Azimut Benetti earned two awards at the Cannes Yachting Festival, which wrapped up Sunday in France.

The Azimut Grande 95RPH, a 95-foot raised pilothouse yacht, was awarded the Most Achieved Trophy in the category of yachts from 24 to 36 meters.

The new sporty Azimut 77S was awarded the prize for Best Exterior Design in the category of yachts from 15 to 24 meters.

Organized by the French publishing group LuxMediaGroup and judged by a panel of experts belonging to the steering committee of the publishing network, the World Yacht Trophy is one of the most important awards in the European nautical sector.

The awards ceremony was held on Saturday in the Carlton Hotel in Cannes.

"We are very proud to have received this prestigious award once again," Azimut Benetti board member Giovanna Vitelli said in a statement. "A further sign that our unremitting efforts in terms of research and innovation are visible and appreciated not only by the market, but also by leading experts in the industry."

At Cannes, the Italian group showcased 22 models and had four world premieres.
