Established by Lorenzo Benetti in 1873, Benetti is one of the oldest builders of luxury motoryachts in the world. While the company initially had roots based in crafting wooden boats for local and international trade, the disappearance of commercial wooden sailing vessels after the Second World War launched the Benetti brand into the world of luxury mega-yachts in the 1960’s.

The rest is superyacht history. Benetti has now constructed over 350 boats and has over 300,000 sq. ft. of production facilities at three shipyards in Italy. With 35 yachts currently under construction, including three gigayachts over 100 metres, Benetti has managed to flawlessly transform into a modern luxury yacht powerhouse.

In 1985 the Boatyard was acquired by Azimut Spa, a brand that has revolutionized the boating industry. This dynamic union ensures that Benetti will continue its rich custom of retaining the traditional values of experience, expertise, and fine craftsmanship that has given the company phenomenal growth throughout history, while moving forward as a technologically advanced motoryacht trailblazer for years to come.
