Italian shipyard Benetti has announced that the second model of the fast displacement series, launched on June 15, will make her debut at the 2015 Cannes Yachting Festival in September.

Constructed from composite and carbon, the 38.1m superyacht has a D20 displacement planing hull, equipped with wave piercer. This configuration enables the Vivace 125 to reach higher speeds without engine strain, or cruise at an economical speed with a greater range.

Following the exclusive agreement with Rolls Royce, Benetti has fitted the Vivace 125 with carbon Azipull 65C pods. This propulsion system optimises the stern tunnel thrusters, resulting in an improvement in propulsion efficiency of the pod drives.

The exterior design is by Stefano Righini who has given the tri-deck yacht its sporty appearance. Redman Whitely Dixon has then designed the interior, which has four suites for eight guests, plus the owners apartments forward on the main deck.

More details will be released during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2015.
