Benetti has launched the BF104 Lejos 3 – a 38m superyacht from the Fast line on May 23 at its Viareggio shipyard. Lejos 3 is the fourth Fast 125’ unit to be built by the shipyard. Fitted with the innovative Azipull Carbon propulsion system, she will be delivered to the owner in the coming months.

The launch of the Lehos 3 comes just a few days after the market debut of Skyler, the third unit in the series, that joins the Ironman and the Constance Joy, respectively first and second hull of the Fast 125’ line.
The motoryacht is 38.1m long and 8.23m wide, with four decks. It comes with a five-cabin layout, including four VIP cabins and an owner’s suite on the main deck, where people can also find the saloon/dining area. On the upper deck is another living area and a large custom pool in bow, while the sun deck is equipped with a swimming pool.
Stefano Righini designed the exteriors and Redman Whiteley Dixon was responsible for the interiors, which are based on Benetti’s Air configuration among the three decoration options (Air, Land and Sea) offered to Benetti Fast 125’ owners.
The vessel is also equipped with the azipull propulsion system developed jointly by Benetti and Rolls Royce. Designed specifically for Fast 125’, the system delivers high performance in terms of weight reduction and handling.
The technical innovations installed on-board include the D2P_Displacement to Planing® hull – designed by Pierluigi Ausonio in conjunction with the Azimut Benetti Research & Development centre – with wave piercer, which allows the yacht to be used both in displacement mode for reduced consumption at low speeds, as well as in planing mode at higher speeds, offering maximum comfort on board in both cases.
