Azimut is showing its Magellano 60, New Fly 72 and Verve 48 models for the first time.
Italian luxury yacht builder Azimut has confirmed details of its offering for the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival, which opens the European 2023/4 nautical season this week.
Alongside a range of models on display, Azimut plans world premieres for its new Magellano 60 and S7 models and the New Fly 72.
The Magellano 60 is a crossover designed for owners who love long voyages full of adventure and charm. This 60-footer stands out for the large spaces on board, generous without compromising the elegance of Ken Freivokh‘s lines.
The cockpit is configured as a natural extension of the large lounge on the main deck and the stern transforms into a terrace capped with a transparent parapet that creates an ‘infinity terrace’ overlooking the water.
The crossover soul of the Magellano 60 is also through the high-efficiency Dual Mode semi-planing hull, which allows navigation at low speeds in total comfort but also to handle higher speeds by attenuating the impact of the waves and optimizing consumption and emissions.
The Magellano 60 is also the model chosen by Azimut for the first voyage powered by HVOlution biofuel, produced by Eni Sustainable Mobility with renewable raw materials.
Azimut says the tests carried out in the summer of 2023 recorded ‘exceptional’ results in terms of compatibility and performance. The combination of the Dual Mode hull and biofuel has allowed a well-to-wake reduction in CO2 emissions of more than 80 per cent compared to a yacht of comparable size powered by fossil diesel.
From the Verve Series, the new Verve 48 makes its global debut at the Cannes Boat Show. This sports weekender presents interesting developments designed by Azimut in collaboration with Francesco Struglia, who designed the interiors and exteriors.
The stern area on the Verve 48 is completely new, larger and integrated with two ladders to easily get into the water. On the left, and in continuity, a swim platform of unprecedented width opens up. These two elements form a single, extended platform on the water, offering the possibility to experience the sea in freedom.
The full power of the Verve 48 is unleashed by three 600hp Mercury V12s, which reach up to 50 knots and cruise efficiently with fuel consumption reduced by 15 per cent, according to the builder. Noise is also reduced by up to 10 decibels compared to the previous Verve 47.
The layout of the cockpit allows either a fun or chilled experience depending on the arrangement and vibe. Another distinctive feature of Verve 48 is the new hardtop, also available with an opening tempered glass insert which, in addition to lightening the structure of the hardtop, lets in light and air even at anchor.
The New Fly 72 joins the Magellano 60 and Verve 48 as the shipyard’s third international premiere at the 2023 Cannes Yachting Festival.
The New Fly 72, the latest addition to the Fly Series, features exterior lines by Alberto Mancini and interiors by architect and designer Fabio Fantolino — making his debut in the marine world.
Meanwhile the S7, the sport yacht with a green soul, is featured on the water for the first time. A newcomer to the S Series, premiered at Boot Düsseldorf 2023, the S7 is a stylish motoryacht with a sporty and sustainable soul.
Born from the collaboration between the yacht designer Alberto Mancini and the creative boutique Yachtique, this 22-meter cruiser is part of Azimut’s low emission line, thanks to advanced naval architecture combined with the highly efficient propulsion entrusted of 3 Volvo IPS engines and optimized hull lines, designed in collaboration with P.L. Ausonio Naval Architecture.
The combination achieves a reduction in consumption and CO2 emissions of up to 30 per cent at the most frequent speeds of use compared to a boat of the same weight and size with a traditional hard-chine hull and shaft line.
