Azimut named World’s Leading Yacht Manufacturer

Azimut has taken first place in the Global Order Book 2016 – which ranks the top 20 manufacturers of mega yachts. This is the 16th year that Azimut has been named the world’s leading yacht manufacturer, while beating the rest of the important industry players from Italy, Germany, Britain and America. The Global Order Book 2016 reported that a record-breaking 2,580 metres vessels measuring over 24 meters were built in the Azimut | Benetti Group’s six production plants.

The ranking is compiled annually by Show Boats International. Every year, it provides an accurate performance report, publishing information on actual orders, for yachts measuring 80 feet up, confirmed by September 1, of the year in question.

Its 2,580 metres yachts under construction confirm the outstanding success of the Italian company’s models, which meet the needs of boat owners around the world. The Azimut | Benetti Group offers the most comprehensive range of products, and has recently even expanded into the field of “Giga Yachts”, with vessels measuring over 100 meters now under construction at the Benetti shipyard in Livorno.

Such a long-standing success can only come from the meticulous and constant development and improvement of its products and their production process.
