For Benetti, building yachts means carrying on the tradition of innovation, style and quality that has shaped the company's approach and culture. It means continuing to diversify production in order to satisfy the increasingly complex needs expressed by owners throughout the world.
Benetti has a time-honoured tradition in yacht building. After abandoning wood and being the first to realise the potential of composite materials for the production of super yachts, as early as the 1960s it made the transition from metal boats to the steel and aluminium used today.
Today Benetti utilizes these materials, alone or combined, to design and build full-custom displacement and semi-displacement motoryachts in a broad variety of lengths from 93 feet to more than 90 meters. These truly tailor made vessels embody the Owner's idea of what a yacht should be, while retaining the Benetti family-feeling that is a natural expression of the finest Italian style and timeless elegance.
This production capacity, united with world class quality, fanatical attention to detail and a perfect end result, have made Benetti a world leader and an Italian luxury yacht icon.
For owners it is vitally important to know that they are buying from a financially strong and stable company. In addition, the ability to make independent business decisions has enabled Azimut|Benetti Group to plan organic growth, allowing it to look to the future with confidence and optimism.
Today Azimut Benetti Group provides guarantees of strength and stability, both particularly important factors for Mega yacht Clients involved in long term construction projects.
Benetti is specialized in building semi displacement and displacement megayacht up to 100 metres.
The historical shipyard founded in 1873, has been acquired by the Group in 1985. In its long history, Benetti has evolved more than any other competitor in its market segment, producing more than 300 yachts and specializing in the production of composite lines, Benetti Class, from 93' to 145', and steel and aluminium megayachts from 45 meters, totally customized according to the owner's wishes and requests..
