The 121’ is the crowning jewel of the Benetti Class range, featuring six models constructed in composite materials and ranging from 93’ to 145’ in length, all built at the historic Benetti boatyards in Viareggio. In the early hours of the afternoon, the yacht was lowered into the water, a ceremony witnessed by the owner and his family, along with technical personnel, workers, and all Benetti staff who oversaw outfitting and construction over the past several months.
The Classic 121’ is the iconic symbol of the Benetti brand for semi-custom models — the first Benetti Classic ever made ten years ago when production of the range got underway. Innovative exterior lines and a modern, functional lay-out for the interior lend the Classic 121’ greater freedom in the use and interpretation of space for the owner, as concerns both life on board and when cruising out at sea. Comfortable, large external areas, relaxation areas that are jovial or intimate, and spacious, stylish interiors are the key features of a yacht designed for long-range journeys too (over 3,400 nautical miles).
The outfitting includes the most modern navigation systems developed by the shipyard, with an integrated wheelhouse featuring the exclusive BEST platform (Benetti Exclusive Sea Technology), which integrates all the electronic systems and on-board equipment. The Classic 121’ brings together more than a century of history to assure the yacht owner the highest quality, technology, safety and reliability standards that distinguish Benetti yachts throughout the world.
The technical launch marks the beginning of a long series of tests and inspections covering the hull, the engines and the on-board systems, while outfitting and finishing will proceed according to the established production plan.
