The Azimut 102 is a 101-foot luxury flybridge motor yacht that was produced by the Italian boat building firm from the late 1990s through to 2005. The yacht’s sizeable proportions, sleek exterior and stylish lounge spaces make it a superb option for weeks spent island hopping, and it is perhaps for this reason that the Azimut 102 remains immensely popular on the charter and used markets.
A full-beam flybridge can come covered with either a hard-top with a retractable sunroof, or as an open-air model with a Bimini soft-top. Though layouts are subject to customisation, the 102 comes fitted with a circular, spa-pool jacuzzi towards the rear of the flybridge, surrounded by a seating area that can be laid with bespoke sunpads. At the center of the flybridge is a circular lounge area fitted with curving, leather conversation sofas, ottomans and a set of exquisite coffee tables, while positioned forward is an al fresco helmstation. There is also a raised internal pilothouse with superb visibility situated on a mezzanine level for those who prefer commanding their yacht sheltered from the elements. Azimut Yachts are known for some details and accents that enhance each area's enjoyment.
One level down and there is a snug sofa space on the foredeck as well as a raised, four-pad sunbed fitted onto the superstructure roof for dramatic and elevated sunbathing. The teak-lined aft-deck, meanwhile, boasts enough space to host a dining table and fit a pair of L-shaped transom sofas either side of centrally positioned steps down to the swimming platform. You will also discover a transom garage down here that can store a pair of 4.20m jet tenders as well as a 2-seater waverunner and plenty of snorkelling equipment.
Main deck interiors are plush and sedate, with plentiful use of veneered walnut, teak and mahogany across the floors, joinery, and cabinet doors. The aft salon is reminiscent of a French salon, with three elegant sofas and a wet-bar for mixing refined cocktails. Positioned amidship is a kitchen-galley with all the equipment you need to concoct gourmet culinary creations, and adjoining it is a formal dining room. At the front of the main deck cockpit is a forward-lounge with views out over the water, though this can be altered to turn the space into an owner’s stateroom.
Two, full-beam, en suite staterooms on the lower deck host king-sized beds, work desks, side sofas and plenty of closet room. These are complemented by a pair of en suite twins for a total overnight occupancy of up to 8 guests. Towards the bow there is also a privately-accessed crew quarters should you need staff to assist you on your voyages across the seven seas.
A pair of MTU 16V 2000 M90 diesel engines provide top speeds of over 22 knots, impressive for a vessel of this heft, while a capacious fuel tank will keep you well-stocked for longer and more ambitious voyages.
