The new 15-metre Azimut 50 yacht

Azimut 50 yachtThe Azimut Yachts Flybridge collection gets a new member with the launch of the Azimut 50 next month. This new 15-metre yacht will make its world debut at the 2014 September and October boat shows.

The design details are inspired by the Azimut 80, the model which has proved to be incredibly popular on the international market this season. Designed by Stefano Righini, some of the eye-catching features include the single mirrored glass window on the deckhouse with similar detailing on the fly, the decidedly impressive size of the bow area, and the classic vertical windows on the hull. The exterior spaces are given priority including a sizeable cockpit and enormous flybridge with its 17.5 m2.

Designed by Carlo Galeazzi, the interiors include a saloon, dining area with relaxation area, below deck galley, and lobby leading to the cabins. The boatowners cabin is amidships at full beam and the VIP cabin is towards the bow. Thanks to the sizeable interiors, space has also been found for a third cabin with two pullman beds.

The two Volvo Penta D11, 670 HP straight shaft engines provide a maximum speed of 30 knots and cruising speed of 26-27 knots.

The new 50-foot Flybridge will be on the water in June 2014, ready for its debut at autumn boat shows around Europe and the USA.
