The Azimut 70, designed by Stefano Righini, sports a streamlined 70 feet 11 inch hull that has elegant, uninterrupted lines. A fiberglass wing gracefully connects the sides and superstructure. It boasts a stealthy, sleek main deck with 4 well-situated suites. The most notable feature of the main deck is a large window, designed by Stefano Righini, that covers a surface of over 15 square meters, providing an abundance of natural light. The Azimut 70 also features a 30 square meter flybridge, offering one of the largest open navigational bridges of its category, suitable for socializing, enjoying the stars and vast sea views, and dining in total comfort.

2. State of the Art Electronics and Steering Comfort

Another model, the Azimut 75, sports ample space in the engine room, offering 5 feet 9 inches of headroom and space to move around its 1,300 hp MAN diesels.

The Azimut 80 features exceptional interior and exterior construction using nature’s best materials, making it a reliable choice for a long-lasting and safe motor yacht. The Azimut 80 has extended cruising capability, plenty of room for entertaining and excellent trim and performance. The hull is easy to handle and engines allow long distance cruising using diesel power with electric motors. The yacht is outfitted with teak decks, tempered glass windows, stainless steel fittings, the latest instrument indicators and equipment for the engine room, and the flybridge and engine room are as nice as the layout and furnishings for the cockpit area and the interior staterooms and galley.
