Since Benetti is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, clients like you can celebrate, too. Through just June of next year, you can commission a Benetti B.Yond Limited Edition yacht, a special version of the four-year-old series.
The B.Yond series prioritizes steel hulls for small superyachts, with more volume and more decks than expected, too. Specifically, the series includes four decks, offering areas and flexible living more like larger megayachts. Simultaneously, the series offers the transatlantic capability that bigger boats do, yet in a size suitable for essentially any marina.
At 131 feet (40 meters), the Benetti B.Yond Limited Edition yacht still offers all of this, along with some surprises. For example, the main deck features four VIP staterooms plus the master, therefore serving as a nighttime area rather than a daytime area. Considering most megayacht owners and guests don’t really use main-deck saloons and staterooms for hours on end, though, the switch seems logical. Additionally, situating the staterooms here lets friends and family wake up to wonderful views, much like your stateroom. If you cruise with big parties, a sixth stateroom can go below decks. Alternately, it can be a gym or spa. Your captain and crew, meanwhile, get five cabins below decks, along with a room nearby for dry or cold stowage. The latter is certainly a bigger-yacht feature, too.
While the main aft deck contains a glass-bottomed infinity pool as part of an extra-spacious alfresco lounge, a nearly 86-square-foot (8-square-meter) infinity pool awaits on the upper deck. The upper deck surely will be the all-day hang-out area, too, with 861 square feet (86 square meters) of open-air lounging space. There’s further an indoor lounge on this deck, with 360-degree views.
For a little more privacy while enjoying the scenery, the Benetti B.Yond Limited Edition yacht offers bridge-deck space. A cozy interior lounge accompanies sunbeds outside. If you want to learn when you’re arriving at your next anchorage, the wheelhouse is just forward. And, finally, the sundeck has both extra sunbathing space along with shaded dining and a bar.
As for watertoys, choose what you wish. The dedicated garage (yet another surprise for her size) can fit two PWCs and a tender to 21 feet (6.5 meters). The rescue tender further sits in here.
Ensuring the Benetti B.Yond Limited Edition yacht stands out on the horizon, she has a Vulcan Grey metallic hull, further with a black shield. A gold waterline, teak-handrail-topped glass bulkheads, and a backlit Benetti logo enhance the looks as well.
Similar to the traditional B.Yond series, the limited-edition megayacht series offers hybrid propulsion. With four operational modes, it allows all-electric cruising as just one option. Yet another option is Eco Transfer mode. With it, one diesel engaged permits an expected range of 8,200 nautical miles at 9 knots. Benetti and Siemens, its development partner, calculated the carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide reductions based on typical average use. That use, 1,000 operational hours with 400 of them underway, reduces carbon dioxide up to 24 percent and nitrous oxide up to 85 percent.
