Botti – 35.5m in length and has a fibreglass displacement hull and carbon fibre superstructure – had her exterior created by Giorgio M. Cassetta, while the interior was designed in-house in collaboration with the Radyca studio, which was themed around conviviality with warm-tone fabrics and wood.
The lounge is found on main deck, while the bow area is dominated by the full-beam master suite with two large windows.
On upper deck, there is an outdoor dining area, a large Jacuzzi and custom sundeck with sunpads and sofas for outdoor relaxation.
Uriamir, the 29m entry-level displacement yacht – second Delfino 95’ – also has a fibreglass hull and carbon fibre superstructure. Owner’s cabin is found on the main deck, while four guest cabins are located on the lower deck, with bow area reserved for the crew. The upper deck features a helm station and a swimming pool, while the sun deck features two sofas and a second external pilot station.
Power comes from two 1,000hp MAN V8 engines, enabling the yacht to achieve a top speed of 14.5 knots with a range of 2,400nm at 10 knots.
M/Y Lejos is a 38m superyacht and the fourth unit of the Fast 125’. One of her key features is the Azipull Carbon 65 system built in collaboration with Rolls-Royce, which composite materials are widely used to ensure good performance with weight reduction.
Stefano Righini developed the exterior, while the interior was designed by British studio RWD. The model is in Air version but two other configurations – Sea and Land – offer more options for owners.
Layout is spread across four decks, with five cabins accommodating 10 guests. Two swimming pools are available: one on the sun deck and the other on upper deck.
With a D2P Displacement to Planing hull, the yacht can operate in either displacement mode at low speeds or in planing mode at higher speeds. She can achieve a range of 3,000nm at 10 knots.
