Azimut Yachts has a long history in the yacht-building industry – having produced luxury motor yachts since 1969. And today, the Italian shipbuilder is a leading megayacht producer – one of the most revered shipyards in the world.
What’s not to love? Azimut yachts have a signature sleek, athletic look. The company’s tri-deck and flybridge motor yachts are works of art, with clean flowing lines and signature four panel windows in the hull. (That’s a signature you’ll notice on all of Azimut’s yachts.)
Inside, the shipyard’s yachts are just as awe-inspiring. Azimut’s designers produce interiors that are wrapped in high-end materials and loads of contemporary Italian style – making the perfect place to entertain and unwind while on charter.
Azimut’s Storied History in Italian Shipbuilding
Azimut was founed in 1969 by Paolo Vitelli, but originally, the company specialized in sailboat charters. In fact, they didn’t begin producing their own yachts for about 20 years.
In the 1970s, Azimut expanded into yacht design, developing its unique design language – athletic, chic and upscale. In 1970, for example, Azimut partnered with Ameri-glass, a Dutch shipyard, designing the AZ 43’ Bali, a yacht that earned great acclaim.
In the mid-1980s, Azimut acquired Benetti and began producing its own luxury motor yachts. In the last three decades, Azimut has produced some of the world’s most revered yachts.
Currently, the Torino-based company’s range includes: sports cruisers, flybridge yachts and superyachts. The Grande Collection – its 27-, 30- and 35-meter vessels – feature the best of the best in megayacht design, with sporty exteriors and luxurious interiors.
