The New Zealand distributor for Azimut Yachts, Pinnacle Marine and Automotive is reporting strong interest in the Italian range, especially around the newly released S7 model, with the company also taking recent orders for a Magellano 43 and 72 Flybridge models for kiwi buyers.
A new model to the Azimut range and launched in September at the Cannes Yachting Festival, the 21m Azimut S7 is ideal for those who want performance without sacrificing contemporary, sophisticated design. Azimut will offer the S7 in both a Sportfly and Coupe version.
The S7 comes powered by triple 800hp Volvo IPS 1050 drives, delivering a top speed of 35 knots.
The extensive use of carbon fibre in the S7 has allowed Azimut to create more volume while keeping weight and centre of gravity lower in the hull, and naturally increasing performance usually reserved for smaller sports boats.
This volume creates a 13m long living area, 4 spacious and beautifully appointed guest cabins – crew accommodation and a garage to store both a 3.25m tender and personal watercraft aft.
A pivoting stern platform creates onboard guests their own private beach into the water.
The S7 is one of four new models for the Italian builder having also released at the recent Cannes Boating Festival - new 60 Flybridge, Grande 27 METRI and Grande 35 METRI all add to the every growing range from Azimut Yachts. The later two models are the new additions to the shipyard’s exclusive Grande Collection. On both, the use of carbon fibre has made it possible to increase the onboard space while retaining excellent levels of static and dynamic stability – all four models took home awards in recent independent boating awards.
