ABOUT AZIMUT YACHTS
Azimut boats are renowned for their voluminous interiors and striking style. Composed of advanced technology and unparalleled aesthetic, Azimuts are a reflection of the prestigious seaside location in Northern Italy where they are carefully built and designed.
Azimuts range from 34 feet to 35 meters and regardless of the size they never waver in either comfort or safety. In addition to being highly recognized within the yachting community, Azimuts have on numerous occasions been accredited with the highest number of votes for “Best Yacht Producer” globally. The worldwide attention has vastly increased the demand for an Azimut yacht, making them incredibly successful. Consistency, novelty, and artisan are words that come to mind when describing an Azimut.
“In this business, you get a lot of people who wear different shirts over the course of their career and change the direction they go in. I may have changed the color of mine over the years, but it’s always been the same brand, the same person under the skin.” Marco Valle- Italian Managing Director of Azimut.
The Italian long-range yachts date back to 1969. A young entrepreneur and college student named Paolo Vitelli originally founded the company in the center of the northern Tuscan Riviera, as a sailboat charter business. Since then, they have managed to become one of the most revered shipyards in the world. In 1985 Azimut made waves as they absorbed Benetti’s prestigious shipyard, propelling them into the larger superyacht realm they were destined for. With the acquisition of Benetti, Azimut reached new heights, or more appropriately new lengths, with their yacht production vastly increasing in size alongside their clientele.
