Performance and space on board are two of the most obvious features of this open with sporty, aggressive lines, designed by Marco Biaggi and Filippo Salvetti, the owners of Neo Design, which since 2009 has worked on the entire range.
Atlantis 51 offers plenty of welcoming, airy space, thanks to the generous beam which measures a full 4.5 metres.
With the DNA of a pure open and a design featuring the distinctive vertical bow, this model has been created for people who want to spend the entire day in the open air, without compromising on absolute comfort in the interiors too.
That is why the main deck is like a big open air lounge area. In addition to the spacious sun lounging areas both fore and aft, the deck is designed and furnished to create a sophisticated living area to relax in, which can be quickly converted into a dinette for lunch.
In fact, facing the classic C-shaped sofa is a second one, which can be split if needed to form two poufs, arranged around a coffee table that can be converted into a big, comfortable dining table, so creating a fully-appointed dining area.
Turning to the interiors, also designed by Biaggi and Salvetti, Azimut has managed to keep a proper dinette in addition to three cabins, which are the defining feature of this best-in-class model in its segment.
The big dinette with a folding table on the Lower Deck provides the utmost in comfort to dine or simply relax while sharing the pleasure of the galley opposite.
The owner’s suite in the bow features a big full-height space, a vanity table with pouf, and a small bookcase.
It is also flooded with natural light entering through the double ceiling and side windows. The VIP cabin in the centre of the boat has been designed as a second owner’s suite, offering the option of a double bed that can be converted into twin beds with the help of practical sliding guide tracks.
This cabin too has a vanity area, plus plenty of storage space. The third and final cabin has bunk beds and is extremely generously sized, while the big side window provides lots of natural light.
The engine room plays host to two engines Volvo 800 (600 HP), with IPS transmissions: the top speed of 35 knots speeds up trips between one bay and the next, while the transmission delivers great manoeuvrability and makes the yacht easy to drive. Azimut Atlantis 51 cruises at a speed of about 32 knots.
On board liveability and comfort are also ensured by a garage that can contain a 3.25 metre jet tender.
