FrontRunners: Flexible Flybridge
The Azimut 45 (www.azimutyachts.com) features the most adjustable configuration in the Italian builder’s flybridge collection. The 45-foot weekend cruiser boasts a nearly 130-square-foot upper deck with a modular layout. On the flybridge, a large table allows for top-deck dining, though with the twist of a few knobs passengers can stow the table and reshape the space to serve as a sun pad capable of accommodating as many as 10 loungers. The Azimut 45—which debuted in June off the coast of Venice, Italy, around the time of the annual Azimut-Benetti Rendezvous—is available in a two- or three-stateroom configuration that sleeps as many as eight.
