The sleek Azimut 43S is notable, not just for her leading-edge styling or acclaimed interior, but also because she was the first Azimut model to incorporate pod drives as standard equipment. That alone gave her a performance and economy edge on most sport yachts of her dayan advantage that proved short-lived, however, as pod drives have rapidly made their presence known in more (and larger) yachts. Azimuts have always been noted for their posh designer-style interiors, so its no surprise that the accommodations aboard the 43S are both lavish and tasteful. Tiered windows and a retractable sunroof bathe the salon in natural lighting, and cherry cabinets and rich fabrics are found throughout the interior. Both staterooms are roomy and comfortable (note the hullside windows in the guest cabin), and both heads have circular stall showers. Note the large opening port over the galley counter. The beautiful helm station is a work of art. Access to the engine room is through a hatch in the cockpit bench. A hydraulic swim platform, anchor chain washdown, foredeck sun pad, and teak cockpit sole are standard. Volvo 370hp IPS diesels with joystick controls cruise the Azimut 43S at 2830 knots.
