New Model: Azimut 60

Azimut 60 presented for the first time at the latest Genoa Boat show 2011, is the natural evolution of the 2007 launched 58.  Based on the same hull lines of the 58, Azimut presents a new model with the 60 which follows patterns as seen on the 64 launched in the fall of 2010.  That is similar flybridge profile windows, and design patterns.  The 60 also improves in many areas of its layout from the full beam owners stateroom now with breakfast dining table as first shown in the now stop produced 68S in 2003, to a two berth crew cabin located aft.  The 58 featured a single crew berth option.  A first in this size comes in the crew cabin, with a bathing platform entrance door being a unique feature in a motor yacht of just eighteen meters.  If the crew cabin is located aft this is usually found in a hatch of the aft deck.  Other improvements if you compare this model to the 58 come from the bathing platform new being 40% more spacious, as is the increased size of the flybridge C-shaped settee, and L-shaped wet bar galley.  For the rest this model holds the pressure of following the success of the 2000 launched 55 which in a nine year production run has been delivered to over four hundred units.  But may be to this, it had to be the revolution that represented the 55 in its times, which reinvented the layout in the seventeen meter motor yacht size.
