Benetti 55m "Ocean Paradise"

Benetti just released pictures of their recently launched 55m (180ft) "Ocean Paradise". She will make her anticipated debut at the Monaco Yacht Show 2013 that runs from the 25th - 28th of September. She is built in aluminium and steel on a tried and tested Benetti platform, yet she oozes innovation especially in the interior design and partitioning.

The owner, a dynamic young businessman from Singapore was always closely involved throughout the design and build phases. Minamilist, but never cold, and always connected to the sea were some of the guidelines given by the owner for the development of Ocean Paradise. The guidelines were followed with innovative features such as the combination of transparent and opaque materials to bring the outside in or create a contemporary look and feel inside.

There are four guest cabins that are all located on the lower deck, with access from a central hall that's connected to the main deck foyer. Each cabin has its own spacious bathroom and views of the sea are guaranteed by the large portholes. The owners master suite is located in the traditional place forward on the main deck and stretches across from port to starboard. It includes an expansive bathroom and side balcony areas seen in the picture below.

Light was also of primary importance when designing and constructing Ocean Paradise, as special attention was spent on gaining natural light by incorporating ample windows and a crystal skylight. Artificial light was added using temperature controlled colour lighting to match the natural light. With the importance of natural light you get a some what Zen like feeling and this is only increased as you will find a number of Zen gardens throughout her decks. This addition will create a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere for the owner and guests as they enjoy their home away from home.

Some other features include the oversize swimming pool with waterfalls on the upper deck, a gym, a mini bar with DJ set up. She is one to look out for at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
