New Model: Azimut 50 Flybridge

As the above picture shows the finishing of this new Azimut was dedicated to the workers who build this awaited 50 model. An always important size for Azimut, meaning a client entering yacht segment and one of success for the most famous of the Italian builders. For this new model Azimut and designer Righini inspired themselves to one of there own recent successes the 2013 launched 80, which one year after its launch is a market sensation. But this new Azimut 50 has some interesting parts of its own, as the seventeen squared meters fly-bridge size which is among the largest in this size, and a three double cabin layout which includes a full beam owners room. In this model Azimut interior designer Galeazzi left the saloon for dining and relaxing areas, with a two parts split level saloon having a C-shaped settee forward to port side, and a relaxing saloon sofa aft. Below deck is the galley in between the three cabins, a concept which Azimut used in the smaller 47/48 model, and usually a design feature not much appreciated on fifteen meters plus sized flybridge motor yachts.
