Azimut Benetti Group has appointed Nicola Pomi as general manager of the Azimut Yachts brand.
He has a long track record at Volvo Penta, where for the past 15 years he has held the position of vice president global business unit marine.
Azimut says with the arrival of Pomi, Azimut Yachts further strengthens its leadership team, providing an ever better response to the growing dynamism of a market in which innovation, new product development and the production process are the key drivers of competitiveness.
Last month, Azimut reported a 27 per cent growth in the US market.
“Americans love Azimut yachts more than ever,” says Azimut-Benetti Americas president Federico Ferrante. “In recent months in particular, we have seen steadily increasing interest in all the products in the range, from the super sporty Verve models to our largest yachts, including the new Trideck flagship.”
The average length of yachts has also increased and now stands at 63 feet (about 19 metres), up 15% on last year.
