The esteemed Italian boat builder Benetti launched one of the most exciting new builds onto the market when 11.11 entered the water in 2015. Almost immediately she was recognised as one of the greats and was awarded a 2016 World Superyacht Award in the category Displacement Motor Yachts 500GT TO 1,299GT.
The 63m (206.7ft) 11.11 owns head turning looks with her unique axe bow, a feature that is also pleasing to the world cruiser with its enhanced fuel efficiency. Her sleek, but masculine lines cut through water effortlessly and by nightfall, 46 lights placed below the water line beautifully illuminate her while at anchor. Her stunning aesthetics follow through into her chic interior, crafted by the owner's personal design team. Drawing inspiration from the 1920s and 30s art deco period, the designer carefully realised the brief utilising cool beiges, dark browns, whites and creams accented with touchable fabrics and hand crafted one-of-a-kind pieces throughout.
She offers accommodation for 12 guests over six well-appointed cabins, including a master and VIP suite. The VIP sits on the full-beam main deck whereas the master, which comes complete with its own private deck, plunge pool and sunbathing area, is positioned on the upper deck. The guest cabins, found on the lower deck are spacious, light and airy. The neutral colour palette found throughout the yacht has been adhered to with an added accent of midnight blue.
Communal areas are indulgent and offer anything from a large pool and bathing area to a spa complete with treatment room and steam room. The sky lounge, saloon and deck spaces offer ideal spots to relax, dine and socialise or simply admire the owner's taste in art. Original pieces from art-world greats feature throughout including a bespoke Tracy Emin piece entitled Move me.
