Growing Oasis

Benetti has launched the first 50-metre B.Now 50M superyacht to feature the popular Oasis Deck design.

23 March 2023


Benetti’s Oasis Deck has quickly become one of the company’s biggest successes, heralding a new era of aft deck design that was once the preserve of the largest and most exclusive bespoke yachts in the fleet. Now featured on yachts down to 34 metres, the pool-centric design, with extended deck beach club and water access features, has really helped shift the landscape in smaller superyacht design.

Now, Benetti has launched the first 50-metre steel B.Now 50M model – known as project FB605 – to feature the Oasis Deck design. The new model has been built for an experienced owner who was impressed by the style and design of the 107m Benetti Lana and the adventurous Oasis 34M and wanted to replicate the winning solution on her own jewel of a yacht, which has many of the features typically found on much larger custom vessels.

The B.Now 50M is the first model in the B.Now family to be equipped with the Oasis Deck and precedes the 60-, 67- and 72-metre yachts penned by the RWD design studio. The UK-based firm has developed for this yacht a unique design to meet the aspirations of a new generation of owners seeking a less formal onboard lifestyle that is always in close contact with the water.


It has led to an absence of bulwarks and ceilings hindering the view out over the water, so owner and guests can enjoy the sensory benefits it brings even when at anchor.

The focus, of course, remains the Oasis Deck and its trademark infinity pool just steps from the water’s edge. The right combination of sun and shade means that guests can enjoy this chic private oasis at any time of day, while the even larger space created by opening the platform is ideal as an open-air relaxation area.

For the interiors, the Benetti Style Department worked in close collaboration with the team of the owner, who wanted to choose all the marble used on board herself, to bring a timeless elegance.

Flooded with light that pours in through the extensive glazing, the various settings feature alternating light and dark colours, establishing a harmonious rhythm underscored by curly maple wood panels on the walls that are interspersed with printed leather inserts.

The light that plays a central role in the interior design is pointed up by golden elements, Lalique crystal inserts, and custom lamps made from the same onyx used for the tops. Top names from the worlds of fashion and design also feature, such as Armani for the guest cabin wall fabrics and Hermes for the sofa and armchair in the upper saloon.

The Oasis philosophy continues to evolve, says Benetti, with indoor and outdoor spaces that can be redefined to offer new hospitality destinations based on the needs of the owner and their guests.

The shipyard emphasises that it is a solution that articulates a new lifestyle concept, amplifying contact with the water and the authenticity of life lived on board in a dynamic and informal style that is also chic and refined, exemplified on FB605 by an ethanol fireplace in the upper saloon and a gym area on the same deck.

The B.Now 50M Oasis Deck is a further advancement of the yard’s offering, successfully combining modernity, innovation and functionality with the artisan craftsmanship, design know-how and construction quality that have made Benetti’s models milestones in the yachting world, opening up new design frontiers.
