Project: Benetti B.Yond Limited Edition 40 m

Celebrating 150 yeas, for 2023 Benetti is presenting a long list of projects, including of which is the B.Yond Limited Edition, a forty meter four deck explorer super yacht available to purchase for one year, starting the past July and will end on the same month in 2024.  The B.Yond Limited Edition, is based on the B.Yond 37M which debuted in 2022, with a hull extended by three meters in length, creating additional exterior spaces and volumes, especially in the upper deck.  Thanks to the extended hull the B.Yond Limited Edition will feature a stern which gets more generous dimensions and will include a sunbathing spot and a scenic infinity pool with a glass bottom.  The B.Yond Limited Edition will also be available in an exclusive elegant metallic colour called Vulcan Grey, embellished with a distinctive black shield, with a refined golden waterline gracing the yacht from stern to bow, with a gilded backlit Benetti logo adorning the sides of the Upper Deck.  The B.Yond Limited Edition just as the three meters smaller sister will offer five double guests cabins on the main deck, including an owners stateroom located forward.  The lower deck will feature five crew cabins for eight to ten crew including a large captains cabin located at midships.  In between the crew quarters is the large galley serving all the yacht and a C-shaped for the crew.  Also in the lower deck is a gym room.  Fair to advice the B.Yond Limited Edition’s layout, is supported by a host of pre-engineered solutions that are one of this series’ strengths, makes it possible to redefine the existing spaces and adapt them as alternative hospitality areas to suit the owner and guests’ specific needs.  The B.Yond Limited Edition also offers as an option the E-Mode Hybrid propulsion system, developed in partnership with Siemens Energy, which optimizes on-board energy consumption, making it the most sustainable in its segment. This innovative system offers four different operating modes, including Full Electric. This zero-emission cruising option allows the B.Yond Limited Edition to enter marine protected areas typically off-limits to motor yachts with diesel engines, offering a unique opportunity to explore ecologically sensitive areas while respecting the environment. Based on an average annual use of 1,000 hours, 400 underway and the rest at anchor fuel consumption and CO2 can be reduced by up to 24%, and NOx by a maximum of 85%.  The B.Yond Limited Edition has a range of 8,200 miles at nine knots in Eco Transfer mode, almost double the range of similarly sized explorer super yacht with the two generators off and only one internal combustion propulsion engine in operation.  As the smaller 37 meter the forty meter B.Yond Limited Edition is designed by Stefano Righini, what is the designers last project before leaving for the better World in 2021, with naval architecture for the full displacement hull by Pierluigi Ausonio.
