The Azimut Benetti Group introduces 20 models at the Cannes Boat Show, three of them making their world premiere.
There will be 20 Azimut Benetti Group yachts at this year’s edition of the Cannes Boat Show, 10-15 September 2013, including three completely new ones by Azimut Yachts: Azimut 80, Azimut Magellano 53, and Azimut Atlantis 50. Azimut 80 is the new, highly anticipated 24-metre boat in the Flybridge Collection; it is designed to embody a lifestyle where comfort and well-being merge with sophisticated and understated elegance. With the proven success of their prior collaborations in larger models, Stefano Righini (exteriors) and Achille Salvagni Architetti (interiors) team up once again. The result is a design which revolves around four different stylistic proposals, each one distinct in terms of its colours and furnishing: Portofino, Dolce Vita, Firenze, and Riviera.
The long range collection with the incomparable Italian charm is further enriched by a new model. The Magellano 53 is the first model in the collection to offer three comfortable cabins, a utility room, and a crew cabin with separate bathroom, a perfect set up for long cruises. The vessel has pleasant surprises in store for even the most demanding boat owners in terms of style, comfort, flexibility, and outstanding range. And finally, the Azimut Atlantis 50 makes a two-fold debut; the Atlantis brand (already well known among open cruiser enthusiasts) becomes a full member of the Azimut Yachts collections with the unveiling of this model. The Atlantis models join the Magellano, Flybridge, S, and Grande Collections, successfully completing the merging of Atlantis with Azimut Yachts, meaning Azimut Yachts now offers the most extensive range of 34’ to 120’ vessels both in terms of number of models and typologies.
Constant research into avant-garde and innovative solutions drives the development of Benetti designs. At the Cannes Boat Show, the Tuscan boatyard will introduce a third line of fast yachts, increasing its power exponentially. Fast Displacement – the name of the new line of fast displacement composite yachts – was created to tap into a strong and as yet unexplored market in custom super yachts with a sporty spirit. These are vessels characterised by their versatility, speed (when called for), but which are also extremely comfortable in displacement mode and highly efficient at any speed. Dynamism perfectly unites with the sheer pleasure of life on board, and the construction quality and maximum customisation make each yacht an exclusive design of the highest calibre.
F-125’ is the second in the Fast Displacement line next to the F-140′. The range’s philosophy and features will be unveiled in a press conference at the Cannes Boat Show 2013 at 8:30 am, 11 September.
Packed with technology, the F-125′ is a composite construction yacht built at the Viareggio boatyard; it is a 38-metre semi-wide body with three decks plus a sun deck. The sporty exterior employs generous amounts of horizontal windows to accentuate the sleek lines; its hallmark is a large central design element at the sides enclosing the upper deck stair.
The two Fast Displacement series models were designed by Benetti with Stefano Righini and in collaboration with the Azimut Benetti Group Research and Development centre, which designed the hull geometry exclusively for the new line.
