Project: Azimut 53 Fly

Azimut announced the 53, a sixteen meter motor yacht which will be the second smallest offer in its popular top selling Flybridge Collection.  The 53 Fly was presented during Azimut's annual press conference at what is usually the start of the fall boat show season.  The Azimut 53 Flybridge sees Alberto Mancini enter into the smaller sizes of Azimut range, after designing the 78 Flybridge, S8, and Grande S10.  For the Azimut 53 the Italian designer will follow somewhat similar lines to that of the 78 model, in a racy sporty profile which the builder says hide the real volumes of this sixteen meter flybridge motor yacht.  Azimut has in the past presented racy looking flybridge motor yachts from the popular 98/100 Leonardo, to the 62/64 models. The details of the 53 are still mostly under wraps, but thanks to the series of videos which launched with part one on November 27 we do know that it will have an astern galley layout.  Power and propulsion details are still unknown, though considering that the 78 is with IPS pod drives I would not be surprised to see the switch in this model and then a revamp in all the flybridge series up to the 78.
