The Oasis 34M is designed for a 'new generation of yacht owners' who want to spend more time out on the water.
Benetti has revealed new imagery and further details of the Oasis 34M superyacht, designed for adventurous owners to explore far-flung destinations without sacrificing luxury.
Benetti says the yacht fits a brief for owners in search of a dynamic, less formal lifestyle and a ‘thrilling experience on the water’.
The Oasis 34M follows in the footsteps of its big sibling, the Oasis 40M — the first in the Oasis series. Italian luxury boatbuilder Benetti says the Oasis range ‘encapsulates all the assets that have helped write the history of the Benetti brand: a strong tradition kept constantly up to date, investment in research and development, new style codes, quality and reliability’.
The exterior styling on Oasis 34M is again by British design studio RWD, a familiar name in international yacht design circles. And, once again, the interior design is by architects Bonetti/Kozerski, the prominent New York-based firm that has introduced influences on board derived from the architecture of sophisticated residential projects, featuring style solutions made famous by fine buildings such as the Pace Gallery in Manhattan and elegant private homes, as well as drawing on high-profile collaborations with starchitects of the calibre of Peter Marino.
Bonetti/Kozerski have harmonised the spaces on board Oasis 34M, achieving a balance between interiors and exteriors and bringing the warmth and naturalness of outdoor teak indoors to create a calm and relaxing setting dominated by bleached Canaletto walnut.
Made of fibreglass, the yacht has three decks plus a generous sun deck. The silhouette features a vertical bow, from which sleek, modern and elegant lines descend in a gentle gradient to water level and form a big swim platform. For this sleek design, with its water-hugging stern, RWD has also drawn on stylistic hallmarks borrowed from car design, such as the silver-coloured trim that helps accentuate the taut lines.
The cornerstone on which Benetti says the appeal of Oasis 34M is built is the range’s signature Oasis Deck beach club. Two extending wings increase the size of the deck, establishing closer contact with the water at the same time as providing protection from the waves, while the infinity pool is incorporated in a prominent position on the deck. Owners and guests can enjoy an uninterrupted 270-degree view towards the Oasis Deck, including from the lounge on the main deck.
The open, flowing design includes details such as parquet on the main and upper decks, coordinated with the teak used outdoors. There’s ivory-coloured leather decorating the ceilings to complement bleached walnut panels with a ribbed design on the vertical surfaces. Together they form a palette of understated colours that are light and bright but create a warm and relaxing atmosphere. This theme is also a powerful influence on the master suite, designed as an intimate ‘cocoon-like’ space.
With hull efficiency enhanced by the vertical bow, Oasis 34M has a top speed of 16 knots and, at an average cruising speed of 10 knots, a range of 2,700 nautical miles, or more than enough to complete a transatlantic crossing.
