Order book €700m strong for Benetti
Benetti has announced it has an order book of 34 superyachts valued at €700m which, for the Azimut Benetti Group, translates into exceeding €1bn in total.
The company says it has capitalised on an international surge in boat sales with a wide range of new generation models to consolidate its offering.
It cites the successes of the Benetti Oasis 40m, a yacht in such demand that it was necessary to double the number of moulds, as particularly impressive. Other models include the Benetti Motopanfilo 37m, as well as the Benetti B.Yond 37m, a four-deck explorer under construction that the company says will be the most eco-sustainable yacht available in this market segment.
The company’s seen strong numbers in the composite megayacht division from 29-44m, and from the custom steel division, which has sold 15 yachts with a concentration in the 50-70m range.
“We are deeply grateful for the diligent collaboration between the management, the workers and all the representatives of the supply chain, who have dependably supported us,” says Giovanna Vitelli, executive VP.
“Now that we’ve triumphed over the challenging international markets, we must keep our attention focused and continue to pursue the equally demanding work at hand: production continuity in full respect of the health and safety of those who work with us, which has so far been successful,” says Marco Valle, CEO. “To all those who work every day to make it possible, I send my heartfelt thanks.”
