Azimut 72: TECHNOLOGY SERVING STYLE
The 72 model combines two state-of-the-art construction techniques. The hull and the deck are entirely made out of moulded fibreglass while the deckhouse and flybridge are made out of pure carbon fibre. This new production choice leads to a considerable reduction in weight, close to 30%, which can be exploited to obtain more extensive deck surfaces and greater internal volume, while maintaining the same displacement as its competitors in the same category.
From a general point of view, the designer Stefano Righini, sums up the design effort made on the concept for this new model: "The new 72 has been designed by researching and fulfilling certain specific objectives: achieving the greatest possible internal volumes in keeping with the ergonomic standards, emphasizing the role of light both in the main salon and below deck without sacrificing the enjoyment of the exterior spaces. The strength of the 72 lies mainly in its capacity to marry a balanced form with the kind of style research that guarantee the best relationship between the design of the exteriors and the enjoyment of the internal spaces. A strength that draws added energy from the product's spiritual levity alongside that of the materials used, ensured by the use of materials such as carbon fibre and the quest for the ultimate in hydrodynamic performance".
Like every other Azimut branded Yacht, the 72 also has the clear intent of representing the model of reference for its own segment in terms of volumes, rational use of space, elegance and performance. Two main elements have driven the project's development: an eye for its proportions and the innovative level of the construction techniques used in order to achieve a very sporting exterior line without limiting the interior volume.
With a length of 22.60 metres and a berth of 5.60 metres, the layout includes 4 cabins, all with en suite bathrooms, one of which is the yacht's master cabin also with en-suite bathroom and the typical full glass vertical window openings, allowing a total of 8 guests.
The flybridge is vast, over 37 square metres, designed for maximum versatility in terms of usage. The main deck ranges out over a single level from the cockpit to the stairs leading to the lower deck, without any steps or changing levels, with an extensive relaxation area, an open space kitchen and a double seat wheelhouse. The style of the interiors, completely renovated to give this new version a very strong character, come either in bleached oak and glossy Ebony essence, or in natural heat-treated oak essence and precious glossy Sycamore. Careful planning of the lighting design has enabled all fixtures to be completely encased in the ceilings and furnishings.
The performance of the 72 model, with two MAN V12 engines each producing 1400 HP, perfectly matches the craft's sporting character. The cruising speed stands at 26 knots, while the top speed, according to the boatyard's project data, reaches 31 knots.
