Benetti presented Fast 125 M/Y Skyler


The state of the art in the yachting industry

Skyler is the third unit of the Benetti Fast range, equipped with an AZP C65 propulsion system, the most technologically advanced on the market, and will be delivered to her owner in June 2017. With a length of 38.1m and a beam of 8.3m, built in composites and carbon in Benetti’s Viareggio shipyard, the Fast 125 is a four deck semi-wide body yacht with a total of 5 cabins. The sporty exterior was designed by Stefano Righini using an expanse of horizontal windows to accentuate the yacht’s streamlined look. Another key feature is a remarkable central element in the side of the superstructure that covers the access stairway to the upper deck. Her luxurious interior was designed by Redman Whiteley Dixon, based on the ‘Air’ configuration, one of the three interior style options that Benetti offers to their Fast 125 owners. The owner, an experienced yachtsman, requested many custom touches such as widespread use of loose furniture from famous design brands such as Glyn Peter Machin, Sutherland, Minotti and Meridiani.

Skyler is equipped with the new generation propulsion system designed by Rolls Royce specifically for the Fast 125 family: the Azipull Carbon 65 (AZP C65). The Azipull is a high performance, lightweight, steerable thruster that uses carbon fibre throughout, even for load carrying parts. This innovation has substantially reduced the propulsion system’s weight. and allowed for a better vessel layout while maintaining high propulsion efficiency and easy maintenance. The system offers excellent manoeuvring capabilities both in navigation and while docking.

The interior, is simple, contemporary and clean to leave the natural elegance of the precious natural materials used in the décor intact. The lower deck layout also enjoyed major benefits from the instalment of the new propulsion system. The system’s reduced dimensions allowed for an engine room placed well aft so that more room was left for the side-opening garage with space for an almost 6m tender and two jet skis. Additionally, having the garage between the engine room and the guest area keeps the cabins better isolated and especially silent. On the main deck, the saloon is especially bright and luminous thanks to a generous use of glass that lets natural light flood into the light-toned space. There is a liberating sense of space in the saloon. Here, Benetti has created a real continuity between inside and outside, thanks in part to the huge floor-to-ceiling picture windows.

‘Efficient and lightweight propulsion is key to reducing the environmental impact of a modern yacht,’ said Vincenzo Poerio, Benetti CEO. ‘We have been working closely with Rolls-Royce on a journey towards an optimised propulsion system for our new line of megayachts. The successful result of this collaboration has been confirmed: Skyler is the third unit of this series to be built and other three are under construction.’
