42m) Fast 140, can host 12 people in six cabins on four decks. The yacht has a D2P Displacement to Planing hull and twin 3,500hp engines by MTU. Its exterior was designed by Stefano Righini, and the interiors were designed in the “LAND” style – one of three designs, along with “SEA” and “AIR,” provided by British studio RWD for Fast 125 and Fast 140 owners. The yacht has a range of 500nm at an average speed of 16.5 knots, and at 12 knots rises to 1,800nm. The maximum speed is about 23 knots, according to Benetti.

BF107, a 124.6-foot (38m) Fast 125, is the seventh delivery in two years of what Benetti calls one of its most successful models. The yacht is equipped with an AZP C65 propulsion system, the result of a collaboration with Rolls Royce. A special D2P Displacement to Planing hull designed by Pierluigi Ausonio and the Centre for Research and Development at Azimut Benetti along with a wave piercer combines the advantages of a displacement hull at low speeds with those of a high-performance planing hull, guaranteeing reduced fuel consumption, according to Benetti.

BF107 has four bridges and five guest cabins. The crew area accommodates up to seven people. Stefano Righini also designed the exterior of this yacht, and the interior follows the “AIR” style designed by RWD. Two 2,600hp MTU (16V 2000M96L) engines provide a maximum speed of 22 knots. Range at 12 knots is 1,750nm, according to the company.
