After WW2, wooden commercial boats had disappeared from the market so the company refocused on building steel, pleasure crafts. In the 1960s it started producing its first superyachts.
In 1985, Azimut took over the Fratelli Benetti boatyard in Viareggio, setting the roots for the Azimut Benetti group. The company later started collaborating with young designer, Stefano Righini, which would bring lines the company is known for today.
The company acquired the Gobbi shipyard in 2001 which now produced the group's Atlantis range from 10m to 18m. In 2004, the group acquired Fraser Yachts, a large yacht brokerage company. It later developed Marina di Varazze and the Royal Yacht Club in Moscow. By 2011, the group's net assets grew to €300 million with a turnover of €600 million, a significant cut on its €1 billion turnover of 2008.
