The Azimut 55 is a masterful blend of style and substance — one that combines centuries of Italian classic design tradition with the sophistication and power of 21st century technology.
The 55 is the latest example of the proud tradition of Italian boat building carried on at the Azimut-Benetti shipyards.
The art of the Azimut 55 lies in its appearance. Every line of the superstructure is a sleek curve. There are no hard edges in the look Stefano Righini created for the 55.
Likewise, the interior is a study in flow. Interior designer Carlo Galeazzi gracefully moves the eye from one space to the next.
The flybridge offers a large sunpad on the starboard side, opposite the helm. For dining, part of it converts to a seat back, creating room for up to eight adults. An entertainment center holds a barbecue grill, an ice-maker and a sink.
The flybridge deck continues aft, with space for a davit and a tender. As an option, you can put a sunpad here instead — and you'll find an additional sunpad on the foredeck.
Although there are canvas options for covering the upper deck, the cockpit is protected from the sun full time by a flybridge overhang. There's space for a table and chairs, to enjoy a meal or other activities.
The Azimut 55's integrated swim platform continues the teak decking from the cockpit and sidedecks. It measures just over 4 feet in length fore to aft, providing generous space for water toys.
The 55's saloon is surrounded by large expanses of glass.
The entry from the cockpit is a floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door. It extends the "open plan" vista throughout nearly two-thirds the length of the boat — from the cockpit to the windshield.
Many of the large vertical wood panels are crafted in a checkerboard pattern. Each of the 10-inch square blocks has grain running at 90-degree angles from the next, and they are done in a high-gloss finish.
The saloon seating and cabinetry are both designed in keeping with the "curves" motif of the boat.
There's a U-shaped settee to port when you enter from the cockpit. The settee faces an entertainment center along the starboard side, just under the windows, crafted in an elegant mix of cherry and briar woods. A bottle compartment inside it has a clear plexiglass door and mirrored interior.
The flow of the space gently takes you up two steps to the next level of the saloon. Here, the galley is to port, the dining area is to starboard and the lower helm station is forward.
The galley is open to the saloon, except for a small cabinet on the aft side. The front of the upright refrigerator/freezer is faced with the checkerboard-patterned wood, adding another touch of elegance.
A Granulon countertop along the port side holds a double sink, while another expanse covers an island storage cabinet. It has access from both the galley and dining area, and contains dividers for securing china and crystal.
A three-element ceramic cooktop and microwave oven are also standard galley features. There's additional storage forward of the galley, along the bulkheads of the companionway to the lower deck.
The dining table is removable — and it can be configured in two different ways, depending on your needs.
