Unique Name/Look Helps Benetti Yacht 11-11 [Video] Stand Out  

Posted on

GO AHEAD AND ASK…

Hardly a week goes by that someone doesn’t ask us one of two common questions about charter yacht 11-11:

 

What does the name mean?

 

or…

 

Why is the bow flat?

 

 

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

As to the first question, the name has a dual meaning.  Primarily, motor yacht 11-11 is named for the birthday of the yacht owner’s daughter.  The secondary meaning relates to numerology, where some believe that events linked to the time 11:11 appear more often than can be explained by chance or coincidence.  With some New Age philosophers assigning mystical powers to the numbers, seeing 11:11 pop up on a clock has morphed into a whimsical moment to simply, “make a wish.”

 

BOW DOWN!

Explaining the reason for the yacht’s unique bow is quite pedestrian and far less ethereal.  It is simply a matter of physics.  Measuring 63-meters,  Benetti yacht 11-11 is part of the Italian manufacturer’s  custom line of superyachts.  The distinctive plumb bow, also referred to as an axe bow, was added for hydrodynamic efficiency.  In laymen’s terms,  the vertical bow avoids upward push from waves when the yacht is underway.  By keeping the bow down, this result is a surprisingly stable ride, as compared to yachts with traditional, angled bows…

The award-wining yacht (she took home top honors at the 2016 World Superyacht Awards as Best Displacement motor yacht of 500 GT to 1,299 GT) with the cute name and unique look, accommodates up to 12 private luxury yacht charter guests.  Her layout boasts not one, but two owner suites – a full beam cabin on the main deck, as well as a second on the upper deck.

BOOK THIS YACHT

This beautiful yacht is a frequent visitor to our home town of Miami, and is available for Bahamas yacht charters in the winter and spring.  In the summer, her 16-member crew takes her across the pond to the Mediterranean, where she is available for charters in Italy and France.  Now that her owner has secured a Spanish charter license, the yacht can also offer charters in the Balearic Islands (e.g. Palma, Ibiza, Majorca, Menorca, et al).

Her weekly charter rate is €650,000 plus running expenses.  For further information, click HERE.
