First Tradition Supreme 108 superyacht Hull BK001 by Benetti with delivery in October 2013

November 20, 2012

The new Tradition Supreme 108 motor yacht Hull BK001 has been recently moved to the outfitting area of the Benetti yard. Designed by renowned Stefano Righini, Hull BK001 superyacht follows the path of the successful Tradition 105 yacht.

Tradition Supreme 108 motor yacht Hull BK001

Tradition Supreme 108 motor yacht Hull BK001

The 33-meter luxury yacht Hull BK001 has a composite structure, and for the first time in the history of the Benetti Class range, the sun deck, roll-bar and hard top are constructed using fiberglass-carbon composites, creating a considerably lighter, and stronger deck structure.

Tradition Supreme 108 superyacht Hull BK001

Her three decks (peculiar in a 108′ yacht), give a considerable increase in living space and on-board comfort and guarantee a more complete separation of guests and crew, safeguarding their privacy. Another plus of these decks lies in their vertical communication: guests will have two external ramps to reach the main deck, and two further ramps (one internal, one external) to reach the sun deck, while the crew will use a separate ramp, which also communicates with the main galley.

Tradition Supreme 108 luxury yacht Hull BK001

Full height main deck windows amplify natural light and increase the feeling of being outdoors. The wheelhouse’s vertical window gives 180° visibility to the helmsman, and at the same time gives a shiplike profile. Among the various pluses of the design, are the lateral balconies, ample sky lounge and immense sun-deck, were created to give the owner and his guests the full enjoyment of open air living.

Ten guests can be comfortably accommodated in five cabins: an Owners suite on the main deck and four guest cabins (two with double berths and two with twin berths) on the lower deck. As with all Benetti yachts, interiors spaces are completely customizable.

The twin MAN engines give the Tradition Supreme 108 yacht Hull BK001 a top speed of 13.5 knots, and a cruising speed of 12.5 knots. The first Supreme 108 will be delivered in October 2013.

Azimut Grande 140 yacht to feature Rolls-Royce Carbon Azipull 65C

September 17, 2012

The italian luxury yacht builder Azimut Grande of the Azimut-Benetti Group, announced that the new Azimut Grande 140 superyacht will boast the new wave-piercing hull coupled to a lightweight pod system, as a result of a new partnership with Rolls-Royce. Rolls-Royce will manufacture, exclusively to the shipyard, state-of-the-art carbon azipod propulsion system series, specifically created for the all-new D2P Displacement to Planing hull with the “Wave piercer” bow.

Azimut Grande 140 yacht

Rolls Royce Carbon Azipull 65C

Thanks to the agreement signed in exclusive with Azimut Grande, Rolls Royce will bring a revolutionary innovation on board the line of this new generation: the Rolls-Royce carbon Azipull 65c pod.

The Rolls-Royce pods are able to produce over 2.000 kW power each. The main purpose has been to develop the best hull shape for the Rolls-Royce propulsion pod, according to the layout/exterior model design brief, optimising all the hydrodynamic aspects as well as the hull tunnel, to obtain the best possible water flow over the propellers.

The D2P_Displacement to Planning  hull with the “Wave Piercer” bow has been conceived specifically for the Rolls-Royce pod propulsion system. Through an optimisation process of all the geometrical aspects of the stern tunnel and those related to hydro-dynamical coefficients, the improved propulsive efficiency of the pod drives compared with conventional axis line propulsions has been optimised.

The innovative Rolls-Royce propulsion system, an azimuthal pod which allows control over the drag of each pod through 360°, guarantees optimal manoeuvrability at high speed, but also at low speed and while docking. Dynamic behaviour and general hull manoeuvrability at different speeds have also been accurately studied.

Rolls-Royce Azipull 65c – Key Features

A transmission with azimuthal pulling propellers (rotatable through 360°), permits easy handling with a simple joystick, enabling the optimisation of interior “noble” spaces thanks to the shifting towards the stern of its center of gravity. Another advantage of the Rolls-Royce Azipull 65c transmission is it’s carbon construction, with a “twisted” profile – giving an improved hydrodynamic efficiency – with integrated exhaust emissions and a fin which improves course stability at different speeds. An expressly designed 5-6 blade propeller which finally optimizes overall performance.

Azimut Grande 140 superyacht unveiled in Cannes

September 17, 2012

Motor Yacht Azimut Grande 140 is the newest concept by the Italian yacht builder Azimut Grande of the Azimut-Benetti Group, unveiled at this year’s Cannes Boat Show. Azimut Grande 140 superyacht is the largest model ever built by Azimut Grande and the new flagship of the range.

Azimut Grande 140 yacht

Azimut Grande 140 yacht

This motor-yacht is born from the combined experience of Azimut and Benetti. Thanks to the revolutionary D2P_Displacement to Planning  hull, the new yacht creates a unique concept: the performance of a planning hull combined with the cruising comfort of a displacement hull.

The new geometry of the new D2P_Displacement to Planning  hull is the result of a research process initiated with a very complex project, continuing with virtual 3D simulations and culminating with tank-testing at the Brodarski Institut in Zagreb. During this last phase, propulsion tests of the hull to verify final propulsive efficiency and the relative speed performances were also processed.

The new Azimut Grande 140 yacht hull, compared to regular hulls with same displacement, guarantees a significant reduction in wave resistance, with a consequent reduction of consumption and an overall increase in efficiency and cruising range.

Style and layout

Exteriors of the new motor yacht Azimut Grande 140 were designed by Stefano Righini while the interior concept has been entrusted – for the first time at Azimut Grande – to the famous British yacht design firm Redman-Whitley-Dixon, which has successfully collaborated with Benetti in the past. This new model is proposed in three different stiles and 15 lay-outs, bringing the concept of customisation to the next level. This is the result of the boatbuilding experience of Azimut and Benetti, along with market requirements.

From the three concepts developed by Redman-Whitley-Dixon, LAND, SEA  and AIR , each providing a unique interior space with a distinctive set of individual features and a character of their own,  the Owner will then be able to choose from no less than 15 mixes of layout and style.

SEA  provides a dramatic yet casual space with a distinctive air of the coast. Sun bleached timbers and natural fabrics create a modern, light space with delicate colour accents. Bronze metal details literally weave the timber feature panels together, to add a feeling of formality to an otherwise relaxed interior style.

AIR  is a contemporary space that uses elevated surfaces and clean defined lines to create a spacious, open interior. Vertical metal accents wrap overhead dividing fabric panels and appear to support highly polished surfaces. Mirrored kick recesses and lacquered surfaces are a striking contrast to the luxurious gloss timber doors and feature walls. Crisp, dramatically lit gesso panels provide interesting focal points in the saloons and dining spaces.LAND  provides a feeling of tailored English luxury, a softer, contemporary take on the classic panelled interior.

A layering of timber surfaces and fine detailing exude style and a distinct attention to detail. Rich, finely patterned fabrics and bronze accent features are accompanied by deep fabric colours that contrast the light, herringbone fabric wrapped panels.

Main features of the new Azimut Grande 140 yacht

- Three decks

- Two Spa Pool’s, one on the main deck with the lunch and lounge areas and sun-beds, which allows the best possible privacy when at dock. The second Spa Pool is located on the sun deck.

- Beach Area equipped with lounge bar, chaises longues, shower and a day head – the space was obtained by moving the tender and water toys to a lateral garage.

Luxury yacht Azimut Grande 140, as every Azimut Grande, bases its strength on the most important synergy that has ever existed in the yachting world. Azimut’s technological leadership in high performance hull construction is merged with Benetti’s expertise in developing custom solutions and managing customer relations during the different construction phases. Azimut Grande takes full advantage of Benetti’s expertise in advanced design and construction technologies in the mega-yacht market, and offers yacht owners a wide panel of creative options in semi-custom boat production.
