Benetti appoints GM for megayachts division

ADVERTISEMENT

Azimut Benetti has appointed Christos Ramnialis general manager of its Megayachts Business Line Benetti division.

Ramnialis has partnered with Benetti for more than a decade as head of the Global Sales and Service Group of MTU/Rolls Royce Power Systems, where he served for 16 years. He was born in Greece and has a degree in mechanical engineering from Darmstadt in Germany.

In related company news, Azimut Benetti was chosen to build a 35m motor yacht for the city of Tokyo to host official presentations and conferences. The yacht will be built at the company’s Livorno shipyard, with delivery planned for December 2018.

Azimut Benetti worked with Verme Yacht Design consultants on the development of the structural design and the hull shape. The boat is designed to reach a maximum speed of 25 knots. The city requires a conference table seating 35 with an interpreter booth and a Japanese-style reception room.

A water-jet propulsion system will be used to keep the draught of the boat below 1.25m so it can navigate the shallow waters in Tokyo Bay. The height of the boat cannot exceed 11m from the waterline to enable the yacht to pass under bridges in the area. A special retractable aerial has been designed to satisfy this need.

The shipyard has assigned a dedicated team to the order, coordinated by Project Manager Fortunato Di Marco.
