May 13, 2013


After the two prestigious awards received in the 2012 World Yacht Trophies during the latest edition of the Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes, once again Azimut 55S is under the spotlight for technological innovations and brilliant solutions in the concept design.

On the occasion of the 30th Palma Boat Show, which ended May 5th last in Palma de Mallorca, the latest model of the sport collection among Azimut Yachts motoryachts, designed by Stefano Righini and Carlo Galeazzi, received the award for best boat under 20m. Among the reasons that have contributed to the important achievement: the adoption of the triple Volvo IPS-1 system with pod - unusual on motoryachts of this size - the weight reduction and strength of the structure made of glass-carbon composite, the layout design with three cabins for owner and guests located amidships, the sliding hard top that can be completely opened, the continuity between internal and external spaces mainly due to the one level flat deck and a brand new pivoting bathing platform that facilitates the launch and retrieve of the tender.

Besides the Azimut 55S, visitors to Palma Boat Show 2013, could admire the Azimut 88, 53 and 48 presented by Marina Estrella, exclusive Azimut Yachts and Atlantis dealer for Spain, broker and leading distributor in Iberian area for over forty years.
