On January 20, 2018, at the 2018 Düsseldorf International Boat Show, Azimut S7 was named the overall winner of the prestigious “European Power Boat of the Year 2018” (EPY) award in the “over 45 feet” category.


One of the undisputed assets of the model, which was unveiled last September at the Cannes Boat Show, is its highly innovative layout. The exteriors, designed by Stefano Righini, embellish the characteristic lines of the brand’s collection with diamond-shaped deckhouse windows, in a solution that gives the boat character and promises to amaze with its plays of reflected light. The S7 is the only yacht in its segment with four spacious cabins, a beach platform expander and a garage for both tender and jet ski. Available in both coupé and sportfly versions, it surprises with its sumptuous materials and the unusual interior design by Francesco Guida.

At the prestigious German boat show, the Italian yacht builder is showing six models, including two absolute novelties: Atlantis 51 and Azimut Flybridge 55. The preview also provides an opportunity to take stock of the situation since the start of the yachting season (September 2017), which for Azimut Yachts has been a very good one, with the brand reporting order book growth of +30% against the same period the previous year.



This year at Boot Düsseldorf, Pearl Yachts will be introducing its unique five-year comprehensive warranty programme, an industry leading offer for new boat sales.  Following its launch in November 2017 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the Pearl 80 will be introduced to Europe. To coincide with its 20th anniversary, Pearl Yachts will be entering the superyacht sector with its flagship vessel, the 30m Pearl 95, to be unveiled throughout Europe this summer.



Azimut Yachts strengthens its hand in Austria and Germany with a new exclusive dealer to handle these two markets.

Azimut Yachts Austria&Germany is managed on an exclusive basis by YachtWerk, a newco with headquarters in Bavaria that draws on collaboration and synergy between the brand’s storied dealer Timone Yachts and Splendid Yachting, a team of German yacht market professionals specialising in sales, customer care and after-sales service.


The choice of a new dealer to handle these two key markets for Azimut Yachts reflects the new brand strategy, La Dolce Vita 3.0, and the new team will be working hard to promote its values, energy and enthusiasm.


The management of Timone Yachts has been working with Azimut for many years, gaining an intimate knowledge of the product and a deep understanding of the key factors in the brand strategy. Timone Yachts also brings the company many years’ experience in the industry, multi-faceted synergy in the service area and an international organisation that covers the entire Italian Adriatic coastline. The YachtWerk team is German, young and professional.


This winning combination will therefore offer premium-level assistance, in terms of both coverage and the efficiency and effectiveness of the resources involved.



Benetti is proud to announce the sale of its seventh Fast 125’ unit, BF107, a 38-meter yacht with exterior styling by Stefano Righini and equipped with the Azipull Carbon 65 propulsion system designed by Rolls Royce.

BF107, ordered by a Turkish owner, belongs to the Benetti Fast product family that has been such a success since its launch, selling a total of seven units to date. The main feature of the series is the AZP C65 propulsion system, which was developed jointly with Rolls Royce and embodies the most advanced technology on the market. A total of 38.1 meters in length, BF107 has four decks and five guest cabins.



The partnership between the shipyard’s new dealer and Cantieri Estensi Yachts, started a few months ago, proceeds successfully with great satisfaction, from both sides, for the first achievements, such as the increasing number of visits to the new website and the Maine 645 sale at the past Cannes Yachting Festival.

Congress and shows

During the Cannes Yachting Festival which runs from 12 to 17 September, Azimut Yachts in Azimut Benetti Group, the world’s leading private group in the yachting world, presents four new models: Azimut Grande 35METRI, Azimut Grande 27METRI, Azimut S7 and Azimut 60 Fly.

Each yacht bears the unmistakable hallmark of longtime Azimut designer Stefano Righini, known for his innovative concepts, and features interiors by Achille Salvagni and Francesco Guida.

All four models, which have already aroused significant sales interest, represent the epitome of innovation, technology and design in their respective segments and are destined to be leading players at this autumn’s key boat shows.*

Azimut Grande 35METRI and Azimut Grande 27METRI are the new additions to the brand’s elite range, the Grande Collection. The use of carbon fibre means greater on board space without sacrificing static and dynamic stability levels. The 35Metri, the collection’s new flagship, boasts an exceptionally streamlined internal design, characterised by the master suite’s unique swivelling balcony, which opens out directly onto the sea.

The Grande 27METRI features a wide body with full beam master suite on the main deck and a choice of three or four cabins on the lower deck, a layout practically unheard of in yachts of this size.

The superior technology of the Azimut S7 has revolutionised the sporting motor yacht concept not only with its use of carbon fibre but also its non-conventional approach to spatial distribution. The S7, comprising two versions (Coupé and Sportfly), boasts a wonderfully innovative interior design created by Francesco Guida in his debut collaboration with Azimut, unprecedented spaciousness below deck and three Volvo IPS engines.

Last but certainly not least, the sleek, bold and eye-catching Azimut 60 Flybridge is a striking yacht, with its unusually large flybridge and stunning interiors of the sort usually found on mega yachts. Features include full-height windows and a series of lounge areas which create tiny islands of privacy, a luxury seldom found in boats of this size.

The Cannes Yachting Festival, which opens the international boat show season, sees a fleet of 19 yachts from the Italian shipyard on show, ranging from 10 to 40 metres. It also marks the global debut of the company’s new brand strategy: La Dolce Vita 3.0, which brings together luxury, joie de vivre and Made in Italy at the state-of-the-art, the hallmark characteristics of the Azimut Yachts brand.

Choosing Azimut Yachts means entering a world in which an unparalleled level of technological research and a matchless attention to comfort are combined with that inimitable Italian style which has captivated the world since time immemorial.

On top of this, the four new models can also lay claim to a stunning aesthetic born of the collaboration between internationally renowned interior designers Salvagni and Guida and longstanding Azimut Yachts partner Stefano Righini.

The Cannes Yachting Festival will also provide an opportunity to present the team from Azimut Yachts France, the new exclusive dealer in one of the brand’s key European markets.

But that’s not the end of the news on the commercial front: Azimut Yachts is consolidating its presence in Europe with new dealerships in the UK, as well as entering new waters with its launch on two promising new markets, Slovenia and Lithuania, involving the creation of Azimut Yachts Slovenia and Azimut Yachts Lithuania. In the United Kingdom, Azimut Yachts has entrusted its distribution to Southampton-based Azimut Yachts UK, who are charged with the task of transmitting the Italian brand’s DNA to the Anglo-Saxon market.
