AZIMUT YACHTS | The myth of the sea voyage

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he international Düsseldorf Boat Show, where Azimut Yachts presented the premiere of two new Italian-built yachts – Azimut Atlantis 51 and Azimut Flybridge 55 – was the setting where the Italian shipyard showed for the first time the several artworks by the photographer and artist Francesco Jodice, created specifically for Azimut Yachts. The works form an integral part of a three-year project entitled “The Voyage” which, through the study of antique documents, maps, travel journals and naval techniques, has the aim of reconstructing and interpreting the states of mind that accompany the myth of the sea voyage. The goal of the initiative is to identify potential new targets, in this particular case by exploring the world of art collectors with a passion for fine photography.

As to the new models, they are mainly characterized by performance and space on board. The sporty and aggressive lines of Atlantis 51 were designed by Marco Biaggi and Filippo Salvetti, the owners of Neo Design.

Sleek exterior lines and interiors featuring soft, flowing shapes, are the distinctive features of Flybridge 55, designed by Stefano Righini (exterior design and concept) and by Achille Salvagni (interior design), who with the shipyard have a long-standing relationship.
