Istanbul, January 2016. Product and brand innovation. These are the drivers behind the
plans for the coming three years of Azimut Yachts, the Azimut|Benetti Group brand
dedicated to the construction of luxury motor yachts. The planning process was made easier
by strong growth reported by the Group, with a 11% increase in value of production from
611 million euros in 2013-14 to 680 million in 2014-15.
These results are confirmed by its constant leadership over the last 16 years in the world
ranking for new 24 meters and longer yachts under construction (2016 Global Order Book
published by Show Boats).
Azimut Yachts has given a crucial contribution to Group growth, reporting rising turnover,
from 243 million euros in 2013-2014 to over 300 million this year, according to estimates,
representing an improvement of 23%, and a remarkable annual production of 300 yachts.
In order to maintain its leading role, the company’s development program includes plans to
launch a full 14 new models over the coming three years across the five collections in the
range.
Constant renewal is the key to success, as demonstrated by sales results reported for the new
Azimut 72 and Azimut Magellano 66 models, which were presented this season at Cannes and
already sold out.
A total of 72 Azimut Atlantis 43 has also been sold since its 2015 launch!
The extensive use of carbon fiber is a construction choice that allows volumes and surfaces
to be increased in size while keeping the same weight, therefore maintaining excellent
levels of dynamic stability.
The latest trends from Milano Salone del Mobile-Furniture Show have been taken on
board, inspiring the furnishing and décor in a style that reflects an exquisitely Italian sense of
history, heritage and culture. Examples are the heat-treated oak, elegant figured sycamore
and highly prized maple, enhanced with an ultra-glossy varnish in the finest tradition of Italian
handcraftsmanship.
During the conference have been unveiled the first images of the new Azimut Grande 115,
unique and fabulous mega yachts, that will be presented this year.
