Ringing in its 50th anniversary, Azimut | Benetti Group has confirmed — for, take note, the 20th time — it’s position once more as top mega-yacht builder in the world, based on the International Global Order Book 2020 ranking of top yacht builders.
With Azimut Yachts and Benetti brands under its umbrella, the Italian mega yacht group is reputed to have outranked globally-acclaimed shipyards, with 101 yachts under construction. These, when put together, total 3,535 metres in length, which is yet another milestone the group has achieved over the past half a century.
Of course, sizing and quality aside, another aspect of Azimut | Benetti Group that has factored heavily into its world-acclaimed repute, is design. A good example of this? The Benetti M/Y “Spectre”.
A 69-metre custom yacht that is all about style, equilibrium, and efficiency, Spectre not only took top place at the Asia Boating Awards 2019 as the “Best Custom-Built Yacht”, but is also recognised globally as among the best yachts at over 100 feet. With sophisticated exterior design styles courtesy of Giorgio M. Cassetta, Spectre offers an interesting — and you’d think impossible — blend of sporty character meets massive size, while interiors offer a sleek modern feel through steel details and sculpted glass.
Already kick starting the year with successes, there is much to look forward to in the upcoming year to come. The group already has plans to introduce the latest new Azimut models to Asia, including the stunning new S Range sisters — S10 and S8 — and the Azimut 78 Flybridge, all of which were recently launched at the Cannes Yachts Festival in September. After a year of successful deliveries, regional awards, and breakthroughs in the region, who knows what 2020 will hold?
