Now in its seventh edition, the ShowBoats Design Awards will take place between the 21st and 23rd February and are held by Boat International. According to the brand, the awards honour ‘the creative talents behind the most innovative, elegant and inspiring new yacht designs from the boards of the world’s leading yacht design studios’.
Two of Benetti’s yachts have been nominated across five categories. The first of these is the 11.11 vessel, launched last year, which will compete in the ‘Exterior Design & Styling Award – Motor Yacht over 500 GT’ and the ‘Interior Design Award – Motor Yacht over 500GT’ categories.
Measuring 63m, the 11.11 is a carbon construction vessel with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, powered by two Caterpillar 3512C diesel engines and able to reach a maximum speed of 16.5 knots. Spanning four internal decks, she was designed by Stefano Righini and includes two full-beam owner’s cabins and four guest cabins, as well as a pool and solarium deck.
