FlybridgeAs realized aboard the 103S, and for the first time on an Open of this size, Azimut Yachts offers a generous flybridge with a helm station that is accessed via a steel and teak stairway. Sixteen and a half square meters of terrace on the sea that provides an intimate setting for owner and guests.
Aft, two large chaises lounges can be accommodated, designed by Azimut Yachts in cooperation with AISR with a project of Rotational Design. Forward, on the port side, is the sofa with a table and a cabinet fridge.
Forward to starboard an innovative integrated driver's seat enables full navigation also from the upper bridge, thanks to the new-generation pilot joystick integrated in the right arm allows not only mooring maneuvers in port but makes the flybridge seat an alternative helm station to the main one from which to navigate in all sea conditions. The ergonomic seat is upholstered with two-tone gold and beige leather enriched with parts in mother-of-pearl ABS, including the joystick for the flaps together with the Raymarine control pad interfaced with a 15" touch screen for control of the navigation (GPS) and of the onboard installations (engines, CCTV monitoring, systems). The power seat is adjustable in three directions: height, longitudinal and back inclination.
ExteriorsThe roomy cockpit (approx. 10 m2) features a large C-shaped bench, two toned with pearl and gold, with a double table that when lowered converts into a large sunpad (5.5 m2) which can be shaded thanks to a pull-out canvas shade at the rear of the flybridge.
Beneath the cushions, to port, is the two-person seaman's cabin with two beds and a separate head; from here access is gained to the engine room as well. The exterior furnishings are extremely innovative and well designed, through the introduction of two-tone furniture that repeats the nuances of the exterior cushions, continuing the play of contrasts and stylistic continuity between interior and exterior.
In particular, the integrated cabinet positioned on the port side includes a barbecue, a retractable sink and a fridge. The large garage with a carbon glass door can accommodate a 3.20 m tender and is equipped with an Opacmare crane that makes launching the tender much easier, also thanks to the large swim platform that can be electrically lowered 50 cm beneath the surface of the water and can also accommodate a jet ski (capacity 500 kg).
Main DeckA four-leaf glass door with the fixed leaf to starboard leads into the saloon, where the mingling of the interior and external environments typical of the Open line reaches its maximum expression. The large saloon is surmounted by a power-controlled glass ceiling with UV protection. Beneath it is a dining table for six persons, expandable to eight, for candlelight dinners beneath the stars, with a window on the sky measuring 4.6 m2.
The saloon's design stands out for the longitudinal elements that underscore its depth and symmetry: two L-shaped sofas with poufs, the large extendable table made of wood and metallic painted glass, the furnishings, the dark zebrawood floors alternated with 100% wool bouclet carpeting.
The contrasts between light and dark colors are especially evident in the internal rooms, elegant and contemporary. The intensity of the dark zebrawood highlights the gleam of the lacquers, while the brown of the leather of the suspended-effect furniture is enriched by the ivory buffalo of the tops.
Important details enrich the concept of onboard comfort, like the lighting design featuring integrated light panels for indirect radiant lighting, thus reducing the number of direct lighting points in favor of atmospheric settings.
Positioned to port is the central helm station, with two power adjustable white leather seats and equipped with standard instrumentation of the Raymarine G Series. Peak navigating and maneuvering comfort is guaranteed by the integrated Motronica systems and the new-generation joystick, which combine technological solutions like Easy Docking with the trolling system, mounted on the 72S on the ZF reversing gears, that makes it possible to maintain low, constant speeds in the maneuvering phase.
Functional and light, the lateral door opposite to the wheelhouse is laminated in Carbon Fibres and the opening is controlled electrically. This allows to the crew a very easy and quick use of this access.
Going down to the lower deck one is struck by the magnolia lacquer of the galley, which Boffi designed exclusively for Azimut, positioned to starboard. The galley is completely separate from the rest of the rooms by means of a sliding door and is accessorized with Miele appliances: dishwasher, oven, wine cooler and four-burner glass-ceramic cooktop beneath two openable portholes. Three comfortable cabins, each with its own private head, ensure maximum comfort for both owner and guests.
The master cabin is amidship, at the level of the now famous square windows opened in the hull, designed by Stefano Righini. Advanced technological solutions like the iBoat® audio system connected to the boat's Bose system and the play of scenic lights and chromotherapy make this room an area to live at any time of day.
The bed is placed longitudinally, with the frame upholstered with dark brown leather and the headboard and ceiling panels of buffalo-print leather. In front of the windows on the starboard side a convenient dinette has been included, complete with vanity and tray top. To port, the large walk-in closet with an openable porthole offers lots of room, with a chest of drawers, storage spaces and a large wardrobe with a fold-out mirror.
The VIP cabin, in the bow, offers six large storage spaces with a large double drawer under the bed. The large scenic windows flood the cabin with natural light by day, and innovative luminous doors make it warm and intimate in the evening.
The twin cabin is positioned to port and offers a private bath which also functions as day head. In the gangway leading to the master cabin, in a space hidden behind the port bulkhead, is positioned the Hoover washer-drier. All the baths feature zebrawood floors that are impermeabilized and treated to prevent slipping, as are the gratings in the showers. The sinks are of laminated glass and gold leaf, and the counter tops of lacquered metalized wood. The large shower in the master bath has a glass door and is complete with hydromassage and chromotherapy.
Technology and PerformancesThe Azimut 72S, type approved in Class A, is completely made by infusion to guarantee the perfect balance of weight and strength with maximum respect for the environment and eco-compatibility. The latest Open model also guarantees maximum stability in the water thanks to a set of peculiarities: a high degree of tightness strength of the openings, emptying speed in case of water entering, strength and height of the protections on the walkways and in the maneuver areas, and maximum downflooding angle. The deckhouse, flybridge and stern door are made of carbon glass to give the boat lightness and strength. Stability is further ensured during navigation and at anchor thanks to the possibility of installing two Seakeeper gyrostabilizers in the stern area. Among the first to install them in the sector, the Azimut 72S features brand-new MAN V12 engines, 1800 hp each, that drive the boat to a top speed of over 39 knots. Great performances are also ensured by the choice of five-blade propellers for increased efficiency.
