There's something special about being able to leave the dock, just you and your close family and friends on board, without the oversight of a professional captain. The freedom that the sea brings to your life and the contentment that is felt as you look at the smiles on everyone's face is the reward for your hardwork to get to this point in life. Boats between 50 and 60 feet are among the most popular segment in the industry simply because the owner can confidently handle their vessel, especially when equipped with bow thrusters and joystick control.
One of the leading shipyards over the last several years that has consistently been successful in this category is Azimut Yachts. There have been more than 700 pre-owned Azimuts sold in this range in the last 20 years worldwide. The Azimut 50 Flybridge has been among the most popular thanks to its entry-level size, outdoor entertainment areas, and the fact that the Italian builder has been on an aggressive production schedule. There have been over 100 Azimut 50's sold, with several more 50 Atlantis and 50 Magellano models sold as well.
The Azimut 50 Fly has had a remarkable longevity as a model, going back to the 90's and is still being offered brand new today. If you're looking to purchase an Azimut 50, expect to pay between $400,000 and $1.4 million depending on the year the boat was built and its condition. Many of the late-model vessels on the brokerage market are selling for within $100,000 of their asking prices, especially in a seller's market where pre-owned inventory is still limited.

While there are examples of Azimut 50's lasting only a few weeks being listed for sale on the brokerage market, the average length of time in the last two years for this model has been approximately 6 months. Of course, spending the time and energy to get it ready for the market is crucial. Having a pre-market survey done will allow you to find everything wrong with the boat and get it resolved before listing it for sale. Having the survey and receipts of the completed work can put potential buyers' minds at ease when shopping. SI Yachts has a full yacht service center in New York at our Staten Island Marina. Everything from teak work, to electronics, and even engine replacements can be done for you right here with us by an experienced team.
