Azimut 55 Fly concept set for world debut

In January, the 16.7m-flybridge project Azimut 55 will make her world debut at the 2018 Boot Dusseldorf.

She was designed by Stefano Righini and Achille Salvagni, who have joined forces to build the Italian shipyard’s latest project.

Stefano Righini designed the yacht's exterior, which starts out taut in the bow and then gradually softens towards the stern.

The key structural feature of the model is the outline of the flybridge, which extends further towards the sturn allowing for a sheltered living area. Located on the main deck in the bow, the sun lounging area can also be sheltered, using a deep bimini set. 

Azimut 55’s interior came from Achille Salvagni, who selected various contrasting materials to her finish, including grey zebrawood with dark oak and glossy black lacquer with metal inserts.

Three double cabins can be found on the lower deck, including the full-beam owner's suite, which is flooded with natural light let in through two large rectangular windows. 

The layout also features the captain's cabin with access from the transom, an elegant lounge on the main deck slightly raised above the lobby and two dining areas that can be served from the centred galley.

Powered by win 800 HP Volvo engines, Azimut 55 can reach a maximum speed of 31 knots. 

The boat is particularly user-friendly as a result of its Active Trim Control, the latest generation automated system that helps the vessel maintain even balance, and Electronic Power Steering, allowing users to customise the sensitivity of control functions and adjust the wheel turns and steering effort, according to speed and individual piloting style.
