Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States
"Sylvia VI" is a stunning example of one of Azimut Yachts' most coveted models - the 70 Azimut Flybridge. Built in 2011, she features a hyper-luxurious four stateroom layout; hydraulic swim platform; twin Seakeeper gyro stabilizers; and a massive, sun roof-equipped flybridge (with what surely is the largest in-class sunpad in existence).
Do not be deceived by this Azimut's sleek good looks - she is a substantial motor yacht, complete with twin Kohler generators, workhorse MAN V12 1360hp engines, and all of the bells & whistles one could possibly expect in a yacht of this size. The performance is there too: Sylvia VI cruises at 26 knots and tops out at 30 knots.
Anyone looking for stylish & substantive motor yacht in the 60 to 80 foot range should, at a minimum, have Sylvia VI on their radar screen. While she makes for a terrific private vessel, one could also see her generating extraordinary sums from a charter program too. With Sylvia VI, the possibilities are endless.
Sylvia VI's salon provides for an abundance of seating and entertainment space. To starboard, immediately upon entering through stainless steel-framed doors is a massive U-shaped, leather-clad sofa on which up to 8 guests can lounge comfortably. Within arm's reach of the sofa is a tastefully-styled, oversized coffee table.
Conveniently, one will find the salon's pop-up flat-screen LG TV directly across from the seating area. With the click of remote control button, all shades in the salon can be raised or lowered, depending on the light & mood one desires. Encircling the lower salon area are no less than 5 high-end Bose speakers.
Moving forward, and up two steps of stairs, is a delightfully-sized dinette, with seating for four. Immediately across, to starboard, from the dinette is the yacht's galley. The galley includes everything a seasoned chef (or anyone else for that matter) would need to whip up a gourmet meal - including two stainless steel sinks, high-end appliances (including a 4-burner stovetop & plenty of refrigeration), and enough storage to make culinary magic day after day, for weeks on end.
Forward, to port, is where Sylvia VI's lower helm is found. Virtually every facet of the yacht can be controlled from here - from the Seakeeper stabilizers, to the Xenta Joystick (perfect for docking), to the vessel's FLIR night vision.
Belowdecks and aft of the staircase is one of the Crown Jewels of Sylvia VI - the Master Stateroom. This full-beam, ensuite cabin is every bit as luxurious as one would expect on a vessel of this caliber. To port of this stateroom's (unusually large) queen bed and its exquisitely designed full-length upholstered headboard, is a roomy walk-in closet. Forward of the closet, there is tons of additional storage.
Just forward of the bed is a perfectly-sized flat-screen LG TV. On the starboard side of the Master, just below those iconic Azimut windows, is a small table with two plush, cream-colored seats on either side (note: this writer can attest to their comfort as he is writing this description from one of those very seats). The master head, located starboard aft, features his & hers sinks and a shower that's right out of a luxury sauna.
All the way forward of the master down the companion way - where one will find a washer & dryer to port & starboard, respectively - is the ensuite VIP Stateroom. A queen island berth is easily accessible from either side of Sylvia VI's aptly-named VIP. The spacious wardrobe provides more than enough storage for clothing. Tasteful finishes can be found throughout, with heavy curtains that are sure to keep the sunlight out on those mornings when all your guest wants to do is sleep in.
In between the VIP and the Master is the port and starboard Guest Staterooms. Both are equally-sized and fantastically laid out, with two twin beds in both cabins. Forward of all berths is a full-height hanging wardrobe. The starboard guest stateroom is ensuite, with access to the massive day head, located just off the VIP.
The exceedingly large flybridge of Sylvia VI, with its abundance of seating & sunpads and sunroof-equipped hardtop, is the perfect place to entertain friends & family. To starboard, is a gargantuan J-shaped sofa with a custom, high-gloss wooden table - if there's any better a spot for al fresco dining on a yacht less than 90 feet, we haven't seen it.
Aft of the dining table is where the uber-comfortable lounge chairs can be found. Centerline forward is where one will find an astoundingly large sunpad. The port-side of Sylvia VI's flybridge is, of course, the perfectly-positioned wet bar.
Sylvia VI features large walk-around decks (none of that walking sideways on board this yacht!) and an oversized bow area. The bow is most notable for its oversized sunpad, which practically beckons all sun worshippers on board to lather up on the SPF 30 and kick back with a good book (or, perhaps more realistically, an iPhone).
