Benetti launches first Diamond 145
The first Diamond 145 unit was launched by the Viareggio’s Benetti slipway a few days ago. The 44-meter-long Class category flagship was given its baptism in the sea at an impressive ceremony in front of hundreds of spectators. Benetti Diamond 145 is a powerful yet elegant yacht with a fiberglass hull, a gross tonnage of 456 tonnes, and a range of 3,600 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots. The design of the exteriors, taken together with the contribution from Benetti’s Interior Style Department, underscores the details and celebrates harmonious, balanced proportions. The yacht, of which two units have already been sold, is the only fiberglass yacht of this size available today on the market. The design of the big seamless glazed surfaces on the main decks flows along the entire length of the yacht, allowing natural light to flood into interiors accommodating 10 guests in four cabins on the Lower Deck, while the captain has a private cabin on the Upper Deck, near the helm station. In the stern, sliding glass doors open out onto a spacious beach area.
‘Diamond 145 springs from a project with a mission to improve life on board not only for owners and guests, but for all the crew too. The sheer size of the yacht has made it possible to adopt an impressively ergonomic approach that ensures a majestic stance, while embracing ultra-modern details combined with a style that reflects the concept of a timeless yacht‘, commented Giorgio M. Cassetta, who worked on the yacht’s exteriors.
