The semi-custom yacht Benetti Veloce 140 was designed by Stefano Righini (exterior design and concept), Pierluigi Ausonio together with the Research and Development Center of the Azimut|Benetti Group (both naval architecture). The yacht has a top speed of over 20 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots. The hull is called D2P (Displacement to Planing) for higher speeds if needed but also the comfort of the displacement hull at cruising speed.
The Cheers 46 hull, first built for a Brazilian yacht owner and a repeat client of the Azimut|Benetti Group, is characterized by highly customized interiors, designed by Redman Whitely Dixon (RWD) in collaboration with the owner’s designer.
The interior and exterior decor were entrusted to the “Paulista” architect Joao Armentano. The woods used mainly include light gray TAY and slate gray TABU for the flooring. The decorative elements are in a silver lacquer finish and the ceilings in Alcantara and a white lacquer finish. All stainless steel features come with a satin finish. The interior furnishings are by Minotti, the lamps by Flos and the taps and fittings by Gessi.
As regards the technological heart of Cheers 46, it is worth noting the use of the largest engine ever mounted at the Viareggio Benetti shipyard: two MTU 12V 4000 M93L 3500 hp engines. The Benetti Veloce 140 is also equipped with a system of CMC Marine electrical fin stabilizers.
The large Sun Deck covers more than 77 square meters on the highest “bridge” of the new Benetti yacht. Here, too, class and functionality blend seamlessly. This large terrace overlooking the sea is dominated by a central pool facing the most spectacular living area of the Cheers 46: an extended section on the right, served by a long linear bar on the left. Another feature of this bridge is the seating area in the bow, with a frontal sea view.
This bridge is marked by modularity, as it was not designed with the traditional “fixed” furniture. Everything can be removed or moved with ease, to obtain a large circular.
The Benetti Veloce 140 CHEERS 46 is currently for sale for 14,450,000 USD.
