In the Azimut 72, it’s great to find such an overtly glamorous flybridge cruiser with such terrific practical detailing
Style and substance
What might persuade you is simply Azimut’s highly distinctive style inside.
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.
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.
