Representing a new epoch of sports motoryacht, the 21 meter long Azimus S7 extends and enriches Azimut Yachts’ sports collection and reputation for crafting performance vessels of the highest standard.
The use of carbon fiber in the superstructure and the pivoting platform has made it possible to increase the volume of the boat without affecting the overall weight, optimising performance. This, in conjunction with the triple IPS technology, improves performance and consumption while also providing even more deck space. The result is a livable below deck area—measuring a remarkable 13 meters in length—as well as a garage with space for both a 3.25 meter tender and a jet ski.
In terms of performance, the S7 delivers a superlative sports experience, featuring three Volvo !PS 1,050 propulsion units, each equipped with an 800 hp engine, enabling maximum speeds of more than 35 knots when fully fitted out. The Advanced Cruising Solutions (ACS) program introduces active trim control, to adjust the yacht’s longitudinal trim; the driving joystick; the integrated onboard control and monitoring system; and the auto balance system that transfers fuel from tank to tank to adjust transverse trim in changing load conditions—a wealth of features designed to maximise performance.
The S7 additionally features exteriors designed by Stefano Righini, which extend the collection’s signature features, and also an unprecedented diamond-shape deckhouse window, giving the boat personality but also amazing with its plays on reflected light. The boat’s interiors are designed by Francesco Guida and feature a 19 m2 owner’s suite, which is further divided by partitions and mirrors into four separate areas, each with its own function. The galley has been moved to the main deck, in the bow, to ensure ease of use without imposing on the big living area.
The Azimut S7 will make its official debut at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival.
