Azimut Yachts unveils dealer network in Brazil


Through Azimut Brazil, the brands Azimut Yachts and Atlantis now have a specialized dealer network to meet Brazilian demand.

In order to provide full support to its customers in the national territory, the Azimut shipyard in Brazil, a subsidiary of the Italian Azimut-Benetti Group, provides the Azimut Dealer Network in several Brazilian states aligned with specialized services and support direct from the factory. With this new strategy, Azimut Brazil becomes the first nautical company in the country of international origin.

The new dealer network will provide Brazilian customers with specialized technical assistance, replenishment of parts and maintenance, after sales and consultancy on all stages of buying, from financial and administrative activities to the selection and training of crew.

"In 2010 the Azimut-Benetti Group has established a broad structure in the country in order to get closer to its customers and assist them in all their needs,” Azimut do Brasil CEO Davide Breviglieri said in a statement. “Our focus is to become increasingly Brazilian, bringing new trends and the excellence typically Italian to the nautical industry.”
