Benetti presents US premiere of Motopanfilo 37M in Superyacht Village
The Italian superyacht builder is staging the American premieres of the new Motopanfilo 37M, Oasis 40M and 47m Bacchanal at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Benetti is staging the US debuts of both the new Motopanfilo 37M and Oasis 40M at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (October 27-31) along with the 47m custom build Bacchanal, appearing at a show for the first time.
The Italian builder will be showcasing the Motopanfilo 37M in the Superyacht Village after the model’s world premiere in September at the Cannes Yachting Festival, where the Oasis 40M also appeared, having debuted at the 2020 Genoa International Boat Show.
The Motopanfilo 37M is Benetti’s newest Class yacht and has been inspired by Benetti’s navettas from the 1960s. The exterior lines by Francesco Struglia with Benetti echo the vintage style of the period, joining hull and superstructure to create a clean-cut profile.
The yacht features an intricate and remarkably light interior design by Lazzarini Pickering Architetti. The striking décor is by Loro Piana Interiors, which has chosen classic fabrics for ‘summer on the water’ and used linen in shades of white, blue and malachite, also in some exterior areas.
The first Oasis 40M, Rebeca, is ‘coming home’ as she’s owned by American powerboat racer Tim Ciasulli. The yacht features exterior styling by UK design firm RWD and interiors by New York-based Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture.
Its standout feature is the Oasis Deck™, featuring an almost 1,000sqft multifunctional beach area with a 270-degree views around wings that open out, just a few steps from the water, and a waterside swimming pool. The bridge is designed as a multifunctional space with full-height glazing and a futuristic helm station.
Among Benetti’s custom builds, the 47m Bacchanal has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. Highlights include a sun deck that features a tailor-made swimming pool clad in mosaic, while the main deck is characterised by a spacious ‘in and out’ veranda featuring a full-width sliding door with frameless glass.
The exterior styling is by the shipyard, while the interiors are a joint effort between Mauricio Gómez de Tuddo, the architect chosen by the Mexican owner for his second Benetti, and the Benetti Interior Style Department, who led a strong ‘Made in Italy’ imprint with brands such as Minotti, Flexform, Giorgetti, Rimadesio, Poltrona Frau and Exteta.
The Azimut-Benetti Group announced strong financials for 2020/21 including 10 sales of the new Azimut Grande Trideck.
