11.11


ART DECO ON THE HIGH SEAS

Regarded as one of the most beautiful vessels to have emerged in recent years from the Benetti shipyard, the 11.11 received one of the most important awards on offer last year – recognition as the best motor yacht of 2016 in the 500-1299GT displacement category.

The 11.11, whose name is testimony to the shipowner’s daughter’s birthday, is a beautiful 63-metre vessel launched in Viareggio in 2015.

Even though there was a change of ownership ten months before the ship was delivered, the new proprietor worked closely with Benetti in the final stages of construction and managed to give the 11.11 those unique features which have put the yacht in the spotlight.

Success is guaranteed by the elegant and lanky design of the hull, and by the beautiful Art Deco interiors: these consist of made-to-measure furniture and fittings and include a number of works of contemporary art. Produced by a team of the shipowner’s interior designers, their deco style confers an elegance and discreet hospitality.

Further important work was done on the exterior and on the custom tender, produced by Benetti, whose design is in perfect harmony with that of the main vessel.
