The combination of Carbon Tech and a propulsion system with three Volvo Penta IPS pods puts the yacht at the forefront of technology in its category, with the ability to achieve greater levels of efficiency combined with peerless handling and silent running. S6 will be presented as worldwide premiere at the next Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2018.
The little sister of the S7, the S6 is a pure coupé with sporty DNA. The exteriors are designed by Stefano Righini. The bow shield on the trapezoid bow and the glazed surfaces in the hull, distinctive features of the S generation, which on this model have been boosted in size. They’re rectangular in shape, giving the yacht an immediately recognisable profile and flooding the interiors with light, particularly in the owner’s suite.
The silhouette of the yacht is given an even more distinctive look by the big diamond-shaped deckhouse windows, which are built on slightly different planes and have diagonal joints.
Francesco Guida, on his second project with the shipyard, has decorated the interiors in style that draws on a modern and discreet sense of elegance.
The decor chosen for the launch sets off two different wood varieties, light and dark-coloured oak, against each other and combines them with wooden tops featuring original patterns and glossy finishes, as well as inserts inside shiny chrome-plated steel frames.
The result is a welcoming atmosphere bathed in warm colourways. Lighting plays a key role, the combination of traditional lights with the use of extra indirect sources gives the spaces an airier feel.
The lower deck, reached by means of a central stairway, contains a night area made up of three cabins and two heads.
The decision to use three VOLVO IPS700 engines together with the extensive use of carbon fibre for superstructure, bathing platform, garage and hard top delivers some major benefits, including fuel consumption efficiency, as well as vibration and noise reduction.
Another benefit of the triple propulsion system, besides a faster acceleration, is that it increases the distance between the external pivoting pods.
The compact engine room frees up space for a huge garage that can house a 3.3-metre-long hydrojet tender. On the S6 too, Azimut Yachts offers a personalised tender, the Pirelli J33 – Azimut Special Edition, built especially by Tecnorib.
