Units two and three in Benetti’s Fast 125’ line, M/Y Skyler and M/Y Constance Joy, were delivered to their respective owners this month.
Like the first unit, M/Y Iron Man, both yachts are equipped with the new generation propulsion system designed by Rolls Royce specifically for the Fast 125’ line – the Azipull Carbon 65 (AZP C65), a high-performance, lightweight, steerable thruster made entirely from carbon fibre.
Thanks to the reduced weight, the system claims to offer a quiet ride. The engine room can be placed farther aft, says Benetti, leaving the guest cabins quiet and vibration-free. The new generation propulsion system also purports to provide excellent manoeuvring capability, both in navigation and while docking.
Both new yachts share a ‘D2P_Displacement to Planing’ hull form with wave piercer bow that allows the owner to use the yacht in displacement mode with low fuel consumption at low speeds and in planning mode at higher speeds.
Constance Joy was the second Fast 125’ to be sold since the line has been launched and is distinguished by its characteristic red hull. Skyler is a four deck semi-wide body yacht with a total of five cabins. Both models were built in Benetti’s Viareggio shipyard with a superstructure made of carbon and epoxy resins that is said to be 40% lighter.
The sporty exterior of the yachts was designed by Stefano Righini using an expanse of horizontal windows to accentuate the model’s streamlined look. The interiors of both yachts were designed by Redman Whiteley Dixon.
