Benetti Launch New 121' Classic

This is Benetti's second Megayacht launch in the last 2 weeks. Last Wednesday, 16th May, the Italian yard launched their newest yacht in the 121' Classic range, this was just a few days after they launched their first yacht in the Supreme Classic 132' range, (see image at the end of the article). The launching ceremony last week for the 121' Classic was attended by the owner and his family, technical personnel, yard staff and everyone who had been evolved in the project over the last 7 months.

The 121' shows the classic and traditional lines of the Benetti Class range, while incorporating a functional internal layout giving the owners and their guests a great sense of space and freedom. Comfortable, large external areas, relaxation areas and stylish interiors are the key features of a yacht designed for long range journeys over 3,400nm.

This technical launch marks the beginning of a series of on the water testing that will take place over the next few weeks. The tests will include inspections of the hull, engines and on-board systems while finishing and outfitting will continue according to the production schedule.

Below you can see Benetti's Supreme Classic 132' that was launched a few days previous. The Supreme Classic is not just a new model to complete the Benetti Class range, it is also the first model built and outfitted in the Lucca Dockyard, the company's new 4200m2 facility.
