Ocean Paradise

by Benetti Yachts – Azimuth / Benetti Group

Launched at the beginning of summer, Ocean Paradise is a 55-metre displacement yacht in steel and aluminium, based on Benetti’s tried and tested naval platform but enhanced with highly innovative features, particularly in terms of compartmentation, fittings, decoration and furnishings.


With this yacht, Benetti once again demonstrates its versatile capabilities when it comes to interpreting and adapting to owners’ requirements: all the solutions on board have been specially developed by the shipyard’s designers and engineers to fulfil the specific instructions of the Owner, a dynamic young businessman from Singapore who was very much involved throughout the design and construction phases. Numerous cutting-edge design elements go into making Ocean Paradise unique, from the furniture and lighting technology solutions to fresh architectural solutions. Transparent and opaque materials are combined, sometimes to emphasise the traditional connection with the sea and at other times to create a sportier, more modern appearance. All of this is managed and coordinated in the various yacht settings using BEST (Benetti Exclusive Sea Technology), the tried and tested ambient management system installed by the shipyard on numerous hulls in its range, which has been very well received by owners and crews. Benetti integrated bridge technology has also been installed in the master station, allowing the crew to monitor and manage all the on-board systems quickly and intuitively, guaranteeing safety and quick intervention. The system uses touchscreen technology to control the status of all the yacht’s sensitive systems, making it possible to manage alarms and operational status. The ship can be fully controlled from the bridge, together with instantaneous notification of any malfunctions in locations with no crew present. This highly evolved system makes it possible to manage systems such as air conditioning to guarantee that energy is used rationally in a variety of navigation conditions. Everywhere on board, designers and engineers have worked diligently to create lighting technology solutions that will always create the right atmosphere, with an excellent result achieved in part by using ordinary and RGB LEDs that are cleverly concealed among the various components of the claddings and managed by systems that are easy to use but have a complex structure integrated into the functions of the BEST system. Light is certainly the element that has been strongly emphasised throughout the project, both natural light brought in through large windows such as the glass skylight, and artificial light that is colour temperature controlled so that it is always consistent with the light coming in from outside. Careful treatment of the atmospheric lighting emphasises the yacht’s intended use in chartering, as Ocean Paradise is designed to meet all the needs of superior accommodation, but at the same time the yacht has numerous highly individual elements tailored to fully express the Owner’s personality. For example, the designers looked for solutions to guarantee fluid visual communication between neighbouring areas and most importantly with the sea, even when comfortably seated in the salon or dining space. All of this has been achieved through a careful study of the heights of non-transparent elements and the use of materials such as plexiglass or glass, as is the case with the absence of the top bulwark corresponding to the floor-to-ceiling windows of the salon. Prominent among the solutions adopted to maximise the use of space and volume and ensure comfort and contact with the sea is the stern configuration with a beach area attached to a relaxation area and deck formed by lowering the transom. To create an open air section that is private and separate from operations to manoeuvre the tender and water toys, the engineers developed a side opening solution with a platform for mooring the tender and jetskis. In addition, the sun deck features a gym in a panoramic position, an oversized pool with waterfalls, and furniture that calls to mind natural environments and facilitates the view of the sea. As well as the constant visual contact with the sea, the Owner’s basic requirements included creating interiors with a minimalist flavour but without a cold feel. In developing the design, the Italian shipyard’s design team flawlessly interpreted these wishes, achieving an ideal result from both an aesthetic and a functional point of view. [...]
