The Global Order Book provides an accurate annual performance report and publishing information on actual orders for yachts measuring 80 feet in length and over.
With a total of 2,594 meters (8,511ft) of Azimut Yachts and Benetti boats under construction and 65 projects in progress in the Group’s six production plants, the Italian shipyard confirms its leadership thanks to the world’s most comprehensive range of models, with vessels measuring over 100 metres now under construction at the Benetti shipyard in Livorno.
The Italian company closed fiscal 2015-2016 reporting value of production of €700 million and attributed its success to its constant development and improvement of its products and 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.
