Style and substance

What might persuade you is simply Azimut’s highly distinctive style inside.

Azimut 72

Chic saloon is bursting with natural light

The Italian company has married its archetypal characterful limed oak with ultra high gloss ebony, and then peppered the boat with highly polished stainless steel detailing in the form of useful handholds, seamanlike fiddles, protective cappings and table legs and furniture supports – they run through the 72 as a shimmering stylistic link. And they look fabulous.

The standard of finish throughout was also outstanding, probably the best we’ve seen so far on an Azimut.

The master cabin has a flat floor and plenty of space around the berth

Practical detailing is impressive too; cedar lined wardrobes, heavy doors closing onto rubber gaskets to reduce noise transmission, and the almost complete absence of sharp edges or protruding corners to fall against when the going gets rough.

Verdict

The Azimut 72 does seem to have it all: a glamorous interior with impressive practical detailing, generous headroom, reasonable 32.6 knot performance, a fine engineering installation, and four cabins which are all conveniently en-suite
