Azimut Yachts will have four world premieres at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2017, 12 to 17 September, while Benetti will officially present the new Fast 125’ Skyler, a four deck semi-wide body yacht equipped with the new generation propulsion system designed by Rolls Royce specifically for the Fast 125’ family.

The Azimut Grande 35 METRI (pictured above) is the new flagship in Azimut Yachts’ most exclusive line, the Grande Collection.

The interiors are designed by world renowned architect Achille Salvagni, the exteriors are by Stefano Righini.

The yacht has a Wide Body with Raised Pilot House (RPH) and supremely sleek exteriors, featuring exceptionally sized full-height windows in both the bow and salon. Unique in this category is the option to add an additional sundeck (almost 30-square-metres) on a third level, with access from the upper deck in the stern. The entire superstructure and hardtop are made from pure carbon fibre.


The carbon-fibre technology used on the Azimut Grande 27 Metri has given the freedom to expand the onboard volumes to new frontiers without penalizing the dynamic stability of the vessel. The result is a 27meter Wide Body with a full beam owner’s suite on the main deck and a lower deck layout with three or four cabins.

The exteriors, designed by Stefano Righini, propose the new collection’s signature features: a vertical bow in the upper section and the two side full height windows which provides an amazing sea view from the master cabin. The interiors have been designed by Achille Salvagni, who created three different alternative decors: Dolce Vita, Gran Milano and Riviera.

The exteriors of Azimut S7 have been designed by Stefano Righini and propose not only the collection’s signature features, but also an unprecedented diamond-shaped deckhouse window. The interiors are the work of Francesco Guida who, in his first project for Azimut Yachts, has revolutionized the solutions typically adopted on this type of boat.

The triple Volvo IPS technology used for the propulsion system, as well as improving performance and consumption, also provides an additional benefit in the form, resulting in a 13metre livable below deck area and a garage. This yacht is available in the two versions Coupé and Sportfly.

The Azimut Yachts Flybridge Collection is joined by the new 60, which is set to become a style icon in the international yachting world.

The exterior design and concept by Stefano Righini is characterised by sleek, aggressively attractive lines, which are complemented by the stylistic features of the Azimut 60, like the trapezoid bow combined with big diamond-shaped windows in the pilot house and the cutaway gunwales next to the saloon, providing an unimpeded sea view from the interior. The extraordinarily sized flybridge also offers unprecedented livability.

The interiors designed by renowned architect Achille Salvagni (one of AD Collector’s top 100 international designers) conjure up a sporty travelling atmosphere that is also elegant, practical and sophisticated.

The Azimut 60 FLY will be offered in two versions or “worlds”: Riviera and Gran Milano. In both, polished dark surfaces and woods alternate with surfaces and ceiling sections treated with light-coloured wood and the extensive use of leather. The layout features three cabins and three bathrooms plus the crew cabin, while the two 800 mHP MAN engines deliver a speed of 32 knots and guarantee total comfort.

Built in composites and carbon in Benetti’s Viareggio shipyard, the Fast 125’ Skyler is a four deck semi-wide body yacht. The sporty exterior was designed by Stefano Righini, while her luxurious interior was designed by Redman Whiteley Dixon.

The owner, an experienced yachtsman, requested many custom touches, such as widespread use of loose furniture from famous design brands such as Glyn Peter Machin, Sutherland, Minotti and Meridiani. Skyler is equipped with the new generation propulsion system designed by Rolls Royce specifically for the Fast 125’ family: the Azipull Carbon 65 (AZP C65).

All motor yachts will be available for inspection and sea trials upon request.
