The 35th Palm Beach International Boat Show, running from March 25 to 28, will be Azimut Yachts’ first official trade fair in 2021 after the private Pompano Beach event organised by the shipyard last February in partnership with MarineMax. Working again with MarineMax, the world’s largest boat retailer, the Italian shipyard will for the first time be exhibiting the Atlantis 45 equipped with the groundbreaking assisted docking system developed by Volvo Penta. On show with it will be a selection of the brand’s most iconic yachts, including the Magellano 25 Metri and the Magellano 66 from the same Collection, the Sportfly version of the S6 and, finally, two models from the Flybridge Collection, the 55 and the 72.
Azimut Yachts officially opens the 2021 yachting season by taking part with MarineMax in the 35th Palm Beach International Boat Show from March 25 to 28. The brand’s presence at the boat show confirms the great strategic importance of the overseas market, as is also demonstrated by the incredible attendance figures reported at the private boat show organised by the two companies last month in Pompano Beach.
Making its international debut at Palm Beach is the Azimut Atlantis 45, equipped with Volvo Penta’s new assisted docking system. The sporty coupe has exterior styling and interior decor by Neo Design. Atlantis 45 is one of the first yachts to be installed with the new system developed by Volvo Penta. This is no coincidence because Azimut Yachts has always been keen to introduce new technology that improves comfort and safety on board. The assisted docking system gives the captain optimal control over the boat when manoeuvring, making anchoring operations easier and more intuitive by automatically compensating for variables like the wind and currents, and so ensuring excellent directional stability. During the event, test sessions will be available for interested owners every day from 5 pm to 7 pm, apart from closing day on March 28, when they will be brought forward to from 3 pm to 6 pm.
Alongside the 45-footer will be the Magellano 25 Metri, symbolising Azimut Yacht’s ability to propose new design concepts and innovative technology. A sophisticated yacht with a welcoming atmosphere, Magellano 25 Metri is designed for owners in search of maximum comfort at sea. After its international debut in Portofino and official presentation at the 2020 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, this model continues to attract a high level of attention from the American public.
At the event, Azimut is also showing the Magellano 66, with exterior styling and a concept by Cor D. Rover, as well as the S6 in the brand’s sport Collection par excellence, with exterior styling and a concept by Stefano Righini and interior design by Francesco Guida, exhibited here in its Sportfly version, and finally two models from the Flybridge Collection, the 55 and the 72. The first was created by top designers Righini and Salvagni, while the second has interiors by Galeazzi and exterior styling by Righini.
The Palm Beach International Boat Show therefore presents Azimut Yachts with a new opportunity to show how its customer-centric approach and focus on the product are two key factors in the company’s growth strategy in an extremely competitive and important market like the Americas, and particularly in the USA, which acts as a driver for the entire industry.
