The most awaited is certainly the new Azimut S10 (in the opening photo), signed by Alberto Mancini and Francesco Guida, respectively for the exterior and interior design. There is also a great deal of curiosity about the new flagship of the Fly range, the Azimut 78, also designed by Mancini with interiors by Achille Salvagni. Finally, the Atlantis 45, which the Italian public previewed in May, will also make its international debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival, from 10 to 15 September.
About 29 metres long, sporty and refined, built largely in carbon, the Azimut Grande S10 will be the flagship of the S Collection. Among the particular technological innovations of the Grande S10, the ultra-technological dashboard, made in partnership with Naviop, the electrochromic glass of the skilight made by Isoclima Cromalite and the latest generation technical solutions identified by the Azimut Innovation Lab as part of the ECS – Enhanced Cruising Solutions programme.
For the décor of the interiors, Francesco Guida stressed the importance of the concept of flexibility as a multiplier of space: the versatility of the environments of the layout as a tool to create new suggestions and a unique atmosphere.
For the new flagship of the Flybridge Collection, the Azimut 78, Mancini wanted to draw, from bow to stern, a continuous line that, creating plays of chiaroscuro, light and shadow, concave and convex surfaces, seems to extend upwards. This form of design, which the designer calls “infinite line”, and the sensation of momentum upwards are also evident on the Fly, where the handrail grip forms a unique piece with the roll-bar thus becoming an integral part of the design.
Inside you can breathe a soft atmosphere, a peculiar trait of the work of Achille Salvagni, who always prefers curved and sinuous lines to hard geometries. In the living space, the typical distinction between sofa and dining area is overcome, leaving room for a unique and refined environment. Salvagni’s stylistic signature, which is often inspired by art, makes the rooms elegant and refined, with furnishings that seem suspended and full-height glazing and with a skilful combination of delicate colours, from purple to sugar paper, in a path of style that is never taken for granted.
Atlantis 45, finally, is a project by the Neo Design studio and shows a good interior habitability thanks to both cabins – owner and guests – full-beam, and a galley and dinette in opposition to increase the functionality of movement. The new Azimut Atlantis 45 is equipped with two Volvo IPS 600 (435 hp) to reach a top speed of more than 33 knots.
