Established in 1873 by Lorenzo Benetti in 1873, Benetti is among Europe’s longest-running yacht builders. The sheer number of yachts that are that are listed in their order books suffices to position it as an international leader. However, over time, Benetti has also built a few particular notable special yachts…
11.11 is a house on the water with families at its heart. It’s an exquisite monochrome work of elegance and luxury. The 63-meter yacht is the second bluff-bowed vessel Benetti has ever constructed, following Nataly (now Rahil).
The owner purchased the yacht at the halfway point of construction and then decided to make some modifications. Despite all the changes, Benetti was still able to launch 11.11 within an year from the date the contract was concluded.
“If we compare our completed vessel with the initial renderings we created to show the client the original model, you could not be able to say that they were identical,” said Benetti project manager Marco De Cosmo.
Diamonds are Forever
It was specifically designed for the charter of luxury yachts marketplace, 60.95 metre Diamonds are Forever was launched in the year 2011 and was featured as one of John Staluppi’s most coveted 7 James Bond Yachts.
The owner of the superyacht Staluppi has built a variety of fast superyachts, but Diamonds are Forever represented a departure from speed towards a luxurious charter. At the time she was launched, he stated that he would like that he could charter her “three to four months each year’.
Staluppi also owned the 52-metre Benetti Quantum of Solace (now Elysium) and in the year 2015 the contract was signed together with Benetti to purchase a semi-displacement of 66 meters, codenamed FB269.
Illusion V is a distinctive style, but thanks to the designers Tina Green and Pietro Mingarelli she’s a relaxing and fashionable family home near the sea.
The owner stated “it’s an ultrayacht that is supposed to be luxury and top-of-the-line However, we’re a young couple with a family of young children and we don’t want anyone to feel they don’t have the right to travel anywhere on board.”
One of the most impressive features is the magnificent sundeck that features a raised pool with a covered dining area as well as sun loungers and a bar which makes it extremely adaptable.
Kingdom 5KR is a yacht launched by Benetti in 1980 . It was among the largest yachts in the world for a number of years. The 85.9 metres long vessel was created by Luigi Sturchio and originally named_Nabila_.
The boat hasn’t been in a peaceful state. It was featured in the James Bond movie Never Say Never Again and was owned by the 2016 presidential candidate of the United States, Donald Trump. She can however be seen moored in Antibes’ International Yacht Club in Antibes.
Owner of Kingdom 5KR Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, announced in 2015 that he plans to give all of his $22 billion wealth to charities. It’s unclear whether the yacht will sell.

The Benetti was owned by Amnesia (now Cakewalk), another Benetti before the owner had a clear idea of what was his preference when it comes to layout for the 65 metres Seanna and there is no space wasted. The cozy stylish customized Benetti was designed to accommodate family sailing and was it was launched in the year 2011.
Her sistership is of Lionheart (now Lioness V) and Silver Angel.
The designer Redman Whiteley Dixon used the portion of the aft deck to create a cinema, believing that the space was often wasted because of a insufficient privacy. Blackout curtains lighting as well as the sound system and the sofa are all designed for the space, as is the 100-inch screen.
Seanna also features a high observation deck that is enclosed by glass Aerie, which makes the most of the space normally left empty beneath the mast.
The innovatively created custom 49.8 meters yacht Vica has been launched back in the year 2015 and is just below 500 tonnes.
Benetti was thinking like a client when creating Vica and its CEO Vincenzo Poerio asking: “How do we speed up the process while reducing costs and stress for the customer, and yet ensure that the product is custom-made for every customer?”
A pre-built hull was an option to reduce the delivery time. Benetti also constructed the hull of composite and the superstructure out of aluminium which made the boat lighter, while also offering endless design options. In spite of the pre-engineered solutions Vica’s owner had a say in the design.
