Boat shows are more than an occasion to premiere models. They’re also when builders and designers unveil plans for upcoming projects. Azimut used last week’s Miami Yacht Show for both, including the announcement of the Azimut 76 Fly. She’s the largest of five new yachts in build for the brand.
“Fly” signifies the Fly Collection, which is a new series, too. Of course, it means all of the yachts will feature flying bridges. But, the Azimut 76 Fly will still be different. For instance, she features styling by Alberto Mancini. The famed designer, who works frequently with Overmarine Group, among others, has never previously worked with Azimut. Mancini is giving the Azimut 76 Fly shapely lines, in keeping with what he typically does. He’s also creating an overall look that complements the Azimut lineage.
Another surprise waits inside. The Azimut 76 Fly pledges to utilize space the way that far larger yachts do. As a result, the spaces should look and feel more voluminous. Unfortunately, images are not yet available. However, the new yacht further offers a few interior versions, all designed by Achille Salvagni Architetti. You might remember that the design studio already collaborates with Azimut on other series, such as the Azimut Grande 32 Metri. For the first Azimut 76 Fly, Achille Salvagni Architetti is creating the Lounge interior design. Lounge emphasizes flexible relaxation and dining areas, wherein each can serve the alternate purpose. For example, the dining table can convert quickly to a coffee table.
The build and design teams didn’t forget the importance of crew, should you wish to have them aboard. The crew’s quarters, in the bow, have direct access to the galley and on up to the wheelhouse.
For reliable performance, as well as better space utilization, the Azimut 76 Fly features Volvo Penta IPS propulsion. The shipyard is not yet disclosing anticipated speeds, but the system is proven to improve maneuverability and fuel burn.
