Offering a range of sports yachts made from the finest materials, Azimut is known for building some of the best pocket sports yachts on the market. Here we take a look at two of the leading pocket sport yachts from the Azimut-Benetti Group brand.
The Azimut S6 from the S Collection is the second model launched from the yard’s new generation of sports yachts. The sleek and sporty exterior design is by Stefano Righini and features the yard’s iconic diamond-shaped deckhouse windows. The elegant interiors are the work of Francesco Guida and create an air of sophistication and calm. Featuring a carbon fibre deck, superstructure and platform, she offers more volume and surface size while remaining the same weight. Measuring 18-metres in length, this pocket sport open fly yacht has triple IPS propulsion for superior manoeuvrability and best fuel efficiency. The spacious and comfortable lounge area on the upper deck is the perfect place for entertaining as it is complete with a second helm station. With accommodation for up to six guests in three cabins, this includes a master ensuite cabin and VIP cabin. The main deck has an open gallery and saloon, with room for al-fresco dining aft. With a maximum speed of up to 35 knots, she is perfect for cruising through the Mediterranean.
The Azimut 68 offers everything a discerning owner would want in a sports yacht and more. The epitome of the phrase ‘world yacht,’ this new model offers three main deck layouts and a multifunctional zone for her owners to enjoy. Her striking yet sleek exterior style is the work of Alberto Mancini, while her light and airy interiors stem from Achille Salvagni Architetti. Measuring 20.98-metres in length, this cosmopolitan high-performance yacht feels more spacious than she is, thanks to her innovative layout design. Owners can decide between an open or closed galley layout for their main deck, depending on how they prefer the space to flow, while the main deck aft offers plenty of room for al-fresco dining, entertainment and leisure. The flybridge houses a second helm station, with room for sunpads and outdoor seating, while the lower deck houses guest and crew accommodation. Able to accommodate up to eight guests in four cabins, this includes the master cabin with an ensuite bathroom and a VIP cabin. Crew accommodations can welcome up to a crew of 3. With a top speed of 32 knots, this sporty yacht is perfect for island hopping.
