Azimut Benetti boats honored at Cannes Boat Show


The Azimut Benetti Group was honored twice at a dinner gala at the Cannes Boat Show, where the company premiered three models. The Azimut 80 received the award for “Most Functional Yacht in the 24- to 50-meter range” and the Benetti Ocean Paradise won in the “Best Interior Design over 50 meters” category.

Organized by the French publishing group LuxMediaGroup, the World Yachts Trophies are given on the basis of evaluations by a panel of specialized experts.

"We are very proud of the awards given here on the occasion of the Cannes boat show, which marks the opening of the boat shows season,” Azimut Benetti Group marketing director Francesco Ansalone said in a statement. “The awards were given to two particularly innovative models for our shipyards and in which we have invested significant resources in terms of research and development. These awards demonstrate that our unremitting efforts are recognized by leading industry experts, a debut which we hope will be a prelude to the full appreciation by the market.”
