Elegance and guts are the distinctive features of the Azimut S Collection, the ultimate worldwide benchmark for sports yachts. The new Azimut 77S, making its official debut along the Cannes wharf during the Cannes Boat Show, provides a perfect example of this philosophy, thanks to its aggressive styling ideally balanced by its classy design. Thanks to its sophisticated technological solutions, even its fuel consumption provides a pleasant surprise.

The new Azimut 77S once again displays the vertical bow and the steel shield of the 55S, a true commercial success story with over 40 crafts sold since its launch two years ago. The 77S seems fated to match that success, with four boats ordered before the official launch.

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 8sqm, is perfect to launch every kind of water toy (a 3.85 m long jet tender, a jet ski, or alternatively 2 SeabobCayagoF7s), but it's also a marvelous 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 8sqm, 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 bi-mini 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 9ft 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 Galeazziexploit gloss Zebranowood 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 is guaranteed by the bulwark windows, characterisedby six squared glass panels in traditional Azimut S style.

The furnishings highlight the colour contrasts between the Zebranowood 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 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

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 10sqm 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 1200 engines (900 HP each) guarantees top performance matched with excellent fuel consumption ratings. The top speed is 36 knots and at a cruising speed, 32 knots, consumption is reduced to 420 lt/hr.

Our shipyard's technical office, following comparisons between the Azimut 77S figures and those of a vessel with a traditional hull with driveline transmission and 1800 HP engines, reported savings, in terms of fuel consumption at cruising speed, of around 30 percent.
