Nicknamed “the ultimate boating machine”, Verve 47 is designed for an extremely modern owner attracted by the prospect of reaching his favourite hotspots quickly in an exciting, high-performance craft. Exceptional performance (a top speed of 50 knots), remarkable handling and the original design of the helm station make the new model from Azimut Yachts the perfect boat to go island hopping and enjoy a 360 degrees marine experience.
Remarkable livability, unprecedented on a boat this size, adds the worldwide appreciated Italian touch over to life on board the Verve 47. Combining top of the markets of centre console developments with the sophistication imprinted in Azimut Yachts’ DNA, this yacht is absolutely unique and looks set to establish a new standard in the world of outboards.
The bow design is based on offshore competition boats but retains the signature personality expressed by all Azimut Yachts, while the glazed surfaces in the hull reach up past and are integrated into the gunwale in order to establish a real bond with the sea.
“We took the typically American love of a sports-oriented lifestyle at sea as our starting point and then developed our own take on the concept based on Italian design criteria” said exterior and interior
designer Francesco Struglia, who has always been attracted to the shapes created by dynamics and physics.
The young Italian designer’s work on the Verve 47 takes the intensely exciting ride typical of centre consoles to the next level: the helm station has been enhanced with a side window that creates a remarkable sense of continuity with the outside world. Indeed, the driver enjoys a special bond with the water, particularly at high speed, when the wake that is clearly visible on either side of the boat seems to become part of the yacht’s structure.
Azimut Yachts has worked to obtain the maximum from the interior and exterior spaces. The roomy cockpit, with its fully recessed high-low table and a swing-down side wall equipped for entering the water, can be used for different purposes at different times of day: a dining area, somewhere to relax and sunbathe or, alternatively, as a completely unencumbered, sea-facing ‘party’ space that is perfectly aligned with the design philosophy. The relaxation area in the bow has an asymmetrical layout that can accommodate additional comfortable seating and a big sun pad.
The refrigerators and the outdoor and indoor storage compartments are all generously sized to cater for longer stays on board.
The spacious and welcoming outdoor area in the stern has everything needed to relax and enjoy the open air life, including a multipurpose unit fitted with a wet bar, fridge, ice maker, barbecue, hob and sink. The setup is completed by a TV that can be raised and lowered.
The helm station features a plug and play layout and a glass cockpit dashboard with an extremely clean hi-tech design accentuated by scenic LED lighting. The helm seat can be adjusted electrically and is flanked on the right and left by two more seats. All three have an ergonomic design that tips its hat to the automotive industry.
