SUNDAY Benetti | From EUR€ 300,000 /wk
Built by the Italian BENETTI shipyard, the 60 m SUNDAY has exterior lines by Stefano Natucci while the boat’s interior design is the result of the collaboration between Studio IPSO architects and the Owner’s wife, a very important collector and connoisseur of modern art.

Studio IPSO drew their inspiration from the famous architects who designed and created the “Normandy” ocean liner back in the 1930’s. When launched in 1932, as the fastest, largest liner afloat, she represented the height of Art Deco design and her style has been replicated in the full beam owners’ suite. The main concept was to create two independent and yet complementary elements:
Owners’ previous yacht has provided a fertile ground for ideas that would be applied to Sunday, such as the innovation of the extended bridge wings, allowing a clear line of sight to the stern. The yacht shows power but the minute you enter, the elegance and exquisite taste surrounds you, reflecting presence and character. Sunday - the sense of Purity
The Owners’ wish to intervene more forcefully on the interior aspect where they dreamed to create a sense of vast space, but one that would radiate warmth, serenity and style. Special art effects were used and after a careful blend of paintings and artworks, Sunday’s Owners achieved an atmosphere which is bright yet soft, even though one would not have expected it for an art-based interior.
Skilled technicians and gifted craft men were gathered by this concept to create a modern, elegant, unique vessel.
When SUNDAY is alongside, a starboard gangway midships channels the guests directly into the main deck entrance hall. From here the Owners’ suite is forward and the main saloon aft. A wide staircase curves down to the main guest accommodation and crew quarters on the lower deck and up to the VIP cabin and a second, informal saloon on the upper deck. The hallway is uncluttered, dominated by a voluptuous glass female torso. On into the foyer, one meets the continuation of the onyx floor patterned with the geometrical and circular stainless steel partners. The same idea follows into the guest powder room with stainless steel flowers engraved on to the white onyx walls.
Entering into the main saloon the white onyx flooring with stainless steel geometrical batters is eye-catching. If the weather is chilly outdoors, comfortable sofas and armchairs invite you to stay in. You can relax surrounded by the custom made furniture by Graman Lagarde and admire under the light of the custom-made lamps by Schmidt, Paris, the private art collection of the Owner. Each section of the saloon contains remarkable objects: two matching cupboards with panels of leather, the double doors to the aft deck are encased in plexiglass flank; a pair of metal sculptures divide the sitting area from the dining table; and pastels from Notero, an unusual cigar humidor and countless small art works, all conspire to produce a head spinning visual feast.
Entering the Owners study a doubled faced desk stands in front of an impressive graved wall map in yellow gold depicting the Mediterranean basin and its important monuments and sites made by Parisian Artist Mireille Herbst ALM Decor.
Here the ambience becomes instantly warmer and less formal; off white leather panels and 4 stainless steel women figures custom made by Schmidt, Paris, representing the four seasons on the walls. Reminiscent of Botticellis’ The Birth of Venus, the naked female figure in each panel, is seto on a background of waves and sea life. Unusual free-standing lamps and false consoles bring a note of elegance. His and Hers bathrooms are located to the sides of the main cabin. They too echo the theme of with white onyx with geometrical patterns, Her bathroom is particularly elegant, featuring metallic women’s figures on the marble walls. A grand stair case facing the bed brings you into a unique private sitting area with panoramic views. A perfect private heaven onboard where you can enjoy a book, look at the sky, listen to music, or even watch TV (from a well hidden Plasma screen) while crossing the seas.
Up one deck, the upper deck saloon provides another deeply pleasurable assault on the senses. Philippe Stark metal stools stand at the bar area within easy reach of a flip-top gaming table and four chairs by Donghia, while at the aft end. Six curved glass doors retract fully to give access to the aft deck and provide panoramic view for guests dining at the round table. Looking back you can indulge your eye site by the magnificent round table made by Graman Lagarde, while seated on the dolphin designed chairs made by Mark Brasier-Jones and be dazzled by the fibre Optics which form the zodiac signs of all the members of the Owners family in a dome on the ceiling which is covered with white gold Leafs. Owners explanation is explanatory…why have normal chairs when you can have dolphins?? In the centre of the table, a traditional compass provides navigational information.
Forward of the upper saloon the Vip cabin with ensuite bathroom is in a different style to the lower deck guest accommodation, but retains the Art Décor theme, albeit with less intensity. There are internally lot columns in the cabin, for example, reference the towering Lalique pillars that illuminated the cavernous 700 seat dining room on Normandie., on the upper deck maintains the same concept. Black leather lines forming squares on the hand board wall. Mother of pearl on lamps, decorative items made by Schmidt. A beautiful onyx bathroom completes the luxury and pampering.
From the foyer to the lower deck the family’s guests will be thrilled in the four guest cabins accommodating eight people, with superb ensuite bathrooms promising luxury and comfort. A further unusual use of stainless steel is found in the skirting boards and three-tier covering in all the guest cabins. The faultless curves and clarity in the parallel horizontal lines reproduce the Streamline Modern style of the late Art Décor period.
The bridge has an austere look, black and white leathers are used and a huge black leather couch dominates on which when seated you can enjoy your horizon to unfold before your eyes. Security measures controlled from the bridge are impressive. Thermal imaging equipment and camera’s daylight capability are some of the special safety measures onboard.
The sundeck has a “paradise” Spa Pool pool adjacent to vast sunbathing areas, bar area, dining area and lounging area. Leisure time is transformed into the total escape to pleasure for all guests on board. Under the sun with a cocktail or under the stars with candle light you can escape to heaven with “Sunday” disappearing on a summer night into the turquoise seas.

Guests can reach the bathing platform along a starboard companionway from the aft deck and board the tenders, swim or shelter from the sun beneath two umbrellas slotted into the teak decking.

Positive Customer Review: "One of the most memorable parts for me was the launch. I went with my wife, and Benetti had a Roman Catholic priest bless the yacht. It was very beautiful with all the Italian music and then the British national anthem, and it was all very unexpected. I thought I was just going to be putting the boat in the water, but in fact it turned into a very emotional day!" - Owner of a Benetti called motor yacht 11:11
