Project: Azimut S7

Azimut present the project for a new S7, which has now received the Alberto Mancini exterior looks treatment looking more a sibling albeit smaller to the larger S8 and S10 models.  Launched in 2017 the original S7 was designed by 1992-2018 Azimut lead designer Stefano Righini to huge success.  The mark II or Mancini version builds on the same Ausonio designed hull form, with some little changes to the layout plan.  The changes is in some details; the fore deck lounge area for example has minor design tweaks which is now more rounded and open, while the master stateroom queen berth is looking to port side bulkhead instead of an angle as it was before, and now features a large sofa to starboard opposite.  Other detail changes are the garage which is now that bit larger with the same length, not shorter to the jet-bike side.  These changes have added an extra weight of about 2500 kilograms in loaded mode, now weighing 46 ton versus the 43.5 of the Righini version but performance has not changed according to Azimut with the three Volvo 800hp and IPS pod drives still giving a declared 35 knots of top speed.
