The Azimut-Benetti Group was named “Shipyard of the Year” at the Cannes Yachting Festival, which took place Sept 11-16. The group also earned four other awards during World Yacht Trophies night at the conclusion of this year’s show, including an innovation award in the 14m-18.5m category for the S6, which debuted at the Cannes show; Best Interior Design in the 38m-50m category for M/Y Seven; Best Interior Design in the 24m-38m category for the Azimut Grande 32, and Best Interior Design in the 14m-18.5m category for the Azimut 55 Fly.

“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,” stated Giovanni Vitelli, vice president of the Azimut-Benetti Group. “It is to them that I wish to dedicate this recognition.”
