The Azimut 85, an enduring motor boat design.
The Azimut 85, with her traditional lines and sturdy foundation, caused quite a stir when she was first shown at the Genoa Boat Show in 2005. Built by the Italian shipyard Azimut Yachts, she is perfect for seasoned sailors and first-time boat owners alike who wish to cruise the Mediterranean or the Caribbean in style and comfort.
She is 26.8 meters in length, with a draft of 1.95 meters, and a beam of 6.10 meters, and is built of a fiberglass reinforced plastic hull and superstructure. Her sleek exterior was designed by Stefano Righini, and her modern, airy interior was created by Carlo Galeazzi to provide her future owners with the utmost in luxury and pleasure. The Azimut galley, a semi-custom design, is a highlight of the main deck. This area is great for the crew and doesn’t encroach on the main deck thanks to sliding doors that open to the main saloon and the side deck. Huge windows line the walls of the spacious saloon and dining room, letting in an abundance of natural light and framing gorgeous vistas. The beach club and al fresco dining area are located on the upper deck, which may be accessed via sliding glass doors located at the vessel’s stern. The bow has some built-in sunpads, so you can relax and soak up the rays.
Her flybridge, however, shows that her interior was planned for her use in the great outdoors. This multipurpose room features a retractable hardtop sunroof and can accommodate a Jacuzzi, barbecue, and plush seating and a table for a variety of social and dining gatherings.
The yacht’s four luxurious cabins can sleep a total of eight people, and the midships master suite features a walk-in closet, an en suite bathroom with a rain shower and a bathtub, and exquisitely curated furnishings. Forward on the motor yacht is the VIP cabin, a large, luxurious space with a double bed and the same neutral furnishings as the master suite. Two single-bed guestrooms can be found between the master and VIP suites.
The Azimut 85 has twin V12 1800HP MTU engines, allowing her to reach a top speed of 26 knots and a comfortable cruising speed of 23 knots for her future owners.
