Azimut Benetti is the world’s largest private group in the yachting sector
. The majority shareholder is the founder, Paolo Vitelli, who has been firmly in command for 40 years. This fact gives the Group considerable prestige but, more importantly, it gives economic and financial strength. The Group is free to reinvest its profits in production activities without having to give preference to shareholders, funds or parent companies.
For over forty years we have been reinvesting our profits and respond only to our customers.
Grande yachts see the light in Viareggio, around a little Mediterranean piazza facing the private marina that can hold up to 40 yachts of more than 80 feet. The main building is perfectly integrated with the sea and the coastal landscape, comfortable apartments have been created for the crews of the customers and their surveyors. The 40,000 m– in which the facilities are organized alternate teams of skilled craftsmen who build the yachts according to the instructions that the customer and the Personal Design Equipe have worked out together. To complete the work Yachtique is always open: a styling lounge where, besides an exhibition of exclusive refined objects, a 3D configurator shows the same objects in a highly realistic manner, together with infinite combinations of furnishings, textiles and materials set on yachts.
Success that has continued over such a long time can only be sustained if the quality produced is always at the highest level and if the procedures, technologies and designs are constantly updated to reach and exceed the standards required by the market, taking their place as the new benchmarks for the sector.
“Work well” was an expression that might have been acceptable in past decades. Today a quality product is the result of a scientific method, of rigorous rules and procedures which must be respected by all and with the utmost care.
More than work or duty, quality production requires a mental attitude geared to continuous improvement and our products are ultimately the result of this approach
Safety protection of workers, protection of the environment and improvement of product quality intersect and merge in the results achieved by obtaining important certification. Azimut - Benetti Group is proud to have been the first large yacht builder in the world to obtain the environmental certification in November 2007.
