The 68 Plus has been built in the Avigliana-based Azimut yard: 21 metres of modern and elegant design, based upon the design ethic of producing a substantial, elegant, sophisticated and innovative boat. Most importantly, this is a boat which, conceptually, could be accepted in all markets, and which should meet the requirements of the most refined connoisseur.
In fact, the Azimut Group has successfully launched not only a splendid boat but also a brand of production philosophy of extremely high technology, together with the highest quality standards. This writer finds it difficult adequately to describe this masterpiece, relying on the pictures taken and memories of the extras on the 68 Plus. The length overall is actually calculated without the aft bathing platform, which adds another meter to the total; the side glass windows, in addition to the trademark elliptical shape, are mirrored and electrically operated from beside the cockpit.
In the master suite, amidships, large vertical portholes have been included so increasing the interior lighting; the guardrail is completely new and redesigned, with a cross-over amidships. Beyond the aft entrance door, there are also two side portholes in the American style; the access ladder to the bathing platform is motorized and can be concealed together with the mounting ladder so that the aft is clear when manoeuvring. The fairlead with anchor chain at the bow pulpit and the aft fairleads are electrically wound. The effort and attention given to the detail, styling and design is truly innovative.
