Before Lejos 3, three other Fast 125’ have been delivered since the range in collaboration with Rolls Royce was launched – Iron Man, Constance Joy and Skyler.
Lejos 3 features the Azipull Carbon 65 (AZP C65), a high performance, lightweight, steerable thruster that uses carbon fibre throughout. This innovative propulsion system was designed by Rolls Royce specifically for the Fast 125’ family.
The 38.1m four-deck yacht boasts four VIP cabins, an owner’s suite, a saloon/dining area on the main deck and another smaller living area on the upper deck. On the sun deck is a swimming pool and on the upper deck is an even larger custom pool.
Stefano Righini created the exteriors, while Redman Whiteley Dixon handled the interiors based on Benetti’s Air configuration, which is among the three options including also Land and Sea.
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, it 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.
Lejos 3 is ready to navigate for about 2,700 miles in the Mediterranean during the summer season.
