Written by Rachael Steele

The exterior is designed by Stefano Righini while the internal design was completed by Redman Whiteley Dixon. Of the three layout versions offered by Benetti to Fast 125 owners – Land, Air and Sea – the Air configuration is the most contemporary and was used for luxury yacht LEJOS 3, placing facilities across 4 decks.

Accommodation includes an Owner’s suite and four VIP staterooms. The main deck will contain a main salon and formal dining area and an additional lounge is available on the upper deck, where the bow also holds a large custom swimming pool.

A smaller swimming pool is available on the sun deck, which is designed entirely for the entertainment of guests.

One of the main draws for Benetti 125 owners is the Azipiull propulsion system that Benetti designed in conjunction with Rolls Royce, providing excellent performance in handling and weight reduction. Along with other technical innovations, most notably the Displacement to Planing® (D2P) hull, which allows the yacht to switch between modes for maximum comfort at low and high speeds respectively, the Benetti Fast 125 range is proving an attractive proposition for luxury yacht owners.

Luxury yacht LEJOS 3 will cruise the Mediterranean this summer season and is likely to attract attention on social media.
