Italia – Azimut Yachts at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2016 with a fleet of 17 yachts, including the iconic Azimut 66 Fly


The new boat show season is about to get underway and this year Azimut Yachts is making an appearance in grand style at Europe’s leading in-water boating event held in Cannes.

The Italian brand in the Azimut|Benetti Group will be presenting the most comprehensive overview yet of its full range at the Cannes Yachting Festival, held this year from September 6 to 11. The five Collections in Azimut Yachts’ range of unmatched breadth will be exhaustively represented by 17 models, from the smallest in the fleet, the Azimut Atlantis 34, to the Azimut Grande 95RPH, which is riding high on the success of a series of striking novelties, including the raised deck and a flybridge offering over 60 m2 of space.
But the star of the show will be Azimut 66, the iconic new yacht in the Flybridge Collection. The latest model launched by the Avigliana-based company, making its first appearance at Cannes, joins Azimut’s most classically styled collection and has already reported excellent sales and positive reactions from brand enthusiasts.
The flowing lines designed by Stefano Righini and extensive use of carbon fibre, which significantly reduces the weight of the yacht and increases interior and exterior volumes, are the main features of a brand that has always stood proudly at the cutting edge.
The models sharing the spotlight with Azimut 66 Fly at Cannes will include Azimut Magellano 66, the 20-metre megayacht offering long range cruising freedom pampered by the comfort and elegance of home. The fifth model in the Magellano collection retains the distinctive Dual Mode hull from previous versions to guarantee comfortable cruising in any sea conditions and at any speed.
Then there is Azimut 72 Fly, the predecessor of Azimut 66 Fly and already a worthy representative of the innovative concept it embodies. Making extensive use of carbon fibre, it stands out in particular for its elegant proportions, which express a sporty mood but without settling for any compromises in terms of space.
Finally, of the smaller models on show, the sporty and determined Azimut Atlantis 43 deserves a special mention. The latest model in the Atlantis collection, it is a perfect testimonial for Azimut’s design flexibility and “Made in Italy” style, offering the chance to customise the interiors with fine Italian fabrics from Missoni Home and Loro Piana Interiors.
The edgy style and consummate quality of the yachts on show are made possible, as always, by ongoing research and development, accompanied by the constant improvement of production processes and their implementation. These are the features that allow the Avigliana-based shipyard to set the bar for Italian excellence from every perspective.
