Benetti Launches Second Oasis 40M M/Y Joy
Launched on 31 March in Livorno, M/Y Joy is the second unit of Oasis 40M, a glamorous yacht designed to cultivate a dynamic and informal lifestyle on board, providing a seamless connection with nature. The exterior styling has been penned by UK design firm RWD with interiors created by Bonetti Kozerski Architecture in New York.
The innovative 40m fibreglass superyacht has been built with a series of specially requested custom features. The owner, a first-time Benetti buyer, supervised the design and production of the yacht first-hand and expressed his satisfaction at the result delivered by the shipyard, which has once again demonstrated the unparalleled construction capabilities that make it a unique testimonial of ‘Made in Italy’ excellence worldwide.
The exterior styling of Oasis 40M is the perfect combination of Italian refinement and classic English lines designed by the UK-based RWD. The vertical bow, full-height glazing in the wheelhouse, and automotive industry-inspired style accents give the yacht an energy-filled look, while the wide-open spaces in the stern dedicated to an outdoor lifestyle reveal her free and glamorous spirit.
The beach area is powerfully innovative, taking the form of a terrace with no physical or visual barriers and designed as a multifunctional space. This area is perfect during the day as a focal point for life on board, and in the evening as an elegant salon, ideal for a pre-dinner aperitif or even an open-air cinema.
The interiors have been designed for informal comfort by New York firm Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture, reminiscent of an elegant open space loft. Large-glazed surfaces and glass doors help to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces.
M/Y Joy’s Main Deck features an expansive lounge with two side windows in the dining area, made up of three sections that can be opened. On the port side, a door provides access to the galley, where the crew can move to the accommodation in the bow and on the Lower to upper decks, using separate routes to protect the owner’s privacy.
The master suite is preceded by a refined private study customised with smart glass. At the owner’s request, the suite has the added convenience of its own cosy terrace on the starboard side, while a central corridor leads to the dressing area and bathroom, both divided into his and hers areas.
The many distinctive features of JOY include an advanced wi-fi remote control system that means the yacht can be moored from the stern area without needing to be in the wheelhouse, and the installation of outdoor loudspeakers to play music, confirming the owner’s desire to use the yacht for socialising, something to which she lends herself perfectly.
This superyacht has been built to the highest technical and construction standards on the market, and with an attention to detail and every aspect of construction that can also be seen in the care taken over air quality in the interior closed spaces, where a treatment system ensures that the air is always fresh and clean, with up to six changes per hour.
M/Y Joy is very much another superb addition to the already stellar Benetti fleet.
