AZIMUT 103S

Azimut 103S

Azimut Yachts, officially introduced their new 103S model to the market at The Dubai Boat Show, underscoring, the expansion of their "Open" series which had kicked off with the launch of a 68S type back in 2003. The new "flag" ship, also made in association with the architect Stefano Righini, maintains the family feeling in tune with the S series style. True to Azimut's fashion it also sports those large window panels along its sides to enhance its touch of originality in its layout as well as its integration into the S series. The yacht has been designed to HSC Code specifics, the international class for speed boats, and offers top performance through its two MTU 2.434 HP engines combined to its Kamewa Rolls Royce hydro-jets. The inside and outer space of the superstructure is very large indeed and certainly worthy of note. The owner's stateroom amidships, below deck, is larger in volume than the average and it sports, at its centre, a king sized bed, a small saloon to port and a desk on the opposite side both with a sea view, thanks to the typical square window panels fitted alongside. The bright interior layout enhanced by the large window panelling, which is the yacht's real "liet motif," may also be enjoyed by the guests who have access to two guest cabins with separate berths and a VIP. suite further forwards towards the bows. The crew quarters, accessed by a separate entrance are formed by two cabins, two bathrooms, their own galley and small saloon. The main tailor made galley by Boffi is to be found in between the lower and main deck. The areas in common within the superstructure which include the wheelhouse, a wet bar and the main saloon are truly bright thanks to the glass panelling that covers 80% of the deckhouse's sides, and by the incoming light from above through three crystal glass panes, that cover as many as 14 square metres of the hard top itself. The indoor temperature of this vast area is controlled also by the use of reflecting glass on the exterior of the lateral panels whereas in the hard top's case the crystal employed is made up of thermal layers. The surface one can actually walk on the outside measures as many as 120 sq.m. distributed among the cockpit, bows and the newly introduced upper deck. The main deck offers outdoor players as many as two saloons, one in the cockpit, the other at the bows with ample sunbathing space. The aforesaid upper deck, which is a novelty for Azimut's S series has a second complete helm set of controls, a "C" shaped sofa in a small saloon and two comfortable reclining deck chairs at the stern.
