We were very lucky to be able to ‘jump’ on board before the official presentation of the Benetti Oasis 40m, and see that magnificent creation finally in the water

The wordplay with the phrase ‘the game-changer’ properly describes our opinion about the new Benetti Oasis. As the first yacht of the stunning new 40 meter series, she is going to turn many heads because this yachts simply has so many cool features (like the unmistakable design of the stern) put in the right place.

Oasis 40M is a giant step forward

Benetti is well known for their serial production of semi-custom yachts with sizes up to 45 meters, but this is simply a giant step forward for the Italian builder and this yacht deserves the throne even on the first sight. Invisible decades of experience in developing yachts of similar sizes are sublimed in the Oasis, mixed with fresh and very well done new design features.

We were very lucky to be able to ‘jump’ on board before the official presentation of the yacht, and see that magnificent creation finally in the water. The real review of the Benetti Oasis will follow in our magazine and this is just a quick sketch of what we saw even before she was delivered to her owner. Her modern silhouette is ‘upgraded’ with amazing stern dominated by infinity pool (we counted that it could fit ten guests) and openable sides – creating a vast beach club simply ideal for spending time ‘millimetres’ from the sea.

What we see as the only real downside of this model is that it is so good that other Benetti yachts could see a stall in the demand, while Oasis will be steaming ahead

The ‘transformer’ on the platform can also carry extra jet ski, be used as a ‘stairway to swimming’ or as a wide gangway when the yacht is moored ‘stern to’. The touch of designers from British studio RWD responsible for the exteriors can be seen on every step further, and for us, a very recognizable signature is the famous Benetti fin made of glass at the end of the side corridors.

Atmosphere of modern villa

This design has a perfect match with interior designers, Benetti chose US-based designers Bonetti/Kozerski who created the atmosphere of a modern villa in the interior that complements with a fresh exterior look. This is very well understood at the entrance to the teak covered main salon through ‘disappearing’ around the door and this feeling is present through the whole yacht which enjoys generous master cabin on the main deck and four cabins on the lower deck. There are many more features like an extra jacuzzi on the sundeck or big storage for water toys in the bow which we will describe when we run a proper review.

What we have also found out is that from engineering and seaworthiness point of view Captain is extremely pleased, with consumption at 12 knots in very low numbers (we did get it but we wait for official confirmation). What we see as the only real downside of this model is that it is so good that other Benetti yachts could see a stall in the demand, while Oasis will be steaming ahead. With satisfied builder and clients whose number is not less than eleven, just days after the presentation of the first yacht. Maybe that speaks the best about this ‘game-changer’.
