The new BO116 was launched at Benetti’s Livorno shipyard. Built for a Canadian owner, this superyacht faithfully reflects the original design of the Oasis 40M, with exteriors by RWD and interiors by Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture.
The main focus in the design of this new Benetti yacht was on achieving a high level of onboard wellbeing. Thanks to the Oasis Deck®, which transforms the beach area into a sea-view terrace, the BO116 is an invitation to cruise in close contact with nature, a condition more and more owners are demanding in their pursuit of an experience of pure wellness. For this reason, on the Main Deck the classic gym area has been transformed into a wellness cabin, while the large shower in the owner’s suite can become a Turkish bath.
For even more wellbeing and conviviality, the owner asked the Shipyard to incorporate a customised lighting system with party lights into the Sun Deck, complete with a DJ console, thus ensuring maximum entertainment.
The interiors are bathed in natural light thanks to the extensive glazing on all decks, giving all the yacht’s settings a bright and welcoming feel. A feature of BO116, one that could already be found on certain previous units and was a priority for this owner, was the replacement of the Main Deck dining area with a lounge space featuring a strikingly elegant Onice marble bar unit with back-lighting.
The BO116’s five cabins can accommodate up to 12 guests and, with two MAN V12-1400 engines, she has a cruising speed of 11 knots and a top speed of 17 knots. One of the yacht’s most important technical features is the Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) system in line with IMO Tier III exhaust gas emissions regulations. The BO116 is also fully compliant with the relevant standards for commercial use.
