Italian luxury yacht builder Benetti announced the latest flagship in the company’s class product line – the Diamond 145’.
Measuring 44.1-metres in length, the new superyacht design features an exterior and naval architecture from the studios of Giorgio Cassetta. (A long-time Benetti collaborator and superyacht designer.)
Diamond 145 Superyacht.
Power and balance.?
‘Diamond 145 Superyacht, is the flagship of the Class product line fleet. It is a yacht with a sophisticated design that represents the ultimate expression of displacement models in the Classic category.’
This 44-meter displacement yacht draws on the core features of the Benetti Displacement Class across its entire history.
Expert owners will be struck by a yacht that can be an integral part of their finest moments with unparalleled style, comfort, and safety.
The elegant design suggests the proportions and details of a large yacht and conveys a feeling of sturdiness and power. The discreet but tangible sense of refinement will strike a chord with owners who love to combine glamour with credible practicality.
The seamless design of the huge glazed surfaces accentuates the length of the yacht and its brightly-lit interiors. The exterior styling, which stands out for its remarkable continuity of lines and surfaces, is the work of Giorgio M. Cassetta.
“The Diamond 145’ represents yet another step in the evolution of the Benetti Class Displacement range. The clean, smooth lines embrace the proportions of a big yacht. The high hull sides and extremely long reverse sheer line suggest leisure cruises in complete safety, while the sculpted masses of the superstructure define a refined and dynamic style. The distribution of the settings and layout is based on meticulous optimization of the available space.
My team and I have researched each detail for three years to create a yacht that is both extremely luxurious and immediately practical.
The interior design is based on roomy, welcoming settings. Here the choice of light color shades underscores the wealth of natural light. In the words of the designer, Achille Salvagni.
I want to sculpt space, giving it character, dignity, and strength. I’m looking for curved lines that come together and flow. The interiors of this yacht are timeless because they unite vintage concepts with contemporary ideas. True refinement is cosmopolitan, telling stories and recollecting memories. The settings should, therefore, be interpreted as a story”.
Access to the Main Deck is by two wide stairways in the stern, which are also one of the yacht’s architectural highlights.
The main cockpit welcomes guests in a wide and bright setting. And leads seamlessly to the immense, fully glazed main lounge of the superyacht. The full-beam master cabin in the bow has a roomy wardrobe, a full-beam bathroom, and a study or office. The galley and service areas are laid out to make the best use of the space available. It’s made in such a way as to provide high-level service on board, without encroaching on guests’ privacy.
The Upper Deck features a big outdoor area.
In the stern with access to the lounge, which is dominated by extensive glazed surfaces that cover 80% of the perimeter. The extremely spacious piloting area is positioned next to the captain’s cabin for perfect visibility. The bow area is the largest the market, covering 70 square meters and featuring a remarkable custom spa pool.
The Sun Deck
Over 115 square meters of outdoor space and can be furnished according to the owner’s tastes. All life rafts and all functional features are hidden or integrated with the design to avoid contaminating the purity of the yacht’s contours.
The beach club in the stern, located right above the sea surface, is the most obvious novelty on the yacht, offering an independent, highly flexible and visually striking space.
The night area for guests is on the Lower Deck and is made up of four double cabins, with the option of a fifth on the upper deck. The crew quarters and laundry are fit in the bow area.
The Beach Area and Beach Club can be fully customized and can be enjoyed both at sea and at anchor.
The two 1,400 hp Man engines will drive the Diamond 145’ to a top speed of 15 knots. And if that’s not enough here more for the greedy. At a speed of 11 knots, the yacht will have a range of 3,800 nautical miles.
