An Azimut Yacht Boat Brand Review

Azimut Yachts was founded in 1969, not with Yachts but with charter sailboats. The founder, Paolo Vitelli began distributing boats in the 70s, primarily in Italy. And while the beginnings were in distribution, it was not long before the company began to design yachts of their own with the AZ 43’ Bali. Paolo Vitelli attributes his boat building skills not just to the decades of experience that he possesses, but also to the more than hundred year history of his acquired brand, Benetti. Azimut Yachts is one of the leaders in Yachts and mega-Yachts. If you are seeking one of their vessels, here is what you should know about this brand.

The brand is an accumulation of Azimut and Benetti

Though under the name Azimut, the brand is a combination of the boats of Benetti and that of Azimut.  The acquisition listed earlier was done in the 80s, and so many people do not know that Azimuts is a combination of the two. In addition to the building block of Benetti boats, is the experience and perspective of multiple countries as the company has production in several locations, both on the eastern and western hemisphere. The company has sites in Viareggio, Avigliana, Turin, and Brazil.

A system of Innovation

Azimut is the leader in Yachts and Mega-Yachts. As such, the brand must adhere to a high quality standard. Technology and engineering is emphasized through the use of the Azimut Yacht Inovat Lab. One way in which Azimut uses advanced research and innovation is with computerized wind flow and analytic predictions. 10 different multiaxial fabric, open cell foam structure, noise reduction materials, carbon fibers, vacuum infusion, Vynilester Resin Application, CFD and FEA analysis, as well as a hand lay-up lamination process makes the Azimut boats built to extreme levels of durability and luxuriousness.

Apart from the “standard” testing, Azimut uses advanced testing to set themselves apart from the competition. These advanced control measures include Chemical and Physical testing of incoming materials, ultrasound and thermographic GRP testing, DSC analysis, and Wavescan control.
