The new sport-weekender model, the Verve 48 will make its American debut, popular among those looking for a sporty model for weekend trips and days on the water. No stranger to the Verve series, Americans have purchased over 110 units in the last three years, in fact. The yacht design was completed by Francesco Struglia, in collaboration with Azimut, to build upon the success of the Verve 47. Powered by three 600hp Mercury outboards for a top speed of 50 knots. Compared to the Verve 47, the 48 has a larger stern area that leads to an extensive swim platform. A raised helm station also offers greater visibility and connection with the water around you.
Following its premier in Europe at the fall shows, the Magellano 60 will now make its first American premier at FLIBS. The Magellano 60 is the result of the latest R&D developments from Azimut|Benetti Group, including new solutions to reduce emissions without compromising on style and yacht design.
According to the team, the “Magellano 60, in fact, is the model Azimut chose for the first voyages powered by HVOlution. This biofuel produced by Eni Sustainable Mobility with 100% renewable raw materials*, combined with the high-efficiency semi-planing Dual Mode hull, has made it possible to reduce well-to-wake CO2 emissions by over 80% compared to a yacht of comparable size powered by fossil fuel.”
The Magellano 60 also uses a new automation system that uses Google Cloud and Reply in a new proprietary app to interact with the yacht remotely to control the “entertainment system, lighting, air-conditioning and appliances, as well as to monitor water and fuel levels in real time for optimum management of onboard resources.” * Pursuant to Directive (EU) 2018/2001 “RED II”.
The Grande 36m is Azimut’s 118ft superyacht with a new innovative walkaround upper deck that runs from the stern to the top of the bow. A new option for a yacht of this size, this barrier-free experience is heightened by glazed surfaces in the sky lounge that open and can completely disappear from view, creating a huge space with unobstructed views. The exterior yacht design was completed by Alberto Mancini with interior yacht design by Achille Salvagni. Another Azimut model to be part of the Low Emission Yachts family, the Grande 36M features “the high-efficiency D2P® Displacement-to-Planing hull, designed by P.L. AUSONIO Naval Architecture together with the Shipyard’s R&D office, and extensive use of carbon fiber reducing the weight of the superstructure.” This will help to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 30% compared to weights of similar size and hull design.
Another model in Azimut’s Low Emission Yachts line is the new S7, a lightweight, hi-tech sport yacht offering the most dynamic ride for owners. A Volvo IPS triple propulsion system is paired with advanced naval architecture to deliver maximum performance while reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 30% when compared to yachts of similar size. The 72ft sport yacht’s exteriors were completed in collaboration with Alberto Mancini, with Yachtique completing their first collaboration with Azimut Yachts on the yacht interiors.
Azimut Yachts will be on location at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from October 25 – 29 at stand Face Dock 7, 801 SEABREEZE BLVD.
