Within a year he was offered the option of becoming a distributor in Italy of some well know yachting brands. Azimut quickly jumped on board and then decided to try its hand at designing a yacht in connection with Amerglass. The first model did so well, Azimut went on to design several other yachts in the lower end of the market. By 1985 Azimut bought the Benetti brand of megayachts, this brand had been in business since 1873. This move gave Azimut the background to move forward in designing new mega yachts with Azimut's innovative interiors.

The next considerations of comfortable amenities, special features to enhance safety and the latest technology coupled with beautiful interiors.
Azimut Yachts carefully took the construction process to new levels. Using builders with excellent skills, quality materials, and cutting edge technology has become a hallmark the Azimut is know for.
