MY Zehava – 7th Delfino 93’  launched
Launched in November 2013 the seventh Delfino 93’. This 28-metre MY Zehava will be delivered April 2014 and then remain in the Mediterranean. The newest of the popular Benetti Delfino 93’ series – the jewel of the Class range – it picks up on all the line’s key features, while adding important elements that make the vessel unique, including custom interiors. The exterior concept and design are by Stefano Righini. In this case, the Owner has made a significant contribution to the interiors, participating in all the design phases and working closely with the Benetti technical team. The sundeck is one of the areas which best reflects the Owner’s personal style: it is equipped with a large, theatrical mosaic tub that comfortably accommodates 4/5 people. MY Zehava is 28.5 metres long and 7.03 metres wide; it can accommodate 10 guests in 5 cabins, plus room for the crew. It is equipped with two MTU 8V2000 M72 (720 kW) motors enabling it to reach maximum speeds of 14 knots.

F-125: first hull of Fast Displacement Line arrives at Viareggio yard
Important updatdes also for the Fast Displacement line: the F-125 hull arrived in Viareggio at the end of November. The new model in the Fast Displacement line, which premiered at the Cannes Boat show last September 2013, is scheduled for delivery in June 2015. The new line is geared to take over that part of the market – up until now unexplored by Benetti – which loves and appreciates custom super yachts which feature extreme versatility: fast when required, but also extremely comfortable in displacement mode. All the “Fast Displacement” yachts will be equipped with the new, revolutionary D2P_Displacement to Planing® keel combining the performance of a planing keel with the comfort and quiet of a displacement one.

BENETTI “PANTHERA”: 47 METRES OF ELEGANCE, SPEED, AND ULTIMATE COMFORT

Benetti introduces the new FB502 m/y “Panthera”, the 47-metre aluminium yacht, whose contemporary style is simultaneously sporty and elegant.

The FB502 M/Y “Panthera” is the second yacht in the 500s series. The first one, FB501 “Imagination”, came on the market in 2010; and the third one, FB503, is scheduled for delivery spring 2014. Constructed at Benetti’s Livorno boatyard, the 500-series yachts are 100% aluminium, 47 metres long and 8.8 metres wide. Their hull geometry ensures superior performance (maximum speed 24 knots and cruising speed 22 knots), as well as significant stability while underway; noise and vibrations are almost completely eliminated, for enhanced comfort even at higher speeds. All this makes “Panthera” a fast and comfortable yacht with a style that reflects the refined personality of the Boatowner who has commissioned a contemporary yacht featuring timeless elegance. Clean, soaring lines and large tinted oval windows go perfectly with the metallic silver colour of the exterior, silver shades being the dominant colours of the “Panthera”. On the exterior, the teak detailing (traditionally black) is gray; and the interiors have a sophisticated combination of lighter and darker gray tones. A key feature highlighting the contemporary and carefully thoughtout aesthetic of the FB502 is given by the large fashion photos hung throughout the yacht’s main areas; whether in black and white or colour, large or small, framed or unframed, the images portray the magnetic feminine allure of gorgeous international models and actresses, adding even more glamour to this sophisticated yacht.

She wants to be – or better yet, she is – a luxury yacht, refined yet never opulent. To achieve this, Benetti architects and designers worked very closely with the Owner and his staff, so there was no need to engage any other external designer. The owner representative had clear visions regarding design and realised her ideas with determination. The work was largely one of subtraction, of eliminating excesses and ostentation; the result is a style which suggests pure beauty under the banner of simplicity, something far beyond the merely fashionable.

The FB502 has four decks: lower, main, upper, and sun deck. The lower deck is dedicated to the guest cabins. The VIP cabin is amidships with a double bed at full-beam, walk-in closet, and ensuite bathroom. There are two additional double-bed cabins, each with private bathroom. All bathrooms have refined finishes in different Bisazza mosaics. Towards the bow and with a separate entrance, there are four twin-bed cabins for the crew. The mechanical room is astern of the VIP cabin; and even further astern is the garage which accommodates both a tender and jet ski, with a large door opening onto a marvellous stern swimming platform providing nearly 10 m2 for beach chairs, shower, and a highly original customdesigned trampoline.

The main deck is a semi wide body. Climbing aboard astern, the elegant exterior saloon functions as a lobby onto the main saloon and is tastefully furnished with custom pieces from major Italian design companies. The fabrics and lamps are by Armani Casa as is the large, ten-person dining table, and the chairs surrounding it are by B&B. Moving towards the bow, past the main foyer, in one area there is the pantry.

The other leads to the Owner’s suite at full-beam with a spectacular view towards the bow and access to a private exterior lounge; the lounge is exclusively for the boatowner’s use, ensuring maximum privacy even at port. The cabin also has a spacious office, walk-in closet, and ensuite bathroom with marvellous Bisazza mosaics.

The upper deck has a large exterior area astern with couches and a covered skylounge; it also has a second VIP cabin, the captain’s cabin, and the interior piloting station. At the farthest point to the bow, there is a second area dedicated to open air living with enormous sunpad in the middle. The upper deck skylounge is one of the “Panthera’s” really special areas. It includes a fully equipped media room with terrific lounge couches of the german brand Tommy M and a maxi 46 inch movie screen; it can also be transformed into a disco with strobe lights and RGL LEDs complete with a cutting edge stereo sound system including a high-end vintage turntable for vinyl records at 33 and 45 rpm.

BENETTI PANTHERA-Sundeck

The sundeck offers guests a large sunpad, a corner bar, and awnings both to the bow and stern of the pool for maximum flexibility. From a performance point of view, “Panthera” is faithful to her name, lightweight and fast. While 47 metres long, the yacht’s aluminium construction means it only displaces 340 tonnes, a feature which, when combined with the narrow and elongated semidisplacement hull, delivers superior performance. The yacht has a maximum speed of 24 knots with a fuel consumption of 1.360 l/h, a 22-knot cruising speed, and a range of 3400 miles at the economical 12-knot speed.
