B.YOND is a new generation of Expedition designed in the Benetti tradition and based on what owners want. Intelligent solutions give as much space as possible to the owner, guests, crew and onboard services, ensuring comfortable, leisurely cruises with reduced environmental impact thanks to the new E-Mode propulsion system developed by Siemens for the shipyard.
The first model is B.Yond 37M, which has steel hull and aluminium superstructure, a beam of 8.6 meters and enclosed volumes similar to a 50-meter megayacht of almost 500 tonnes. The Main Deck is dedicated to cabins for the owner and guests, while the living area starts on the Upper Deck. The Lower Deck, on the other hand, is reserved exclusively for the crew and captain.
Reduced environmental impact
The E-Mode powered by Siemens, specially designed for the Azimut|Benetti Group, comes from the idea to offer a hybrid propulsion simple to use, leading of an effective reduction of the consumption during the whole life cycle of the yacht.
The diesel-electric propulsion system from Siemens, SISHIP EcoProp, allows to operate in four different configurations: Enhanced Comfort, ideal for night and coastal cruising with no emissions; Eco Cruise/hotel mode, for zero-emissions while cruising or at anchor; Extended Range, an option useful on very long trips to reduce consumption; Eco Transfer, for navigation with only one engine driving both shafts to reduce engine hours and improve performance. It allows a reduction of the engine hours and an improved performance.
An open design for better views
The Benetti’s yacht allows a direct access from the dock to a little middle deck that is the hallway where a huge stair leads to the stern terrace on the Upper Deck. The living area develops on this deck, from stern to bow, and ensures that the horizon is never out of sight.
The Wheel Deck contains a lounge with sliding glass side screens to protect against gusts of wind. Aft, a second hydromassage tub dominates the outdoor area, while the interior spaces in the bow include the helm station and a radio room that can also be used at night by the captain to rest in, when the yacht is at anchor. The Sun Deck consists of a dining area with pantry and an open air table sheltered by a hard top, plus a roomy sunbathing area.
B.Yond 37M is designed for long distance cruises and has a hull that dominates the waves. More storage space than usual is provided, and the water tanks are larger, for longer cruises without the need to land. In addition, fuel and water tank capable of storing respectively 70,000 and 6,000 litres. Range at cruising speed is in excess of 5,000 nm.
