A 21 meter Azimut motor yacht went ablaze and severely injured one person on 1925 hours of Friday second September in 1520 Island Blvd, Aventura, Florida.  Miami-Dade fire rescue responded to the fire with twenty persons from both land and water.  One man which is reported the only person onboard the yacht was air-lifted to Ryder Trauma Center with severe burns.  The fire was extinguished at about 2200 hours of the night, with it not spreading into other yachts and the marina. 
The yacht in this fire is an Azimut 70 a model produced from 2008 till 2015 to a design of Stefano Righini.  Released in the fall of 2008 as a replacement to the successful 68 Plus and Evolution, the 70 was also an evolution of the 68 with a larger fourth cabin, and the choice to separate or open the galley on the main deck.  The Azimut 70 is powered by twin 1360hp Man engines which give her speeds up to 32 knots.  She was replaced by the Righini designed 72 in the fall of 2015.
