New Model: Azimut 62S Italia

Azimut presents the new 62S Italia.  This new sport yacht model which sits in the middle of the Azimut S Collection fleet modifies the 62S launched in 2005, with some important changes.  From the outside the Italia difference is very minimum, with Azimut choosing well to stick to the sleek Stefano Righini designed lines, extending about one feet to the bathing platform, new bigger full glass sunroof, and larger aft cockpit deck. Another change in the aft deck is that for a C-shaped settee, instead of the sun pad, and tender stowage garage now being removed, this increasing the space in the area above and below.  Inside, one of the most important changes of the 62S Italia is for a standard three double cabins layout with two in line berths.  A third head has also been added.  While the crew cabin, again taking advantage of the tender garage removal; is now a more spacious two berths layout.  Power is from twin Cats 1150hp, again the Italia having an increase 100 horses per engine.  This giving an increase in top speed of three nautical miles per hour, now the 62S Italia reaching 37 knots of max.  So far the ZF pods are not mentioned in the specification, although the 62 S was the test bench for the big propulsion units.
