Azimut 60 Flybridge

by Randy Woods

The new Azimut 60 Flybridge from Alexander Marine packs a punch, combining luxurious amenities, elegant finishes, and powerful performance all into one beautiful boat.

The new Azimut 60 Flybridge provides several luxury amenities often found on mega-yachts, but in a more compact form. Designed by Achille Salvagni Architetti, the interiors of the 60 feature three types of wood accents (brushed oak, Thai wood, and high-gloss mahogany) and ample natural light flooding into the salon from the large deck-to-ceiling windows. The open space aft can be converted into a dinette or a second lounge and comes with three types of tables to seat six comfortably. Guest accommodations include three cabins and one crew berth, along with three heads.

The aft al fresco area on the main deck features a marble-top dining table with teak edging, which can accommodate six to eight people, and comes with a rear window shade that can be raised or lowered to shield from the sun or increase privacy. The galley includes a range of appliances by Miele, including a dishwasher, plus a double sink, a wine cooler, and spacious cabinets with rounded edges.

The flybridge is divided into three sections – the helm station with two seats, an open-air sun lounge, and a dinette with bar. On the aft section, the flybridge extends to fit sofa seating for cocktail parties. Another space in the bow section provides the option of a sun-pad area or a secluded spot for conversation on facing settees.

Hull designer P.L. Ausonio Naval Architecture teamed with the Azimut R&D department to create the hull, with a deadrise 15.6° aft and 22° amidship. The use of carbon fiber and glass-reinforced plastic allows volumes and surfaces to be increased in size while keeping the same weight, which helps maintain an excellent level of dynamic stability. Carbon fiber lamination is applied to the flybridge and the optional hard top.

This beauty also hides a beast within, in the form of twin Volvo D13 900-horsepower engines that allow the Azimut to cruise at 26 knots, with an impressive maximum speed of 31 knots. At the helm, the Optimus Electronic Power Steering system by Seastar Solutions recreates the feel of a high-performance racecar. The responsiveness of the helm, however, is safely controlled by regulating wheel turns and steering effort according to speed. The system also eliminates the hydraulic piping between the helm station and the rudder compartment. Automatic interceptors give the vessel the lift it needs to get up on plane quickly or to reach optimal running trim, resulting in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.
