Italy’s Benetti Group has delivered the sixth unit in its Fast 125’ series, M/Y Charade, less than three months since its launch. The 38m superyacht in the Class product line was built from composite materials and carbon fibre and was delivered to its new owner at Benetti’s shipyard in Viareggio.
Featuring a D2P_Displacement to Planing hull, Charade is also fitted with the Azipull Carbon 65 propulsion system developed in partnership with Rolls Royce. This ensures high performance at a top speed of 24kt and reduced consumption when cruising.
The sporty, flowing exterior lines were designed by Stefano Righini, while UK-based design firm RWD handled the interior with contributions from both the owner’s and the shipyard’s team.
There are three possible configurations for Fast 125’ models – Air, Land and Sea. Charade is fitted out with the Air option, the more contemporary of the three, featuring a modern design with clean, simple lines embellished by polished metal accents.
The four guest cabins are located on the lower deck: two symmetrically-positioned VIP cabins with double beds and bathrooms, and two guest cabins with sliding and one with pullman bed.
Forward on the main deck is the full-beam owner’s cabin. Flooded with natural light, it is appointed with a master 'his and hers' bathroom decorated with onyx and “larch” marble.
Also on the main deck is a living space with dining area and kitchen, from which the crew has access to their own cabins on the lower deck or the pantry on the upper deck using special stairways.
To reach the upper deck, guests can use a steel and glass aerial stairway designed by RWD and customised with backlit stone step tops. Here there is a more informal living area with a plexiglass grand piano, a gaming table and a sofa area with television. Outside, there is a spacious area for dining and relaxing.
Still on the upper deck, but forward in the bow area, is a custom swimming pool designed by the shipyard that can accommodate six people, accompanied by big sun lounging pads and a sofa area.
The sun deck is split into three areas: a lounge with a big sunbathing pad that can be transformed into sofas; a dining area with a coffee table that can be converted into a dining table and a big bar counter with retractable 55in TV; and an area in the bow with sofas and low tables.
