Azimut/Benetti Present 4 World Premieres at Cannes Boat Show

At the Cannes Boat Show, the Italian Group will be presenting three new Azimut Yachts models and a major Benetti world premiere. The Benetti Ocean Paradise, the largest megayacht at the show, will also be on display.

The Italian Azimut|Benetti Group, the world’s top manufacturer of yachts and megayachts, will be one of the star attractions of the first must-see Autumn Boat Show, to be held from the 9th to the 15th of September, with its Azimut Yachts and Benetti brands. Our constant research and development efforts, along with the new know-how sharing methods between Group brands, have enabled us to achieve remarkable results.


Azimut Grande 95RPH reaches the Atlantis, Magellano, Flybridge and S collections. Among the major innovations introduced on board of the new 29-metre yacht are: its raised pilot house, an extensive, over 60 sqm flybridge, and the very distinctive layout of the internal spaces, which include four VIP cabins in addition to the mastersuite.

The uniqueness of this exclusive cruising experience begins with new features introduced by Stefano Righini, responsible for the concept design and exterior lines. The point of departure is the separation of the pilothouse from the main deck through the creation of a half deck. This move increases the space dedicated to the boat owner and guests, maximizing their privacy in relation to the crew. All this is accomplished without weighing down the exterior lines and continuing to honour that elegant quality that the Azimut Grande Collection is known for.

The interiors are designed by Studio Salvagni Architetti. They feature an eclectic and contemporary style with every detail produced by master Tuscan craftsmen in precious and exclusive materials. A very effective feature is the stair that connects the decks with backlit honey-coloured onyx steps. It is an impressive sculptural element.

The real gem, with a sporting spirit, is the Azimut 77S. With an elegant exterior profile and precious interiors and finishings, it sold four yachts during the pre-launch stages, and stands the chance of being a sure hit and the new benchmark for sporty boats. Great performances and low fuel consumption are guaranteed by the three engines Volvo IPS propulsion and by the new innovative hull.

Another recent launch is the Azimut 50 Fly, which is also making its debut here. The 15-metre craft from the Flybridge Collection is an imposing vessel with very effective style solutions. The 17.5 sqm flybridge is the largest in its category.

And after Cannes, the Azimut Yachts novelties continue. Azimut Yachts is preparing to launch two more models during the first months of 2015, thus expanding every one of its brand’s collections: Azimut Atlantis 43 and Azimut 66 Magellano.


The Group brand devoted to megayachts is sure to stand out in Cannes, given its exceptional “size”. Indeed, the 55-metre Benetti Ocean Paradise, the queen and flagship of the Benetti shipyard, will be the largest vessel on show at the Cannes Boat Show.

But the greatest Benetti novelty that is most likely to capture the attention of yacht owners and enthusiasts alike will be the 33-metre “My Paradis”, the first of the three Tradition Supreme 108’ yachts currently being built. This new model represents the three-deck entry level craft of the Benetti Displacement Class, the range of displacement yachts made out composite materials measuring between 93’ and 145’.

Benetti thus reinforces its leadership in the sector with an extremely innovative yacht. The My Paradis, with its exterior lines designed by Stefano Righini, has three decks plus a sundeck, the first of the craft’s distinctive features: the upper section of the superstructure, the roll bar and the hard top are in carbon fibre, a choice made by our Benetti technicians to make the superstructure lighter and endow the ship with greater stability.

The yacht, hosting up to 12 guests, has been equipped with a new hybrid system that will allow you to navigate, as well as the traditional main engines, also using two 35 kW electric motors connected directly to the regulators / inverters of the main diesel-electric propulsion. The electric motors are powered directly by generators allowing up to a speed of about 6 knots. This configuration will help minimize noise and vibration while maximizing comfort.
