About Benetti Yachts

Company
142 years of history, more than 300 boats built, over 300,000 sq m (3.229.173 sq.ft) of production facilities at six shipyards in Italy and 45 yachts under construction at the present time, including 3 giga yachts of 90 mt and longer. These facts and figures unambiguously demonstrate the momentum of Benetti’s growth and Clients’ unrestrained confidence in the brand.

Values
Every day, since 1873 we have been celebrating Italian excellence adding thought, research and development to the ingenuity of our hands.

Our heritage
Benetti is one of the oldest builders of luxury motoryachts in the world.
Established by Lorenzo Benetti in 1873, the company began life building wooden boats used for local and international trade. After the death of Lorenzo, his two sons Gino and Emilio took over the management of the boatyard. They changed its name to Fratelli Benetti and quickly built up a reputation that extended beyond the Mediterranean. After the Second World War, with the disappearance of commercial sailing vessels built from wood, Benetti changed direction and began producing pleasure craft made from steel. Then in the early 1960s the boatyard produced its first luxury mega yachts.Since 1980 the fleet has included big motor yachts in the 30 to 60 meter range and beyond, not least the famous 86-meter ‘Nabila’.

In 1985 the Boatyard was acquired by the celebrated Turin-based boat builder Azimut Spa, which brought in new management and transformed Benetti into the modern, technologically advanced reality we know today: a forward-looking and innovative boatyard, but also one that proudly retains its traditional values of experience, skill and a passion for fine craftsmanship.

Quality
Our mission is to deliver a product built to the highest quality standards recognised by the international megayacht industry.

This is why we are meticulous in our application of the Benetti Quality System, which comprises a pool of experts and specialist managers who perform over 1,000 quality checks and tests even on medium-sized yachts.

This is achieved by complying precisely with technical specifications, with the requirements of register and classification entities and, most importantly, with the Owner’s expectations, as interpreted by Benetti through its construction capabilities and an Italian love of design.

Aspiring to the highest technical and functional standards, without compromising on appearance and comfort, has always been one of Benetti’s most important goals.
