First look at Benetti’s superyacht ‘Iron Man’

Making her debut at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival for viewing by appointment-only, Iron Man was a stand out vessel at the event following her launch in June earlier this year.

As a smaller version of Benetti’s 140 Veloce series, the Vivace 125 is built on an increasingly popular split-personality semi-displacement (displacement to planning, or D2P in short) hull form that offers a higher top speed in semi-planning mode, while providing an economical range during full-displacement cruising. She is equipped with an innovative series of azipod transitions designed specifically by Rolls Royce for Benetti, called carbon Azipull 65C pods.

The exterior of Iron Man has been fitted with expansive exterior guest areas. The sun deck has been kept open with a selection of freestanding furniture that can easily be moved to suit any occasion. The owner requested an external piloting position to be fitted on the sun deck; a custom feature found on hull number one.

Another entertainment area on board is the generous foredeck, which has been divided into smaller gathering and sun bathing areas. This is also where guests can relax in the Jacuzzi, treated to uninterrupted views.

The interior was designed by Alfred Karram Jr of AKJ Design Concepts, who adopted the owner’s youthful spirit and request for a modern yet user-friendly space.

Karram commented, “The goal of the design concept for the Iron Man project was to create a one of a kind space that would boast a highly innovative modern aesthetic look through the use of sharp and dramatic geometries.”

The yacht has a four-cabin layout for her eight guests, with a full beam master suite forward on the main deck.
