Last Saturday Azimut Benetti revealed the newest offerings from the company headed by Paolo Vitelli in a world premier staged against the magnificent backdrop of Venice, Italy. The sporty Azimut 45 and Atlantis 44 were moored in front of the Hotel Excelsior Lido, the grand finale of an 18th century Venice themed evening: masks, costumes, Venetian Republic Heralds and the Rondò Veneziano Chamber Orchestra paved the way for the triumphant appearance of the new arrivals.
Certainly the most innovative element of the Azimut 45 is convertibility. The entire yacht has several areas designed with flexible, modular arrangements that allow a transformation of the space according to the requirement, or whim, of the moment. Designers Stefano Righini e Carlo Galeazzi collaborated with the shipyard to create a yacht that is roomy, comfortable and adjustable. For instance, the cockpit can be converted from a relaxation area into a dining area and interior spaces can be configured in different layouts to better accommodate different uses and allow maximum livability even in tight quarters.
The Atlantis 44’ was selected by Volvo Penta for the exclusive debut of their very powerful D6 400 Z-drive diesel engine. The innovative and conceptually revolutionary engine boasts a faster sprint and a top speed exceeding 36 knots. The engine is also designed to maintain cruising speeds at lower RPMs, enabling a significant reduction in fuel consumption. In addition, this lightweight and compact engine has noticeably reduced noise and vibration levels for greater passenger comfort.
