Created by architects Joe Lazzara and Ian Ombres, the Oasis 80 has been designed with an aluminium hull and superstructure and a full beam lower deck with plenty of room for toys and tenders.
“The innovation is the stepped layout and higher freeboard which achieves a flush, full beam, lower deck” says Joe Lazzara, a third generation yacht designer. “This space is typically used for technical equipment on a traditional Catamaran hull”. The full beam (35.5’) owners apartment with fold down private balconies on each side allows the owner to be closer to the water. A master shower with privacy glass has an endless sight line of the water.
The flush lower deck results in a 900 sq ft. beach club. Home to a combination of toy options; an integrated 6,500 SWL telescoping crane makes launching a 28’ tender easy. With a crew of 5 for 10 guests, thought when into how to store toys including an assortment of Fun Air products. “We consulted with Fun Air engineering for the best locations which allow toys to deploy quicker and have integrated compressors and compartments” said naval architect Ian Ombres.
“Hull maintains traditional Catamaran under carriage clearances but with a step hull to alleviate wave slamming and accommodate various load conditions while under way” added the designer.
With a total combined sq. ft. of 5300, OASIS boasts more interior and exterior usable area than the average 130’ Tri-deck.
More information about the project will be revealed at the Fort Lauderdale boat show later this year.
