The Azimut 72 is a fun yacht. It’s all about enjoying your time on the water with your family and friends, this Italian stallion nails how most people use their yachts. They take short cruises. They play in the water. They sprawl in the sun. And they enjoy their food and beverages.
Board via the teak swim platform and ascend the steps, and you’re confronted by a large sun pad-cum-settee. All of the four panels of the salon doors slide out of the way, opening the salon fully to the cockpit for alfresco living. Once inside, a pair of settees run along each side as a conversation area, and dominating the salon just forward is what the Italians charmingly call “the lunch area.” This elegant table seats six (eight with an extension). On each side of the centerline, the table is leather-topped buffets with stowage underneath, and the oversize windows provide a spectacular view in all directions.
Descend to the stateroom deck, and you’ll find there isn’t a bad cabin in the house. The larger guest stateroom is forward, and it benefits from large windows on each side for both view and air with two opening ports. Intricate shoji screens decorate the lockers, and more stitched leather accents the counters. The en suite head has a roll-away circular shower stall and a gold-leafed basin on the vanity. Just aft is a guest cabin with twin berths that, unlike in other more connubial Azimuts, don’t slide together.
The master suite is just what you’d imagine; cool, elegant, luxurious and infinitely comfortable. Just aft is the large head with two more golden sinks and a truly large stall with a rain shower. The port side of this stateroom has a bureau under more windows and a capacious walk-in closet with bureaus, lockers, hanging bars and even shoe shelves.
