Benetti sells 11 units of Oasis 40M
Azimut-Benetti Group announces remarkable sales of Oasis 40M and unveils schedule of nine new models in the next 18 months.
Benetti announced that it has sold 11 units of its brand-new Oasis 40M, which was scheduled to debut at the now-cancelled Cannes Yachting Festival.
The stunning sales figure was declared at Azimut-Benetti’s annual press conference in Portofino, where the 133-footer designed by UK-based RWD was showcased along with the Azimut Magellano 25 Metri, which was accompanied by the world premiere of Gabriele Muccino’s short film dedicated to the new Magellano flagship.
Benetti also recently delivered the first Diamond 145, the largest model in its Class series of yachts that includes the Delfino 95, Mediterraneo 116 and Fast 125.
Benetti is scheduled to launch three new models in the next 18 months, starting in September 2021 with the B.Yond 37M, the first model in the brand’s new explorer series, and the Motopanfilo 37M, ushering in a new class for the Italian superyacht builder. It has also scheduled a second Oasis model for early 2022.
Meanwhile, Azimut has scheduled to start 2021 with the new Flybridge 53 and its flagship 38m Trideck, both with exterior designs by Alberto Mancini. A new Flybridge model, the Magellano 66 and the Verve 42 will follow in the autumn, while the new Magellano flagship, the 30 Metri with an exterior by Ken Freivokh, will launch in 2022.
Marco Valle, who began his new role as CEO of Azimut-Benetti Group on September 1, said the company was excited about the future after what he described as a “very complex year”.
“We are now able to present a particularly rich programme of product development. Our overall product range will increase from 30 to 35 models, thus essentially covering all the existing categories in the luxury yachting market, bringing the Collections from eight to 10, adding the luxury explorer category, B.Yond and the whole Oasis experience,” said Valle, who had been CEO of Azimut Yachts since 2016, having joined the brand in 1996.
“This will allow us to continue serving our international clientele by meeting their demands with a range that not only offers yachts from 12m to over 100m long, but also makes it possible to choose from very different and assorted styles of navigation and experiences on board.”
