Benetti Fast 140 yacht Ironman launched
by Chris Jefferies
This 42 metre yacht features exterior styling by Stefano Righini and interiors by Akj Design Concepts. The naval architecture was developed by Pierluigi Ausonio working in close collaboration with the Azimut Benetti research and development centre.
Key features include large expanses of glass in the main deck saloon that ensure a bright interior as well as superb views out to sea. This area is split into two distinct zones — one for relaxing and one for dining, with room for 12 guests seated around a central table.
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split between six cabins, including a main deck master suite, complete with bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and a private study area. Meanwhile, the crew quarters is suitable for a staff of up to seven people.
Out on deck, Ironman’s guests can relax on cockpit sofas with an adjacent table that is ideal for light meals or evening drinks. Up on the superyacht sundeck, there are further seating options, including two L-shaped sofas, a central C-shaped sofa and a pair of sunloungers.
Power comes from a pair of MTU 12V4000 M93L diesel engines for a top speed of 23 knots and comfortable cruising at 18 knots. When trimmed back to her economical speed of 12 knots, Ironman will boast an 1,800 nautical mile range, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 35,000 litres.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the Fast 125 yachts My Way and Charade, which were launched earlier this month and are also due for delivery this summer.
