New Model: Azimut 72 Flybridge

This is the 3.0 revolution of the Flybridge Collection by Azimut Yachts. In 2013 with its Azimut 80 the Italian boatyard had come up with a complete new vision of the classic flybridge model. Then, in 2014, it applied the same successful style solutions to its Azimut 50 model and today with the brand new Azimut 72 it is taking another step forward by marrying this elegant yet revolutionary style with advanced construction techniques. The 72 model is constructed in an advanced technique aimed to save weight. The hull and the deck are entirely made out of molded fiberglass while the upper structure and flybridge are made out of carbon fiber. This new production choice leads to a considerable reduction in weight, close to 30%, which can be exploited to obtain more extensive deck surfaces and greater internal volume, while maintaining the same displacement as its competitors in the same category. From a general point of view, the designer Stefano Righini, sums up the design effort made on the concept for this new model:
