[dropcap]N[/dropcap]icknamed “the ultimate boating machine”, Verve 47 is designed for an extremely modern owner attracted by the prospect of reaching his favourite hotspots quickly in an exciting, high-performance craft. The original design of the helm station makes the new model from Azimut Yachts the perfect boat to go island hopping and enjoy a 360 degrees marine experience.Francesco Struglia’s work on the Verve 47 takes the intensely exciting ride typical of centre consoles to the next level: the helm station has been enhanced with a side window that creates a remarkable sense of continuity with the outside world. Indeed, the driver enjoys a special bond with the water.The flow line defined by the windows sets the tone for the deck’s development in a circular play of contrasts and light. The design of the windows also facilitates communication between the driver and the yacht’s interior, which is designed to form part of an ensemble with the exterior, in such a way as to create a product in which a sporty personality and ultimate comfort live together in perfect harmony.
Two night cabins: the owner’s double cabin in the bow and a second cabin in the stern with twin beds. The bathroom has a separate shower stall.Turning to the materials, the new-concept laminates chosen for the interiors offer the handfeel of wood in a very hi-tech setting, while the “shockwave” pattern of the synthetic teak aims to exploit the full potential of a choice that is both ecological and practical.Azimut Yachts has worked to obtain the maximum from the interior and exterior spaces. The roomy cockpit, with its fully recessed high-low table and a swing-down side wall equipped for entering the water, can be used for different purposes at different times of day: a dining area, a place to relax and sunbathe, sea-facing ‘party’ space. The relaxation area in the bow has an asymmetrical layout that can accommodate additional comfortable seating and a big sun pad.
The spacious and welcoming outdoor area in the stern has everything needed to relax and enjoy the open air life, including a multipurpose unit fitted with a wet bar, fridge, ice maker, barbecue, hob and sink. The setup is completed by a TV that can be raised and lowered. The full-beam dinette-galley amidships is designed to offer even more relaxation, with an L-shaped sofa seating three, a table with a fixed stainless steel base and, on request, a wine cooler.The storage area in the stern can accommodate two seabobs and an inflatable paddle board, with easy-to-reach stowage space for the fenders next to the console.Verve 47 has four Mercury Verado V8 four-stroke outboard engines rated 450 hp each, driving the boat to a top speed of 50 knots and a cruising speed of 37 knots.
