Azimut Yachts is an Italian yacht-manufacturing company based in Viareggio, Italy. It was established in 1969 by Paolo Vitelli. The company started with sailing boat chartering, later developing into a large luxury yacht building industry. The company currently owns Benetti, another luxury ship building company.



"SHMILY" is currently in the Florida panhandle and will relocate to Orange Beach, AL to undergo material improvements. She will be available for lease with interest-free terms very soon.

Yacht Donation is a safe and viable alternative to selling or trading custom vessels like this Azimut. Donors benefit of reduced holding costs and obtain a reasonable tax deduction from a safe, reputable charity. The process is extremely convenient for everyone and provides brokers with competitively priced inventory and refreshed listings with interest-free lease opportunities.

All proceeds support the AMIkids mission to help youth develop into responsible and productive citizens. In doing so we help protect public safety and positively impact youth and their families by helping them separate a troubled past from a bright future. 

Why Donate?

Vessel donation is a powerful and safe alternative for charitable yacht owners. The process is simple, convenient and expeditious. 

Every vessel contribution supports our mission to help at-risk youth separate a troubled past from a bright future. AMIkids is a nationally recognized nonprofit with a pristine track record of yacht donations for nearly 50 years.
