Overview Azimut yachts are known the world-over for their unique combination of beauty, technology, and elegance. The 62′ flybridge model, in particular, has been one of Azimut’s
bestsellers for more than a decade – and “Le Fontainebleau” is a spectacular example of why this is the case. The interior of “Le Fontainebleau” is warm & inviting, while still exhibiting the Italian stylishness for which Azimuts are acclaimed; her full-beam master stateroom, not to mention her two additional over-sized guest cabins, will leave you utterly convinced that, this listing aside, the yacht must be at least ten feet larger than her sixty-two feet.

mmediately upon entering the main salon through an impressive set of curved glass doors, one is greeted by a large leather-covered seating area, with an accompanying coffee table, to port. This area is perfectly located directly across from the yacht’s entertainment center. While many guests will reflexively reach for the remote and kick back to watch a favorite movie, this would be a bit premature – there’s still way too much to see in “Le FontaineBleau”. That said, given the yacht’s high-ceilings, one would be forgiven for thinking they were in an actual movie theater.
Moving forward, there is a galley to port and a dinette to starboard. The dinette, comprised of two adjoining custom tables and seating for five, is so inviting, and utterly lacking in pretension, that it would be easy to regard this area merely as an area for a casual breakfast or lunch. This would be a mistake. When it is set up for formal dining, the dinette rivals anywhere else on the yacht – even the vaunted aft deck – as a “go to” spot for dinner. Now whether that night-time meal is at a “white glove” level or decidedly more informal is completely up to you.
The galley, found directly across from the dinette, is fully equipped and more than capable of churning out delicious meal after delicious meal for any & all guests on board. The customized glassware and dishes storage is masterfully arranged – allowing the galley to be fully-stocked at all times, without necessarily looking like it. And particularly when there is a “full house” on board, the full-sized refrigerator will come in handy.
The lower helm station is centered in the middle of the pilot house and just forward of both the dinette and galley. The electronics and other instrumentation are thoughtfully arranged, and will bring a knowing, appreciative smile from both professional captains and owner/operators alike. The plush, leather-covered captain’s chair is so comfortable that any driver of the yacht would be forgiven for taking command exclusively from the lower helm – even when it’s 75 degrees and sunny and the flybridge helm station beckons.
Moving down below deck, a visitor to “Le Fontainebleau” is greeted by one of the highlights of the yacht – its extraordinary guest quarters. But first, before any staterooms are inspected, one is treated to a suede-lined hallway. Midship you will find independent access to the full-beam Master stateroom, allowing for maximum space and a private suite. The Master is notable for a number of reasons – yes, of course, its impossible large size, but also its gorgeous cherry wood accents, abundant natural light, amply-sized ensuite bathroom (which boasts a top-of-the-line head system), and large walk-in closet.
Moving back to the hallway, there is a day head on the port side; adjacent to the day head is a twin guest room with side-by-side berths. Some owners may wish to convert the this guest room into one with a double bed, and this can be done quite easily. The spacious forward VIP has an ensuite bath and a walk-in closet, which is almost unheard of in this class and provides for more than ample storage.
