Superyacht Ocean Paradise launched by Benetti

25 March 2013By Raphael Montigneaux

March is a busy month for Benetti. Just a few days after the launch of Luna, the famous Italian yard announces the launch of the superyacht Ocean Paradise (hull FB263).

Ocean Paradise is a 55-metre full-custom superyacht built in steel and aluminium. Designed by the in-house team, she's characterised by very large openings, especially on the main deck.

The spacious and bright interior, created by the in-house designer Mauro Izzo, boasts an interior where Zen gardens stylishly mix with carbon-fibre. She accommodates 12 guests in six cabins, including a full-beam master suite on the main deck with a private balcony.

Ocean Paradise is powered by twin 1,765kW Caterpillar engines giving a top speed of 17 knots and a cruising speed of 15.5 knots.

Special features include a panoramic sundeck with an oversized pool, indoor/outdoor gym, dance floor and exterior TV built in to the bar. The transom reveals 25msq dedicated to a beach club (tenders and toys being stored in a side garage and on the foredeck).

As announced by Y.CO in mid-Febrary, Ocean Paradise will be displayed at the upcoming MYBA charter show in Genoa.
