The Azimut 44 Atlantis is a 45-foot flybridge motor yacht that was launched by the Avigliana, Italy-based boat building firm in 2002. Though no longer produced as new, this vintage model retains its allure on the used and charter markets thanks to a timeless European design, quick performance, and plenty of luxurious relaxation space.
The flybridge on the Azimut 44 benefits from an open-top aspect and a wrap-around Venturi-style windshield for a living space that is at once open to the sun and sky while protected from spray. There is an L-shaped forward sofa to starboard that adjoins a rear-facing sunpad, while to port there is an upper helm station with a double-seater piloting sofa. One level down and you will find a modular sunpad out on the foredeck, and a teak-lined, sheltered aft-deck with a transom sofa, extending teak dining table, and steps down to a full-beam swimming platform. If there is one thing you will find on any Azimut Yacht, it's opportunities to have fun outdoors.
Triple sliding glass doors with polished stainless-steel frames open onto a sumptuous salon room decked in pale leather, glossy cherrywood, Italian carpeting and veneered fiberglass for a refined and classic. Though the cockpit is compact in size, it is still large enough to host a loveseat, plenty of curved cabinetry, a TV stand, a teak coffee table and a large, U-shaped sofa to port. There is also a raised helm station in here equipped with power-steering, GPS, chartplotter and radar. Below deck you will find two lavish en suite staterooms with double beds, storage space and elongated portholes for plenty of natural light. There is also a large galley down here with cherrywood cabinets, quartz granite worktops, a pair of sinks and Miele appliances like a combination microwave and a three-zone hob. Perhaps in a nod to the Italian origin of this yacht, the Azimut 44 also comes equipped with an espresso coffeemaker.
A pair of 450MHP IVECO diesel engines provide the Azimut 44 with top speeds of up to 30 knots, with comfortable cruising speeds of around 24 knots.
