The new Azimut 62S Italia – for Italy
Published: Sunday, 01 January 2012
With a compact contour like all the brand's sporty boats, its retractable hard top and airy interiors are this yacht's distinctive characteristics. The openable hard top is a genuine masterpiece. It is made with double curved glass, both lengthwise and crossways, covered with UV-resistant film. It is like a window on the sky, which gives full expression to the sporty personality and sense of opening outwards, even with the top closed.
The stern area easily converts from an entertaining or dining area, with chairs and table, into a large sun-bathing platform. The cockpit's side stairs go down to the lifting platform, part of its standard features. This is the entrance to the crew cabin, which was completely revamped to comfortably accommodate two crew members and make space to mount the Seakeeper gyro-stabilizer.
The interior has also been revamped to be coordinated with the new decor collection. Zebra wood finishes are done on all the furnishings. Contrasting with the steel details, it is also used in the kitchen. The galley can be completely isolated from the rest of the boat with sliding doors, which means crew can handle meal preparation, or the meals can be a family and friends affair, depending on the mood. There are three cabins. In the bow cabin, there is a king-size bed that can be transformed into twin beds set at a V. For the captain, a "birds-eye view" device, developed by Azimut-Benetti's R & D Department, was added. This is a system of three video cameras for mooring that makes high-precision maneuvers possible when tying up at the end of the day.
The engines chosen for this new series are 1150 horsepower. This means that this boat can run at speeds above 36 knots, to the delight of performance seekers and those wanting the wind-in-the-hair experience while cruising on the flybridge.
