Azimut Yachts to debut four new models at Cannes
Italian shipyard Azimut will be debuting four new vessels at Cannes this year.
It will introduce its two new Grande superyachts, the 35METRI and the 27METRI, and two smaller vessels, the Azimut S7 and the 60 Flybridge.
The Grande 35METRI features two guest rooms, an owner’s suite, and two separate crew rooms with interior design by Achille Salvagni. The vessel is powered by two MTU 16V2000 M93s and is made from carbon fibre.
The 27METRI offers similar specs, with a four-cabin layout and an option to extend to five, Achille Salvagni interior and a similar carbon fibre construction. She is powered by two MAN V12s and cruises at 24 knots with a max speed of 27.
The Azimut Grande Collection will also be returning to the Monaco Yacht Show from 27 to 30 September. The two yachts will be available for visits on board.
The S7 is a 21 metre sport vessel with a focus on performance, and the 60 Flybridge is an 18 metre yacht featuring a large flybridge and full-height windows typically not found on yachts this size.
Two unannounced models will be making a debut at Boot Dusseldorf next January.
Azimut has also signed two new dealership agreements in France and the UK, and is establishing new operations in Slovenia and Lithuania.
The shipyard signed an exclusive dealership agreement to create Azimut Yacht France as its new French dealer. It had previously been represented in France by Philippe Blattes Yachting for 22 years.
The newly-established Azimut Yachts UK team will be led by general manager Richard Cottrell. The team will be presenting at the upcoming Southampton International Boat Show from 15 to 24 September.
Azimut has signed its first agreements in Slovenia and Lithuania, which the company considers “both potential growth markets”. Azimut Yachts Slovenia and Azimut Yachts Lithuania will represent the company in the respective regions.
