The new Azimut 80 at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2013.
The new Azimut 80 will make her debut in USA at the next Fort Lauderdale Boat Show (October 31- November 4, 2013). She is the first yacht over than 72 feet designed entirely at Azimut’s headquarters in Avigliana, Italy. Developed on the experience of the recent, larger vessels, the Azimut 80 was developed in the exterior design by Stefano Righini while the design of interiors was handled by Salvagni Architetti. The new model by Azimut has already won a prize: at the recent Cannes Boat Show 2013 has been chosen as the “Most functional Yacht from 24 to 50 metres” in the frame of the 2013 World Yachts Trophy.
The new 80’ interprets contemporary lifestyle by offering exceptional comfort: four cabins, five bathrooms and a 42-square-metre flybridge. The innovative solutions introduced for the furnishings and the precise lighting design contribute to make it a true SPA on the sea.
Azimut 80 layout comprises 4 cabins, all with bathroom, including the owner’s cabin extending over the full beam. The yacht can accommodate 8 guests and includes an enormous flybridge, designed for maximum versatility of use.
The interior design, developed by Salvagni Architetti, can be proposed on four different styles: from the more classic Dolcevita and Firenze, to the more contemporary Portofino and Riviera, the main differences laying in the chromatic solutions and in the furniture arrangement.
“The choice of the four different locations is a clear tribute to a refined lifestyle and a typical Italian taste and inspires nothing but the maximum relax,” announced Azimut Yachts.
The cockpit with teak flooring is extremely spacious and dedicated to socialising, with a large sofa aft and dining table seating eight. The design of two sky-ground windows (1.6 m by 2 m of glass) located in the dining area is very impressive, as it offers a fantastic natural light and breathtaking view.
The swimming platform is incredibly large – almost 9 square metres – and provides plenty of space for the launch and retrieval of tenders exceeding 4 metres in length or of jet skis. Further forward, the space is divided into a large sun deck that can comfortably accommodate four people, and an area with a ‘C’-shaped sofa just aft of the windscreen, with further storage.
In the engine room, the two 1550 hp MAN engines provide a top speed of 30 knots. The fuel tank has a capacity of 6,000 litres, while the water tank can contain 1,200 litres.
