One hundred and 13 feet long (34.36 meters), the first Benetti Oasis 34M splashed on April 29 as part of a traditional christening ceremony. Her name: Seaesta.
The Oasis series gets its name from the Oasis Deck, a multi-level leisure space. Firstly, it includes fold-down “wings” to each side of the main aft deck, expanding usable space well above the lapping waves. Secondly, a glass-walled infinity pool sits right near the water’s edge, further tucked into a sunning area. The Oasis Deck additionally has unimpeded views from the saloon fully aft and to each side. All of this lends the feeling of one big social space from the saloon to the sea. It’s a solution from Benetti and RWD, the Oasis series stylist, to provide especially younger buyers with more enjoyable and useful alfresco areas.
The Oasis 34M has other notable characteristics, too. For instance, to suit owners and guests who can’t get enough of the water, the megayacht has a multi-function section of her swim platform. It’s a Sea Lift, which eases retrieval of a PWC, plus lowers for swimmers to enter the sea.
Featuring the interior design of Bonetti & Kozerski, Seaesta has subdued colors for the interior, in keeping with the focus on alfresco living. In fact, the owners purposely chose tones that complement the teak decking outside. This explains why light-colored wood soles highlight areas like the saloon, for instance.
With a beam of 25’2” (7.7 meters), Seaesta has accommodations for 10 people total in the owners’ party. They’ll enjoy several cherished cruising grounds, considering the megayacht should have a best range of 2,700 nautical miles. Top speed should be 16 knots under MTU power.
Look for many more Oasis 34M launches to come. The shipyard has eight under construction so far.
