A huge sales success with over 300 sold worldwide, the Azimut 55 Evolution displays a styling scheme very different from earlier Azimut motoryachts. Gone are the tiered cabin windows of previous years, replaced by distinctive fin-shaped salon windows. Also new were vertical glass panels in the hullsides, a design innovation that introduced natural lighting into the master stateroom. Stepping inside from the covered aft deck, the open-plan salon of the Azimut 55 features a C-shaped leather sofa to port and entertainment center to starboard. The galley and dining area are forward, two steps up from the salon. Below, there are three staterooms and two full heads including a full-beam amidships master, VIP queen forward, and guest cabin with side-by-side berths. Lacquered cherry wood cabinets and trim are used throughout the interior. Note the power side windows at the lower helm. Crew quarters with a single berth and toilet are aft, accessed from a hatch in the aft deck sole. The spacious flybridge has a large sun pad to starboard, opposite the helm, while a refreshment center holds a barbecue grill, ice maker and sink. Cat 715hp C12 V-drive diesels cruise at 25–26 knots (30+ top).
