"It's a pleasure to be honored as Super Luxury Yacht Star Performer by Hurun Report, one of the most influential entrepreneurship magazines in China,” Benetti Asia general manager Luigi Adamo said in a statement.

“As Benetti we are the first one from superyacht industry to set up office in Asia dedicated to the region,” Adamo said. “Due to our high commitment in APAC, we have achieved an outstanding goal with a fleet of Benetti superyachts ranged between 93 feet and 65 meters.

We are certainly very proud of the result today and confident that the market share will grow rapidly in the future with our great efforts."
