With a an exterior design by Azimut’s long-term partner, Stefano Righini; and the interior designed by, Carlo Galeazzi, this Italian superyacht, reflects elegance at its very best. Her design is timeless and it is elegant.
From this galley (also a crew's mess), food goes directly to a 12-seat dining room table at the far end of the saloon. From the outside this design is more superyacht than production yacht. The profile sweeps up, first to the pilothouse windows and then on to the flybridge where an arch mast supports two hard tops that extend both fore and aft. These provide effective shade over the flybridge; large panels can be opened up to the sun.
The long run of the flybridge caters to every relaxing need with a Jacuzzi and ample entertaining area. The top helm tucked into the port corner puts the captain within sociable reach, and has all the equipment required for the control of this yacht.
The main helm is just below in the raised pilothouse. The angled wheel is flanked by an extensive array of screens that provide all the information for monitoring, controlling and navigating, run through a central touch screen.
Between owner’s cabin and the salon there is the galley and the entrance to the crew quarters. The well-equipped galley leads into a serving pantry that also acts as the crew's mess room. From here food can go straight onto the 12-seater dining table that fills the forward end of the salon.
In the salon, comfort is king, and quality reigns. The lounge settee, sweeping round on the port side with a couple of low tables for drinks, faces the panel TV that rises from the sideboard opposite. A bar has been fitted into the starboard corner, served by four bar stools.
The 116 has 5 cabins. One on deck master stateroom and bellow two double cabins, and another has two twin cabins. All of the cabins have en suite bathrooms.
The master stateroom is very ample and well lit. Its triple large oval portholes on both sides give natural light. It also has a walk-in closet and a very large bathroom with his and her sides separated by a shower box equipped with privacy glass.
The aft cockpit has a large table with matching settee and steamer chairs. There is also a separate bar serving this area. Steps lead down on each side to the swim platform, which tucks down when the large garage door folds outwards for boat launching. The garage houses a tender and two jet skis; the boat and one jet ski have their own launching ramps.
The over 4,000 hp of these MTU engines gives this sturdy yacht a top speed close to 24 knots with a comfortable cruising speed of 20 knots and the rolling is kept firmly under control by the Trac stabilizers.
