Azimut Yachts Hong Kong clients joined 700 VIP guests at the Azimut-Benetti Yachting Gala in Portofino Italy in July.
Over the weekend of 27 and 28 June, international clients were welcomed by the Azimut-Benetti Group and
other iconic names in Made in Italy luxury such as Damiani and Maserati. They spent two days in Portofino Marina and Paraggi Bay that were dedicated to seeing the best of the nautical world and to sampling the Made in Italy lifestyle.
Another special event during the event was the world debut of the new Azimut Magellano 66.
During the weekend, Portofino Marina was fully dedicated to the most glamorous event on the nautical calendar at which guests were treated to seeing the Group's whole fleet lined up and available for them, along with other examples of Italian luxury and superb taste from other iconic names. This Azimut|Benetti Yachting Gala was the eigth of its kind.
The weekend opened with sea trials which let guests admire the Azimut and Benetti range before its official launch which will take place at Boat Shows in the Autumn.
In the evening, the famous Paraggi beach was transformed into the Azimut Beach Club by an Agency from London - one of the best known agencies in the world for organising VIP events. First dinner, then music, then the yacht parade followed by a laser show and a huge bonfire on the beach.
Azimut Yachts Hong Kong were lucky to have the opportunity to sea trial the amazing new Magellano 66 and we were very very impressed. The Magellano concept is different to the better know Flybridge range, but I think this new model will certainly make people look carefully at the Magellano.
We were amazed at how smothly and quietly she perfomed on the water. Fast, efficient and smoothed out any waves that we came across and add to that her large singl level saloon, dinette & galley areas on the main deck that offer an unparalelled view from her vertical windows. The Magellano really is a very interesting alternative to her Flybridge sister.
We want one and if you see her and try her we think you might too!
