The new Azimut S7 revolutionises the sports motoryacht concept by embracing the superior technology of carbon fibre, the boatbuilder says.

Italy’s Azimut is set to showcase its new S7 motoryacht at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival. The 21m yacht is available in coupé and sportfly versions and her propulsion system is based on three Volvo IPS units.

With 21m, this new Azimut seats between Azimut 55S and the 77S and extends the shipyard’s sports collection.

Carbon fibre technology

The use of carbon fibre in the superstructure and the pivoting platform has made it possible to increase the volume of the boat without affecting its overall weight, optimising performance.

The triple IPS technology, as well as improving performance and consumption, also provides an additional benefit in the form of even more below deck space.

The result is a livable below deck area that is 13 metres in length, plus a garage with space for both a 3.25m tender and a PWC. This solution leaves the stern clear when the garage is closed, while the pivoting platform creates a gorgeous terrace on the sea.
