The tri-deck superyacht has exteriors by Stefano Righini, and includes a sun deck which the shipyard has coined the yacht’s hallmark feature. With its carbon fibre roll bar, the upper section of the superstructure and hard top, the yacht boats a lightweight structure and improved stability. The sun deck offers two access points - one internal and one external - providing maximum privacy for owners and guests.
The yacht’s upper deck is host to a sky lounge, equipped with a Turkish bath and skylight.
Contrasting colours and shadows, as well as walls of different thicknesses, give the interior an unusual 3D effect, accentuated further by the large amounts of glazing connecting the interior and exterior spaces. The shipyard has chosen the 3D effect with a view to offering owners an interactive background the accommodates a wide range of decor options and customisation opportunities.
On her main deck, where the dining area and salon would normally be separated, the two have been integrated creating a single open space including a lounge and bar area. The exterior washboard has also been lowered to match the glass window height, creating the illusion of no barrier between the interior and water beyond.
The yacht can accommodate up to 12 guests in four VIP cabins on the lower deck and an owner’s cabin on the main deck, while the crew dinette is located on the main deck rather than the lower deck as is commonly the case.
My Paradis’ engine room is equipped with a new hybrid system that allows the crew to navigate, as well as the traditional main engines and two 35kW electric motors, connected to the inverters of the main diesel-electric propulsion. The electric motors are powered by generators allowing navigation up to six knots. All yachts in the Benetti Class range also come with a CMC Marine electrical fin stabiliser.
My Paradis will make her world debut at the 2014 Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
