Veloce 140’, the new jewel in the crown of the Benetti Class Fast Displacement range, is perfect for enthusiasts looking for speed thrills.
Veloce 140’, is a new addition to the Benetti Class Fast Displacement range. It is a semi-custom yacht with a D2P (Displacement to Planing) hull designed by Pierluigi Ausonio Naval Architecture Studio and the Azimut|Benetti Research and Development Center. The new hull is energy-saving, allows a 12-knot cruising speed and the ability to travel at speeds of over 20 knots with absolute ease.
The hull of Veloce 140’ was first built for a yacht owner. It has highly customised interiors, starting with the layout, which can be designed according to individual requirements. The exterior styling and concept was developed by Stefano Righini, while the interiors have been designed by British RWD-Redman Whiteley Dixon, in collaboration with the owner’s designer. The interior and exterior decor is the work of international architect Joao Armentano.
The woods used in Veloce 140’ primarily include light gray TAY and slate gray TABU for the flooring. The decorative elements are in a silver lacquer finish and the ceilings in alcantara with a white lacquer finish. All stainless steel features are given a satin finish. The interior furnishings are by Minotti, the lamps by Flos and the taps and fittings by Gessi.
Inside the technological heart of 140’, it is worth noting the use of the largest engine ever mounted at the Viareggio Benetti shipyard: two MTU 12V 4000 M93L 3500 mhp engines. It is also equipped with a system of CMC Marine electrical fin stabilizers.
The large Sun Deck of Veloce 140’ covers more than 77 sq. m on the highest ‘bridge’ of the Benetti yacht. This large terrace overlooks the sea and is dominated by a central pool that faces the spectacular living area of the yacht: an extended section on the right, serviced by a long linear bar on the left. Another feature of this bridge is the seats in the bow that offer a frontal sea view.
All the furniture on the Upper deck can be moved with ease, to create a large circular area that extends outdoors and indoors. Astern, there is a large dining table that seats sixteen people. There is also a relaxation area that leads to an internal sky-lounge through electric concertina doors. This provides a large open plan area that is partly air-conditioned.
At the bow you’ll find the yacht’s second pool, which is deeper than the other and has a ladder to ease oneself into the water and relax in the whirlpool. There are two large sunbeds and a living area with a sofa and coffee table.
The Main deck is dominated by a large gym, designed at the first owner’s behest. The equipment is from the Technogym Personal line and there is also a massage area.
Further astern, there is a large dining area seating twelve and a massive living area that extends outdoors, once again creating a seamless indoor-outdoor environment. The cockpit has a day bed that can quickly convert into a relaxation area.
The Lower Deck has five cabins, one for the yacht owner, two doubles, and two for guests, with twin and pullman beds. There are also four crew cabins, to accommodate eight crewmembers at the far end of the bow. The lower deck features an extensive ‘beach club’ area, accessed by a double flight of steps and equipped with a central bar counter running the length of the bulkhead. The garage is placed transversely to the beam, and can accommodate up to two tenders.
