At the International Superyacht Society (ISS) Annual Gala for Design & Leadership held Nov 2 at the Broward Centre for the Performing Arts in the US, Benetti was one of the evening’s main protagonists.
Ironman is the first of five Class Fast Displacement Vivace 125' yachts sold; a 38-metre semi-widebody with three decks plus the sun deck. The yachts is characterised by a modern design and packed with high-tech content. The Award is a recognition of the collaboration between Benetti and designers Stefano Righini – who developed the exterior design – and interior designer Alfred Karram Jr – in charge of all the internal design. Sold to a young Owner, Ironman interiors were inspired by the famous cartoon hero, an inventor in love with technology, hence a very modern style, aesthetically innovative.
The yacht’s technical performance is excellent too: the D2P_Displacement to Planing hull form with wave piercer is also equipped with an innovative series of Azipods – developed by the shipyard in collaboration with Rolls-Royce – that allows the boat to cruise both in low consumption displacement mode for leisurely voyages, as well as at faster speeds, up to a maximum of 24 knots, without compromising on comfort.
Benetti Vivace 125' 38m M/Y Ironman will be featured in the Nov/Dec issue of Asia-Pacific Boating magazine.
