The new Azimut 72 has been entirely designed and built in the Avigliana boatyard in collaboration with Stefano Righini, who developed the model’s general concept and the style of the exterior while Carlo Galeazzi took care of the interior design.
The Azimut 72 combines two state‐of‐the‐art construction techniques. The hull and the deck are entirely made out of moulded fibreglass while the deckhouse and flybridge are made out of pure carbon fibre. This new production choice leads to a considerable reduction in weight, close to 30%, which can be exploited to obtain more extensive deck surfaces and greater internal volume, while maintaining the same displacement as its competitors in the same category.
With a length of 22.60 metres and a berth of 5.60 metres, the layout includes 4 cabins, all with en suite bathrooms, one of which is the yacht’s master cabin also with en‐suite bathroom and the typical full glass vertical window openings, allowing a total of 8 guests.
The flybridge is vast, over 37 square metres, designed for maximum versatility in terms of usage. The main deck ranges out over a single level from the cockpit to the stairs leading to the lower deck, without any steps or changing levels, with an extensive relaxation area, an open space kitchen and a double seat wheelhouse.
The style of the interiors, completely renovated to give this new version a very strong character, come either in bleached oak and glossy Ebony essence, or in natural heat‐treated oak essence and precious glossy Sycamore. Careful planning of the lighting design has enabled all fixtures to be completely encased in the ceilings and furnishings.
The performance of the Azimut 72 model, with two MAN V12 engines each producing 1400 HP, matches the craft’s sporting character. The cruising speed stands at 26 knots, while the top speed, according to the boatyard’s project data, reaches 31 knots.
