Some boats look like there’s no space to make them better, but the new Azimut 50 Fly shows us that there’s no limit to improvement, still remaining into the traditional guidelines

How can you better a 16 meter yacht, not just by adding some features and a couple of feet in the name? Azimut took their old 48, and decided to reinvent her completely. Not only the result is very good, but it seems to be the starting point for a whole redesign of the range, with the same process initiated some months ago with Azimut 80, now in a much wider segment of the market. For these reasons and a genuine interest I went to Varazze, close to Savona, for a preview and a first test of the new 50.

4:52 he of waste of everyday in about a week don’t you want to see how you drive a
4:57 boat like this
4:58 do you know to drive the boat may be easy may be difficult
5:02 and he doesn’t just depend on the pilot but the design it to
5:05 the builder and even down to sum up the accessories
5:08 like the joystick which needs to be maneuvered easily
5:13 that will shake it up of at this document travel
5:16 avail lefcourt now then so we really see how this boat goes
5:19 going to accelerate a backup
5:25 all what affect we go quite like the boat is nice
5:29 and level keeps it balanced very important it meet its easy to use
5:34 thing i think i should get the end up going to be carted off
5:37 you call for are usually you choose the most comfortable cruising speed
5:40 according to the sea conditions
5:42 and today play on just right
5:46 come on gotta be up to cannot be neck some interesting facts right technical
5:50 friends
5:50 11.69 its 1,350 recommended
5:54 this is the minimum plane XP now lmao let’s try cruising
5:59 it about you and go eat at me it and it looked like a
6:02 three notable for intrude if the boat can offer a wide range speed
6:06 that makes it comfortable the quicker the own it can choose to get
6:10 to its average on the estimate fifty I so you can silent 15 knots all
6:14 well let’s find out
6:23 I think I’m gonna do not have not been with the G badnaam all
6:26 everything and we’re not even with the maximum speed of the
6:30 as mid-fifties over thirty two knots with the engines revving it 2,450 reps a
6:35 minute
6:35 and that’s against the wind and the sea the maximum speed
6:39 isn’t such an important figure on a pleasure boat but it helps us understand
6:42 what the potential is
6:44 to manage the engines whatever happens whether that be a blast have
6:48 unexpected wing or search of C
6:52 I get within a few feeling even at this be this pope feels great
7:00 I got paid get a bunny got a problem
7:04 thought is happening turning is a pleasure because the boat response
7:07 eagerly
7:07 I know exactly where the point the Ballys and remember this boat is nearly
7:11 60 meters long
7:21 for the thought not be with you bank that now about company
7:24 Apple I like reject Gandhi that became
7:28 as you’ve seen the estimate fifties all boat it’s got everything
7:31 the flying bridge launch some areas six birds contemporary furnishings
7:35 and lovely fittings well-planned electrics and the perfect powered
7:39 engines
7:39 in malls up and rhymes easily so like I said
7:43 as a boat it is a benchmark which of course wouldn’t be the case if
7:46 adding that wasn’t a leader Bob can cripple calls out
7:52 it but in a bid to consider and is still something else to take into
7:55 consideration when you’re thinking of buying a 50-foot flying bridge
8:06 clipper for the video but how else can I show you how stable the
8:11 as you with fifty fly is it doesn’t have stabilizes
