Benetti is one of the oldest and most distinguished Italian luxury yacht builders. The shipyard was founded in 1873 by Lorenzo Benetti, who sought to create commercial sailing vessels built from wood for local and international trade but whose company became world-famous for their large, custom-built, luxury mega yachts constructed in fiberglass, aluminum, and steel, and ranging from 30 to 60 meters in length and beyond.
In 1985, Benetti was purchased by the Azimut boat group, who transformed the shipyard into the innovative, technologically advanced and modern boatyard it is today, with one of the world’s largest number of superyachts under construction.
Benetti’s passion for tradition, skill, and fine craftsmanship has resulted in the delivery of highly sought-after luxury yachts for sale and charter. Some of their most popular vessels include the 86-meter mega yacht Nabila, which was built for a Saudi Arabian billionaire Adnan Kashoggi and was featured in the James Bond film “Never Say Never Again;” the 59-meter superyacht Xanadu (now known as St. David).
