Benetti launches first B.Now 50M Oasis Deck superyacht

Italy-based builder Benetti has announced the launch of the first 49.9-metre B.Now 50 Oasis Deck superyacht at the Livorno yard, Italy. Also known as FB605, the new motor yacht is the first steel model in the series to introduce the Oasis Deck® design and draws inspiration from the shipyard’s iconic canons.Lady I yacht launchedThe B.Now 50 Oasis Deck superyacht was built for an experienced owner who was impressed by the style and design of the 107-metre Benetti superyacht Lana, launched in 2020 and the Oasis 34M series yacht. Her owner wanted to replicate the style proposed by Benetti in these two models on her own yacht, with features typically found on larger custom vessels.

The B.Now 50 Oasis Deck superyacht features exterior design by UK-based design house RWD with naval architecture from her builder Benetti. RWD developed the B.Now 50M Oasis Deck to meet the needs of owners looking for close contact with the water and a less formal approach to life onboard.

The Benetti B.Now 50M Oasis Deck is characterised by her absence of bulwarks and ceilings that hinder the view out across the water and horizon. She features an infinity pool, just a few steps from the water’s edge, while her extendable platform allows for larger outdoor space for relaxation.

The B.Now 50 Oasis Deck superyacht features interior design from the Benetti Style Department, in close collaboration with the owner’s team, to bring a timeless elegance that fully reflects the aesthetic sensibility of her owner. All the marble onboard was chosen by the owner, with an extensive use of glazing to illuminate each room with natural light.Benetti BNow 50mPhoto: Benetti / RWDHer interior varies between light and dark colours with luxurious materials such as curly maple wood panels with printed leather inserts, golden light element with Lalique crystal inserts and onyx. Some of the top names in fashion are involved in her design with Armani fabrics on the guest stateroom walls and a Hermes sofa and armchair in the lounge on the upper deck.

The B.Now 50 Oasis Deck superyacht can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests across five sumptuous staterooms, as well as a crew of eight across five cabins. Key amenities include an ethanol fireplace in the lounge on the upper deck and the gym area located on the same deck.

In terms of propulsion, the B.Now 50 Oasis Deck superyachtis equipped with twin MAN engines that provide her with a top speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 13.5 knots.
