“This yacht features extensive use of carbon-fibre, the sleek Azimut 68 wows onlookers with its sporty lines by Alberto Mancini. The Italian builder’s new Flybridge model is also notable for its choice of 3 saloon layouts by interior designer Achille Salvagni, including an aft-galley version chosen for the 1st unit in Asia“–Paul Ebeling
Firmly established as Azimut’s leading dealer in Asia, Marine Italia was last year recognized as the Italian builder’s second most successful distributor globally, behind only US giant MarineMax.
Founded in 2015 and co-owned by Directors Paul Grange and Thomas Woo, the regional dealership is headquartered in Hong Kong, where it’s known as Azimut Yachts HK, while it also represents the brand in Macau, Guangdong, Taiwan and Singapore.
Azimut sales in these markets have been dominated by Flybridge and Grande models, with Marine Italia regularly selling superyachts ranging from the 25 Metri to the 35 Metri and even the 38m Grande Trideck, with a unit of the new flagship ordered by a client in Singapore last yr.
The Azimut 68 is the third Flybridge model with an exterior by Alberto Mancini, following the 78 and 53, while the Italian’s work with the brand also includes the S8 and Grande S10 sportbridge models and the 125ft Grande Trideck.
Launched just ahead of its world premiere at last September’s Cannes Yachting Festival, the 68 features typically sleek lines from a man who cut his design teeth in the car industry.
Marine Italia always welcomes clients and prospects to its office and shipyard in Shau Kei Wan, where Asia’s 1st Azimut 68 was being commissioned ahead of potential showings.
In the current market this is a special opportunity to acquire Azimut’s newest Flybridge model for immediate handover ahead of Hong Kong’s main boating season.
Have a happy, prosperous weekend, Keep the Faith!
