Azimut 85 successfully unites opposites to coexist in perfect harmony. The graciously streamlined exterior hides a skilfully designed interior that enhances the space available to the full, completing it with every possible comfort. A design culture applied to large volumes and a finely honed aesthetic sense form the underlying structure of the yacht, representing two complementary facets of one whole.
The Azimut 85 was launched at last year’s Genoa Boat Show, and although it’s tough to at- tract much attention at that most competitive and dazzling of shows, there was a definite buzz about the 85.
The Azimut 85 is the ultimate villa on the sea. Stately, luxurious and panoramic, it is truly a floating home away from home. Never before has any yacht in this class managed to achieve the perfect blend of contemporary design, breathtaking beauty, and a range of amenities. Like the entire Azimut line, her ample windows on both decks provide plenty of light and incredible views which surround her. The Azimut 85 will delight & entertain even the most discerning patron.
Two alternative layouts are offered below, both featuring a pair of twin-berth guest cabins, a VIP suite in the bow, and the master stateroom amidships. Two crew cabins occupy the stern. The English owner of this first 85 had opted, quite sensibly in my view, for the "owner" layout, which borrows space from the forward guest accommodation on the starboard side to create a large dressing area "a sort of antechamber" leading towards the head. There is also a shower room on the port side.
Added to the already generous proportions of this full-beam suite, this option really gives the owner something in return for signing all the checks. It’s quite a long walk from one corner of this suite to the other you wouldn’t want to forget your socks.
"The 85 is an imposing vessel, which promises particularly voluminous accomodations. Then there was that flying bridge, which looked huge under that enormous hardtop. And everyone knew that this new Azimut was the first yacht in Italy to be fitted with the 1,825-hp Caterpillar C32As, so her potential performance was also a talking point. But it was the interior that was the cause of most of the gossip, and especially his intriguing maindeck layout"
