Benetti’s B.Yond – A New Generation of Expedition
Benetti’s B.Yond, whose name comes from the charm and innovation that shy away from common categories, is the outcome of a radical rationalisation of onboard volumes and settings, with utility and privacy for guests front of mind on all four of the yacht’s decks. Intelligent solutions give as much space as possible to the owner, guests, crew and onboard services, ensuring comfortable, leisurely cruises with reduced environmental impact thanks to the new E-Mode propulsion system developed by Siemens for the shipyard. SISHIP EcoProp system allows to operate in four different configurations: Enhanced Comfort, ideal for night and coastal cruising with no emissions; Eco Cruise/hotel mode, for zero-emissions while cruising or at anchor; Extended Range, an option useful on very long trips to reduce consumption; Eco Transfer, for navigation with only one engine driving both shafts to reduce engine hours and improve performance.
B.Yond is 37 meter yacht, which has steel hull and aluminium superstructure, a beam of 8.6 meters and enclosed volumes similar to a 50-meter megayacht of almost 500 tonnes. The Main Deck is dedicated to cabins for the owner and guests, while the living area starts on the Upper Deck. The Lower Deck, on the other hand, is reserved exclusively for the crew and captain. To ensure greater privacy and comfort on board, decks are connected by two separated stairs, one for the Owner and his guests and one for the crew. Other models with the same philosophy will follow.
