Italy’s Azimut Yachts has announced that its new Azimut 50 will be launched next month. This new 15-metre model joins the builder’s Flybridge collection, and will make its world debut at the 2014 September and October boat shows.

Designed by Stefano Righini, the exteriors pick up on concepts found in the Azimut 80, whilst the interiors are designed by Carlo Galeazzi.

The yacht is powered by two Volvo Penta D11, 670 HP straight shaft to provide a maximum speed of 30 knots and cruising speed of 26-27 knots.

The new 50-foot Flybridge will be on the water in June 2014, ready for its debut at autumn boat shows around Europe and the USA.
