Meeting Giovanna Vitelli, Group Vice President of the Azimut | Benetti Group during last year’s Miami Yacht Show was a breath of fresh air for several reasons. First of all, she’s not only cool, smart, and charming, but she also oversees a powerful and innovative array of Italian boat building companies including Benetti and Azimut

And as I saw for myself in Miami, Azimut Yachts has been celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year with plenty of parties and launching new models like the 80-foot long S8 (pictured here).

It’s a fantastic example of a stylish the Italian high-performance yacht that has enough interior and deck space to lucky owners to spread out in…style.
