Benetti will be exhibiting five yachts between the Cannes Yachting Festival and the Monaco Yacht Show for the first time in the world, ranging in length from 29 to 63 metres.
The flagship of the Azimut-Benetti fleet at the Cannes Boat Show, which kicks off on 10 September, will be Bangadang, the eighth Fast 125 yacht. Stefano Righini‘s exteriors are combined with RWD’s interior design, which here offers the Air option (one of the three available, together with Land and Sea). It is equipped with Azipull Carbon 65 propulsion and the D2P hull designed by RWD in collaboration with the Azimut Benetti R&D centre. A second command post on the Sun Deck and tinted windows for more privacy are worth noting.
Along the croisette there will also be Aslan, the seventh example of Dolphin 95. The exteriors are by Giorgio M. Cassetta while the interiors are by Benetti’s Interior Style Department. It boasts a customized Jacuzzi in the bow spaces of the Upper Deck and fabrics by Loro Piana used in shades of white, blue and red.

The interiors are designed by the English studio Bannenberg & Rowell, with whom Birgit Otte Interior Atelier has collaborated. The exteriors are by Giorgio M. Cassetta. The main features are the gym on the Fly Deck, the “touch and go” platform for the helicopter and the owner’s apartment of over 160 square meters with two double beds and a terrace.
Along the quays of the Principality there will be Eurus and Big Five, whose exteriors are also made in this case by Giorgio M. Cassetta.
