Benetti Oasis 40m
Imagine an Italian villa on the open ocean. That’s almost what it feels like onboard the Oasis 40m, a yacht designed with open spaces and life in the sun in mind. The entire stern has been made into a multi-level, open-air lounge that offers luxurious outdoor spaces from the top to the steps leading to the water.
With exterior design by acclaimed English firm RWD and interior design by New York’s Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture, it’s a mixture of English elegance and Italian style throughout. It accommodates 10 guests in five cabins, plus nine crew members in five crew cabins.
Relax in the spa after a vigorous swim in the 12-meter main-deck pool – or after some ocean exploration, thanks to her diving facilities.
Interior design maestro Laura Sessa gives the yacht its stylishly contemporary look, while legendary London design firm Harrison Eidsgaard is responsible for the stylish lines of the steel-hull beauty with a top speed of 18.5 kts.
Ten staterooms accommodate up to 12 guests. And don’t worry – she’s got a helipad.
