Azimut Yacht Saved from Sinking Near Livorno

In the early afternoon of Thursday thirteen July a sixteen meter Azimut motor yacht called a may-day for assistance as it was taking water in its engine room and in risk of sinking.  The Azimut motor yacht left Livorno harbour going direction Cecina, with two persons onboard, when the helmsman noticed that the Azimut yacht slowed down and started to ride bow high.  The Azimut yacht was assisted by two Guardia Costiera vessels, the CP 867 which came from Livorno and the GC B60 fast rib from Cecina, who after calming down the two crew, assisted the yacht to Cecina where a travel lift was ready to take the Azimut up for inspection and eventual repairs.
The Azimut in this near sinking is a 50 Fly model which was presented in the Summer of 2014, and as today is still in production. Coming from a Stefano Righini design the 50 Fly has a three double cabin layout, with an owners stateroom at midships and powered by twin 650hp Cat engines reaches speeds up to 31 knots.  Nine years in production the Azimut 50 Fly has received one modification over the years, with a galley up option available since 2017.
