A surprise debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019 for the new model from Azimut Yachts, that exudes charm and develops the style codes expressed by Alberto Mancini in the Collection: modernity, power, design and sportiness, interpreted with the utmost elegance.

Azimut S8 is 80’ 10’’ long and stands out for her highly innovative technology, combining the extensive use of Carbon Tech with a triple installation Volvo Penta IPS propulsion system to deliver undisputed benefits in terms of performance, quiet running, manoeuvrability, consumption and comfort. The one of its kind layout features four cabins on the lower deck and a closed galley on an intermediate deck. The Main Deck concept is an alternation of lounge and dining areas, characterised by seamless continuity extending across the interior and exterior design.

The interiors by Francesco Guida are available in two decor versions: Platinum and Black Pearl. Both cosy and sophisticated, they stand out for the colours and materials used for the furnishings. The Black Pearl version is the one presented at Cannes.
In the stern, the Pivoting Platform Expander system makes it easy to extend the swim platform.

Leading-edge technology

The extensive use of carbon (flybridge, deck and platform) and the triple installation IPS propulsion system (optimised by Azimut Yachts’ Innovation Lab) bring with them a long series of undeniable benefits that make this model even more unique.

Azimut S8 stands out first and foremost for her unprecedented manoeuvrability, silence and significantly lower consumption than the category as a whole. With a more compact engine room, S8’s layout is one of a kind: not only does the night area accommodate four cabins and four bathrooms, but there is also a big garage with room for two water toys and a closed galley on an intermediate deck between the Main and Lower Decks. This means that the Main Deck can be dedicated entirely to indoor and outdoor lounge and dining areas. The perfection of the layout is completed by crew quarters consisting of two cabins with access through a side door aft of the superstructure.

Technical solutions

At technical level, many of the solutions proposed by the ECS (Enhanced Cruising Solutions) programme have been used: active trim control, which automatically adjusts the boat’s trim and ensures the best possible consumption efficiency; joystick driving, which maintains the course set at all speeds; an integrated onboard control and monitoring system.
