Organised by authoritative British magazines Motor Boat & Yachting and Motor Boats Monthly, the 2014 Motor Boat Awards recognized Azimut as a leader in the ‘Flybridge over 55 feet’ category and the ‘Sportcruiser up to 45 feet’ category. The first award, the ‘Flybridge over 55 feet’, went to the Azimut 80, while the Azimut Atlantis 34 won in the ‘Sportcruiser up to 45 feet’ category.
“These awards boost the importance of these two yachts, already recognised unique in their category in the previous months…Azimut fans have already demonstrated their appreciation for both vessels, each of which presents decidedly innovative content and sophisticated solutions adopted to respond to the tastes and demands of an increasingly well-informed, evolving clientele. Receiving further confirmation of the success of these decisions from top experts in the field brings us all great satisfaction and encouragement to continue producing vessels which are the product of Italian creativity and skill but also, and above all, of on-going research and application of the best technologies.” said Francesco Ansalone, Marketing Director of Azimut Benetti Group.
The prestigious awards were officially presented to Azimut, on January 6, at the London Boat Show. A panel of judges including the magazines’ editors and experienced boat testers chose the winners on the basis of the results of tests conducted at sea with the vessels over the past twelve months.
