Constance Joy was the second Fast 125’ to be sold since the line has been launched and she distinguishes herself for her red hull. The Fast 125’ Skyler is a four-deck semi-wide body yacht with a total of five cabins. Both were built in Benetti’s Viareggio shipyard with a superstructure made of carbon and epoxy resins that is 40% lighter.
The exterior of the yachts was designed by Stefano Righini using an expanse of horizontal windows to accentuate the model’s streamlined look. Redman Whiteley Dixon designed the interiors of both yachts, which is based on the “Air” configuration, the most minimal of the three interior style options that Benetti offers to their Fast 125’ owners.
Both yachts, as well as the first iconic unit Iron Man, are equipped with the new generation propulsion system designed by Rolls Royce specifically for the Fast 125’ family: the Azipull Carbon 65 (AZP C65), a high performance, lightweight, steerable thruster that uses carbon fibre throughout, even for load carrying parts.
Thanks to the reduced weight, the system offers a quiet ride: the engine room can be placed farther aft, leaving the guest cabins quiet and vibration-free. Another advantage offered by this innovative propulsion system is the high manoeuvring capability in both navigation and docking.
They share also a Displacement to Planing (D2P) 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.
