Azimut Yachts: bold and dynamic at the Palma Boat Show 2015


Azimut Yachts is one of the stars at the 32nd edition of the Palma Boat Show (30 April to 4 May 2015) against the backdrop of the Palma de Mallorca port. With a completely revamped format, the new edition of the Palma Boat Show is set to be bigger than ever, featuring 3,700 brands and drawing visitors from all over the world.
The Italian shipyard was represented by one of its sportier models, Azimut 55S, moored at the pier and on view for everyone. Surprisingly fast thanks to engine room innovations, this 17-metre vessel stands out for its superior performance, reduced fuel consumption, and excellent handling. It also has an interesting layout, starting with the stern where the garage door transforms into a nearly 2-metre swimming platform; a space optimising solution that also makes launching the tender easier and faster. There are also large relaxation areas at the bow (the only one in its class) and stern; here, thanks to the sliding hard top and an entry door that completely opens up, the dining area transforms into a huge sun and relaxation area.
The Azimut staff was available both onboard and at the stand to illustrate the shipyard’s latest advances and services. Since the start of the year, the luxury sectors – and specifically the Spanish shipbuilding industry – have shown the first signs of recovery. This is excellent news for Azimut Yachts, which has more than 12 sales and service offices in the area, including in Palma di Mallorca itself, one of the busiest ports in the Mediterranean.
