Yachting has become an integral part of the luxury lifestyle not only in the Middle East but all over the world. Extraordinary designs and disruptive innovation is what truly reflects the core value of a yacht and Azimut Yachts, part of the Azimut|Benetti Group, has proven itself by delivering exceptional design and cutting edge technology in every product category.

This year Azimut Yachts commemorates the fiftieth anniversary and to celebrate in style, the Company has put together a glittering calendar of international events unfolding over the next 12 months.

The first one took place in Dubai, hosted at the Bulgari Yacht Club & Marina, on the 22nd and the 23rd of February 2019, with two days of happenings, visits aboard Azimut Yachts’ newest models and an exclusive evening with a Gala dinner full of major surprises.

New York, Cannes, and Hong Kong will follow, with a grand finale at the Italian Azimut Headquarters in December.

Over 150 guests graced the ‘Golden Anniversary’ celebrations from across the MEA region while witnessing the new gems in the Azimut collection: Azimut Grande 25 

Metri and Azimut S7. Azimut Grande 25 Metri is the perfect blend of charm and technology. With its sleek, weightless contours and spacious interiors, it is cleverly built using Carbon-Tech while optimizing its efforts to increase internal space in parallel to reduced consumption. For the interiors, renowned Italian designer Achille Salvagni offers a non-conventional take that highlights the decidedly informal and original personality of the model. 


Azimut S7 is a new model in the Azimut Yachts sport collection. At 21 meters in length, Azimut S7 has been designed to deliver new standards of class and refinement, proposing superior carbon fiber construction, including three Volvo IPS 1050 propulsion units, the latest technology in terms of marine propulsion, each equipped with an 800 hp engine. 

Commenting on Azimut Yachts longstanding history, Mr. Ahmad Al Ameeri, General Manager at Seas & Deserts, Azimut Yachts’ exclusive Gulf dealer, said “The Gulf region is one of Azimut’s primary markets and nothing makes us happier than being the first to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of successful business in the yachting industry. Azimut Yachts has always provided its customers with outstanding service across the world while forging multiple exclusive collaborations with the finest international architects and designers. With this milestone, Azimut promises to keep up to the expectations of its customers as a global leader with growth in distinctive designs and styles of motor yachts. We look forward for our guests to join us to celebrate our success.”
