New Model: Azimut 100

Designed as all Azimut's minus the explorer Magellano line up by Stefano Righini, the 100 is a two and a half deck super yacht, with as tradition or inventor is full of huge view windows in all areas, and carries the traditional form follows function layout of the North Italian boat builder.  The standard accommodation plan features four guest cabins, with owners stateroom located to midships.
