The hottest new model debut ingat Boot Düsseldorf this week is Azimut Yachts S7, a 71-foot (21.6-meter) sports coupe designed for fast navigation. The sporty new model joins the S6, S8, and Grande S10 as part of Azimut’s S series collection. S7 guarantees a reduction in fuel consumption as part of Azimut’s low-emission yacht category. At medium and high speeds, emissions can be as much as -30% while guaranteeing unparalleled performance.
Solutions to reduce fuel consumption and cut emissions first include extensive carbon fiber to reduce the yacht’s overall weight, increase volume, and use a more compact and highly efficient propulsion system powered by three Volvo IPS engines. Thirdly, the optimized hull lines designed by P.L. Ausonio Naval Architecture ensure the boat is as hydrodynamic as possible.
Design-wise, Italian houses were the natural choice for the interior and exterior. The eye-catching sleek, dynamic profile, penned by Alberto Mancini looks so cutting-edge and modern that it makes other yachts at Dusseldorf look somewhat passe. Yachtique, an Italian creative boutique, styled the interiors in its signature simple chic style, luxury fabrics, and neutral color palette.

On the main deck, indoor and outdoor zones are flush and connected by sliding doors to allow guests to wander from the cockpit to the salon freely. The galley is situated in the bow section.
Descending onto the lower deck are four staterooms and a two-berth crew cabin. Abaft is the master stateroom with a separate dressing room and ensuite bathroom. Unlike poky circular cabin windows often seen in traditional boats, amidships are large glass windows that fill the living area with natural daylight. There is also a generous, tender garage with room for two water toys: a custom version of the Pirelli J33 tender made for Azimut and a jet ski.

On the foredeck, there is a terrace to seat eight. The sea deck is a new concept Azimut designed to bring an opening stern beach area to smaller boats.
The sport fly level features a large terrace providing extra space for sunbathing relaxation, with large sunbeds, an alfresco dining area, and a wet bar.
