Monday, February 11, 2019 7:03 PM
Benetti is pleased to announce the sale of the first unit of the Diamond 145 model, the 44-meter displacement yacht presented last September during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2018. The exterior lines, featuring huge glazed surfaces that accentuate the length of the yacht and ensure that the interiors are flooded with natural light, are the work of Giorgio M. Cassetta. The interiors feature light colour shades to decorate the yacht’s roomy, welcoming settings.
The year couldn’t have got off to a better start for Benetti. The Shipyard proudly announces the sale of the first Diamond 145 unit. The new flagship in the Class product line is a yacht that symbolises power and balance.
Benetti’s CEO Franco Fusignani expressed his great satisfaction at the signing of the contract: “Diamond 145 was presented only four months ago but right from the design stage we realised it was a model with incredible potential, representing the perfect synthesis of the core features of the Benetti Displacement Class across its entire history. BP001 is currently being fitted out at the Viareggio shipyard and will be delivered to her owner on the first half of 2020”.
Diamond 145 is a yacht with a discreet sense of luxury that amazes even the most demanding owners when it comes to style, comfort and safety. She is an elegant yacht, with proportions and details that suggest important interior and exterior volumes, as well as conveying a sense of strength and power.
The sleek, clean exterior lines designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta embrace the proportions of a big yacht, with superstructure masses that are refined and dynamic, high hull sides high and an extremely long reverse sheer line.
The interiors, customised to reflect the owner’s tastes, features curved lines uniting big, welcoming settings flooded with natural light. In here, light colourways bring a cosmopolitan sophistication and elegance to a timeless yacht. As well as the spacious interior volumes, another feature of this yacht, are the extensive glazed surfaces not only in the saloons, but also in the guest accommodation and the owner’s cabin. The Master-cabin is full-beam, with a big wardrobe, a full-beam bathroom and an office, and occupies the bow area on the Main Deck.
Amidships on the main deck are the galley and services area, with a big saloon further aft. At the owner’s request, it was decided to leave more space for the lounge area furnished with big sofas in the main saloon. The dining area has been moved to the Upper Deck. The Lower Deck contains the night area for guests, with four double cabins, and a separate area for the crew accommodation. Outside, a low table and various sofas offer pleasant opportunities to relax both at sea and at anchor.
The beach club in the stern is designed to be at water level, in such a way as to make the space both independent and versatile, as well as being stunning to look at.
Two 1,400 hp Man engines drive BP001 to a top speed of 15 knots and at a cruising speed of 11 knots the yacht has a range of 3,800 nautical miles.
