The hull configuration of the Vivace 125 is similar to the Veloce 140, Benetti’s flagship and first of the Class Fast Displacement range, delivered last year. The arrangement known as the displacement to planning (D2P) hull enables the yacht to be used in displacement mode, with low fuel consumption as well in plaining mode. Performance is also enhanced due to the lighter hull, achieved by the introduction of carbon fibre and epoxy resins in the superstructure. this arrangement has resulted in a hull which is 40 per cent lighter compared to traditional structures in the same size category.
Iron Man is also equipped with a series of Azipods, resulting in a smaller engine room, leaving more living interior space.
The interior has been designed by the Miami based designers Alfred Karram Jr, known for their dramtic interplay with stone. The interior replicates the contemporary appearance of the exterior with the prominent use of grey black, white in addition to very simplistic furnishings. The layout features four suites, accommodating eight guests, plus a full beam owners apartment on the main deck.
In a statement to the press, Alfred Karram Jr states, “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 through the use of sharp and dramatic geometries via the use of very unique and state of the art materials and finishes”
