The Azimut|Benetti Gala to be held at the end of June will see the new 24-metre Azimut Yachts officially presented. The new series of yachts represent contemporary lifestyle by providing outstanding comfort in four cabins, five bathrooms and a 42-square-metre flybridge. They also boast innovative solutions for the furnishings and precise lighting design. The motor yacht Azimut 80 is the first of the yachts, measuring more than 72 feet designed entirely at Azimut’s headquarters at Avigliana, Italy.
Motor yacht Azimut 80
It builds on the experience of recent, larger vessels developed in the exterior design by Stefano Righini while the design of interiors was handled by Achille Salvagni Architetti. The Azimut 80 is a leisure craft built in CE class: A, and is thus able to tackle any weather conditions. The layout comprises 4 cabins, all with bathroom, including the owner’s cabin extending over the full beam. The yacht can accommodate 8 guests and includes an enormous flybridge, designed for maximum versatility of use.

ALWAYS IN TOUCH WITH THE SEA… AND PLENTY OF SPACE: THE GUEST IS KING
Panoramic windows and maximum convenience for the guests’ cabins revolutionise the way of cruising.
The sense of space in the owner’s cabin and in the splendid bathroom are certainly among the strong points of the yacht, together with the innovative windows offering extraordinary luminosity and an unmatched panoramic view. The five vertical windows effectively transform the bulkheads into a single window for a ‘dive into the ocean’ effect. The owner’s bathroom, covering the entire beam of the yacht and with a double entrance located aft of the cabin, is almost a spa, with a central crystal shower box offering maximum visibility on either side of the bathroom. The opening portholes present in all the cabins offer a high level of natural ventilation.

In the first model available, dove-coloured leather panels with a barely hinted padded decoration that becomes lighter and lighter in the various cabins, adorn the bed heads of each cabin. The interior decoration of the new Azimut 80 is extremely refined and at the same contemporary, thanks to the combination of fine materials and modern touches: marble for the bathrooms, grey bleached oak alternating with dark wood and painted detailing in the skylights and windows all define a sober, sophisticated atmosphere. Other stylistic combinations are already in the pipeline.
The starboard cabin has two single beds and the possibility of a third fold-down bed, plenty of stowage and a bathroom with separate shower, while the guests’ cabin on the port side has a double bed. There is no lack of large windows and opening portholes. In the VIP cabin located further forward, there is one panoramic window on either side; the bed is set centrally with the head towards the bow.

A carefully planned lighting design based on LED technology makes possible a sophisticated modulation of the light in each interior space. Moreover, the play of mirrors and the height of the interiors – well over two metres high – ensure a truly exceptional sense of space.

The crew’s cabins are located aft, with direct access from the deck; at the moment, two beds are planned, but the possibility of adding a third is currently being studied.

A SALON AND INTERNAL SPACES BROUGHT TO LIFE WITH LIGHT
Light and comfort are the key concepts underlying the design of the main deck.
The cockpit with teak flooring is extremely spacious and dedicated to socialising, with a large sofa aft and dining table seating eight. The design of two sky-ground windows (1.6 m by 2 m of glass) located in the dining area is very impressive, as it offers a fantastic natural light and breathtaking view.
The galley, fitted with Miele appliances, is available in two versions: enclosed or open-space. In both cases, there is a double access, towards the interior and towards the exterior, to assure maximum independence between guests and crew. The main deck is also equipped with a function day toilet.

LIVING IN THE OPEN AIR: EXTRA-LARGE SPACES TO BE ENJOYED UNTIL THE EVENING
The swimming platform measuring almost 9 square metres and the large fly are the pride and joy of the new Azimut 80 yacht.
The swimming platform is incredibly large – almost 9 square metres – and provides plenty of room for the launch and retrieval of tenders exceeding 4 metres in length or of jet skis.
Further forward, the space is divided into a large sun deck that can comfortably accommodate four people, and an area with a ‘C’-shaped sofa just aft of the windscreen, with further storage.

Azimut 80 Yacht - Master Head
The fly: 42 square metres of versatile space lending itself to a variety of uses. The seating is a combination of ‘L’-shaped sofas that can be configured as desired. Alongside the helm, there are two sofas positioned in a ‘C’ facing the large table seating eight. The fly is an ideal place from morning to evening; a convenient and well-equipped bar unit has a barbecue, refrigerator and sink, but also houses a retractable 42-inch TV and constitutes the base for an elegant Plexiglas bar counter. Further aft, the second area offers maximum flexibility in terms of fittings: it can be left unencumbered, furnished with sofas, set aside for the tender or as a sun deck, or fitted with a hydromassage. The Azimut 80 yacht can also be constructed with an opening hard top and rolling awning towards the stern.

A sophisticated style is assured for the outdoor soft furnishings, lined in technological materials offering a ‘fabric’ effect. Coloured dark brown, they include some padded details.
In the engine room, the two 1550 hp MAN engines provide a top speed of 30 knots. The fuel tank has a capacity of 6,000 litres, while the water tank can contain 1,200 litres. As optional extras, the luxury yacht Azimut 80 can be fitted with electric CMC Marine stabilising fins or gyroscopic Seakeeper stabilisers.
