Benetti and RWD reveal Oasis 135 yacht concept
by Chris Jefferies
Very few details are available about this mysterious new model, which was developed in collaboration with British design studio RWD. However, the name hints at an overall length of around 41 metres and the renderings below show a spacious superyacht beach club, complete with fold-out bulwarks and a central spa pool.
Other key features include an al fresco dining area on the bridge deck aft and a superyacht sundeck shaded by a large hardtop.
In a statement, the yard added: “Oasis 135 is the evolution of Benetti DNA — a displacement yacht and a new concept of using the spaces and experiencing new lifestyle on board. The project reinterprets the use of internal and external spaces in a more contemporary forward looking way, starting from the idea to reconnect the owner with the sea in a very informal use of the boat.”
This is the latest project to spring from Benetti’s partnership with RWD, which has already produced the BNow range of superyacht concepts, measuring 48 metres, 55 metres, 63 metres and 68 metres.
Roberto Corno, worldwide sales director at Benetti, explained that the decision to showcase the Oasis 135 at the Singapore Yacht Show reflects the yard’s growing influence in the area.
“Singapore Yacht Show is a must-go international show for Benetti, which further reflects Asia’s importance in Benetti’s success and development globally,” he said. “We keep investing in Asia with talent and resources to solidify our leading position.”
Recent Benetti superyachts sold to Asian clients include the fourth Mediterraneo 116 yacht, which is due for delivery next year.
