Benetti Sells Fourth and Fifth Oasis 40M Superyachts
by Miranda Blazeby
Italian yard Benetti has announced the sales of the fourth and fifth hulls in its Oasis 40M series.
The sales are two of five new contracts announced by the builder, which include the second 50 metre B.Now, the second hull in the Diamond 145 series and the tenth hull in the Fast 125 series.
The news comes after the yard announced it had sold the second and third 40.8 metre Oasis 40M units in September this year. The first yacht in the series began outfitting at the Livorno based yard in August.
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.
Key features include wide spaces, high ceilings and extensive glazed surfaces. At the stern, two platforms fold out to extend the beach club, which centres around an infinity pool.
Accommodation for up to ten guests is split between five staterooms, including a main deck master suite, two VIP doubles and two twin cabins, all with en suite bathroom facilities. Meanwhile, the crew quarters are suitable for a staff of up to nine people.
The yacht’s showpiece is a spacious beach club, complete with fold-out bulwarks and a central infinity pool. Other key features include an al fresco dining area on the bridge deck aft, a 6.25 metre tender garage, and a superyacht sundeck shaded by a large hardtop.
