Azimut’s Leonardo 100 is an entirely new style of yacht. Italy’s largest yacht builder has incorporated the best of the flybridge and sport yacht exteriors and infused a pied-à-terre philosophy into the interior. Azimut used a sizable measure of innovation and a big heap of courage in the Leonardo’s design.

Like a Leonardo da Vinci painting, Azimut achieved the right balance of proportion, color, and design to make this a masterpiece. The low-slung flybridge, which tends to dominate boxier-looking motoryachts, works well with the sleek, sporty-looking hull and curved windows of the topsides. This upper terrace is nicely divided between the sunning section with Jacuzzi for guests, aft, and the forward helm area for the captain. The bridge also has a stylish grid hardtop with tinted glass that covers the alfresco dining area. Yet the interior, with its open spaces and refined use of wood, also serves as an intimate designer apartment on the water. Natural light pours into the salon from the banks of windows, and the back doors open completely to join the aft deck for total access to the elements. Even the teak floor is continuous, so there’s a sense of unbroken space across the entire deck. Mahogany-tinted zebrano wood furniture contrasts nicely with the teak floors and provides a nice mix with the ivory, cream, and yellow decor.

The palatial master suite on the lower deck is full beam, with rectangular windows on both sides to provide a window to the sea. The area has its own mini salon, en suite head, and large closets. The Leonardo also has a generous VIP suite, as well as two other guest staterooms, carrying a maximum of eight guests. (www.azimutyachts.com)
