The annual Boat International World Superyacht Awards, now in their 19th year, celebrate excellence at sea by showcasing the world’s finest superyachts. This year, the exclusive award ceremony was held in Venice, the city that brings the sea and beauty together like no other, making it the perfect setting for the yachting world’s most coveted awards. 

The “Displacement Motor Yachts 499GT and below, 40m to 44.9m” category was won by M/Y Oreos in Benetti’s Oasis 40M family, with the jury motivating its decision by saying she is “a lovely boat with a well-conceived general arrangement and a very attractive profile”. M/Y Oreos turned the judges’ heads thanks to the possibilities that this boat presents for customisations and the focus on indoor-outdoor design.

Three years after her launch, the model is again a winner at the World Superyacht Awards and this second prize confirms that the revolutionary Oasis Deck remains an appealing concept in the yachting world and continues to excite and surprise owners around the world.

Oasis 40M M/Y Oreos is striking first and foremost because of her standout feature, the Oasis Deck®. Much more than just a beach area, this multifunction deck is entirely devoted to conviviality, relaxation and the open-air life, acting as a water’s edge terrace of a size previously unthinkable on a yacht in this category, with an infinity pool just steps from the sea and lateral terraces that create a boundless lounge area. 

The exterior styling of M/Y Oreos, designed by British firm RWD in partnership with the Shipyard, is defined by a highly distinctive sense of modern elegance, in a perfect blend of Italian refinement and classic English lines. The peculiarity of this yacht is that she offers an experience in complete symbiosis with nature thanks to the Oasis Deck, as well as standing out for the customisations requested by the owner, including the glazed surfaces on either side of the lounge on the Main Deck, which act both as floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open manually onto the outdoor walkways, creating a sense of indoor-outdoor fluidity, or the balcony in the master cabin that reinforces the connection between the interiors and the natural environment.

The interiors, designed by New York firm Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture, play with the natural light that floods in through the extensive glazing, transforming it into a design feature. On M/Y Oreos, transparent surfaces have an even higher profile: on the Sun Deck, for example, the lounge area is separated from the dining and relaxation area further astern by a new semicircular glazed wall that can be opened. This feature provides shelter from the wind when under way or at anchor and is yet another demonstration of how Oasis 40M is a masterpiece created in pursuit of harmony with the surrounding environment.
