Against the stunning backdrop of the Dolomite mountains, at Alexander Girardi Hall in Cortina d’Ampezzo, the winners were announced on February 8th of the coveted Design and Innovation Awards 2023 organized by Boat International, one of the most highly reputed international media outlets in the yachting industry.
This annual event showcases all the many aspects of design and technological innovation that work together to offer innovative solutions on the world’s most beautiful boats.
Best new series
Chosen by a jury of designers from within as well as outside the marine industry Benetti Oasis 34M, the second model in the innovative Oasis family, won the prestigious Neptune statuette in the “Best New Series” category for “its use of space, from the signature aft deck pool and terrace, dubbed the Oasis Deck®, to the generous sundeck above”.
The jury perceived Oasis 34M as a model “that respects the characteristics of its big sister, offering clients several layout choices and various interior finishes”.
The exterior styling of Oasis 34M is the fruit of profitable collaboration between the shipyard and the team at British firm RWD, international yacht designers. The interiors, on the other hand, are by Bonetti & Kozerski, the New York-based firm that has introduced significant influences on board derived from the architecture of sophisticated residential and haute hôtellerie projects.
