Azimut. It’s a name that simply shouts ‘luxury’ in every way, and we have a grand total of three stunning Azimut yachts for you to share on a fractional basis. Here’s some insight into a yacht brand that has more than fifty years of excellence behind it, still going strong and still one of the world’s best-respected yacht designers and builders. Will you choose an Azimut yacht to share based in Mallorca, Cape Town, or Miami and Fort Lauderdale?
About Azimut – The ultimate in luxurious Italian style
Azimut Yachts started life in 1969 thanks to the university student Paolo Vitelli, who founded a company chartering sailing boats. When, in 1970, a handful of world-class yacht brands appointed his company to distribute their boats in Italy, Vitelli never looked back. Azimut expanded quickly, soon taking on a whole lot more than yacht distribution. Their very first yacht design, a collaboration with Amerglass, was the AZ 43’ Bali, a hugely popular mass-produced fibreglass boat.
Starting off at the low end of the market, the company expanded gradually. The AZ 32’ Targa in 1977 proved the Model T Ford of the yacht world, and the luxury market soon saw the first Azimut craft in the shape of the wonderful Azimut 105’ Failaka in 1982. She fast became the world’s biggest mass-produced fibreglass yacht.
By the time they bought Benetti in 1985 Azimut had well and truly arrived. From then until now the company has defined a suite of new styles and standards designed to revolutionised the sector. Massive frameless windows, electric seats, real walnut interiors, they’re all an Azimut thing.
New boatyards at Fano, restructured Benetti boatyards at Viareggio, plus a new site in Turin makes Azimut one of the world’s best yacht and megayacht builders. These days they also have sites in Brazil, and their unique Advanced Quality Control Program means every single craft they release is perfect in every way.
So what do we have for you in the way of Azimut masterpieces?
