Azimut Benetti Group held a yachting gala last weekend on the island of Capri in Italy.

The group said more than 700 clients arrived from around the world for sea trials, special events and tours.

The Marina Grande played host to 22 yachts that represented the group’s entire range. Guests experienced the yachts at sea in the waters off the Faraglioni, the Arco Naturale, Marina Piccola bay and in many other locations.

The gala is a private boat show for the group’s top clients. It is designed to give them the chance to explore yachts launched on international markets at the Cannes, Miami and Dubai boat shows, including the Azimut 66 Fly, the new yacht in its category; the Azimut 72 Fly, with a structure made entirely from carbon fiber; the Azimut Magellano 66, the latest model in the long-range Italian style collection; the Azimut Grande 95RPH, which made its debut last season; and two Benetti yachts in the Fast Displacement line, Benetti Vivace 125 and Benetti Veloce 140.

The gala also provided an opportunity to celebrate the company’s partnership with Rolls-Royce and its futuristic Azipull Carbon 65 pod propulsion system, which has already been fitted to the Vivace 125.
