Project: Azimut Fly 72

While some other brands keep delaying a new model, Azimut anticipates the market with the new Fly 72, a project announced just ten days before debuting at the 2023 Cannes boat show, which will debut along the two other Magellano 60 and Verve 48 Azimut novelties at the Cote d'Azur passarelle. The new Azimut Fly 72 replaces the fall 2015 launched 72 Flybridge after seven years of production, and continues the evolution of the Alberto Mancini era, which started with the 78 Flybridge in 2019. Three more Azimut to go for Alberto Mancini and transforming all the Flybridge range to his vision. The Azimut Fly 72 will also feature interior by Fabio Fantolino, a new name for the Italian builder, but also a first for the Torino and Milan based architect in the boating World. According to Azimut press release Fantolino will bring a transversal design language in the Fly 72, with the interior rendering showing clean modern furnishings. In the press release Azimut has not shared details of the Fly 72 accommodation, of which I would expect a standard four cabins layout and a crew cabin for two. Azimut is also quiet on the technical details, the outgoing 72 Flybridge is Man powered with shafts, but the 68 and 78 are Volvo IPS powered. So it will be interesting if Azimut will continue it's move into pods with this new Fly 72 model.
