The Azimut Verve 40 is the first outboard model by the Italian boatbuilder. Details of this new 12m boat were presented to the market at a press conference held during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2016.
Italian boatbuilder Azimut is entering the outboard market with Verve 40. The new model is powered by triple Mercury Verado 350hp installed on a custom-made Armstrong bracket.
The builder says that manoeuvring joystick and skyhook features are available options.
The Azimut Verve 40 represents the entrance of Azimut Yachts into a segment of the American market dominated by established players since more than 25 years.
The boatbuilder described this 12m outboard powerboat as “a clever boat exactly half way between two categories: the American traditional walkaround and a day cruiser”.
The planning hull, governed by electric power assisted steering, is designed by Azimut Yachts Engineering Team, along with the AB Group’s R & D from Varazze.
The hull was developed employing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) studies and tank testing. The structures are realized through finite element method (FEM).
