[dropcap]M[/dropcap]odernity, power, design and sportiness is what characterizes the new Azimut model that has made her sudden debut at the last Cannes Yachting Festival 2019, together with the other novelties S10, Azimut 78 and Atlantis 45.
Brimming with charm, the new build Azimut S8, adopts the new style codes expressed by Alberto Mancini in this extraordinary Collection, in which he interprets drive, innovation and sportiness in their most sophisticated and intriguing way.
Showing a design that is both aggressive and refined at the same time, the 24.63 meter-long model, stands out for her highly innovative technology, combining the extensive use of Carbon Tech with a triple installation Volvo Penta IPS propulsion system to deliver undisputed benefits in terms of performance, quiet running, manoeuvrability, consumption and comfort.
The layout features four cabins on the lower deck and a closed galley on an intermediate deck. The Main Deck concept is an alternation of lounge and dining areas, characterised by seamless continuity extending across the interior and exterior design.
In the stern, the Pivoting Platform Expander system makes it easy to extend the swim platform. The perfection of the layout is completed by crew quarters consisting of two cabins with access through a side door aft of the superstructure.
The interiors are by Francesco Guida and are available in two decor versions: Platinum and Black Pearl. The latter is going to be presented at Cannes. Both cosy and sophisticated, they stand out for the colours and materials used for the furnishings.
At technical level, many of the solutions proposed by the ECS (Enhanced Cruising Solutions) programme have been used: active trim control, which automatically adjusts the boat’s trim and ensures the best possible consumption efficiency; joystick driving, which maintains the course set at all speeds, guarantees comfortable, safe driving with perfect control, and provides an intuitive, user-friendly interface; and, finally, an integrated onboard control and monitoring system, which also includes an interface system with the main services, including air conditioning in the yacht’s various settings.
