Azimut|Benetti at the Palm Beach International Boat Show 2022
The Azimut|Benetti Group will exhibit a selection of its most innovative yachts against the striking backdrop of Flagler Drive at the fortieth edition of the Palm Beach International Boat Show which takes place from Thursday 24 to Sunday 27 March.
Azimut| Benetti's presence at the boat show reflects the strategic importance of the American market to the Italian group's business. With an established local structure and a network that includes the continent's leading dealers, Azimut continues to perform strongly in the United States, with a year-on-year increase in volume of 65%. The interest its boats are attracting among a growing number of American owners was the impetus behind the brand's decision to reinvest in the market in the near future, and to display eight yachts at Palm Beach.
The Palm Beach boat show is always an opportunity to wow visitors and for Benetti, it represents a valuable occasion to meet up with clients, both longstanding and more recent, and to establish new relationships with potential owners looking to fulful their dream of possessing a Benetti yacht.
The American market is dynamic, competitive and extremely relevant, and the Palm Beach International Boat Show is the ideal platform to showcase Azimiut|Benetti yachts and the brands' pioneering design innovations.
Azimut's partnership with MarineMax continues and together they will present the new Azimut Flybridge 68, which makes its American debut. Technological innovation, design excellence and sustainability are in the brand's DNA and they can be seen in action on the Palm Beach stage. The Azimut Flybridge 68 is a cosmopolitan yacht with a choice of three internal layouts, allowing owners to select the one that best reflects their onboard lifestyle. The company's commitment to continuously developing more sustainable solutions can be seen in the extensive use of carbon. This makes for a more lightweight superstructure which in turn optimises engine performance, while the hull design offers less resistance, resulting in reduced fuel consumption or increased range.
The spotlight will also fall on the Verve 42 and Verve 47, both of which are revolutionising the sector and have already amassed over 80 orders. Also on show is the Grande Trideck, which met with an enthusiastic reception at the Miami Boat Show where it was among the winners in the 2022 Innovation Awards. The pioneering vision behind its spatial layout, which created never-before-seen areas such as the sea view terrace and private patio, were certainly key to its success and plaudits. Making up the Azimut fleet at Flagler Drive are the Sportfly version of the S6 with its generous additional lounge area on the upper deck, the Azimut 60, Azimut 78 and Grande 27M and Grande Trideck.
The Palm Beach International Boat Show represents the opportunity for Benetti to present Bacchanal, a sleek 47-metre custom megayacht with clean lines that create a sense of understated elegance.
Its stainless steel hull and aluminium superstructure contain a layout subdivided across four decks, designed with a pleasing uniformity of spaces that eliminate traditional boundaries between inside and out. This vision of a continuous flow between environments is perfectly crystallised on the Main Deck where the natural light that illuminates the interiors combines with the continuous visual contact with the outside to produce the extraordinary sensation of living in the open air. Among the myriad of stunning features is an elegant custom-designed swimming pool clad in Sicis mosaics in the bow of the Sun Deck. Also worthy of particular note are the interiors by Mauricio Gómez de Tuddo and the Benetti Style Department, who have together created a design and style that delivers an effortlessly international allure.
