Azimut Yachts Kick Starts The Year With Three Major International Awards

February 10, 2018 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Azimut Yachts rung in the new year with three new accolades for its flagship yachts – two for the Azimut Grande 35 Metri, and one for the Azimut S7.

The exclusive instant balcony providing panoramic views for the owner’s cabin, spacious side garage unique to its product category and powerful wave-piercing hull of the Azimut Grande 35 Metri impressed the panel of testers from the Motorboat&Yachting magazine and was awarded the prestigious Custom Yacht Award.

The same superyacht was also adjudged the Best International Motorboat Over 30 Meters by the Christofle Yacht Style panel at the Phuket Rendezvous, Thailand’s premier luxury lifestyle and marine showcase.

Giovanna Vitelli, Azimut|Benetti Group Vice President commented, “I am proud of the success of this extraordinary model, which has already received two awards for its unique design. These are now joined by a third prestigious trophy that also rewards the innovative technical characteristics developed with great determination by our R&D team.”

Rounding off an exciting month of achievement is the Azimut S7 – named the overall winner of the prestigious “European Power Boat of the Year 2018” (EPY) award in the “over 45 feet” category.

One of the undisputed assets of the model, which was unveiled last September at the Cannes Boat Show, is its highly innovative layout. The exteriors, designed by Stefano Righini, embellish the characteristic lines of the brand’s collection with diamond-shaped deckhouse windows, in a solution that gives the boat character and promises to amaze with its plays of reflected light. The S7 is the only yacht in its segment with four spacious cabins, a beach platform expander and a garage for both tender and jet ski. Available in both coupé and sportfly versions, it surprises with its sumptuous materials and the unusual interior design by Francesco Guida.

The EPY 2018 award, renown in the yachting world, represents a huge success for the Italian brand and an acknowledgement by top critics of both the company’s design skills and the quality of its models.

The boats to receive EPY awards, assigned each year by a panel of top international experts from Europe’s leading industry publications, are the most significant and not only in terms of innovation: to receive this prestigious recognition, the yachts are submitted to rigorous testing and assessments based on their design, onboard safety, performance, handling, quality/price ratio and many other factors.

Azimut S7 has been designed and built to the highest standards in the sector and is covered by the HTS High Technical Standard declaration issued by the shipyard. The yacht is also eligible for CE A and NMMA certification for boats under 24 meters.

Azimut Yachts will be exhibiting at both the Thailand Yacht Show and Singapore Yacht Show happening from 22 – 25 February 2018 and 12 – 15 April 2018 respectively.
