AZIMUT YACHTS PLANS TO LAUNCH FIVE NEW MODELS IN 2022
Italy’s Azimut Yachts plans to introduce five new models in 2022, along with its new ‘Sea Deck’ concept which aims to bring the open stern beach area seen in the ’Oasis Deck’ to smaller yachts. Azimut’s five-year (2019-23) new product launch programme is seen as the most ambitious in its history. At the recent Cannes Yachting Festival, the company launched the Grande Trideck, Azimut 68, Azimut 53 and the new Magellano 66.
In 2022 Azimut will introduce two new models from the Grande Collection, the brand’s flagship range; two models from the Magellano Collection, the crossover line intended for those who want to navigate without limits; and a new Azimut S7, a sports coupe for fast navigation
In addition, the Azimut Yachts fleet is preparing to welcome ‘Sea Deck’, a concept that borrows from the experience gained by the group with Oasis Deck. Sea Deck brings the opening stern beach area to smaller boats, enhancing, with a single feature, the three types of boats – the day-boat, the sport cruiser, and the family yacht.
Building on Azimut’s active year in terms of new launches, economic results and orders gained, the brand’s industrial strategy, in which innovation plays a core role, continues to prove successful and follow a well-defined path.
The Azimut Yachts Collection continues to grow, improve and expand. In addition to the four models presented at Cannes, the brand will introduce some new products in the coming months with preference for those segments that have proved to be strategic and commercially successful.
The first new yacht to debut will be the Verve 42, which will be officially unveiled at the Ft Lauderdale International Boat Show. Building on the success of the Verve 47, the Verve 42 aims to further satisfy within the US outboard market the American need for power and speed, with a Made in Italy design and a clear Italian imprint.
In the spring of 2022, the Magellano 30 Metri will be presented, the result of the shipyard’s renewed collaboration with Vincenzo De Cotiis and Ken Freivokh. The crossover yacht, equipped with a dual mode hull, projects the trawler into the future. Launched by Azimut Yachts in 2009, the Magellano Collection combines the concept of slow navigation with large volumes and elegant environments.
As for the Grande Collection, two new models are scheduled for launch next year – a Grande 26 Metri and a Grande 36 Metri. The former is proposed as a compact superyacht, capable of offering separate flows between crew and guests, with five cabins, including the owner’s cabin on the main deck. The Grande 36 Metri, in contrast, offers a choice of different layouts with distinct functionality for each space.
Finally, 2023 brings the introduction of the new and revolutionary Sea Deck concept – a solution that, even in small boats starting from 15.2m (50ft) in length, will offer all the characteristics of the top market day-boats, open sport cruisers, and family yachts. Owners will enjoy the large expandable beach area.
