The five musts of the Benetti Oasis Deck that redefine the super yacht
Benetti Oasis Deck is the new solution based on the success of the Oasis 40M, and now present on the new models, Oasis 34M, B.Now 50M and 66M,with an original and unique mix of 5 essential characteristics
Benetti Oasis Deck redefines the super yacht with three models and five essential characteristics. This is the latest release by Benetti for all those super yacht owners who want to spend long periods on board in close contact with the sea, reiterating the brand’s role as forerunner and leader in the field of yacht design.
THE FIVE CHARACTERISTICS OF OASIS DECK
There are five characteristics that distinguish the new Oasis Deck super yachts by Benetti.
The first are the opening wings, meaning the collapsible gunwales that open up more available space in contact with the water while protecting it from the waves. Icon of the Oasis 40M, is also the magnificent integrated pool, with a open area near the sea and, inside, a communal area for socialising. The third characteristic is the 270 degree open view towards the stern, including from the living area. Passengers can also enjoy the deck at any time of the day, thanks to the right mix of sun and shade. Lastly, the Social Design, which distinguishes the entire deck making it a large social area, from the main living space to the water.
Based on an original design inspiration in 2017, in September, Benetti presented a 40 metre yacht dedicated to the next generation of yacht owners.
Having recognised the early signs of a new trend, spearheaded by a new kind of super yacht owner, desiring a more sociable lifestyle, more informal and in closer contact with the water, Benetti wanted to create something that went beyond the traditional beach area, which, in general, tends to be interrupted by the gunwales and deckheads, thereby creating the perfect yacht to enjoy in roads surrounded by the sea and environment.
Of the six well-known design studios who presented their ideas in 2017, it was the English company, RWD who met and respected Benetti’s vision, and even developed it further. The concept of the Oasis 40M therefore introduces a revolutionary combination of five characteristics on the stern deck, making the terms “beach club” and “beach area” obsolete.
And so the new Oasis Deck was born. Even owners of the biggest yachts are now showing their enthusiasm for the Oasis concept, confirming that new-found ties to the sea and the lifestyle stemming from it are increasingly fundamental values when looking for the ideal yacht. Benetti and RWD have created the archetype of Oasis Life, which is spreading rapidly and being recognised and adopted throughout the industry.
In the wake of the success of the Oasis 40M, Benetti went straight back to work with RWD, to create a “little sister” and help expand the Oasis family.
The Oasis 34M, smaller and with a different engineering package, offers the same five characteristics of the Oasis Deck, as well as keeping the garage for the tender on the side of the boat. The New York based studio, Bonetti/Kozerski who created the interiors for the 40M, decided to change the design of the 34M by giving the interior a more sporty and young feel, with a fresh look and large open spaces.
Owners can also choose a less traditional layout with a more formal dining area in the Skylounge on the Upper Deck and less styled Main Deck, decorated with sofas, a TV area and a bar to the bow. Transposing the five characteristics of the Oasis Deck onto a 34M was a real challenge in design; while working on a 50M created a true space for design experimentation.
The B.NOW 50M can now be integrated with the Oasis Deck, which takes full advantage of the larger hull. This solution can be adapted perfectly to the 50M, where some new functions were further developed: a large American bar in the shade and a wellness area for exercising with a spa on the Lower Deck, which can also be used as an adventure room, with trampolines, kayaks and other equipment.
B.NOW 66M OASIS
The new concept of an oasis in the middle of the sea by Benetti also perfectly adapts to the new B.NOW 66M Oasis, the flagship of the Oasis family.
From the moment you are on board the yacht and begin walking on the deck you feel completely surrounded by this space, including an enormous pool, large sun lounging areas, social areas, the raised terrace, dining room and bar outside, and the main living area with the cocktail bar on the inside. Nearly 50% of the main deck is dedicated to the Oasis Life.
“Over these last few months – explains the CEO of the Azimut Benetti Group, Marco Valle – our models of the Oasis Deck have become a point of reference, meeting the needs of an ever growing segment. The concept is so strong and innovative that super yacht owners are literally fascinated.”
“Up until now – adds Valle – we have already sold 14 Oasis 40M, three Oasis 34M, even before their official presentation, and six B.Now 50M with the Oasis Deck. The Oasis Life philosophy goes well beyond the product range, and has been adopted by the entire industry. The secret is to have anticipated the trend and to have interpreted the most intimate needs of yacht owners, finding the perfect partner for manufacturing and designs, thanks to close and successful partnerships. It is easy to imagine a future where, for a growing number of super yacht owners, the essential spaces on board will become the Sun Deck, Upper Deck, Bridge Deck and the Oasis Deck”.
