Benetti launches the first Motopanfilo 37m, a boat suspended in time

Benetti’s Viareggio shipyard launched the first unit of the glamorous Motopanfilo 37M, a fiberglass and composite yacht designed by Lazzarini Pickering Architects for the interiors and Francesco Struglia in collaboration with Benetti for the exterior. To suspend the model in time, inspiration was drawn from the 60s “navette” and the stylistic notes of that successful era.

Planned for delivery this September, just after her debut at the Cannes Boat Show, the yacht accommodates 10 guests across 4 cabins and 7 crew members, including the captain. 

In Viareggio was held the ceremony for the launch of the first unit of the Benetti Motopanfilo 37M, whose elegant lines evoke memories of the finest nautical traditions with a contemporary twist to meet the needs of modern owners. Inspired by the Benetti “navette” from the ‘60s, the Motopanfilo 37M was conceived as a shell, reinterpreting those iconic, glamorous features and incorporating them into a timeless design across the yacht’s four decks. Lazzarini Pickering Architects designed the interiors and Francesco Struglia, in collaboration with Benetti, signed the elegant exterior lines. 

Down by the sea, the transom nods to the iconic models of the Sixties in the form of a beach club allows easy access to the water. The central face of the transom, sharply inclined downwards, opens up to reveal a bathing platform surprisingly ample for a 37-meter.

On the Main Deck, the tradition of wood and its enduring links with the sea have not been overlooked. In the saloon, modern-style glazed surfaces and gently curved ceilings amplify natural light thanks to the extensive use of warm wood and light colours for the floors. Towards the stern, the ceilings take on a double-curved effect, a testament to the shipyard’s excellence in craftsmanship. The owner’s suite is located toward the bow of the main deck, carrying the captivating design forward. 

On the Lower Deck, the respect for the innate character of each environment can be seen in the choice not to straighten the cabin walls, allowing them to follow the gentle, relaxed curve of the hull. The ubiquitous rib structure appears here with an inversion of colours and materials compared to the Main Deck. The four comfortable guest cabins amidships accommodate double beds and toward the bow, in a separate area, three cabins are dedicated to the six crew members. From the lobby, a spiral staircase winds around the central mast that rises through two decks as it accompanies guests to the sky lounge on the upper deck. 

The aft part of the Upper Deck is designed for convivial moments in the open air, with areas for relaxation, conversation and sunbathing. The captain’s cabin is adjacent to the wheelhouse, and on the exterior towards the bow, guests are welcomed by a Jacuzzi and sunbeds.Benetti - Motopanfilo 37mBenetti- Motopanfilo 37m

The Observation Deck, once carved out around the main mast but on the new Motopanfilo 37M positioned above the hard top, provides a sheltered nook in the sky, absolutely intimate with a special view.

The displacement hull, designed by P.L.A.N.A. (PierLuigi Ausonio Naval Architecture), ensures smooth navigation and maximum comfort while onboard. The engine room houses a pair of MAN V12s of 1029 kW (upgradeable to 1213 kW) each, which guarantee the yacht a maximum speed of 16 or 18 knots depending on the engines chosen, with a range of 3,800 nautical miles at the 10-knot cruising speed. Benetti - Motopanfilo 37mBenetti- Motopanfilo 37m
