The Azimut-Benetti Group conquered the title of Shipyard of the Year during the World Yacht Trophies night, alongside four other recognitions.
Benetti won the Best Interior Design (38-50m) with its 50m Seven, collaborated with Bannenberg & Rowell Design. Azimut achieved a trophy for innovation with the S6; Best Interior Design in the segment of 14-18.5m and 24-38m with the Azimut 55 Fly and Grande 32 Metri respectively, both bearing signature of Achille Salvagni; and the highlight – Shipyard of the year.
“These prizes underline how the success of the Group is strictly connected to the strength of our products, which have distinguished themselves in all the segments and for both brands,” commented Giovanni Vitelli, Vice President of the Azimut-Benetti Group.
“The Shipyard of the year title arrives from the power of our products, from the solidity and consistency of our vision, as well as from the passion and energy of the people working with and for us, most of which have been beside us for many years. It is to them that I wish to dedicate this recognition.”
