Azimut Yachts has released details of their newest model in the Flybridge Collection the all-new 68.
The new Azimut 68 is a high-tech yacht with a selection of three different layouts on the main deck to suit any lifestyle. It raises the bar of innovation, conceived by Azimut to capture the interest of markets around the world by offering customers the opportunity to choose the way they prefer to live onboard.
In the first layout, an elegant living area is located by the main deck entrance, with the galley tucked away behind an innovative surface of ribbed wood and plexiglass. This solution, called Lanterna, closes the galley off to create privacy, but enables the light to flow through the entire space to create a luminous, spacious environment.
For owners who are seeking a more convivial layout, the open galley version is the ideal solution. The galley is in a discreet location towards the bow, but opens directly into the dining area, which can also be converted into a second lounge zone.
For a slightly less formal layout, the aft galley arrangement is situated to readily serve indoors and more often outdoors, while keeping the cook connected with the entire social area. The dining is found immediately across from the galley as you enter from the cockpit, creating a relaxed flow, which leads to the living area forward.
Each main deck option has been tastefully integrated into the overall design to complete a stunning yacht. Below deck, four cabins and three bathrooms accommodate up to eight guests in absolute comfort, with a separate area for one or two crew members.
The propulsion package of twin Volvo IPS 1350 pods carries the Azimut 68 up to a brisk maximum speed of 32 knots. The extensive use of carbon fibre in the upper parts, including the superstructure, hardtop and part of the deck, lend the yacht a low centre of gravity, for excellent stability and cruising comfort, even considering the expanded volumes.
