The new 108-foot Benetti motor yacht, My Paradis will make its debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival, 9-14 September 2014.

The first of three 108-foot Tradition Supremes, the new entry level tri-deck in the Benetti Class Range Displacement line, My Paradis has been equipped with a new hybrid system that will allow to navigate, as well as with the traditional main engines, also using two 35 kW electric motors.

With the launching of My Paradis, Benetti unveils the new Tradition Supreme 108', part of the Benetti Class Range Displacement line of composite yachts from 93'-145'. In doing so, Benetti reinforces its leadership position, with the new Tradition Supreme 108' featuring extremely innovative stylistic and technical elements.

With exteriors by Stefano Righini, the vessel includes three decks and a sun deck. The sun deck is this boat's hallmark feature. Its carbon fibre roll bar, upper section of the superstructure and hard top have been selected to ensure a lightweight structure with enhanced stability.

The sun deck is also noteworthy for its circulation. There are two access points, an internal and external one, which provide maximum privacy for the Owner and guests. Indeed, the entire sun deck has been made use of. In addition to the stunning Jacuzzi and elegant dining table for 10 in the centre, there is also comfortable sunpad seating towards the stern and a sofa with forward facing storage next to the exterior piloting station.

On the upper deck, there is a skylounge with windows on three sides and a sliding door leading out to the exterior salon for amazing views. It is also equipped with a spectacular Turkish bath complete with skylight so you can lie back and relax, gazing up at the sky.


The interiors accentuate the sense of space and light using contrasting colours and shadows. The walls are clad with different thickness decking arranged in a random pattern. This makes for a very unusual 3D effect with a play of light and shadow, further accentuated by the large amounts of glazing connecting the interior and exterior spaces. The light-drenched quality of the interiors is also enhanced by the pairing of light oak with darker wood that lets the natural light reflect off the different angled surfaces.

The light design also includes strategically located LEDs to recreate the same effect after daylight hours.

The decision to use 3D dynamic walls rather than smooth ones provides a kind of interactive background that actually accommodates a wide range of décor options, offering ample customisation opportunities.

On the Tradition Supreme 108' the Owner can choose from a wide array of furnishing options, depending on their personal style and brand preferences.

As a case in point, the main deck of My Paradis has a very interesting custom layout. The area traditionally devoted to the dining area has been integrated with the salon, creating a single open space that includes a lounge and bar area. The room is filled with natural light and enjoys uninterrupted and breathtaking water views thanks to its full-height windows. The designers also took a very innovative approach and lowered the exterior washboard to match the glass height, virtually eliminating any visual barrier between the interiors and the water beyond. The washboard is also 'cut back' at the full-height window in the Owner’s cabin, allowing natural light to fill the suite to great effect.


Per Owner request, the crew dinette on My Paradis is located on the main deck instead of the lower deck; in its place is a large refrigeration unit.

The yacht can accommodate up to 12 guests. There are four VIP cabins on the lower deck. The -deOwner's apartment is on the main deck at full beam. There is a sense of drama in the bathrooms, where the same 'interactive' finishes have been used, this time in the 100% mosaic showers. Here too there is a play of uneven surfaces, again reinforced by strategically placed LEDs.

Important innovations in the engine room too: in accordance with the emerging trends in the market, the yacht has been equipped with a new hybrid system that will allow you to navigate, as well as the traditional main engines, also using two 35 kW electric motors connected directly to the regulators / inverters of the main diesel-electric propulsion.

The electric motors are powered directly by generators allowing to navigate up to a speed of about 6 knots. Onboard generators are used as the only source of propulsion and power for various devices. This configuration will allow to minimize noise and vibration while maximizing comfort.

The electric one is also an auxiliary propulsion in support of the main motor. Just to give an example, the efficiency guaranteed by a low power motor (35 kW) at low speed (6/7 nodes), typical in night transfers, is certainly better than a more powerful engine which can not be used too long in this mode.

To maximise onboard comfort and reduce energy use, the boatyard has equipped My Paradis as well as all Benetti Class models with a CMC Marine electrical fin stabiliser. Compared to traditional systems, the electrical pin stabilisers ensure reduced noise, increased functionality, reduced electricity usage, and ease of maintenance.
