The Italian manufacturer of luxury Italian sport yachts, Azimut, was established in 1969 by Paolo Vitelli and is based near Turin in Avigliana. Initially operating in chartering sail boats, the Azimut brand has developed to become one of the largest luxury yacht manufacturers today. Azimut Yachts became successful with their first major contract at the shipyard of Amerglass, a modern Dutch shipyard producing boats in fibreglass. This was followed by other successful contracts with Westerly, British Powles and Draco, who appointed Azimut Yachts to distribute their own boats in Italy. Soon after the success of these projects, Azimut Yachts started to build and market Azimut yachts for sale. In 1985 Azimut successfully merged with another luxury boat building company, Benetti. The design and construction of power boats and luxury motor boats, has led Azimut -Benetti to become one of the leading builders of custom super yachts globally.
