New Model: Azimut S6

During Azimut most expected event of the year the Yachting Gala, which for 2018 was held in the suggestive location of Monopoli in the South Italy region of Puglia, the famous yacht builder presented its new latest model the S6.  The Azimut S6 is based on the 55S, see identical beam but a longer hull by seventy centimeters, which allows for bigger triple Volvo 550hp engines versus the 435hp units of the 55, and a more spacious aft deck.  The Azimut 55S introduced in 2012 was the fore bearer of the second generation S series and one of the best sellers of the Italian boat builder in the last five years, with an impressive demand also in brokerage.  The S6 is recognizable thanks to a different window design featuring latest elements as introduced by Stefano Righini and the Italian boat builder newer models.  So far complete specifications and layout are not to be found so we cannot say if there is more difference then the details mentioned.  At this stage it seems that the Azimut S6 and the 55S will co-exist, which is understandable considering the success the later has enjoyed.
