The Ironman, BF206, has exteriors designed by Stefano Righini and interiors by Alfred Karram Jr with his studio Akj Design Concepts. The Displacement to Planing (D2P) hull with wave piercer, designed by Pierluigi Ausonio with the Azimut Benetti Research and Development Centre, delivers reduced consumption at cruising speed and a top speed of 23 knots.

On main deck, the large glazed surface is one of the stand-out features. An integral part of the décor, it floods the spaces with light and offers great sea views. The main lounge is divided into living and dining areas, with a table seating up to 12 people.

On the same deck also sits the big full-beam master suite, complete with bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and study. The outdoor spaces in the stern are furnished with a sofa and low tables that can be transformed into one big dining table.

The upper deck is home to the spacious pilothouse, containing the captain’s cabin fitted with a double bed, and the lounge area, separated by a sliding glass door, flows seamlessly between indoor and outdoor areas. Outdoor, seating is equipped with dining table and a sun lounging area.

The guest night area is on the lower deck and consists of five cabins including three VIP cabins with double beds. Aft on the same deck is the beach club provided with bar and living area.

The sun deck includes two big L-shaped sofas and one C-shaped at the central section, two smoking tables opposite the bar and a pair of sun loungers.
