Benetti VIVACE 125’ world debut at Cannes yachting festival 2015 (8-13 september)
Benetti Vivace 125′ – second model of the Fast Displacement series – will make its debut at the next Cannes Yachting Festival (8-13 September).
Vivace 125′ joins the flagship Class Fast Displacement line, Veloce 140’, and takes inspiration from its forerunners construction technology, stylistic features, and spatial layout. Benetti Class Vivace 125’ is a composite and carbon construction yacht built at the Viareggio boatyard; it is a 38.10 metre by 8.30 metres semi-wide body with three decks plus sun deck. Much like its bigger sister, Stefano Righini has designed the F-125′ with a sporty exterior employing generous amounts of horizontal windows to accentuate the sleek lines; its hallmark is a large central design element at the sides enclosing the upper deck stair.
The interior layout is articulated in 4 suites for 8 guests and the owner’s apartments forward on the main deck, at full beam. The captain plus a crew of 7 is available to see to all the guest’s needs.
Thanks to an exclusive agreement, Vivace 125′ is equipped with an innovative series of azipod transmissions expressly designed by Rolls-Royce for Benetti: carbon Azipull 65C pods.
The D2P_Displacement Planing® hull equipped with wave piercer was perfected by Benetti technicians for the Rolls-Royce propulsion pod by optimising all the stern tunnel thrusters and those elements impacting hydrodynamic coefficients. The result is an even greater improvement of the already enhanced propulsion efficiency of the pod drives.
The D2P® hull with wave piercer enables the new Fast Displacement series to reach higher speeds without engine strain, or to cruise in displacement mode at an economical speed with a much greater range.
Full details of the yacht will be released during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2015.
