New Model: Azimut S8

2019 is an important year for Azimut as for the famous Italian marquee this represented an evolutionary process, with new head designer Alberto Mancini taking over design duties from the since 1992 Stefano Righini.  The Mancini Azimut revolution started at a fast pace presenting three new models at Cannes boat show; the Grande S10, 78 Flybridge, and the S8 announced only one week prior to the important South of France festival.  The S8 brings Mancini design sophistication, adding a new ingredient to the clean Azimut Righini lines.  With the Azimut S8 Mancini emphasizes the Italian straight horizon lines with fat bulwarks giving a distinctive fore to aft flow.  Interior the Azimut S8 continues the collaboration with Francesco Guida who mixes white, and grey colors as his usual in a unique modern style.  Accommodation the Azimut S8 offers four double guest cabins all with private en-suite shower heads.  A crew area with two cabins and a shower head is located midships in between the engine room and the owners stateroom.  The Azimut S8 is powered by triple Volvo 1000hp engines, with IPS pod propulsion.  This is the sixth Azimut to go the triple Volvo IPS propulsion route after the 55S launched with this set up paved the way from 2012 onwards.
