A successful launch of the new BF104 M/Y “Lejos 3”, a 38 meter superyacht from the Fast line, occurred on Tuesday, May 23 at Benetti shipyard in Viareggio.
M/Y “Lejos 3” is the fourth Fast 125’ unit to be built by the shipyard. Fitted with the innovative Azipull Carbon propulsion system, she will be delivered to the owner in the coming months.
38.1m long and 8.23m wide, the layout of the M/Y “Lejos 3” is divided across four decks, featuring four VIP cabins, an owner’s suite, a saloon/dining area on the Main Deck and another smaller living area on the Upper Deck. There is also a Sun Desk, which is designed entirely for the entertainment of guests, who have the luxury of enjoying the Sun Deck's standard swimming pool or the larger custom pool in bow of the Upper Deck.
The sleek, sporty exteriors are designed by Stefano Righini, and the interior spaces by Redman Whiteley Dixon. These interiors are based on Benetti's Air configuration, the most contemporary of the three interior decoration options (Air, Land and Sea) offered to Benetti Fast 125’ owners.
The Azipull propulsion system developed jointly by Benetti and Rolls Royce continues to convince owners. Designed specifically for Fast 125’, the system delivers excellent performance in terms of both weight reduction and handling. The technical innovations installed on-board include the D2P_Displacement to Planing® hull – designed by Pierluigi Ausonio in conjunction with the Azimut Benetti Research & Development center – with wave piercer, which allows the yacht to be used both in displacement mode for reduced consumption at low speeds, as well as in planing mode at higher speeds, offering maximum comfort on board in both cases.
The launch of the M/Y “Lehos 3” comes just a few days after the market debut of M/Y “Skyler”, the third unit in the series, that joins the M/Y “Ironman” and the M/Y “Constance Joy”, respectively first and second hull of the Fast 125’ line.
