We selected for you top 5 yacht stories of the last week at Yacht Harbour.

24-metre power catamaran by Lazzara Ombres Architects

The Oasis project is from the hands of Lazzara Ombres Architects. A cross over design of a Power Catamaran with the toy capacity of a Shadow yacht. Creating anything unique in the yachting world is a tall order but Oasis has done just that.

“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.

With a total combined sq. ft. of 5300, OASIS boasts more interior and exterior usable area than the average 130’ Tri-deck.
