Azimut 55 Fly, which premiered in Düsseldorf 2018, and Azimut Grande 32 Metri, the premiere of the Cannes Film Festival, were awarded the title “Best Interior Design”. The interior of both yachts belongs to the genius of world-renowned designer Achille Salvani, whose skill in creating an emphasis on material quality and a combination of proportions is considered a reference.
“These awards emphasize how strongly the success of the Azimut Benetti Group group of companies is related to the quality of our yachts, which received awards in all segments, like every brand.” Commented Giovanni Vitelli, Vice President of the company.
“The title of the Shipyard of the Year,” continues Vitelli, “is obtained only because of the quality of our yachts, the integrity of the vision, and the enthusiastic work and energy of the people working for the company, or for the company. With many of them we have passed shoulder to shoulder for many years. To them I would like to dedicate this recognition of success, this award. "
