Launched at the end of May in Fano, Italy, the first hull of the new 25.2m Azimut 80 motor yacht series will make her US debut at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale boat show.

Designed by Stefano Righini, her interior is by Achille Salvagni Architetti and accommodates eight guests in four staterooms, including a full-beam master suite, plus two crew members. Different shades of white and cream have been chosen for the interiors, creating a harmonious theme in which wooden details and decors are used, in colours ranging from the softer shades of oak to darker walnut.

Built in composite to CE class, the Azimut 80 is powered by twin 1,140kW MAN engines giving a top speed of 30 knots and a cruising speed of 26 knots.
