Azimut 54/58

   "There's definitely something exciting about the way Italians do things. They turn simple foods in to a mangia abbondanza - a feast. A talk amongst friends is not just talk; it is conversazione, with enough animation to make even banter about pasta an event. Then there's the way the Italians build boats. 

   I noticed it the first time I saw the Azimut 54 - her grande nel design by Stefano Righini, which takes form in the sharply raked deckhouse, streamlined profile, abundant curves, and Azimut's trademark elliptical windows. With a style like this she looks very fast, which is what the Italians call molto veloce. But while there's much to look at above the waterline, it's the way she's designed and built - like a fine antipasto, from the bottom up - that caught my eye. 

   The 54 has a deep-V hull with a variable-deadrise that tapers to 18 degrees aft. Her hand-laid fiberglass construction uses Epacryn resin plus isophthalic resins to guard against osmosis. In addition, Azimut claims these resins have lower shrinkage and two-and-one-half times better flexibility than conventional resins." ~ by Ken Kreisler for Power and Motoryacht Magazine, May 1996 


   "The 54 has a deep-V hull with a variable-deadrise that tapers to 18 degrees aft. Her hand-laid fiberglass construction uses Epacryn resin plus isophthalic resins to guard against osmosis. In addition, Azimut claims these resins have lower shrinkage and two-and-one-half times better flexibility than conventional resins. 


Azimut's lay-up schedule also includes laminates with nonwoven fabrics, which it claims are stronger and stiffer than woven fabrics and require less resin to wet out. The texture of these biaxial and multiaxial fabrics also won't print-through the gelcoat after curing, as mat and woven roving can. For added strength with less weight, Azimut uses Divinycell foam sandwich in the hull above the waterline and in the decks and deckhouse.


Azimut also uses computer-aided design to produce the exact dimensions of all interior structures, which makes the construction process more efficient. Once the Azimut Design Team finalizes and approves the plans, a highly accurate computer-interfaced pantograph (an instrument used for making precise copies of a predetermined shape) instructs a digitally controlled router to cut each component out of a sheet of the appropriate material. This not only ensures prefect fir and finish but reduces waste, resulting in lower costs. 


It also provides design flexibility. Layouts, finishes, and fabrics vary according to which version of the 54 you choose: the America, the Far East, or the Europa, as in our test boat." ~ by Ken Kreisler for Power and Motoryacht Magazine, May 1996
