The first example from Benetti’s new fast displacement range of semicustom megayachts was launched at this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The Veloce 140 is equipped with a new displacement-to-planing hull that allows it to reach relatively high speeds while still retaining the stability of a traditional displacement hull when cruising at lower velocities. Driven by two 3,500 hp MTU engines—the most powerful Benetti has ever employed—the 140-foot yacht can reach a top speed of 21 knots.

Its spacious sundeck offers guests 829 square feet of space and is equipped with a hot tub and a long bar. The upper deck has an open layout that seamlessly transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces. At the bow on that deck, an intimate lounging area features sun beds and a second, deep hot tub. The forward portion of the main deck is dominated by a large, full-beam gym outfitted with Technogym equipment, while the aft section houses the yacht’s 12-person dining table and main saloon. Below-deck accommodations include the owner’s cabin, two double-bed cabins, and two additional cabins equipped with twin and Pullman beds.

Subsequent examples of the Veloce 140 line are currently under construction, with the second yacht in the series expected to launch before year’s end. (benettiyachts.it)
