AZIMUT 55S NEW REVOLUTION
NEW DESIGN – NEW COMFORT – NEW TECHNOLOGICAL SPIRIT
TRIPLE POD TRANSMISSION
The triple pod drive installation equipped with supercharged and turbocharged engines for maximum performance. Smaller in dimension and lower in weight when compared to traditional shaft-drive configurations. Engines located at the aft of the vessel, thereby freeing up large amounts of space now available to enhance onboard liveability. Duo forward-facing and counter-rotating propellers, eliminate vibration, maximize thrust and neutralize directional deviation. Forward facing props maximize efficiency from undisturbed waters compared to turbulence generated by fixed shaft underwater gear.
NEW TRANSOM PIVOTING SYSTEM
The stern garage door is a single integral structure combining the swim platform. When opened, the garage door exposes the 2 metre wide teak laid swim platform which may be submerged and disappears beneath the stern. With an additional movement the garage door may be further inclined to launch and recover the jet tender.
CARBON FIBER STRUCTURES
In order to reduce weight and improve performance, innovative hi-tech construction materials such as carbon-fiber are utlised, strengthening floor panels and other structural elements.
The overall result is that structural bulkheads of the master cabin, engine room, garage and the whole overall superstructure boast greater solidity and strength and ensuring high-level performance.
INTEGRATED GARAGE FOR JET TENDER
The garage structure is entirely molded out of carbon-fiber and offers optimal storage for a Williams 285 Jet Tender.
The development of a specialized tender hauling and launching system offers easy-of-use and safety to the end user.
EMOTIONS OUT IN THE OPEN. The main deck is truly unique. Interiors and exteriors become a part of the same picture, thanks to the crystal door with four panels and wide aperture and the matching style details: teak flooring, upholstery, sofas and cushions.
A handy electric bimini top provides shade in the cockpit at any time of day.
NOTICEABLE PERSONALITY. The strong character of the interiors is brought out by the zebrawood, leather, light technical upholstery,
and dark brown details. Natural light that comes in from the hard-top enhances this Italian style masterpiece.
Safety, comfort and technology: steel handrails that allow you to move around while cruising, and a front-facing sofa that converts into an elegant chaise longue.
NEW 55S. GET READY TO EXPERIENCE A REVOLUTION IN BOATING. The beauty of the new design is matched with the sporty performance, the elegance and Italian style of all of the spaces, and the very latest technology. It is an ideal mix that allows you to experience the seas with a new cruising comfort.

The levels of performance described apply to a standard craft (with standard equipment installed) with clean hull, propeller and rudders. Moreover, it is specified that such levels of performance were achieved under favorable sea and wind conditions (1 on the Beaufort scale and 1 on the Douglas scale); in the case of diverse or less favorable sea conditions performance levels may vary considerably.
Owing to constant technological developments, Azimut-Benetti S.p.A. reserves the right to modify the technical specifications of its boats at any time and without prior notice.
