Not just another classic

This new 120 footer incorporates many of the developments available on the Benetti Classic line over the years, the philosophy being to bring to the market a larger yacht with similar accommodations and services as its 116 foot predecessor in more space and with one significant advantage – the Classic 120 conforms to the latest MCA safety rules. Different layout options are available for the owner to build the yacht that best suits his life styles. This flexibility becomes a great advantage for those owners who want the dependency of a series yacht but would also like a customized feel – the Classic 37 with its two layout varieties on the lower and main decks plus the three varieties on the top deck allow for just that.

Inside the upper deck saloon, the ambiance is normally informal, with its large bar, sofas, armchairs and satin paneling. Combined with the outside deck, it is a superb place to relax or entertain. Of course, the large windows allow a great view of the ocean. A raised sunbathing area surrounds the ample Jacuzzi. The cockpit, forward of the upper deck saloon, has leather panel walls and state of the art navigational equipment, which is, in many cases, unique to Benetti. Stairs on the starboard side lead down to the sundeck with teak flooring. There is a sofa, coffee table, and a couple of sun-loungers under the radar arch for informal gathering or as an extension to the main saloon.



The forward section of the main deck opens to store the rescue tender, which is maneuvered by a carbon fiber crane. The new design includes a garage door and fold down swim platform arrangement, giving a much-improved space for water sports and an ample boarding area. The spacious garage stores a 20-foot tender and 2 jet skis.

From the main deck, one walks into a magnificently spacious and elegant living room and a dining area with seating for up to 10 guests. The interior features high gloss cherry wood, which has become synonymous with the Classic, but it’s also possible to choose from a variety of other woods such as pear and maple. As standard, the saloon includes a variety of sofas and armchairs, and a coffee table with a marble top. As part of a state of the art entertainment center is a 42” plasma pop up television. Portside and forward, the full sized kitchen is equipped with 2 fridges and 2 freezers, a dishwasher, a stove and microwave – all to create the most meticulous recipes.




A starboard corridor on the main deck leads to the powder room and then to the owner’s suite, which includes an office and a dressing room. The roomy owner’s suite takes advantage of the full beam. A double marble bathroom is positioned aft of the cabin, and the king size bed is forward, facing 4 large windows with 180° view. The lower deck is for the guests, with 1 or 2 VIP cabins and, depending on the choice of layout, two twin guest cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms.

The same designers and naval engineers of the Benetti Classic line sat together to conceive this magnificent composite yacht – the Classic 37 – a true answer to the market’s latest demands.
