Azimut-Benetti's history dates back to 1969, when enterprising young college student Paolo Vitelli founded Azimut Srl. Founded as a sailing boat chartering company, Azimut has since grown to become one of the world’s leading shipyards with over 10,000 vessels to its name. A true legend in the superyacht construction and service-providing industry, Azimut acquired the historical Benetti shipyard in Viareggio in 1985, consequently inheriting the yard’s years of technical experience and allowing the company to increase its launch rate of larger superyachts.
Azimut-Benetti is now one of the the world’s largest producers of superyachts over 80 feet, and is recognized for its technological and technical excellence as it continues to construct quality vessels from its base in Italy, one of yachting’s heartlands.
The company's yachts with a length of over 100ft form the "Azimut GRANDE" Division: an exceptional portfolio of superyachts which offer every imaginable luxury. The design philosophy is entirely at the service of the superyacht owner with a special team of designers to provide services directly to the client's home, anywhere in the world. This gives a characteristically Italian name to the approach that Azimut has always taken to customer relations: an approach that has made it a favourite shipyard amongst superyacht owners and charter guests.
