From super yachts to flybridge yachts, sport yachts to long range yachts, Azimut is a world leader in state of the art yacht building. It all began in 1969 when Paolo Vitelli decided to charter sailboats to people in Turin, Italy naming the company Azimut. The following 15 years was the foundation of Azimut. In 1970, Azimut started distributing on behalf of well-known yacht builders and caught the eye of the Dutch boat yard, Amerglass. It became a collaboration of Dutch innovation and Italian design. The collaboration gave life to the AZ 43’ Bali, one of the largest mass-produced fiberglass yachts of the time. The next years brought great achievements. With a focus on the lower end market, Azimut created the famous AZ 32 Targa known as the “Model T” of the seas, selling over 200 units. Designing yachts for the demanding market was challenging at times, but Paolo’s enduring love of the sea kept him motivated and helped create the Failaka. Paolo was having dinner with the Prince of Kuwait and drew the design within a matter of minutes. Failaka was the first 30-meter to be built entirely of fiberglass. The yacht brand caught the eye of Americans as the yacht was displayed at the Miami Boat Show in 1985.

After its partnership with other boatyards, it was Azimut’s turn to manufacture its own designs. In 1985 Azimut acquired Fratelli Benetti boatyard. Though Benetti held on to its brand for some time, it would eventually become Azimut Benetti Yacht Group. Known today as a world leader in yacht building with an expansive portfolio of innovative, quality mega yachts. With over a century of building under the Benetti name, the boatyard gave life to the Azimut designs without having to compromise quality. The boatyard brought innovation to the forefront. In 1988, the new Azimut Benetti group wanted to go big. It set out to conquer the Blue Ribbon Trophy with the Azimut Atlantic Challenger which carried one paying customer, Winthrop Rockefeller. Azimut gained Global recognition after the transatlantic trip.
The builder hired the Italian designer, Stefano Righini, which would set the standard of Italian design and the groundbreaking designs of Azimuts. Stefano changed the design of the yachts to feature lightness and space by freeing up their shape. He was a trendsetter and distinguished Azimut Benetti with glued glass panes, electric windows and seats, and authentic wood interiors.
Azimut Benetti has acquired 6 boatyards over its 40 years in business and continues to grow to maintain excellent relations with their clients. The most important standard for Azimut is quality.
