Rodriguez sells 50m Italyachts sports yacht
by Tom Isitt
The Rodriguez Group has announced the sale of its new 50-metre megayacht, the 165ft Azul. This all-aluminium sport yacht is the fruit of a collaboration between the Rodriguez Group and Italyachts Shipyard.
Begun in the summer of 2010, the project was conceived and developed by the Rodriguez Group sales team, in collaboration with the Italian naval architect Andrea Bacigalupo, to whom the boat owes its streamlined shape and the perfect living space - she has five cabins, including an owner’s suite with access to the main deck, an upper deck opening onto a large terrace equipped with a bar, solarium and Jacuzzi.
Powered by two MTU 2600Hp engines on Rolls Royce waterjets, this 50m motor yacht can cruise at 18 knots and reach a maximum of 28 knots. She will be delivered in 2014.
