Double Launch For Benetti’s Popular Fast 125′

Benetti has just launched two Fast 125′ yachts in Viareggio, marking a high point for the Italian shipyard’s hugely popular model. Launched within a few days of each other, the new yachts My Way and Charade are the fifth and sixth Fast 125′ vessels to be constructed so far.

Part of the popularity of the 38.10 meter/125 foot model is due to the thoughtful superstructure and interior design which offers an impressive amount of space and potential for a yacht of this size. Set over four decks and a beam of 8.3 meters/27 feet, My Way and Charade both offer four VIP suites and a generous owner’s suite as well as a wide variety of indoor and outdoor lounge spaces spread across the yacht.

Another triumph for this model is the Azipull Carbon 65 propulsion system which is the fruit of a collaboration with Rolls Royce and provides both yachts with a top cruising speed of over 20 knots. Thanks to clever usage of lightweight composite materials, the system is highly efficient and ensures easy handling and maintenance as well as permitting a more effective use of space.

Another attractive feature is Benetti’s decision to offer owners a whole host of customization options to create a yacht perfectly suited to their needs. Owners can choose between two pools, either a smaller one on the Sun Deck or a roomier version situated on the Upper Deck. Another example of the customization on offer is the choice of three interior design themes, Air, Land or Sea, which have been created by with British designers RWD. The new owners of My Way and Charade have both opted for the Air design which offers a clean contemporary finish with a minimalist vibe.

Benetti will deliver both yachts to their respective owners in time for them to enjoy the summer season. The shipyard is currently also working on their seventh Fast 125′ which is scheduled to be delivered to her new Turkish owner in 2019.
