Established by Paolo Vitelli in 1969, Azimut (part of the Azimut Benetti Group) is one of the biggest yacht builders in the world by sheer numbers of yachts built and has built hundreds of luxury yachts over the years. From very simple beginnings of chartering sailboats, Azimut has flourished into becoming a leader in the production of luxury fly bridge yachts. In 1985 Azimut acquired Benetti, heralding a longstanding partnership between the two brands.
Today, Azimut Yachts offers one of the most comprehensive ranges of yachts in the world, from small fly bridge motor yachts to massive fiberglass superyachts. Specialising in the smaller size bracket of luxury yachts the Azimut range stretches from 11.8m to around the 40m mark. The Azimut brand centres around quality and Azimut-built yachts are known for their effortless beauty and Italian essence.
Crafted to ensure comfort and safety, Azimuts feature classic and elegant designs and draw upon advanced technologies for optimum performance. With bases around the world, in 2003 Azimut substantially increased their facilities when the yard opened a new Viareggio plant located in the heart of Viareggio harbour.
This 52,000 sqm facility, ideally positioned on the water’s edge, allowed the company to significantly extend its operations. A proven Italian brand, Azimut offers beautiful, high-quality yachts that are enduringly popular.
