Second 40.8m Benetti Oasis superyacht Joy launched

1 April 2021By Miranda Blazeby

The second superyacht in Benetti’s Oasis 40.8 metre superyacht series has hit the water.

Now named Joy, the yacht was launched on March 31 from the builder’s Livorno-based yard. It follows the delivery of the first yacht in the series, Rebeca.

Designed by British studio RWD in collaboration with Benetti, the Oasis 40 superyacht has a beam of 8.5 metres, draft of 2.14 metres and a 385GT interior designed by New York firm Bonetti/ Kozerski Architecture.

Sold to a new Benetti owner who “fell in love at first sight” with the model, Joy features a number of custom features, including an advanced wi-fi remote control system, which allows the boat to be moored from the stern area without the need to be in the wheelhouse.

Elsewhere, the yacht features a vertical bow, full-height glazing in the wheelhouse and automotive inspired design features, including silver paint around the perimeter of the windows. The beach club is described as the “focal point for life on board” and can be used for pre-dinner aperitifs or as an open-air cinema, as specified by the owner. Once the two wings are opened out, the beach area expands to 90 square metres with a width of 11 metres.

Accommodation is for a total of 10 guests and four cabins for seven crew members, including the captain.
