Performance and space on board are two features of Atlantis 51, whose sporty lines were designed by Marco Biaggi and Filippo Salvetti, the owners of Neo Design, who have worked on the range since 2009.
Powered by two Volvo 800 (600HP) engines, with IPS transmissions and speeds of up to 35 knots, the yacht keeps a big below-deck dinette in addition to three cabins, including the owner’s suite in the bow with a vanity table with pouf and a small bookcase.
The Azimut 55 Fly features sleek exterior lines and interiors with soft and flowing shapes. The yacht’s two designers, Stefano Righini (exterior) and Achille Salvagni (interior), who has brought his original style language borrowed from residential architecture to the boat’s interiors.
The yachting season looks set to be positive for Azimut Yachts, which reports a plus-30 per cent rise in orders against the same period the previous year.
“The Grande collection has made a positive contribution to this performance,” commented Azimut Yachts Managing Director Marco Valle, “confirming its strategic role as announced in September at the start of the season, when the 24m and over segment was earmarked as the main driver of brand growth.
“Our launch strategy too, which aims to identify the best context for each product, has proved to be a winning one. Another key factor, is the support of a team of architects who have different styles and approaches, with whose help we are successfully bringing to market products with strong personalities, each addressed to a specific target.
“This is the approach on which the two new models, Atlantis 51 and Flybridge 55, are based. Two yachts packed with distinctive features that guarantee their success.”
At the Azimut stand in Hall six, the shipyard also showed its flagship products: the 60 Fly, the 50 Fly, the S7, and the Grande 30 Metri.
In addition to the two models presented at Dusseldorf, there will also be the S6 and the Grande 32 Metri, making a total of four launches from now until the next event on the Croisette.
