The Azimut 62 is a 64-foot flybridge motor yacht designed for weekend cruising that was released to the public in 2002. The Azimut 62 built on the success of the Azimut 55, retaining the sleek and curvaceous Stefano Righini exterior with cresting wave windows, but adding an extra few feet of length, better engines and the rugged capability to cruise on the open blue waters of the sea. Though no longer produced by Azimut, and eventually superseded by the release of the 62E in 2007, this is still an incredibly popular yacht on the used and charter markets.
The open-top fiberglass flybridge on this Azimut Yacht makes the most of its compact dimensions to turn the entire starboard side into a sprawling seating area with a leather dining sofa that directly flows into a forward-positioned sunbed with a cocoon-style aura. There is also a piloting sofa at the port-side upper helm station, not to mention rear storage space for a water tender, a fiberglass breakfast table and a wet-bar console with an outdoor grill.
On the main deck you will discover a sheltered aft-cockpit with teak floorboards, a transom sofa and room for an al-fresco dining table, while up on the foredeck there is a three-seater sunpad with headrests. At the stern there are side steps down to an almost full-beam swimming platform, with transom access to a rear crew quarters with its own head.
Interiors by Carlo Galeazzi pick up on the curved motif of the Azimut 62’s stylish exterior, and the aft salon features a rounded leather sofa, a circular leather love-seat and curved cabinetry in glossy cherrywood. A couple of steps up leads you towards a U-shaped dining sofa with an extending table, as well as an elliptical walk-in wet-bar and kitchen galley with a cherrywood and stainless steel floating drinks platform. The galley is stocked with high-end Miele appliances and boasts a convection oven, a four-zone ceramic hob, a fridge and a large basin. At the front of the cockpit sits a stunning helm station that looks like something lifted out of a passenger jet. Equipped with Raymarine navigational equipment, this sinuous dashboard is positioned centrally for superb visibility, and comes with power steering as well as bow and stern thrusters.
On the lower level you will discover three en suite bedrooms, including a starboard twin berth, a VIP guest room to the bow and a full-beam, amidship owner’s stateroom. The owner’s room is the pick of the bunch, and includes an angled king-sized bed, an S-shaped work desk with chairs, a full-height closet, a walk-in shower, beveled mirrors, enameled crystal taps and translucent sinks. Downstairs rooms feature wide portholes, while the owner’s stateroom boasts a pair of either triple-pane scallop-shell windows or triple mullions.
A pair of powerful Caterpillar 1130MHP engines fire this yacht to top speeds of 32 knots. However, some owners choose an upgrade to MTU 8V 2000 engines for full-throttle speeds of around 38 knots. Whatever your choice of engine, the Azimut 62 is a smooth and stable ride with efficient planing on the move, thanks to a proprietary hull designed by the in-house Azimut team.
