The Italian company is the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end yachts according to the Global Order Book 2017, the ranking of top boat builders across the globe recently published by the prestigious American magazine ShowBoats International.
Azimut Benetti Group reported a record-breaking 2,594 meters (8,511 ft) of yachts measuring over 24 meters under construction at the Group’s six production plants.
The strength of Azimut Benetti Group, which closed fiscal 2015-2016 reporting value of production of €700 million, lies in its ongoing investments in product development combined with the role it plays as a standard-bearer for Italian quality and yacht building excellence worldwide.
Leading luxury motor yacht manufacturer Azimut|Benetti Group is once again at the top of the Global Order Book 2017 ranking of the world’s 20 most important megayacht manufacturers.
With a total of 2,594 meters (8,511 ft) of Azimut Yachts and Benetti boats under construction and 65 projects in progress, the Italian Shipyard confirms its leadership thanks to the world’s most comprehensive range of models, with vessels measuring over 100 meters now under construction at the Benetti shipyard in Livorno.
Such long-standing success is the result of constant development and improvement of its products and their production processes, with a focus on innovation and technology that has always been a feature of the company’s DNA. First-rate projects, along with industrially and financially viable shipyards, are the key factors in achieving this result.
The Global Order Book confirms its authoritative standing, providing an accurate annual performance report and publishing information on actual orders for yachts measuring 80 feet in length and over.
