Sometimes you just need someone on your side. Hiring a United Yacht Sales professional broker to assist you in the purchase of a yacht can take the stress out of the buying process, as well as save you money. The vast majority of new boat dealers in the world will work with outside brokers when they have a client who wishes to purchase a new yacht. This doesn't cost the buyer anything as the commission to the broker is paid by the dealer, which is already worked into the asking price of the boat. The benefits to using a United Yacht broker when purchasing a new yacht include:
- An unbiased and knowledgeable sounding board as to what is the right type of yacht, brand, and model for your needs.
- Someone to represent your interests. Going through a transaction with a new boat dealer can seem one-sided, having someone in your corner helps.
- The back-and-forth negotiation can lead to stress. Let our team take the burden off of you of negotiating the best deal.
- It doesn't cost you anything and can save you thousands.
UYS owners Brian Boettler and Jeff Palmer had such a situation in early February as a longtime client looked to purchase a new yacht for cruising, entertaining, and island-hopping the Caribbean. After visiting several boats and conferring with the team, a new 2020 Azimut Yachts Grande 25 Metri was purchased. Because this was a new boat, the asking or selling price can not be publicly advertised. The new Azimut will be named "KNOT HIS" and will be primarily based out of Fort Lauderdale.

Azimut Yachts, like many euro-style motor yachts for sale on today's market, puts a large emphasis on the flybridge design. The staircase entrance from the cockpit leads you to a wonderfully spacious bridge that creates the perfect ambiance whether sunbathing in the afternoon or entertaining guests under the stars with an al fresco dinner.
Farthest aft and starboard on the flybridge is an open area with easily moved furniture. The wrap-around clear barrier provides safety so no one falls, while also not obstructing any views while enjoying the sea. Portside is an open space that can be used for additional furniture, sun loungers, or water toys. Forward on the starboard side is a wetbar with multiple bar stools. This area features a grill, ice maker, small refrigerator, and storage. Across from the wetbar is a U-shaped couch with teak pedastal table for dining. The captain will appreciate the upper helm station which has a companion seat next to the captain's chair, as well as large sunpads forward. The factory hardtop features a sunroof for the ultimate exhilarating driving experience.
While the flybridge is a focal points for any yacht buyer of this type of vessel, the other exterior entertainment spaces should not be discounted. The foredeck lounge area follows the contemporary trend of combining additional seating with sunpads. It wasn't too long ago that builders would outfit the bow with a pair of sunpads, anchor locker, windlass, cleats, and call it a day. As seen on many leading luxury yacht brands like Princess, Sunseeker, Ferretti, and others, the bow area now encompasses much more. On the Azimut Grande 25m, the foredeck features consist of an extra-large sunpad for 3-4 guests with drink holders, a u-shaped couch, and a table for cruising with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
The aft cockpit is similarly styled for entertainment and dining, yet under the shade of the flybridge overhang. The C-shaped couch appears to be right at the waters edge, offering incredible views of the horizon. Pull up a few chairs to the cockpit table and you have room for 6 to 8 guests. The recessed lighting and teak floors finish the ambiance with class.
If you order new, the Azimut Grande 25 has two different main deck layout options. Designed by Stefano Righini and Achille Salvagni, the standard main deck layout consists of a salon seating area closest to the cockpit doors, a centrally-located formal dining space, a galley, and then the inside helm positioned the farthest forward.
The optional interior layout on the Azimut Grande 25 does away with the separate, formal dining area and extends the salon into one massive room. This layout might be ideal should you choose to put your vessel into a yacht charter program.
As you can see below, the salon in the standard layout if bright, open, and spacious. The furniture is modern, comfortable, and accents the color palette chosen by the designers. Azimut truly has earned their place atop the luxury yacht market as each yacht feels like home on the ocean.
For extended adventures aboard the Azimut Grande 25, the lower deck accommodations offer a rejuvenating night's sleep for up to 8 guests. There are 4 cabins on the lower deck each with their own en suite bathroom. The master suite is placed midship and stretches the full 20' 4" beam of the yacht. The VIP suite is found forward in the bow and is nearly as elegant as the master. The additional guest staterooms feature a full-size berth in the portside cabin and twin side-by-side berths in the starboard cabin.
