Company history

Benetti was founded in 1873 by Lorenzo Benetti on the basis of the Darsena Lucsa shipyard near Viareggio. The company built commercial wooden sailboats. Under the sons of the founder, Gino and Emilio, the company, which for a long time was named Fratelli Benetti, has also developed an excellent reputation outside the country.

With the final departure of the wooden boats from the stage, the shipyard switched to building pleasure boats in steel. The early 1960s was marked by the arrival of the first Benetti superyacht.

In 1979, the shipyard's key boat, the 86-metre Nabila with the exterior by Jon Bannenberg, was created, becoming the largest yacht of that time.

In 1985 the company was acquired by Paolo Vitelli, owner of the shipyard. AzimutIt gave a new impetus to Benetti, which was experiencing financial difficulties at the time. To date, more than 350 yachts have been built by this legendary shipyard.

Status .

The shipyard is part of the Azimut-Benetti Group, which is one of the world's leading yachting companies.

Production .

The yard has four production complexes with a total area of over 300 thousand square meters. Headquartered in Viareggio since the company's foundation, there are also two historic factories, Darsena Lucca and Darsena Italia, equipped with the latest technology. They are responsible for the production of the Class series of boats. The complex in Livorno of 190 thousand sq. m. allows to build simultaneously up to 12 steel and aluminium superyachts. At the same time, this place is one of the most important centres of refit in the whole Mediterranean, with service works for yachts up to 80 m long. Fourth, a small site in Fano was taken over by Benetti with the purchase of a shipyard. Siar-Moschino in 1998.


Benetti boats form 4 families. Benetti Class combines displacement composite models 29-44 meters, embodying the classic Mediterranean yachting. The custom models of the B.Now series, from 50 to 68 m, are combined with superb modern design and materials (steel and aluminium). The ultra-modern Oasis series for 2019 is only available in one 40 m long model. The Custom family consists of superyachts that make up the shipyard's special pride and are built to individual designs. The newest ones have recently boldly crossed the 100-metre mark of length.


Benetti's superyachts are the creations of a recognized global industry leader, and even the most famous competitors can envy their production volumes.
