Benetti has revealed photos and details of the Oasis 34M, which debuted at last year’s Cannes Yachting Festival and is the second model in the line, reuniting the studios who designed the hugely popular Oasis 40M.
British studio RWD again handled the exterior styling, which includes an almost vertical bow and stylistic hallmarks borrowed from car design, such as the silver-coloured trim that helps accentuate the taut lines.
New York-based architects Bonetti/Kozerski was responsible for interior design, bringing the warmth and naturalness of outdoor teak indoors, to create a relaxing setting dominated by bleached Canaletto walnut. The layout is open and flowing, while the custom-designed furnishings take their inspiration from ocean waves and are joined by selected iconic pieces from top Italian design brands.
The 113ft fibreglass superyacht has a 25ft beam and comprises a lower deck, main deck, upper deck and sun deck, with accommodation for 10 guests in five cabins and seven crew. Oasis 34M has a top speed of 16 knots and a range of 2,700nm at 10 knots, enough to complete a transatlantic crossing.
The yacht’s signature is the Oasis Deck, which includes the pieds dans l’eau swim platform and the open aft cockpit set five steps up. The Oasis Deck include the key features that have made the concept such a success on the Oasis 40M including the central outdoor infinity pool, surrounded on three sides by sunpads.
Two drop-down bulwarks expand the size of the deck, establishing closer contact with the water at the same time as providing protection from the waves, while increasing the views of the water. The cockpit also includes a covered area, with facing sofas on each side, while guests have a clear view of the Oasis Deck from the main-deck interior, which starts with a dining area followed by a lounge.
The master suite forward on the main deck is “designed as an intimate cocoon-like space”, according to Benetti, while the lower deck includes four guest cabins and the crew quarters forward.
The upper deck has a half-covered open aft deck, an indoor lounge, wheelhouse and a foredeck with sofa and sunpads. The sun deck has a central dining table, long bar, forward sunpads, and aft lounging area.
The parquet on the main and upper decks is coordinated with the teak used outdoors, while the ivory-coloured leather decorating the ceilings complements the bleached walnut panels with a ribbed design on the vertical surfaces.
“Oasis 34M is the right answer for active, curious owners who want a dynamic, less formal lifestyle on board and are always on the lookout for an exciting adventure. Oasis 34M is an invitation to climb aboard and set sail towards the unique experience of an exclusive encounter with mother nature,” Benetti stated.
“This highly innovative concept satisfies all the needs of contemporary owners who today, more than ever, choose to return to a life lived with emotion and engagement in close contact with the water More than just a boat, Oasis 34M is a whole lifestyle.”
