Walk this way for Italian inspiration, created with skill and dedication every step of the way. If it’s a Benetti, it’s a love thing.
About Benetti Yachts
The Benetti shipyard’s history involves two famous Italian shipyards, Fratelli Benetti, founded in Viareggio in 1873, and the Fratelli Orlando shipyard, founded in 1866 in Livorno. Together they created ‘amazing’, and the company has been doing it ever since
Timeless, beautiful, powerful luxury yachts
Benetti yachts are so much more than a pretty face. They’re designed to withstand the toughest conditions at sea, keeping you comfortable and safe. Timeless styling means they transcend fashion, standing the test of time. And because every single boat they build is designed to exceed the owners’ expectations, every voyage is sheer joy. Cutting-edge hybrid tech delivers sustainability in a world where a light environmental touch matters.
Meet some of the most famous legacy Benetti yachts
In July 2022, the brand launched the greenest model in its class, the Benetti B.YOND 37M, a glittering new star in the Voyager series. No wonder they’re such a big attraction at world-class events like the Cannes Yachting Festival. It’s the latest in a string of record breakers and trend-setters. Have you seen the famous portrait of Prince Rainier III with Grace Kelly on the Benetti Gabbiano in the bay of Monte Carlo, for example? Like its passengers, the Gabbiano was an icon.
Benetti switched from wood to steel in 1961, effectively inventing the modern Luxury Motor Yacht as we know it. Their innovation was wildly successful. In 1979 they launched the extraordinary 86m long Nabila, built for the Saudi businessman Adnan Khashoggi, who wanted to own the planet’s most modern and luxurious motor yacht. It was such a phenomenon that Freddy Mercury sang about it. The song Khashoggi’s Ship appeared on Queen’s album, The Miracle, revealing tales of the legendary parties held on board. In the early 1980s, Sean Connery played James Bond in Never Say Never Again, a movie starring scenes filmed on board the Nabila.
A change of ownership refreshes the brand
After 111 years in the same family, 1985 saw the Azimut group, owned by Paolo Vitelli, buying the Benetti Shipyard and bringing the brand to even more vibrant life. In 1998 the brand released its Luxury Pocket Yacht, setting off on a unique journey that saw the yard launch more than 160 beautiful new yachts in just 15 years. And in 2000 the Benetti Reverie arrived, a full 70m of luxurious excellence with a sleek, elegant design by Stefano Natucci.
In 2020 the first yachts to break Benetti’s 100m barrier were born: the awesome 107m Luminosity, the remarkable 107m Lana, and the dramatic 108m IJE. All three giga-yachts were launched in 100 days.
Today the Benetti brand’s trademarks include pioneering tech, future-led creative design collaborations, the very highest standards, and all the iconic elegance you expect from a master shipbuilder with almost 150 years of experience behind it. One of Europe’s oldest and best-loved luxury yacht builders, Benetti’s contemporary portfolio covers everything from semi-custom to wholly custom yachts and superyachts made from FRP, aluminium, and steel. The legend carries on.
