It's one for every phosphodiester bond formed. 11 nucleotides, but only 10 bonds needed to join them into an oligonucleotide: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 N--N--N--N--N--N--N--N--N--N--N 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

I think a good candidate is the human titin gene. The gene itself has 363 exons, depending on the isoform it has between 27.000 and 34.000 residues. This makes up a processed mRNA length of up to 100kb for the full length isoform. See either the Wikipedia article or the one linked below for more details: The complete gene sequence of titin, expression of ...
