Glitz, Glamour, and Lots of New Transoms

The 2015 Cannes Yacht Festival features 140 new models including the Benetti 125 Fast Displacement Yacht

By Capt. Ken Kreisler

There is something about being in the Med, in the South of France, in September. The weather is as good as it gets and for those of us in the yachting business, and akin to the popularity of the annual film festival held here, well there is the International Cannes Yacht show.

This year’s presentation, from September 8 – 13,  will offer no less than 140 new yachts from builders all over the world. And besides the many Italian yachts scheduled to be in attendance, Benetti will be showcasing the latest addition to its fast displacement hull fleet, the Vivace 125.

The Benetti Vivace 125 fast displacement yacht is an elegant statement from this noted builder.

Vivace 125′  joins the flagship Class Fast Displacement line, Veloce 140’, and takes inspiration from its forerunners construction technology, stylistic features, and spatial layout.

The bow area can be configured in a number of ways including this spa/hot tub set up.

The Benetti Vivace 125’ is a composite and carbon construction yacht built at the Viareggio boatyard; it is a 125ft/38.10m by 27+ft/8.30m semi-wide body with three decks plus a sun deck. Much like its bigger sister, the Veloce 140, 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 includes 4 suites for 8 guests with the owner’s full beam quarters forward on the main deck. Whether she is used for charter service or private use, the captain plus a crew of 7 will be available to see to all the needs of the guests.

The grand master suite offers the owners an environment that is both artistic and elegant.

Thanks to an exclusive agreement, the Vivace 125′ is equipped with an innovative series of carbon Azipull 65C azipod transmissions expressly designed by Rolls-Royce for Benetti. The D2P Displacement Planing® hull, equipped with wave piercer, was perfected by Benetti technicians for the Rolls-Royce propulsion pod by optimizing all the stern tunnel thrusters and those elements impacting hydrodynamics. 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.
