Project: Azimut 77S

The 77S project is one of three new models Azimut will launch in 2014, all announced to dealers during the 2013 Genoa boat show. With this latest addition to the S range Azimut and designer Righini follow the steps of the 55S launched in 2012. Same style bow, similar side windows in both lower deck and coach-roof, and most important on the technical side the repeat use of triple Volvo IPS pod propulsion. In this case the 77S is to be powered by triple Volvo 900hp engines with the large IPS1200 pod drives. While the exterior profile will make people who like modern lines fall in love with the new 77S, this new Azimut has a lot going for it also in its clever layout plans as designed by architect Galeazzi, which thanks to the pods and further aft located engines, features impressive spaces. Apart four spacious double guest cabins all with en-suite heads the 77S also surprise in the layout of its main deck; this having a large saloon, and dining table for eight. A separate C-shaped galley is located below in between the cabins. To amidships in behind the owners stateroom, and to fore of the engine room is two crew cabins sleeping four persons and sharing a shower head. As is standard in recent Sport Yachts of this size and similar to the smaller Azimut 72S, the 77S will also feature a sport fly-bridge this having a central helm, passenger companion seat to starboard, and a sun-pad looking aft aft.
