About Azimut 68S
The challenge Azimut set itself when designing the new open boat of the S range was to create dual purpose areas in which to enjoy the wind, the sun and the open sea, but with the same privacy and comfort offered by flybridge yachts. The Azimut 68S has got it just right. The new Open lifestyle: are you open to innovation?

The AZIMUT 68S, designed by the architect Stefano Righini, attracted the attention for her nice slender hull painted an unusual dark red. Even though several design particulars, such as the small appendixes of the roll bar and the inverted shark fin-like windows, recall the “family feeling” of the most recent Azimut line, others are distinctly hers. The special square windows that suddenly interrupt the slender surface of the sides, the proportional opening for air intake, the hideaway hardtop, are just an example of her special design. On deck and inside, the innovations are dedicated to increasing the comfort of her future owners and users and suggest that the yacht shall be mainly used in the warm summer days during daytime cruising.
The salon is ample and very bright and is on the main deck in order to “live” the sea and the sun from a 360° angle, nevertheless in case of bad weather it is protected by a hard sliding top, ample windows and the tempered glass bulkhead astern. Because of this arrangement, the yacht is not a real open yacht but rather a “coupé” of the sea. Belowdecks, the staterooms are far from the galley and have separate access to the salon – a special feature hardly found on yachts of this size and which offers total privacy. The master stateroom, located amidships and covering the full beam of the yacht, was created for an intimate feeling of the sea. The architect Carlo Galeazzi created the area belowdecks with a sombre décor and highly contrasting hues: clear fabrics and dark wengé wood create almost severe minimalism in the salon, brightened up by coloured silk bed covers and settees in the staterooms.
The design of the hull, the quite sleek bow and the balanced distribution of weights allow a good seakeeping ability.
