Azimut has a long history in yacht building. Founded in 1969 by Paolo Vitelli, the brand is built on a history of excellence. Italian ingenuity and attention to detail ensure that you won’t regret enjoying the open waters in an Azimut. Fino all'ultimo dettaglio means “to the last detail.” Those are the words Azimut Yachts lives by.
In the 1970s, Azimut began to design new yachts in addition to distribution. In a joint venture with Amerglass, it designed the AZ 43’ Bali, a mass-produced fiberglass boat that was an immediate success. The company was able to expand by focusing on the lower end of the market, with the launch of the AZ 32’ Targa in 1977. The brand also focused on the high-end with the Azimut 105’ Failaka in 1982, which was the biggest mass-produced fiberglass yacht of its time. In 1985, Azimut acquired Benetti. Benetti Yachts is another historical brand. They’re based in Viareggio and had been building boats since 1873.
