Azimut sells 14 yachts at FLIBS
Italian builder announces 14 ‘new owners’ from Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Azimut has announced 14 orders of new yachts – 12 from the US and two from Latin America – from this year’s five-day Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which concluded earlier this month.
The Italian builder reported “more than satisfactory visitor attendance”, pointing to a 12 per cent increase from 2019 for the first two days, which Azimut described as “typically the most productive at the boat show”.
Federico Ferrante, President of Azimut-Benetti America, said: “We were sure that the organisers would manage participants’ safety in the best way possible.
“We’re aware of the huge impact that FLIBS has on the boat industry and everyone who depends on this sector, which is why we were determined to take part this year despite the huge uncertainties caused by the current situation. It could have been risky, but now we’re proud that we followed our instincts, which have proved to be right.”
Before the show, Azimut organised an evening event at the Pérez Art Museum Miami which included a showing of Open Your Eyes, the short film directed by Gabriele Muccino to honour the launch of the new Magellano 25 Metri.
Featuring exterior styling by Ken Freivokh, the Magellano 25 Metri in Florida is a special Timeless Version featuring custom interiors designed by the Azimut style office based on the interior concept and architectural design developed by Vincenzo De Cotiis.
