Azimut unveils 21m S7 with Coupe and Sportfly versions
Published: Friday, 31 March 2017
Available in Coupe and Sportfly versions, the new 21m Azimut S7 embraces the sports motoryacht concept with advanced carbon fibre technology, extending the shipyard’s sports collection. The model will make its official debut at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival.

Designed by Stefano Righini, the exteriors features diamond-shaped deckhouse window. The use of carbon fibre in the superstructure and the pivoting platform has increased the volume of the boat without affecting its overall weight.
The triple IPS technology improves performance and consumption as well as provides more below deck space, which is 13m in length, plus a garage with space for both a 3.25m tender and a jet ski. This leaves the stern clear when the garage is closed, while the pivoting platform creates a terrace on the sea.
Francesco Guida creates the interiors, which highlight the 19m2 owner’s suite. It is divided into four different areas with its specific function and separated by partitions, mirrors and translucent materials. There are also three cabins below deck.
The interior styling comes with a determined, very masculine personality. There are two versions, the first employing warmer colours and the second more high-tech. The latter style was chosen for the first unit, which features a series of variations on grey and uses materials such as glossy black flamed oak and tay wood.
The galley has been moved to the main deck, in the bow, to ensure ease of use without penalising the big living area, which extends across both interior and exterior spaces. There are two lounging areas, an interior one served by two coffee tables that can be transformed into a big table seating eight and a stand for a 55-inch TV, and a large exterior cabinet with bar counter.
The S7 is fitted with three Volvo IPS 1,050 propulsion units, each equipped with an 800hp engine, that drive the yacht to a maximum speed of more than 35 knots when fully fitted out.
On a technical level, the Advanced Cruising Solutions (ACS) programme introduces the active trim control to automatically adjust the yacht’s longitudinal trim, the driving joystick, the integrated onboard control and monitoring system, and the auto balance system that transfers fuel from tank to tank to adjust transverse trim in changing load conditions.
The Azimut S7 has been issued with the shipyard’s HTS High Technical Standard declaration. The yacht is also eligible for CE A and NMMA certification for boats under 24m.
More details about the new S7 will be released in the coming months.
