Benetti presented a preview of the shipyard’s new products: Oasis 135’, Diamond 145’ and 4 BNow models,
Oasis 135’: a new lifestyle balanced between sport and relaxation
The Oasis 135’ is a yacht designed by RWD based on a new concept that offers a contemporary take on the use of indoor and outdoor spaces, for an owner in search of a distinctly informal relationship with the sea.
Created to satisfy the needs of an active and sophisticated owner who wants to live his life at sea to the full and across the board, and who has a lifestyle focused on casual elegance, Oasis 135’ features high ceilings, the unusual layout of the onboard spaces, and the extensive use of natural light confirm and underscore the desire to enter into a symbiotic relationship with the outside world.
Cruising speed stands at 14.5 knots, with a top speed of 15 knots, and the yacht has a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 11 knots.
Diamond 145’. Power and balance
The Diamond 145’ is the flagship of the Class product line fleet with a sophisticated design that represents the ultimate expression of displacement models in the Classic category. This 44-meter displacement yacht draws on the core features of the Benetti Displacement Class across its entire history.
The elegant design suggests the proportions and details of a large yacht and conveys a feeling of sturdiness and power. The discreet but tangible sense of refinement will strike a chord with owners who love to combine glamour with credible practicality.
Access to the Main Deck is by two wide stairways in the stern, which are also one of the yacht’s architectural highlights. The main cockpit welcomes guests in a wide and bright setting, and leads seamlessly to the immense, fully glazed main lounge. The full-beam master cabin in the bow has a roomy wardrobe, a full-beam bathroom and a study or office. The Upper Deck features a big outdoor area in the stern with access to the lounge and the bow area is the largeston the market, covering 70 square meters and featuring a remarkable custom spa pool.
The two 1,400 hp Man engines will drive the Diamond 145’ to a top speed of 15 knots and at a speed of 11 knots the yacht will have a range of 3,800 nautical miles.
BNow: maximum comfort with short delivery times.
The 4 BNow models are Custom yachts, again designed in collaboration with RWD, created to offer a modern onboard lifestyle by connecting indoor and outdoor spaces.
Featuring streamlined exterior lines and a vertical bow, the yachts in this product family offer well-being and comfort accompanied by much shorter delivery times. In response to the original brief “to create an innovative well-being concept for the maximum comfort, light and use of spaces.”
RWD have developed a seamless indoor/outdoor living area with panoramic Pool Lounge as an extension of the aft deck and Beach Club. All the layouts feature a new and revolutionary concept of onboard lifestyle, because they make innovative use of the spaces from day to night.
With these new products, Benetti intends to introduce new elements of style while remaining faithful to the fundamental principles that underpin its long history and tradition.
