With the Tradition Supreme 108, Benetti offers buyers of so-called small megayachts bigger-yacht features. The primary advantage is a trideck configuration, unheard of for a 108’2” (32.98-meter) LOA. The second advantage is the ability to personalize the layouts of each deck, beyond wall coverings and furnishings. The first in the series, My Paradis, makes the most of both.
Most 108-footers rise two decks high. The ability to have a full skylounge aboard surely impressed the owner of My Paradis, the first Benetti Tradition Supreme 108. A bar forward to port makes the room ideal for cocktails. Conversations flow easily from the table and seating arrangements (there are two) and the settee taking up much of the opposite side. The guests and captain can each enjoy some privacy thanks to the helm being down a few steps, not open to this area.
Most of the main deck aboard My Paradis is devoted to the saloon. The large windows combine with light- and dark-stained oak, plus LEDs, for dramatic effect. The drama is even greater where panes of nearly full-height glass are situated to each side, complemented by lowered bulwarks. The trend of using floor-to-ceiling glass has thus far been popular among larger megayachts. It’s also interesting to note that the saloon doesn’t flow into a dining area. The owner eschewed the traditional formal dining area on this deck in favor of having it on the sundeck.
Something else the owner of My Paradis requested that’s rare to see in this LOA: a sauna. You’d probably expect to find it on the lower deck, or perhaps off the tender garage. Instead, it’s on the same level as the skylounge. It features a skylight, from the sundeck (accessible via the stairs you see here).
Just as is the case below decks, the sundeck allows a flexible layout. That’s because Benetti doesn’t have molded-in seating or other structures, besides the carbon fiber hardtop and extra helm, the latter a few steps down from the relaxation areas. My Paradis has loose lounges aft of the hot tub and the primary dining are forward of it. Other buyers might want to stow extra toys up here, complementing the tender garage.
