Exciting news about the Flybridge Collection from Azimut Yachts, which once again puts a new spin on the strategic size of 18 metres. The yacht has many features found only on bigger boats, as with its very effective separation of crew and guests. Styling and illumination outside, inside with three cabins and two bathrooms, plus crew area.
As the size of the boat increases, so do the privacy needs of its owner. Large boats have a careful separation between the spaces and even the passageways used by crew and guests. With a hull of 18 metres, this is a feat that only very few can achieve. In designing the Azimut 60 project, this was viewed as a distinct need, and it found expression in the spacious layout of the crew cabin, with two beds and a separate entrance from the stern platform. The positioning of the beds can be changed if the Seakeeper anti-roll system is installed, which allows two separate beds to be converted into twin beds.
The design of the interiors is faithful to the new trends with Azimut flybridge, with the play of light contrasts between oakwood (honey colour) and cream-coloured valances. The living zone flexes its muscles: inundated with light from side windows, it is an area of abundant comfort, where such quality details as furniture that hides the television and sofas create an environment of ample hospitality. The galley, outfitted with anti-roll furnishings and shock-absorbing drawers, is found in a raised position on the main deck and connects directly with the dinette, in keeping with contemporary trends where cooking itself forms an integral part of convivial moments on board.
The lower deck accommodates three cabins. The full-beam, full-height master cabin is positioned at the centre of the boat, illuminated by two large windows, each with three vertically divided panels, in order to provide uninterrupted contact with the seascape. A sitting area, located along the starboard wall near the window, forms a perfect complement to the large double bed positioned at a 45- degree angle on the opposite side. The VIP cabin is located in the bow, with dimensions and space that are truly remarkable. A third cabin welcomes guests with two twin beds, a large wardrobe, and cabinets. The heads play an important role, with the owner’s bathroom being full-beam, one-of-a-kind on the market for this size.
On the exterior, the Azimut 60 picks up the elements that characterise the Flybridge collection, including the trademark fin on the deckhouse and in the play of the curved line of windows, creating a profile that is unmistakeable even from a distance. The fly is extremely spacious, with two sundecks large enough to accommodate up to five guests. The space at the stern is open and can accept a second tender if desired. Also, it's possible to arrange for a fixed hard top supported by the central roll bar.
