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.

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.

 

BENETTI: CLASS RANGE’S FAST DISPLACEMENT IS BORN

Benetti ushers in a new era. At the upcoming Cannes boat show, the Tuscan boatyard will unveil a third generation of fast yachts, rounding out the already extensive range of products which currently includes Class Range, semi-custom displacement vessels with 6 models from 93′ to 145′, and Custom, mega-yachts starting at 45 metres.

Benetti F-125′

The new Fast Displacement line of composite yachts built by Benetti in the Viareggio boatyard already includes two models: the F-140’, introduced last year, and the brand new F-125’, which is making its debut at Cannes 2013. With this new line, the boatyard intends to tap into a strong and as yet relatively unexplored market in semicustom super yachts with a sporty spirit. These are vessels characterised by their versatility, speed (when called for), but which are also extremely comfortable in displacement mode and highly efficient at any speed. Their dynamism perfectly unites with the sheer pleasure of on board living, and the construction quality and maximum customisation which Benetti is known for.

Benetti CEO Vincenzo Poerio says, “Many of our clients have requested faster, more versatile, and efficient boats, while maintaining the same level of comfort and customisation found in our existing yachts. The new Fast Displacement line is designed precisely in response to these requests, and it rounds out our current offering in the Class Range. We haven’t just created a new series; we have invested time and resources – combining the Benetti’s 140-years of experience in super yachts with the technological knowhow of Azimut Benetti Group – to create a new way of heading out to sea.”

The two Fast Displacement models were developed by Benetti in collaboration with the Azimut Benetti Group Research Centre, which has designed an extremely innovative hull geometry exclusively for the new range. The Fast Displacement yachts are equipped with a revolutionary new D2P_Displacement to Planing® hull which unites sportiness and the performance of a planing hull with the comfort and quiet of a displacement hull. The D2P® hull has been coupled with a wave piercer bulbous at bow, a combination which affords increased cruising efficiency (less resistance to forward motion) of up to 30% compared to a conventional hull.

The design of this new hull was carried out using a series of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamic) simulations to define the best possible geometries. This was followed by extensive tank testing to verify the computer simulations and validate the hull geometries and associated appendages. After an initial “theoretical” phase of developing the hull shape based on preliminary design data and layout (sizes, general plan, and design specifications), the design process then involved a hull optimising phase using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamic) simulations. The development of the hull shapes was quickly followed by tank testing (at the Brodarski Institute in Zagreb) during which important hull components were optimised and validated including the bow wave piercer and the stern tunnel thrusters. The tank testing also included hull auto propulsion tests on all the appendages, to verify the final propulsion efficiency and associated speed performance.

The D2P® hull is equipped with a wave piercer, enabling 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. The hull has been optimised for the entire range of most frequently used speeds, including displacement modes from 10-12 knots with increased range as well as cruising speeds and maximum speed of 22 knots in semi-displacement mode.

Compared to the traditional semi-displacement hull, the new D2P® hull offers countless advantages:
• Increased efficiency at all speeds and therefore maximum flexibility of use
• Lower fuel consumption and therefore greater range
• Higher cruising speed and therefore reduced transfer times
• Significant reduction in pitch and slamming and therefore increased cruising comfort

Today, the new Fast Displacement Class Range includes two new models, the F-125’ and the F-140’. This is a clear sign that Benetti has entered the new market of semi-custom fast yachts and that it is rounding out its range to satisfy even the most demanding boatowners, ever respectful of the values which have distinguished the Benetti boatyard over its 140-year history: innovative technology, design, customer service, and construction excellence.
