The new Azimut Fly 72, another Italian beauty, will make its U.S. debut at the Herald Plaza location of the Miami show, starting on Feb. 14.

The new Azimut has four staterooms (plus one for crew under the cockpit), all with their own heads, plus a larger than usual social foredeck, a large flybridge, and a light-filled salon with lots of entertaining space and an extra dinette.

Power comes from twin 1,400-hp MAN V12 diesels, paired to straight shafts and delivering a cruising speed of 26 knots and a top speed of 31 knots.

The foredeck is made for lounging and sunbathing, with two separate seating areas – a large gathering of sun pads all the way forward and then a U-shaped lounge, with a table, back against the windshield. Carbon-fiber poles can hold up an optional Bimini to shade everyone there.

The flybridge is a mix of fixed and freestanding furniture, with a sun lounge by the two-seat upper helm station, with a dining table and what Azimut calls an American bar and fridge. The flybridge extends far enough aft to provide overhead protection for the cockpit below.

The cockpit has a large settee table aft, a bar forward, and four steps on each side leading down to the swim platform. Glass doors open to the salon, all on the same level, with sofas and tables aft, for a major social area, and the galley set in the middle. A small dinette area is forward, opposite the lower helm. It can be open, or enclosed with full-height sliding walls and a door for privacy.

The interior has lots of rounded edges, matt finishes and soft colors. Fabio Fantolino, the designer, uses wood paired with bronze and glossy lacquers for visual interest.

Below, the large master stateroom is full-beam amidships, with the bed centered and a settee on the starboard side. The VIP cabin is forward, with a queen bed. The other two cabins, on the port and starboard sides, are larger than usual; one has twin beds and one has a double.

Specs.: LOA: 74’1”; Beam: 18’5”; Draft: 6’0″; Disp.: 117,593 lbs.; Fuel: 1,373 gals.; Water: 290 gals.; Power: 2×1,400-hp MAN V12 diesels.
