The international boat show Boot Dusseldorf this year was traditionally rich in premieres and novelties, which is not surprising for one of the largest yacht shows in the Old world. The largest Italian shipyard Azimut Yachts do not stay aside and introduced the visitors two world premieres: Azimut Atlantis 51 and 55 Azimut Fly.
Cruiser 55 Azimut Fly, which was replaced in the lineup flybridge 54 Azimut models, perhaps even exceeded the expectations of experts and journalists. Two eminent Italian designer, Stefano Righini and Akhil ' Salvini invited to design models have demonstrated in their work the ongoing concept of the game of opposites. And if the outside of that boat looks very aggressive, with great body lines slightly to soften the stern, inside the boat, there prevails a feeling of spaciousness, comfort and softness. Designer Salvini managed to achieve this by eliminating sharp corners and careful use of natural light in the interior. A bold combination of five kinds of materials of different textures: grey Zebrano, dark oak, glossy black lacquer, and bronze and steel accents along with panoramic Windows brings to interiors of the yacht almost palatial elegance and luxury! All this causes the feeling that you are not on the ship 17 meters long, and, for example, in a boutique hotel! Another kind of challenge to competitors was unusually spacious flybridge, a much extended in the direction of the stern. This allowed to place an additional dining area and place to relax with a U-shaped sofa beside the captain's chair. On the lower deck are three spacious and bright double cabins, decorated in the same vein as the salon. In addition, the Board provided a cabin for the captain.
In addition to a balanced body and powerful propulsive system, excellent seaworthiness and handling 55 Azimut Fly provides advanced electronics Azimut like the Active Trim Control for automatic adjustment of trim or Electronic Power Steering for setting the sensitivity controls to suit individual driving style. The maximum speed of the yacht with engines of 800 HP exceeds 30 knots.
