Azimut Atlantis 51 is a 16-meter “open,” flagship of AzimutYachts‘ smaller sized range. The boat was designed in its exterior lines by the Neo Design studio of Marco Biaggi and Filippo Salvetti, who have been working with the Avigliana-based giant since 2009.
To call the Atlantis 51 an open, even though there is no physical caesura between interior and exterior, seems, however, a bit of a stretch because the superstructure is very much present both in the function of protecting the cockpit (the opening hard top still allows plenty of air to circulate when you want to sail with the wind in your hair), and in the eye appeal that always remains well balanced even though the hull volumes are more than abundant.
Inside and out: here’s the Azimut Atlantis 51
The credit for this achievement should be sought in the thin sections of the upper part that lighten the deckhouse and the glazing mullions, which surround the three sides of the sheltered part of the main deck. An important contribution also comes from the fenestration that characterizes the entire broadside. In this way, even the pronounced maximum beam, vertical bow and high freeboard, which help give the living spaces, remain tied to an object pleasing to the eye.
On deck, in the bow and at the aft end of the cockpit are the perfect spaces for sunbathing, while all the rest of life aboard we move to the midships, a space where really to pare the shade, there is no perceived separation from the natural environment.
Azimut Atlantis 51: a very stylish coupe
Striking in the parallels to a coupe of automotive memory is the driver’s station with air vents that make the environment more habitable even when the temperature drops a few degrees below the comfort zone. The volumes of the hull, however, unfold more when you descend into the lower pinte than on deck.
As many as three cabins are placed here: the owner’s stateroom in the bow, equipped with a private bathroom with separate shower, the VIP and the cabin with stacked beds behind the engine room. Between these two ends is a dinette with a C-shaped sofa to starboard, while on the port broadside is the galley.
