BENETTI MOTOPANFILO 37M: INSPIRED BY THE 1960S

Benetti has announced the sale of the second unit of its Motopanfilo 37M, signed with the intermediation of Ocean Independence. The brand new model, in fiberglass and composite material, stems from Benetti’s artistic and historical path, drawing inspiration both from the 60s “navette” and from the stylistic notes of that successful era, to create a product suspended in time.

The charm of the Benetti Motopanfilo 37M has enchanted a new owner, as the second unit has been sold to a German businessman. Already an experienced yacht owner, he has finally fulfilled his lifelong dream of owning a Benetti, going for one of the most distinctive designs in the shipyard’s fleet. The new contract has been signed with the intermediation of Swiss broker Ocean Independence.

Inspired by the Benetti “navette” from the ‘60s, the Motopanfilo 37M reinterprets those iconic, glamorous features incorporating them into a modern design, so to meet the needs of contemporary yacht owners and offer them a boat whose elegant lines evoke memories of the best nautical traditions.

With a 297 gross tonnage, the Motopanfilo 37M is characterised by compact and clean volumes. The external lines were designed by Francesco Struglia in collaboration with Benetti, complementing the interiors by Lazzarini Pickering Architects. The designers have conceived this model as a shell in which guests feel enveloped and protected: a compelling message to welcome guests, inviting them to relax amidst the timeless charm of this boat. The displacement hull, designed by P.L.A.N.A. – PierLuigi Ausonio Naval Architecture, ensures a smooth navigation and the greatest comfort on board.

Throughout the interiors, a sophisticated palette based on shades of light wood, white and blue, immediately brings the mind back to the tradition of seafaring, reinterpreted in a timeless key. An innovative, seamless, bronze metallic painted ribbon defines the bulwark running from the main deck to the upper deck overhang, a nod to the historic wooden cap rail. The definitive elements of the yacht include the Observation Deck which, positioned above the hard top, provides a small sheltered living area, absolutely intimate with a unique view at any time of day, and the transom, a nod to the iconic models of the Sixties with a modern twist in the form of a beach club, designed to respond to the expectations of today’s boat owners. The central face of the transom, sharply inclined downwards, opens up to reveal a bathing platform surprisingly ample for a 37-meter. This unit will also feature a signature light, highlighting her profile at night, and a custom swimming pool.

The layout places the owner’s suite forward on the Main Deck and four guest cabins on the Lower Deck for a total of 10 guests. Toward the bow on the same deck, three cabins are dedicated to the six crew members, while the captain’s cabin is adjacent to the wheelhouse on the Upper Deck.

Benetti Motopanfilo 37M will officially premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021 from September 7 th to 12th, where the shipyard will showcase the first unit, sold a few weeks ago and ready to be launched on July 28th.
