Azimut Super Yacht Suffers Engine Failure Outside of Genova

The Italian coast guard informed of this incident which happed on the late afternoon of March 11. An Azimut super yacht of 31 meters in length with British Virgin Islands flag called for a MayDay assistance to the Italian Livorno Coast Guard reporting that it was without engine power, drifting some 56 nautical miles away from the Genova Harbour in rough seas condition.  The Italian coast guard first deployed a helicopter from the Sarzana base in La Spezia, and after confirming that all the crew was in good health started to organize towage operation.  The towing of the Azimut super yacht was completed on the evening of twelfth March with the yacht arrival in La Spezia.
The Azimut in this engine failure is a 105 model produced from 2005 till 2013 in 29 units, to an exterior design of Stefano Righini who has collaborated with the well known Italian name from the early nineties till his retirement in 2018.  The Azimut 105 is  a semi raised pilot house two deck and a half super yacht and offered accommodation in two layouts; ten guests in five cabins with an owners stateroom on the main deck, or the option with a larger living on the main deck and eight guest berths on the lower deck.  Crew accommodation is for five crew in three cabins, two forward one aft.  The Azimut 105 was replaced the Grande 100 in 2012.
