The Azimut Atlantis 58 is a sporty 62-foot express-cruiser yacht that was released by the Italian boat building firm back in 2011. The concept behind the Atlantis range of yachts by Azimut is to combine speedboat-like performance and sportscar-like agility with the sort of contemporary styling and luxury amenity found on much larger motoryachts. The Atlantis 58 delivers on this promise, producing a sleek yacht styled in collaboration with Neo Design studio that is ideal for thrill-seeking weekend cruising.
A single level main deck is dominated by a coupe-style cockpit that has an open aspect to the rear for a breezy and elemental feel. The teak-lined, al fresco aft cockpit has been designed with no transom wall, which creates an intriguing and innovative multi-tiered living space with a bench-style sofa connected to an elevated, rear-facing sunpad and full-beam steps down toward a hydraulic swimming platform. Out on the foredeck there is yet more sunbathing space in the form of a raised sunpad with marina-facing views, where you can laze for hours in the summer sunshine.
The teak flooring continues as one steps into the internal cockpit, where swooping side windows and a sloping windshield at the front provide plenty of natural light. And if that wasn’t enough, the front-half of the cockpit features a glazed roof that fully retracts at the touch of a button, giving this yacht the feel of an open top model. There is a teak dining table and an L-shaped leather sofa to port, as well as a wet bar with an icemaker, fridge and electric grill to starboard, while positioned forward you will find a pair of helm sofas and the helm station.
Lower deck spaces on the Atlantis 58 truly set this Azimut Yacht apart from other day boats, turning it into a genuine overnight cruiser. Two en suite master staterooms provide sumptuous sleeping space for up to 4 guests, with one room positioned toward the bow and benefiting from knife-insert windows and a skylight. The other is a full-beam room positioned amidship and comes with trapezoidal windows, a king-sized bed as well as side seating. There is a further private room on this level that can be turned into a single berth, though many owners choose to turn this into a private office, a snug living space or a nifty gym. The main lobby on the lower deck is given over to a dinette with a U-shaped dining sofa and a breakfast table, as well as the main kitchen galley that is equipped with Miele appliances, light oak paneling and Avonite worktops.
Of course, the Azimut Atlantis 58 is not just designed around luxurious accommodation but is built for speed as well. A hard-chine planing hull with a variable deadrise offers supreme balance and agility on the turn, while a pair of turbocharged 1,000MHP MAN V8 shaft-drive engines provide top speeds of around 44 knots. Bow and stern thrusters provide that extra level of agility when handling this speedy vessel, while the latest in Raymarine navigational equipment ensures confident piloting.
