Designed by Pierluigi Ausonio with the Azimut|Benetti Research and Development Centre, this 8.4m wide yacht has the D2P (Displacement to Planing) hull with wave piercer to deliver high performance at top speed. And same as all the Fast 125’ models, she is fitted with Azipull Carbon 65 thrusters, a lightweight propulsion system developed in partnership with Rolls Royce.
The sporty exterior lines are designed by Stefano Righini, while the interior décor is by UK-based design firm RWD, working in close collaboration with both the owner’s and the shipyard’s team.
Charade is fitted out with the Air option, out of the three possible configurations for Fast 125’ models, which features a modern design with clean and simple lines embellished by polished metal accents. Steel is used for the frames of artworks on board, as well as televisions and bedheads, while the ceilings are clad in Majilite and leather.
The owner’s cabin on main deck is flooded with natural light and appointed with a master his and hers bathroom. The four guest cabins located on the lower deck include two symmetrically positioned VIP cabins with double beds and two with sliding and Pullman bed.
A steel and glass aerial stairway designed by RWD brings guests to the upper deck, where a more informal living area with a plexiglass grand piano, a gaming table and a sofa area with television offers rest and relaxation on board. Outside, there is a spacious area for dining, furnished with teak and steel drop-leaf tables that can be found in all the outdoor spaces. A custom swimming pool can comfortably accommodate six people, accompanied by big sun lounging pads and a sofa area.
The sun deck is split into three areas: a lounge with sunbathing pad that can be transformed into sofas; a dining area with a coffee table that can be converted into a dining table and a big bar counter with a retractable 55-inch TV; and an area in the bow with sofas and low tables.
