Benetti’s Viareggio shipyard launched the first unit of Motopanfilo 37M. The interiors of the fiberglass and composite yacht was designed by Lazzarini Pickering Architects and Francesco Struglia in collaboration with Benetti created the exterior. The design of the yacht is inspired by the 60s “navette” and the stylistic notes of that successful era. Scheduled for delivery this September, just after her debut at the Cannes Boat Show, the yacht accommodates 10 guests across 4 cabins and 7 crew members, including the captain.
The line of the first unit of the Benetti Motopanfilo 37M resemble the finest nautical traditions with a contemporary twist to meet the needs of modern owners. A beach club allows easy access to the water. The central face of the transom, sharply inclined downwards, opens up to expose a 37-meter bathing platform.
The Main Deck’s saloon features modern-style glazed surfaces and gently curved ceilings. Towards the stern, the ceilings take on a double-curved effect. The owner’s suite is located toward the bow of the main deck.
On the Lower Deck, the cabins follow the relaxed curve of the hull. The ubiquitous rib structure appears here with an inversion of colors and materials compared to the Main Deck. The four comfortable guest cabins amidships feature double beds and toward the bow, in a separate area, three cabins are dedicated to the six crew members. From the lobby, a spiral staircase winds around the central mast that rises through two decks.
Designed for pleasant moments in the open air, the aft part of the Upper Deck features areas for relaxation, conversation and sunbathing. The captain’s cabin is adjacent to the wheelhouse, and on the exterior towards the bow, there is a Jacuzzi and sunbeds. The Observation Deck is positioned above the hardtop.
The displacement hull, designed by P.L.A.N.A. (PierLuigi Ausonio Naval Architecture), guarantees smooth navigation and maximum comfort while onboard. The engine room houses a pair of MAN V12s of 1029 kW (upgradeable to 1213 kW) each, which ensure the yacht a maximum speed of 16 or 18 knots depending on the engines chosen, with a range of 3,800 nautical miles at the 10-knot cruising speed.
