A popular model, the Azimut 54 Flybridge (called the 53 Flybridge in 201012) combines the sleek Mediterranean styling and workmanlike finish one expects in an Azimut yacht. Named Boat of the Year in 2011 by the prestigious U.K. magazine Motor Boating and Yachting, the roomy interior and stylish profile of the Azimut 53/54 turn heads wherever she goes. Stepping inside, the expansive salon is flooded with natural lighting through large cabin windows. A U-shaped leather sofa is to port, and a long cabinet to starboard houses a retractable flat-screen TV and storage drawers. The galley and dinette are forward, two steps up from the salon level. A clever seatback system slides between the dinette and helm to create a two-person drivers seat. The full-service galley (with security handrail) has a beech chopping block. Below, the master suite with rectangular hull windows, vanity with desk, and two wardrobes is amidships. The VIP cabin is forward, lit by panoramic hull windows, and the starboard guest cabin has twin beds. The hydraulic swim platform can lift a jet ski, while the cockpit boasts a teak sole and C-shaped lounge with table. Crew quarters are aft. Volvo 725hp V-drive diesels cruise at 27-28 knots.
