June 03, 2014


Azimut Yachts's innovative ability and design excellence have once again received accolades with a prestigious Honourable Mention at the 23rd ADI Compasso d'Oro Award, one of the world's most renowned international design competitions.

An international jury awarded the Azimut Magellano 50 an ADI Compasso d'Oro Honourable Mention for design. Concept and interior layout are by designer Cor d Rover.

Azimut Yachts joins the prestigious ADI Compasso d'Oro Award Collection, named "A National Treasure" in 2004. The only one of its kind in the world, the collection recounts 60 years of Italian design and naturally bestows prestige on the products it chooses to include.

Azimut's Magellano Collection yachts dedicated to "Italian Long Range" introduce important innovations both in terms of technology and cruising as well as furnishing and interior detailing design; the collection fuses aesthetics and functionality with an elegance and style that is unmistakeably Italian.

"With this award, we make Italian design history," say Francesco Ansalone Azimut|Benetti Group Marketing director. “We are very pleased with this result. It confirms our ability to innovate and carry out applied research on every aspect of our product, which continues to be a winning strategy."

The award ceremony was held in Milan on 28 May 2014 at the former Ansaldo factory, which was also the venue for the exhibition of the products participating in the competition. The exhibition was open for over two months and was well-visited, especially during the Milan International Furniture Exhibition (Salone Internazionale del Mobile).
