What Are The Most Popular Used Azimut Yachts Flybridge Models?
Azimut 80 Flybridge
The Azimut 80 Flybridge combines an exciting profile and impressive performance in a yacht of singular elegance and sophistication. The 80 stands out for her large side windows that allow light to reflect off the water and filter into the interior, providing panoramic views of the sea. Not surprisingly, the interior is extremely bright and open thanks to the wide 20'3" beam. Entering from the aft deck through triple glass doors, a vast salon with facing leather sofas is designed for luxurious living and entertaining. An eight-person dining area is forward in the salon, and a solid wall separates the galley from the salon. Ahead of the galley is the lower helm and a sweeping staircase that leads below to three guest staterooms and the aft master suite. The forward VIP stateroom has an island queen berth; the starboard guest stateroom has two single berths; the port guest stateroom has a double berth, and the opulent full-beam master stateroom (with five hull windows) features a king berth. Each stateroom features a private bathroom. Crew quarters for three—with access to the engine room—are aft, reached from a hatch in the aft deck sole. MAN 1550hp V12 diesels cruise at 24–26 knots (30 knots top).
Azimut 72 Flybridge
One of Azimut’s more recently launched flybridge models, the Azimut 72 Fly has been noted to be very well laid out with an emphasis on the ideal balance of interior space and sporty performance. Representing the brand’s new generation of design, the 72 Fly sits just ahead of her predecessor the Azimut 70 Fly. This motor yacht offers a spacious 18.4-foot beam which lends itself to a luxurious salon and galley area on the main deck with full height windows. The full-beam flybridge runs almost half the length of the yacht and offers the perfect lounging space to take in the ocean. Accommodations below deck include a double guest cabin to port and twin-berth cabin to starboard, both en suite. Up in the bow is the en suite VIP stateroom. The master suite is amidships offering headroom of 6 feet, 7 inches, a comfortable double berth, and large windows. The Azimut 72 Flybridge is outfitted with MAN’s compact, 1,400-horsepower V12s, can reach up to 32 knots with a cruising speed in the upper 20s.
Azimut 70 Flybridge
More than just a pretty face, the Azimut 70 embodies the luxury and performance the boating world has come to expect from Europe’s largest yacht builder. The first impression of the Azimut 70 comes in the covered aft deck with its comfortable settee and teak table. Entering through double sliding doors, the elegant salon has a low U-shaped settee on one side and TV and entertainment systems on the other. A dining table for eight is two steps up, opposite a semi-enclosed gourmet galley with dishwasher and pass-thru to the dining table. Below, the four-stateroom layout is comprised of a king master, queen VIP, double port guest, and a twin starboard guest. All have ensuite baths with showers and entertainment systems. Twin-cabin crew quarters—with direct engine room access—are aft. The lower helm features twin leather captain’s seats, portside opening window, and access door to the starboard deck. Teak side decks are standard. On the flybridge, the helm is surrounded by a large sun pad. The teak hydraulic swim platform has space for a tender or jet ski. MAN 1360hp engines with joystick controls cruise at 26–28 knots (30+ top).
Azimut 66 Flybridge
Striking an exceptional balance between quality, price, design, and stability, the Azimut 66 Flybridge is thought to be one of those ideally sized motor yachts engineered to offer huge amounts of space for her guests. The elegant, signature Azimut design is apparent throughout with her modern exterior lines. There is ample room for guests to relax onboard the Azimut 66 Fly both indoors and out. The expansive flybridge runs about two-thirds the length of the boat and features three separate seating areas. On the main deck, guests will find numerous seating options for relaxing and dining as well as a well-appointed galley. This is a four-stateroom yacht with crew’s quarters aft – all of which are generous in space. The master stateroom is located amidships while a forward, en suite guest stateroom has a queen berth on centerline. To aft are two additional guest staterooms that share a head on the passageway, though there’s a separate entrance to the head from the twin-berth double to starboard. A pair of CAT C18 Acert 1150 mhps reach speed of 32 knots.
Azimut 64 Flybridge
Successor to the top-selling Azimut 62 Flybridge, the Azimut 64 Flybridge took Italian styling and luxury to the next level when she was introduced in 2011. The flybridge and cockpit are among the largest in this class, and the squarish bow protects the deck and sun pad from sea-spray while cruising. On the main deck, the salon is flooded with natural light through large windows. A posh U-shaped sofa to port in the salon seats six, and a long cabinet to starboard houses an entertainment center. Two steps separate the salon from the galley and dining areas. Unlike earlier Azimut yachts, the galley is completely open to the dinette and salon. The helm has been moved from a central position to starboard which permits an atrium on the port side while also allowing light down into the living area. There are three staterooms and three heads below. The full-beam master is amidships and features an offset queen bed, two-seat dinette, and panoramic views from port and starboard hull windows. The VIP stateroom has an island bed, and the second guest stateroom has two single beds convertible to a queen. Two-person crew quarters are aft. Caterpillar 1150hp C18 diesels cruise at 26–28 knots (30+ knots top).
Azimut 58 Flybridge
Sleek Italian styling, lush accommodations, and a good turn of speed characterize the Azimut 58, a state-of-the-art yacht when she was introduced to the European market in 1998. Built on a deep-V hull with propeller pockets to level the engines, the interior of the Azimut 58 is a rich blend of high-gloss cherrywood cabinets and trim, posh furnishings, and impeccable detailing. The galley-down layout—unusual in a modern Azimut interior—results in a very expansive salon. Entering through a sliding glass door, a curved leather sofa is to starboard and wet bar (with bottle and glass storage) is to port. A plush C-shaped settee with cocktail table is forward of the wet bar. The Azimut’s recessed galley is two steps down in the aft port corner of the salon. There are three staterooms and three full heads on the lower level. The master and forward VIP staterooms have queen berths, and the guest cabin has side-by-side berths. Crew quarters with a single berth and toilet are aft. An appealing feature of this yacht is her large aft deck with its teak sole and twin entryways to the extended swim platform. A relatively light boat for her size, MTU 765hp MTUs cruise at 26–28 knots (low 30s top).
Azimut 54 Flybridge
The Azimut Yachts 54 Flybridge combines performance, innovative design and luxury for a yachting experience that is unlike any other. Introduced in 2015, this motor yacht is built to cruise comfortably and can reach a maximum speed of 32 knots. While aboard this Flybridge model, you'll be well equipped for both relaxing and entertaining. The main deck boasts an expansive, sun-filled salon with a U-shaped couch and flat-screen television. A step above the saloon is the galley with full kitchen and dinette area, which is fully equipped with a three-burner ceramic cooktop and combination refrigerator/freezer. Designed to maximize space and function, the dinette seatback doubles to create an opposite-facing seat for the driver. The extended flybridge and two sunbathing areas also make for ample living and entertaining space on the yacht. The master cabin contains hull windows, two wardrobes, and a vanity with desk. There is also a VIP and guest cabin, all of which are beautifully designed and offer water views.
Azimut 50 Flybridge
A head-turning yacht with remarkably large salon windows, the Azimut 50 Flybridge is a three-stateroom Italian yacht with Azimut’s signature vertical hull windows and a comfortable bow seating area which was an innovation with this model. The extended flybridge measures nearly 200 square feet in size, and the bow has a six-person bench seat in addition to the sun pad. Below decks, a U-shaped settee sits to starboard with a wood table at its center. Another settee is to port in the salon, and the raised lower helm is forward to starboard. Contrary to current trends, the galley is down rather than aft in the salon. Storage is scarce and countertop space is extremely limited. The full-beam owner's cabin is amidships and the VIP cabin is at the bow, as is the second guest cabin with two Pullman berths. The Azimut 50's cockpit is completely shaded by the flybridge overhang and a U-shaped lounge runs the length of the transom. Aft crew quarters are optional. A hydraulic swim platform is standard. The squared bow not only allows more internal volume, but also shields the deck and sun pad from sea-spray while cruising. Volvo 670hp straight-shaft inboards cruise the Azimut 50 at 26–27 knots (30+ knots top).
The Azimut Yachts Brand : Background
Part of Italy’s Azimut-Benetti Group, Azimut Yachts is a top builder of luxury motor yachts from 13 m (42’7”) to 38 m (125’4”). Azimut to fruition in 1969 when Paolo Vitelli opened a yacht chartering business in Turin and soon became a distributor for several Italian boat manufacturers. During the 1970s, Vitelli gradually moved the company into boat building with the launch of a 32’ Targa in 1977 and a 105-footer in 1982 securing Azimut’s place as an international manufacturer of production yachts.
The company continually evolved, creating several highly successful models in subsequent years including the first 30 m yacht in history to be built of fiberglass. In 1985, Azimut acquired the historic Benetti Yachts, an iconic builder founded in 1873 and a recognized leader in the construction of world-class luxury yachts. From the late 1990s onwards — with the acquisition of new boatyards, the restructuring of the Benetti shipyards, and the construction of a new site at Avigliana — Azimut Yachts has become the world’s leading builder of yachts and megayachts.
