Azimut-Benetti Group has announced that the value of its production for 2021/2022 has reached €1 billion (about US$1 billion), representing an annual increase of 19 per cent. Furthermore, its updated order book is at an all-time high of over €2.5 billion, covering production for the next three years.


Asia-Pacific accounts for 16 per cent of a global order book led by the Americas (38 per cent) and Europe (32 per cent), while the Middle East and Africa accounts for 14 per cent.


The Group says the figures highlight its ability “to anticipate trends and interpret the wishes of both existing owners and new customers”, revealing that it has gradually acquired younger owners, with an average age of 45 for Azimut buyers and 55 for Benetti clients. 


Marco Valle, CEO of Azimut-Benetti Group, said: “As a group, we’ve always made the effort to spark the interest of new customers who have little or no connection with boating, and we can report some excellent results over the years, although the significant change in habits and lifestyles recently seen at global level has contributed to today’s results. We’ve been successful at foreseeing this change and interpreting what new customers want, and we hope to continue this course.”


The Group also confirmed its commitment to sustainability across all aspects of the business and is planning major investments in coming years, with a focus not only on products but also industrial development, production sites and local area training projects.


The total investment will be €130 million over the next four years, focused on the reduction of energy consumption through conversion to photovoltaic and geothermal technology, development of production sites, digitalisation of industrial processes, personnel training and a general improvement in workers’ living conditions.
