The art deco–inspired interior of 11.11 is among this year’s most eclectic and most attractive. Details include a backlit quartzite dining table in one of the saloons, a diamond-patterned marble floor in the central lobby, and a copper chandelier that looks like a wreath of feathers and hangs over the bed in the owner’s suite. The owner acquired this 207-footer halfway through the build process and brought in his own design team to incor-porate these and other details into the existing frame-work. The art decorating the interior includes an interactive piece by the British artist Dominic Harris. Called Flutter Wall, it’s a video panel depicting dozens of butterflies that seemingly come to life and form a kaleidoscopic swarm when you touch the screen.  

  • In addition to a suite, the owner’s deck features a hot tub and a sunning area. 
  • The main deck includes another suite that spans the yacht’s 35.4-foot beam. Four staterooms are located below deck.
  • The vertical bow is unusual for a  Benetti yacht.
  • Benetti built a custom tender for the yacht’s owner.
