Azimut 77S: a gutsy, state of the art craft with ultimate charm.
Elegance and guts are the distinctive features of the Azimut S Collection, the ultimate worldwide benchmark for sports yachts. The new Azimut 77S provides a perfect example of this philosophy, thanks to its aggressive styling ideally balanced by its classy design.
The Azimut 77S designed like the rest of the S Collection by Stefano Righini (while Carlo Galeazzi is responsible for the interiors), spots many of the distinctive features of the Azimut sport yacht range: the large single panel window space on the deckhouse, the six panel design of the gunwale windows, the transparent electric roof, the excellent performance and reduced consumption thanks to the three engine configuration coupled with Volvo Penta IPS transmission.
What sets the Azimut 77S apart from all others are two very exclusive features: the pivoting stern platform and the double open air area, one fore and one aft. The first, with its 8 sqm is perfect to launch every kind of water toy (a 3.85 m long jet tender, a jet ski, or alternatively 2 Seabob Cayago F7s), but it’s also a marvellous private beach where you can relax just a few inches away from the water while enjoying absolute privacy.
There are also two very spacious open air living areas on board the Azimut 77S. The traditional aft cockpit with a sunbathing area of 8 sqm, a dining table for as many as eight and a kitchen-bar area with a BBQ, fridge and icemaker. To enjoy all the shade you might require there’s also a very effective electrically powered soft-top. The fore cockpit is an eating and relaxation area that is utterly secluded even when docked and exciting during navigation. Here too there’s an eight person sofa, a coffee table and all the space needed to relax in the sun, or in the shade thanks to an electrohydraulic bimini cover.
All of the main deck is laid out on one level, from the cockpit right up to the staircase that leads into the night quarters. One is completely surrounded by natural light thanks to the two large windows and the vast crystal entrance door, which is just short of nine foot wide and made out of three segments that fold away into the starboard bulwark, so that the living room and cockpit can become a single environment. The brightness is further increased and made utterly unique by the broad prow facing windscreen and especially by the sliding glass roof.
The Design and décor created by Carlo Galeazzi exploit gloss Zebrano wood essences and leather details, all produced by the best Italian craftsmen.
‘Ocean Drive design decorative panels are effective: their uniqueness lies in its distinctive “embossed” structure, with three-dimensional effect.
On the lower deck the master suite is in the centre of the vessel and exploits to the full the maximum beam of the 77S. The luminous and breath-taking view over the water are guaranteed by the bulwark windows, characterised by six squared glass panels in traditional Azimut S style. The furnishings highlight the colour contrasts between the Zebrano wood essences, the pale ivory lacquering on the furniture and the sand coloured fabrics. The large exclusive bathroom on the right and the walk-in wardrobe complete the suite.
The fore VIP cabin with a traditional lay-out and a private bathroom offers two guest cabins, both with separate beds and ceilings over 6ft 6’’ high.
The positioning of the kitchen, also on the lower deck, but set well apart from the night quarters, is extremely ingenious. Its facilities include a four-plate glass ceramic hob, microwave, grill, dishwasher and a 281 litre capacity fridge, best in class as for dimensions and functionalities. All appliances are made by Miele. A fully equipped storage has been installed beneath the floor panels which can house all stores required for a medium to long range cruise.
The crew has an area with two separate cabins aft, with double access from outside on the port walkway, and from the salon in the main deck.
Besides the main piloting station in the saloon, the Azimut 77S has a second open air piloting station on the sport fly. Integrated within the external sporting line of the craft there’s a 10 sqm deck equipped with a cockpit with double seating and a sunbathing area that can be converted into a front facing sofa.
Ultimately, the new 77S is not just a study in excellence in terms of design and functionality, it is also a technological marvel, made possible thanks to the long standing experience and research that has gone into Azimut Yachts. The efficiency of the new high performance hull coupled with the three Volvo Penta IPS 1350 engines guarantees top performance matched with excellent fuel consumption ratings.
