New Model: Azimut 60 Flybridge

An evolution of the species, the new Azimut 60 Flybridge is the direct heir to the 2000-2009 produced 55 which brought so much success to the Italian builder with five hundred units delivered in a production run lasting about nine years.  Unlike previous evolution's of the 55 that followed, the 58 and 60, which this model now replaces thanks to more length and beam adds more into its interior spaces.  For example in the new Azimut 60 Flybridge the lower deck offers three guest cabins and three heads; two of which en-suite for the owners stateroom and VIP cabin forward.  The third is a guest day head located by the stair case en-route to the cabins.  For the new 60 Flybridge exterior designer Righini who is with Azimut since the early nineties continues the pattern of third generation evolution which started its process with the 50 in 2014 and in this model sees the addition of the aggressive Alfa-style bow as introduced in the 55S in 2012. Power for the new Azimut 60 will come from Man 800hp or Volvo 900hp engines with a line shaft propulsion giving max speed up to 31 knots.
