After selling 300 yachts in the list of 20 meters over the past 10 years Azimut 62 ‘and 64’ Azimut Group surprising even proposing another yacht in the same range.

A perfect craft already in that range offers improved solutions with other Azimut 66 can not be otherwise because Azimut is not just a simple company that manufactures yachts, but it is the reference of the market intended to build boats starting from already perfect craft observed by all the competition that draw inspiration from the models that a benchmark company as Azimut offer.

Azimut can not see the other must only look forward, to propose, innovate, setting trends never go wrong. Therefore if a company leader proposes a new model like Azimut 66 surely it is bound to have a great market acceptance and likewise those who spend for Azimut 66 1.750.000 Euros ideal for the family and for the cruise surely expect the best from Azimut group.

Azimut 66 is just wonderful, new, contemporary. Materials used and methods of construction are very advanced but the main feature of this boat is the use of carbon used intelligently in the highest parts of the boat as the hard top (roof) the forward part of the flying bridge (the bridge top boat), the radar arch, making everything lighter with a considerable increase in stability.

The entire hull, meets the highest requirements for safety on board is largely made of special fiberglass very weather resistant.

The outside of the hull designed as always to Azimut by Stefano Righini comes with a sleek silhouette to mitigate the height, large windows, the flying bridge and the hard top, for maximum comfort.

The flying bridge is divided into three major areas; from beside the cockpit space is a sofa that converts into a sunbathing area; in the middle of the bridge the dining area with a table for eight people, equipped with outdoor kitchen; the aft area can be customized through a sofa or a sundeck overlooking the sea.

Hard top closes and opens automatically through an electric hydraulic system. The sleek looking forward deck is very comfortable, equipped with sofa and sun as well as a large area of maneuver as it is in the Azimut style. Aft hydraulic platform can be installed on a dinghy up to 325 cm in length.

The interiors, designed by Carlo Galeazzi, are very bright. On the main deck opens the living room with sofas, large side windows and chic details: TV (with screens up to 55 “) retractable, a display backlight, bar area and a dining area type bar next to the station guide to follow navigation in comfort.

On the lower deck are placed 4 cabins: the owner’s full beam with its large bathroom dedicated more than marine urban style; a VIP cabin with double bed and two twin-bedded cabins with portholes increased. The three bathrooms all have separate shower area. Double crew cabin is accessible from the platform.

The boat propulsion is provided by two CAT 1.150 hp each that can reach a maximum speed of 34 knots, while setting a cruising speed of 29 knots, will consume about 350 liters / hour all with a unique stability and in navigation is in turns despite the maximum boat from the water height of nearly 6 meters.

Stability is ensured by the special shape of the hull and double very innovative guide electronic wheelhouse, the bridge and on the flying bridge, where the excellent driving position allows maximum visibility. Also the two guide posts and remotely via tablet, you can get under control, almost all the plants present, through the integrated on-board monitoring. By engines alarms and bilge pumps, from the levels and unloading of the crates to the ventilation of the engine room, up to the audio system and air conditioning and the Government of the lights management with the ability to create up to three different scenarios d ‘lighting. All this shows how home automation or in general the technology is well developed on this vessel.
