Benetti Sells Second and Third Oasis 40m Superyachts
by Miranda Blazeby
Benetti has sold the second and third hulls in its 40.8 metre Oasis 40 series.
The news comes after the Italian yard announced it had sold the first hull in the series to World Champion offshore powerboat racer Tim Ciasulli in July.
The second hull has been sold to an experienced owner who “fell in love at first sight” with the model. The third meanwhile has been sold to a repeat Azimut|Bennetti owner, who currently owns an Azimut Grande 35 Metri. Both yachts will be delivered in summer 2020.
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.
Benetti chief executive Franco Fusignani said of the sales: “We’re very happy with the success bestowed on Benetti’s shipyards by the new products. It shows the yachting world just how sound and reliable our experience is in the industry, together with our ability to innovate and anticipate our customer’s requirements”
