M / Y “Uriamir” is the second unit of the Delfino 95′, the Benetti fleet’s entry level yacht. A 29-metre displacement yacht with a fibreglass hull and carbon fibre superstructure, exteriors were designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta, while interiors were developed in accordance with the owner’s specific requests, alternating light and dark materials such as marble and tay and tanganica woods, with polished and matt surfaces also bringing stylish contrast.
On the Lower Deck are four guest cabins, while the bow area is reserved for the crew. The Main Deck, enhanced by a beautifully laid wooden floor, is where the owner’s cabin is found. Benefitting from two separate wardrobes and a double bathroom, this spacious cabin leads to the main saloon with its large windows on the beam. The Upper Deck features a helm station, while a swimming pool with panoramic views is found in the bow area.
The exceptionally large Sun Deck is a real novelty for yachts of this size and features two sofas and a second external pilot station, ideal for enjoying every moment of the cruise. The garage can accommodate a 4.4-metre tender, while the engines are two 1,000-hp Man V8s, which enable the yacht to achieve a maximum speed of 14.5 knots and a range of 2,400 nautical miles at 10 knots.
The third unit of the Mediterraneo 116′ models, M/Y “Botti”, a 35.5 meter yacht, will also be available to view. With a fibreglass displacement hull and carbon fibre superstructure, M/Y “Botti’s” exterior was created by Giorgio M. Cassetta, while the interior was realized by Benetti’s Interior Style Department in collaboration with the Radyca studio.
The main theme of the interior design is conviviality: exquisite fabrics and wooden details in warm tones with soft lighting to enhance a sense of relaxed calm. The lounge is found on the Main Deck, while the bow area is dominated by the full-beam Master Suite with two large windows. On the Upper Deck is the outdoor dining area and, towards the bow, a large Jacuzzi and custom sundeck. Inside is the Sky Lounge and captain’s cabin. The Sun Deck, with sunpads and sofas, is designed for blissful outdoor relaxation, both underway and at anchor.
M/Y “Lejos3”, is a 38-metre superyacht and the fourth unit of the Fast 125′. An exclusive model that boasts a propulsion system built in collaboration with Rolls-Royce, it is equipped with Azipull Carbon 65 (AZP C65). This is a highly efficient, reliable and light system that, thanks to the widespread use of composite materials, is able to guarantee excellent performance in terms of weight reduction and manoeuvrability.
The layout is spread across four decks, with plenty of space for the four VIP cabins. The owner’s suite and a living room with interior dining is found on the Main Deck, with another sitting room on the Upper Deck, not to mention the Sun Deck, dedicated as the perfect place for socialising and entertainment. Two swimming pools are available: one on the Sun Deck, with another wider pool found in the Upper Deck bow area.
Stefano Righini developed the exterior design, which is characterized by sleek and sporty lines, while the British studio RWD designed the interiors. For this model, the Air version has been chosen, but there are two other configurations.
Among the technical innovations, the yacht also features the revolutionary D2P Displacement to Planing® hull, designed by Pierluigi Ausonio in collaboration with the Azimut Benetti Research and Development Center. Thanks to the wave piercer bow, the yacht can operate in either displacement mode, ensuring reduced consumption at low speeds, or in planing mode at higher speeds, delivering outstanding comfort across the board. This remarkable efficiency is the reason the yacht is able to achieve an outstanding range of 3,000 nautical miles at 10 knots.
