INSPIRATION is a 38-metre (125ft) high-volume tri-deck yacht from Benetti, delivered in 2017. Constructed to RINA classification and MCA compliant, she has a full displacement fibreglass hull with a bulbous bow and lightweight carbon fibre composite superstructure. Her contemporary-styled exterior is drawn by Stefano Righini and her clean, crisp interior design is by Redman Whiteley Dixon.
Outside spaces on board include a spacious sundeck with a retractable hardtop bimini; a large Portuguese bridge on the forward coachroof with a large jacuzzi pool, two double sunpads and plenty of seats around twin tables; and a partially shaded upper aft deck set up for dining with ample space for open-air lounge furniture astern. The main deck aft cockpit is a fully shaded lounge with built-in banquettes. Covered companionways run forward to amidships on the main deck and steps lead down from the aft cockpit on both sides of the transom to the beach club in her stern.
Her sundeck has three high chairs up front with a spectacular view, a comfortable lounge opposite a well-equipped bar/grill under the convertible hardtop and a large, full-beam expanse of open-air deck astern.
Her interior volume adds up to 320GT, arranged on three main levels, with accommodation for up to 10 guests in five cabins, plus separate quarters on the lower deck for eight crew. Aft of the bridge on the upper deck there’s a dedicated gym and a captain’s cabin as well as a large, full-beam skylounge with a bar, sofas and armchairs, and wide-opening doors to the upper aft deck. One level down, the main deck saloon is an elegant, open plan space with a lounge aft and formal dining area forward. The yacht’s main galley and pantry are amidships, to port.
The main foyer leads forward on the starboard side to the full-beam master suite, which has its own entrance lobby, walk-in closets, his-and-hers bathrooms with bathtub and shower, and pop-out terraces on both sides. The other four guest cabins – three doubles and a twin – are amidships on the lower deck.
She carries her main tender and two jet skis in a side-launching garage on the lower deck, which provides a buffer between the guest cabins and engine room.
Powered by twin MTU V16 M94 diesels with a combined output of 5,200hp, she cruises at 17.5kts with a maximum range (at long-distance passage speed) of 1,750nm and a top speed of 22kts.
