A company with over a century of boat building experience, Benetti is truly an historical company that is still relevant today. Part of what made Benetti so successful, despite the trials and torments of the 20th century, was their vision and drive to see it through. Since its founding in 1873, Benetti’s mission has been to provide the world with the most beautiful, reliable, innovative yachts, and to provide assistance anywhere, anytime.

Another factor in Benetti’s success is that it has always been and remains a family owned business. With traditions passed on through the generations, it’s founder’s values still influence policy decisions to this day, setting the standard for excellence in the yacht world. A company with a rich history, excellent leadership, and always on the cutting edge of boating technology, Benetti is one of the most recognizable yacht brands in the world.


From Viareggio Shipyards to Film

Founded in 1873 in the Italian shipyards of Viareggio by Fratelli Benetti, the company slowly grew in fame and prestige to become the most popular yacht brand to date. It’s yachts have shown up in pop culture, cinema, and music, such as the famous 86 meter Nabila’s appearance in the James Bond film, “Never Say Never Again”. A record breaking yacht for its time, the Nabila was released in 1979 and was known as the peak of modern boating luxury.

A Change of Leadership

After over 100 years of family ownership, Benetti was acquired by fellow Italian yacht company Azimut in 1985. Under the new leadership of Azimut owner Paulo Vitelli, Benetti launched a series of new Luxury Pocket Yachts, which sold very popularly and helped to revamp Benetti’s notoriety.
