Following the summer launch of the first unit of Motopanfilo 37M, Benetti offers us a look inside this modern composite displacement boat. Her external lines were designed by Francesco Struglia, in collaboration with Benetti, while the Lazzarini and Pickering studio were responsible for the interiors. Loro Piana Interiors furnished the interiors and covered parts of the exteriors with classic summer and sea materials.
The Motopanfilo 37M offers wide and incredibly bright spaces, constant visual contact with the sea and large terraces that descend to touch the surface.
For the exterior, Francesco Struglia takes up the forms of the powerful style of the past and joins the hull and the superstructure, uniting them into a harmonious element. The external profile, characterized by neat and clean cuts that enhance the lines of the boat, has elongated, elegant and austere shapes. Negative shapes divide the surfaces with a very modern 45° cut, and where once the volume cuts were finished with a wooden headband, now there is a bronze-colored strip to emphasize the new taping, which defines the bullwark and turns on itself up to the stern creating decor theme both modern and classic at the same time.
The central hatch is opens forward to increase its surface while becoming the bathing platform. Tenders and jet skis find shelter in a side-garage so as not to interfere with life onboard.
The Observation Deck is positioned above the hard top, and serves as a small fourth deck. It is furnished with an enveloping chaise lounge.
The well-known architectural firm Lazzarini Pickering designed the interior of the new motorboat like the skeleton of a large whale. Hence, the primary idea of the designers to mark the space with architectures that recall the beams of the past and dematerialize the walls, letting the large side windows contain the space, with a voluntary total opening that is not interrupted even by the furnishing elements. This work includes a skilful use of mirrored surfaces which, framing the windows, reflect the sea and sky, bringing the image inside and expanding the spaces. From the lobby, a spiral staircase winds around a central shaft that, almost like a spine, crosses the two decks leading guests up to the skylounge on the upperdeck.
In the saloon, the complete replacement of the old bulwarks with exclusively glazed surfaces led the designers to decide to use natural wood. Selected in a warm shade, it reinterprets the nautical tradition, and is accompanied by the use of white and blue, now in new shades. There is the owner’s suite forward on the main deck and four comfortable guest suites on the lower deck that feature double beds. On request it is possible to install a small sauna also on the lower deck.
