When it comes to elegant design, whether you’re talking fashion, cars or Sophia Loren, Italians are hard to beat. The same holds true for yachts, like this Azimut 62S. In 2007, the British boating press voted the 62S “Boat of the Year” in the over-45’ sport cruiser category. A couple of weeks later, it won European Boat of the Year at the Dusseldorf Boat Show.
Naval architect Stefano Righini created the 62S and drew the lines and exterior styling. The hull is a deep-V with 19 degrees deadrise. A pair of 1015-hp Caterpillar C18 diesels pushes it to 39 mph max, 33 mph cruise, according to the builder. Six hull windows on either side provide light to the master stateroom amidships.
Alas, here’s another empty sunpad and a nice wide swim platform for water sports, too. The teak decking is a classy touch and provides secure but comfortable footing. Note the stern thruster on the centerline that provides extra maneuverability when wiggling the boat’s fanny between other boats to get into the dock.
Two cabin layouts are available. It replaces a second guest/crew cabin with a “media room”; not a place for press conferences, as it is thought as at first — it’s really a lounge. If you need single berths, the island berth in the forward guest cabin splits apart to form V-berths. There’s a small crew cabin aft, next to the garage.
