Benetti has just unveiled the first images of the Ocean Paradise, the brand’s latest yacht, which will be presented in a world exclusive at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show, which runs September 25-28.
This 55 meter-long mega yacht was assembled in the Livorno boatyard in Tuscany, where it has just been put to sea. Designed according to the specifications of the boat’s owner — a wealthy Singaporean businessman — the yacht combines high-end technology and ultra luxury design.
Automated systems handle all the settings. The interior design is based on minimalist lines, with a mix of transparent materials and openings onto the outside to let in natural light, such as the large bay windows in the living room.
The Ocean Paradise includes four guest cabins with marble bathrooms and a main suite with its own terrace at the bow on the main deck. Every detail has been carefully, luxuriously treated, such as the leather-surfaced interior of the wardrobes.
The upper deck is dedicated to a private home beach club, equipped with a solarium, a waterfall pool, a gym and a mini bar with DJ mixing tables.
The design of the Silver Arrows Marine Granturismo, a motor-powered mini-yacht created by the Mercedes-Benz design team, will be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show September 25-28.
Silver Arrows Marine called upon the design expertise of the German car manufacturer to come up with the concept for this 14-meter luxury yacht. To create the futuristic and sophisticated look of a seafaring sports car, the Mercedes-Benz team applied techniques from the automobile industry. Sea trials of prototypes were conducted to confirm the maneuverability and handling of the design.
It took the designers 12 months to finalize and perfect every detail, and the result is an innovative and elegant concept that brings to mind the brand’s GT roadsters.
The design — which Silver Arrows Marine president Ron Gibbs sees as the blueprint for “an absolute world-class motor yacht” — includes a spacious cabin that opens onto the exterior, as well as a pool with a terrace giving direct access to the water. The curves on the hull and the materials used inside and out are more reminiscent of a luxury car than of a yacht.
Ahead of the production phase, full details on the Silver Arrows Marine Granturismo will be presented in late September at the next edition of the Monaco Yacht Show.
