Contract signed for build of new Benetti Vivace motor yacht

Contract signed for build of new Benetti Vivace motor yacht

Arcon Yachts in Monaco has announced the signature of a contract with the Italian Benetti yard to build a sixth Vivace 125 motor yacht.

The first in this series, christened Iron Man (pictured), was introduced to the world at the 2015 Yachting Festival in Cannes and met with universal approval. Arcon will supervise the construction of this successor, due for delivery in November 2017. The second hull in the series is due for launch this spring, while a further three are under construction.

Measuring 38.1 metres overall, the Vivace 125 series is built in carbon composite to a design by Stefano Righini with elegant interiors by Alfred Karram Jr. Accommodation is for 10 guests in five cabins consisting of a main deck master suite with two VIP suites and two twins below, all with en suite bathroom facilities.

The saloon has a lounge area with flooring in black, white and grey granite matched by wall paneling in grey stained exotic wood while forward is a formal dining area with a custom table boasting a crystal glass table top supported by stainless steel columns. Further forward still is a country style kitchen with a dinette providing casual snacks.

Naturally, a yacht of this stature has a beach club, and in this case it comes with a full wet bar. Astern on the upper deck is ample seating while forward is a swimming pool.

Twin 2,636hp MTU diesel engines give the Vivace 125 a cruising speed of 17.5 knots and a range of 1,250 nautical miles at 12 knots.
