The Italian shipbuilder showed the results of the new yachts plus hull and superstructure in the first example.
In addition to introducing a new series of yachts with the debut of Oasis 135 ‘and enjoying a flagship for its classic category, Benetti also used the Cannes Yachting Festival to introduce four new RWD-designed models from the company’s BNow series. As you may remember, RWD, a British design company, founded a quarter of a century ago, was also working on the Oasis 135, and has a long history with the Italian shipbuilder.
The new family of yachts consists of four models of different lengths: 164 feet, 180 feet, 207 feet, and 223 feet. At the show, Benetti showed the first steel hull and aluminum superstructure from the series. The model shown was the 164-foot (called BNow 36), which has a total internal volume that is small enough to slip below the 500 gigabyte, which adds additional rules.
While yacht owners are notorious for the press, Benetti revealed that the displayed yacht was built for a repetition from the Middle East. The Italian shipbuilder also hopes that it can show the yachts in the BNow series faster than others on the market thanks to what it dubiously calls its “advanced construction technology.”
Together with the hull and superstructure, Benetti also shared BNow 63 releases, giving us a little insight into what these yachts will look like. Of course, it follows with the caution that all four models in the line are fully customized, and Benetti will work with prospective owners to create their own unique layout. As with Oasis 135 ‘, the feeling of connecting passengers to the ocean around them was important to the designers, so indoor rooms float easily into the outside space and long windows give plenty of light.
The coolest thing we’ve learned about the yacht from the renderings? At the aft, a long infinity pool extends over the top of the yacht’s beach club; creating a place Benetti has called the pool lounge.
