The company began in 1969 by Paolo Vitelli with a sailing boat chartering company in Italy. In 1970 yachting brands such as Amberglass, Westerly, British Powles, and Draco selected Azimut to distribute their boats in Italy, which caused the business to grow quickly. In 1975 Azimut decided to develop their own boats to sell. Between 1975 and 1980, Azimut designed their first handmade models and put them on the market. During this time, Azimut became Italy’s most known companies which specialised in importing and distributing ‘pleasure boats.’
In 1996 Azimut claimed the ISO 9001 as a certificate by the Italian Naval Register. Azimut has always made it a priority to keep leading technical research, design, and materials. Azimut was one of the first in Italy to receive this certificate. After acquiring the Benetti Brothers shipyard in Viareggio, Azimut inherited the approach to design and development that led to a lot of yacht building, which led to 60 yachts between 30 and 70 metres long to be released over the next 20 years.
In 1999 Azimut began to grow rapidly with the Moschino dockyards' acquisition in Fanco, building an industrial plant in Avigliana. This factory is capable of producing about 350 yachts between 12 and 21 metres long. In 2000 Azimut developed its Viareggio shipyard to support the development of yachts between 24 and 35 meters long while also developing a service for maintenance and repairs with the extra room.
In 2004 Azimut gained an 83% share in Fraser Yachts, leading to Azimut developing a new service to mega yacht owners. This was to simplify their ownership of these huge luxury yachts.
