Once owned by ex-Google CEO Eric Schmidt, the Lussen Oasis superyacht has been refitted and extended to over 203 feet, with an even larger beach club area.


The Lürssen superyacht Oasis has completed a refit and extension at the Italian shipyard Lusben that comes under the Azimut – Benetti umbrella. Formerly 195 feet long, the 2006-built ship now stretches an impressive 207 feet.Oasis Yacht first visited the Livorno-based yard for the first time in 2021. The owner chose Lusben for complex extension work for a commodious and convivial beach club the second time around. The work took nearly half a year, resulting in a systematic and impressive structural extension of the beach club area and stern platform.

“The results were all very positive, with a clear improvement in terms of both speed and fuel consumption reported during sea trials, bettering the excellent outcome of tank tests carried out in the Netherlands before starting the refit,” commented a representative from the yard. The project also required interior work with the extension, such as new teak and fresh paintwork on the main and upper decks.
