Benetti sells seventh Fast 125 yacht to Turkish owner
by Chris Jefferies
Italian yard Benetti has announced the sale of BF107, the seventh hull in its Fast 125 series of 38.1 metre tri deck motor yachts. The Turkish owner is a repeat client of the yard and will take delivery in 2019.
Exterior styling comes courtesy of Stefano Righini, while the interior will be finished in eucalyptus and bay, based on the Air configuration developed by British studio RWD. This design combination was previously seen on hull number three, Skyler (pictured below).
Accommodation for up to 11 guests is split between five cabins, including an owner’s suite, three double cabins and a twin with a Pullman berth. Meanwhile, the crew quarters are suitable for a staff of up to seven people.
Key features on board include a side-loading tender garage, leaving enough room for a fully-fledged superyacht beach club back aft, complete with its own bar area. Further al fresco relaxation is offered on the foredeck, where guests will find a hydromassage spa pool, sofas and sun loungers.
The propulsion system is one of the Benetti Fast 125’s main selling points. Developed in collaboration with Rolls-Royce, the Azipull C65 features steerable carbon thrusters and takes up less space in the engine room than a traditional shaft-drive unit. Power comes from a pair of 2,636hp MTU 12V2000 M96L engines for a top speed of 24 knots and a cruising range of 1,750 nautical miles at 12 knots.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the new 28.95 metre Delfino 95 series, with hull number one launched last month and named Christella II.
