Ocean Independence is delighted to announce the sale of hull no. 02 of the much anticipated Benetti Motopanfilo 37M model. Ocean Independence represented the buyer, with delivery anticipated for May 2022 to her new owner. Following delivery, the Benetti Motopanfilo 37M will be available for charter exclusively with Ocean Independence. 

Gathering inspiration from the iconic Benetti navettas of the sixties, the 36.8m (120'9") Motopanfilo 37M has a contemporary, stylish and ultimately spacious design. Named after the leisure yachts owned by the likes of Prince Rainier and David Bowie in their day, the desirability factor is synonymous with the stylish luxury they convey. The lines of this yacht give a retro nod to Benetti's original features thanks to the sophisticated design from Francesco Struglia, while her imaginative interior displays a fresh creative from Lazzarini Pickering Architetti. Ensuring a degree of elegant nostalgia has been retained, the main focus is to fully emphasize her superb interior volume and flexible spaces. 

The Motopanfilo's clean cut lines offer a simplistically chic exterior using tapered forms, with Struglia, in collaboration with Benetti, engaging a shell concept to create the desired length and volume. A standout feature is the smooth 1960's clamshell silhouette of the cool beach club zone, employing modern tech for access with an integrated stern swim platform-come-terrace. In the same vein, the seemingly floating upper level observation deck above the hard top delivers a private hideaway to soak up seclusion and sensational vistas. 

Emulating the concept of a whale skeleton, Lazzarini Pickering Architetti have created a modern, curved interior framework, and exterior deck design, whereby structural beams serve to maximise window space, allowing light and scenic views to flood in, while mirrored surfaces further accentuate the spacious feel. Wooden bulkheads have been replaced by glass and the unique staterooms hug the curves of the hull, clearly defined by the overall shape and not straight walls. 

Overall the sophisticated and timeless Motopanfilo 37M is a triumph of design, where subtle elements of the past are incorporated within a thoroughly innovative yacht. 

Lukas Stratmann commented "For me, the Benetti Motopanfilo 37M is the perfection of simplicity, bringing iconic elements of a classic sixties heritage combined with decidedly twenty-first century thinking."

Congratulations to all parties.
