AZIMUT BENETTI is the world’s top mega Yacht builder

Category:

For the 19th year running, Azimut|Benetti Group, led by Paolo and Giovanna Vitelli, confirms its place in the highly-reputed Global Order Book ranking as the world’s top builder of mega yachts, with 97 projects totaling 3,536 meters in length under construction, far exceeding the other players. 

Behind this extraordinary result are the key assets on which the Group has built its history: the ongoing quest driven by ground-breaking technology to innovate and push boundaries, the ability to attract talented designers, a history of financial solidity and, not least, a broad-based distribution and assistance network with worldwide coverage. 

The Group ended the 2017/18 yachting season with value of production standing at €850 million (+18% on the previous year) 

The Global Order Book, the ranking drawn up each year by highly-reputed UK magazine Boat International, reports on industry trends for yachts over 80 feet long based on actual order data available and, once again in 2019, crowned Azimut|Benetti Group as the world’s top builder of mega yachts, with a stunning 97 yachts over 24 meters long under construction (+26% vs 2018), or a total of 3,536 meters (+24,5% vs 2018).

The key ingredient in yet another success in this long line was the ability to carry on innovating in terms of both technology and design. 

With its two brands, the Group has shown an extraordinary ability to work with clients to satisfy their demands for ever bigger yachts, as is demonstrated by the remarkable adventure of the three new Benetti giga yachts that will be launched and delivered to their owners in the coming months. 

Great financial solidity, which is essential when yachts this size are involved, and the dependability of the Vitelli family and Benetti’s management team proved once again to be winning assets. 

Paolo and Giovanna Vitelli, Group Chairman and Vice-Chairman respectively, commented:

This important result encourages us to carry on along our path. The only force that will never run out in our company is the desire always to exceed our limits. We are proud of our contribution to making Italy great in the international yachting industry!

The announcement made by the Global Order Book brings a year of important acknowledgements and awards to a close and represents the best possible start to the 2019 season, which will be marked by celebrations of the 50th anniversary of a Group that has left an indelible mark on the history of world yachting. 

Azimut|Benetti Group closed fiscal 2017/18 reporting value of production at €850 million (+18% on the previous year).
