Let's ride the sea with Benetti Vivace 125 M/Y Iron Man

Here's another beauty from Benetti. With a sportive exterior the Vivace 125' M/Y Iron man is a three deck plus the sun deck semi wide body yacht with a length of 38.1m and a beam of 8.3m.

Iron Man is the first of the gamma and was sold to a young owner and, as the name suggests, whose interiors were inspired by the famous cartoon hero, an inventor in love with technology.  The exterior of Iron Man has four distinct areas devoted to the sea and on-board living. Astern on the upper deck, a lounge with a custom divan over two meters long and almost five wide, while forward a swimming pool and area for relaxing are added to the traditional sun-deck. As requested by its young owner the deck is equipped with an external steering position. The beach area has its own bar and is completely dedicated to enjoying the sea, thanks to the non intruding lateral garage opening.

The teak flooring is designed to respect the angular geometries of the superstructure and hull. The interior layout features four suites, plus the full beam owner's apartment on the main deck. The captain will have a crew of seven for running the yacht and catering to the guests.
 
The salon on this yacht has a sliding crystal door, intricately designed multi-tiered ceiling, custom designed dining table with crystal glass top. 
The main staircase here appears as a beautiful waterfall providing access to the wheel house and gymnasium and the VIP and guest suites below.  
 
The owner's apartment come with a spacious dressing room,  bedroom with a work table, a small salon and two bathrooms - his and hers.
The Master Cabin features the LED TV inset into a highly textured resin paneled wall.  The king size bed is shroud in soft gray leather, outfitted with sumptuous black satin linens. The design also foresees two large glass walls on either side that provide a perfect visual and natural light combination.


 
The galley comes with country kitchen equipped with a professional cooking area completely separate from a second area with a large table for the crew. As per the request of the owner a personal and well equipped gym has been created with latest technology to train in while cruising. Her revolutionary hull form allows the owner to use the yacht both in displacement mode with low fuel consumption for slow deliveries and at higher speeds in complete comfort. The quiet ride was obtained through the use of her special propulsion system which allows the engine room to be placed farther aft, providing increased isolation for the guest cabins. The Vivace 125' was awarded the RINA Comfort Class classification proving how silent and smooth her ride is.


 
The yacht's excellent performance is also due to the lightness of the hull, thanks to the introduction of carbon fiber and epoxy resins in the superstructure. This intelligent combination gives the yacht a 40% lighter weight when compared to traditional structures, where light weight equals improved performance. Now wouldn't you like to be a lucky guest on this excellent ride?
