With its flexible flybridge and countless other customizable features, the Azimut 45 (+39.011.93.161, www.azimutyachts.com) is one of the most versatile yachts in its size range. The flybridge offers 40 square feet of space that owners can configure as a large single-level sundeck, a full dining area with a sofa, or an L- or C-shaped seating area. The 45-foot vessel, which Azimut Yachts debuted in Venice, Italy, last June, also allows owners to choose from either a two- or three-cabin layout situated around a spacious VIP stateroom. A central living-room sofa can be converted into a double bed, enabling the Azimut 45 to sleep as many as eight guests. Priced at about $779,000, the yacht offers plenty of action on the water, thanks to two 480 mph Cummins engines that push the Azimut 45 to a 32-knot top speed.
