Azimut Yachts has demonstrated its belief in the importance of direct contact with clients by organising a private event to fill the gap left by the cancellation of this year’s Miami Yacht Show.
The main aim of the event, to be held at Pompano Beach from 12th to 14th February, is to offer clients in the Americas another chance to get up close and personal with 14 of the best-known models in the Azimut Yachts collections, in the privacy and safety of a boat show organised in full compliance with anti-COVID regulations.
The host, Azimut|Benetti Americas president Federico Ferrante, explained, “We’ve organised this international event to tap into the opportunities of a vibrant market that sees recreational boating as a valid alternative to travel. Spending leisure time on a yacht continues to be a great way to be with your nearest and dearest, surrounded by nature and in a totally safe setting.”
One of the main highlights promises to be the Magellano 25 Metri, a symbol of Azimut Yachts’ innovative prowess in terms of both design and technology, which has proved to be a huge success in Europe and, since its debut in Fort Lauderdale, also the USA. The result of collaboration between two renowned names in the world of design, Vincenzo De Cotiis (interior design) and Ken Freivokh (exterior styling), this is a sophisticated and accommodating yacht, created for owners who are looking for exceptional levels of comfort.
In true Azimut Yachts ‘thinking outside the box’ style, the event will also feature the digital introduction of the Verve 42, the latest addition to the Verve family. Designed by Francesco Struglia on a stepped hull by Michael Peters and powered by a Mercury Racing 450 HP triple propulsion system, the Verve 42 is destined to revolutionise its segment. The Pompano Beach Boat Show will be the first time the yacht has been revealed to the public anywhere in the world, and orders can be placed during and after the event.
Also on show will be various yachts in the Fly Collection, from the 50 up to the largest model, the 78 Fly, with its perfect balance between sophisticated design, advanced technology and impressive dimensions, a Volvo Penta IPS triple propulsion system, exterior styling by Alberto Mancini and interiors by Achille Salvagni.
The Atlantis Collection will be represented by the 45, while S6 and S7 will fly the flag for the super sporty S Collection. Joining them will be the Magellano 66, the Verve 40, and the 25 and 27 Metri models from the Grande Collection.
