The 2005 Genoa Boat Show debut of the Azimut 85 caused quite a stir due to her timeless, classic design and sturdy platform. She was crafted by the Italian shipyard Azimut Yachts and is the ideal vessel for both experienced and novice yacht owners who wish to cruise the Mediterranean or the Caribbean in the utmost luxury and serenity.
She is 26.8 meters long, with a 1.95-meter draft and a 6.10-meter beam, and has a GRP hull and superstructure. She offers future owners the ideal combination of style, comfort, and luxury, with an exterior designed by Stefano Righini and an interior designed by Carlo Galeazzi. The galley, a semi-custom Azimut design, is one of the primary focal points on the main deck. With sliding doors leading to both the main saloon and side deck, this is a highly functional area for the crew that does not take up any space on the main deck. The expansive saloon and dining area are surrounded by large windows that flood the living space with light and provide breathtaking views. Sliding doors led to the main deck aft, where an al fresco dining table and steps to the beach club were located. The bow has built-in sunpads that are ideal for sunbathing.
Her flybridge, however, demonstrates that she was intended for outdoor living. This versatile area features a retractable hardtop sunroof, space for a Jacuzzi, barbecue, comfortable sofas, and a dining table, making it ideal for entertaining, socializing, and unwinding.
This includes the master suite located amidships with a spacious walk-in closet, ensuite with rain shower and bathtub, and exquisitely chosen furnishings. The VIP stateroom is located at the bow of the motor yacht and provides a spacious environment with a double bed and neutral furnishings similar to the master suite. The two staterooms with two single beds are located between the master and VIP suites.
The Azimut 85 is equipped with twin V12 1800HP MTU engines with a top speed of 26 knots and a cruising speed of 23 knots, giving this superyacht a sense of speed while still providing her future owners with calm cruising conditions.
