Built from composite materials and carbon fibre, Charade features sporty exterior styling by Stefano Righini, with naval architecture by Pierluigi Ausonio in collaboration with the Azimut|Benetti Research and Development Centre.
RWD is responsible for her modern interior, with input from both the owner and the shipyard’s team.
She shares the same D2P Displacement-To-Planing hull with wave piercer as My Way, the fifth Fast 125 superyacht, combining the benefits of a displacement hull at low speed with those of a high-performance planing hull.
Power comes from twin 2,600hp MTU 16V2000 M94 diesel engines and an advanced Rolls-Royce Azipull C65 propulsion system, resulting in a top speed of 24 knots and cruising speed of 18.5 knots.
The layout of Charade extends over four decks, and she can accommodate up to 11 guests. She features four guest cabins on the lower deck, two VIP cabins with en-suite bathrooms and two cabins with a sliding and pullman bed respectively. The owner’s cabin is located forward of the main deck, with a private bathroom decorated with onyx and marble.
Standout features include her RWD-designed steel and glass aerial stairway, the plexiglass grand piano positioned in her informal living area, and the custom-built swimming pool located in the bow area on the upper deck.
