6 of our favourite Benetti superyachts

Established through Lorenzo Benetti in 1873, Benetti is among Europe’s most renowned yacht builders. The sheer number of yachts that are in the order book is enough to establish Benetti as a global leader, but over time, Benetti has also built a few noteworthy special yachts…

11.11 is a place on the water, with family members at its core – the perfect monochrome blend of class and luxury. The 63-meter yacht is the second bluff-bowed yacht Benetti has ever constructed, following Nataly (now Rahil).

The owner of the vessel purchased it midway through construction and made certain changes. Despite all the changes, Benetti was still able to launch 11.11 within an year from the date the contract was agreed upon.

“If one compares the final boat to the initial renderings we created to show the client the original model, you could not think that they are identical,” said Benetti project manager Marco De Cosmo.

Diamonds are Forever

It was specifically designed for the luxury charter yacht marketplace, 60.95 metre Diamonds are Forever was launched in the year 2011 and is included among John Staluppi’s best 7 James Bond Yachts.

The owner of the superyacht Staluppi has built a variety of fast superyachts. However, Diamonds are Forever represented a move away 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 to Benetti on a semi-displacement of 66 metres, coded FB269.

Illusion V

Illusion V has an original design, and thanks to the designers Tina Green and Pietro Mingarelli it’s a comfortable and fashionable family home near the sea.

The owner of the vessel said “it’s an ultrayacht that is supposed to be luxurious and high-end However, we’re a young couple with a family of young children and we don’t want anyone else 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 and a dining area that is all-weather as well as sun loungers and a bar that makes it flexible.

Kingdom 5KR

Kingdom 5KR began operations by Benetti in 1980 . It was among the largest yachts in the world for a long time. The 85.9 metres long vessel was developed 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 at anchor in Antibes’ International Yacht Club in Antibes.

Owner of Kingdom 5KR Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, announced in 2015 that he would give all of his 322 billion dollars fortune to charities. It’s unclear whether the yacht will go under.


The Benetti was owned by Amnesia (now Cakewalk), another Benetti prior to the time that the owner had a clear idea of what was his preference when it comes to layout for the 65 meters Seanna and that no space is wasted. The cozy and stylish customized Benetti was created for families who want to enjoy living at sea, and it was launched in the year 2011.

It is the sistership of Lionheart (now Lioness V) and Silver Angel.

The designer Redman Whiteley Dixon used the area to the left of the main deck to screen the cinema, believing that the area is frequently wasted because of a insufficient privacy. Blackout curtains lighting audio, and the c-shaped sofa are all designed for the space, as is the 100-inch screen.

Seanna also comes with a raised observation deck, which is glass-enclosed aeriethat makes maximum use of the space that is normally inaccessible beneath the mast.


The innovatively created custom 49.8 meters yacht Vica is launched the year 2015 and is just below the threshold of 500 tons.

Benetti considered the perspective of a customer when creating Vica and the CEO Vincenzo Poerio asking: “How do we speed up the process to reduce costs and stress for the customer, and yet ensure that the product is custom-made for each customer?”

Pre-fabricated hulls were an option to reduce the delivery time. Benetti also constructed the hull out of composite, and the superstructure out of aluminium which made the boat lighter and offering endless design options. In spite of the pre-engineered solutions Vica’s owner had a say in the design.
