Azimut 45

Having received international awards for innovation, comfort and style, this prestigious new arrival’s design offers space along with elegance and privacy.

Known for its graceful style and innovation, Azimut is the leading producer of 40 to 100 feet luxury yachts, offering the most extensive range in the world.

The Italian designed Azimut 45 sets a new benchmark by re-examining the fundamental aspects of liveability and quality. The exterior and concept were created by one of Italy’s greatest nautical architects Stefano Righini, while the classic and sleek interiors are courtesy of designer Carlo Galeazzi. The lines of the yacht are harmoniously balanced, while dynamic profiles project the shape forward even when stationary. “Fish in particular have shapes that exhibit vitality, even when they are motionless they seem to dart. Nature inspires how I innovate the design of the deckhouse panes of glass, protracting them to the silhouettes of certain animals,” explained Righini. “In the side view the impression of dynamics bursting forth emerges and from the outside the windows reflect the foam and become a landscape painting.”

With two or three cabin options— each with a large central VIP compartment and flybridge attached as a modular unit at the stern— this multifaceted yacht boasts a 12m, versatile space that transforms from a dinette complete with dining table and a sofa area— with L or C shaped seating— to a spacious sundeck on a single level. The fly is designed to accommodate 10 people between seating, sundeck and steering station. Accessed by a handy stairway, this spacious terrace overlooking the sea covers the entire cockpit and the swimming platform can be either fixed or retractable. Oak interiors are a natural honey colour complimented by light Jakarta leathers and Azimut follows the construction philosophy of using natural dyes and materials. The keel of the boat is a classic variable dihedral, with an angle of 21 degrees amidship, that reproduces the optimal qualities in terms of wave absorption and performance. Righini employed a building method that ensures low environmental impact, high-quality construction and top-flight mechanical characteristics. The Azimut 45 is outfitted with twin 480 mhp (max) Cummins engines, shaft-mounted propellers and a max speed of 32 knots, and can carry 12 persons, with easy handling and docking options.
