At the International Superyacht Society (ISS) Annual Gala for Design & Leadership, held on November 2nd 2016 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Benetti was one of the evening’s main protagonist.
The shipyard’s new 38-meter Ironman, in fact, won the Best Power Design Award, in the category 24 to 40 meter yachts.
Ironman is the first of five Class Fast Displacement Vivace 125’ yachts sold; a 38 meter semi-widebody with three decks plus the sun deck. The yachts is characterized by a modern design and packed with high-tech content. The Award is a recognition of the amazing collaboration between Benetti and designers Stefano Righini – who developed the exterior design – and interior designer Alfred Karram Jr – in charge of all the internal design –. Sold to a young owner, Ironman interiors were inspired by the famous cartoon hero, an inventor in love with technology, hence a very modern style, aesthetically innovative.
The yacht’s technical performance is excellent too: the D2P_Displacement to Planing® hull form with wave piercer is also equipped with an innovative series of Azipods - developed by the shipyard in collaboration with Rolls-Royce - that allows the boat to cruise both in low consumption displacement mode for leisurely voyages, as well as at faster speeds, up to a maximum of 24 knots, without compromising on comfort.
