Azimut launches new sporty and elegant yacht which offers unparalleled space and amenities, perfect for luxurious weekend trips.
The clean and efficient hull was designed by a naval architect based in Florida, Michael Peters and the clever interior and exterior were created by Francesco Struglia, an Italian designer known for his forward-looking motor yachts.
But, the main brain behind the Verve 47 was Federico Ferrante, Azimut USA’s longtime president, who predicted several features aimed for the American market that you wouldn’t usually see on an Italian yacht. First of all, that’s demand for center consoles.
“I wanted us to introduce a new type of offshore dayboat, but not based on a fishing-boat design,” says Ferrante. “Nobody builds a better fishing boat than the American builders. Italian yachts, on the other hand, satisfy the need for beauty, with sexy lines and elegance.”
When talking about these emphasis on performance here first to mention that Verve 47 boasts four 450-horsepower Mercury Racing engines (a record-breaking propulsion system) and a top speed of 60 mph.
“I knew we needed to help our Italian designers understand exactly what we wanted,” says Ferrante, concerning the Verve series. “So we specified many features specifically for the American market that you wouldn’t see on an Italian yacht.
Up top is a helm equipped with three seats, two electronics consoles, joystick control and bow-thruster for tight maneuvers, and Skyhook station-keeping that uses GPS to keep the 47 in place on the open water without anchoring. American clients will especially love the special details included keeping their tastes in mind; case in point, a special console with pop-up 54-inch color television, Kenyon grill, two-burner infrared stove, refrigerator, and icemaker.
As for that Italian it is visible through open lounging and seating on both the top and lower deck, multi-level sleep cabins, a stocked kitchen, a fully-digital dashboard complete with a sound system, and hull design.
Eight buyers already purchased Verve 47 during its debut at the Miami Yacht Show, and we’ve some information that the base Verve 47 is priced at around $1.3 million which can go higher as you add specs.
