FrontRunners: Airy Craft

The new 44-foot sport cruiser from Azimut Benetti Group–owned Atlantis allows passengers to enjoy the more pleasant natural elements while it protects them from the harsher ones. The cockpit and adjacent seating area on the Atlantis 44 (www.atlantisyachts.it), which made its debut at the Genoa boat show in Italy in October and has a starting price of about $560,000, are open on the sides and aft so that sea breezes can flow through the space. A hard-top roof provides shade for passengers, while a retractable soft top can cover the skipper. The hull is designed to minimize the amount of spray the boat kicks up as it cruises at speeds as fast as 34 knots. The 44 also features sunbathing pads forward, aft, and beside the helm station. Below deck are a pair of sleeping berths, two heads, and a dinett.
