The comment of Paolo Vitelli, founder of Azimut Yachts

“Marco Valle, who joined the company 25 years ago, receives the full support of the Vitelli family and the Group’s Board of Directors for this new challenge, which he will certainly be able to take up with the same spirit of success that has distinguished his work, first as sales manager of Azimut Yachts and, for 4 years, as CEO of the Azimut division”.

  1. Azimut is a nice manufacturer. I remember I had a similar one when I was a young man. That was a while ago. After that, I also started my own boat website. Would you mind if I added your site to my web directory?
