Azimut 103SL

  • Michael Verdon

The Azimut 103SL (+39.011.93.161, www.azimutyachts.com) is the latest offering from a brand known for cutting-edge design. This curvy Italian yacht—the largest in the company’s Open line—is a true category leader. Longtime Azimut designer Stefano Righini turned 1,300 square feet of usable exterior space, including a large cockpit, flybridge, and private bow area, into an open-air showplace, perfect for relaxing, dining, and recreating. Its garage can hold a 20-foot tender and two personal watercraft. "That lets you have the water toys without intruding into the cockpit," Righini says. "We wanted to retain the cockpit space for socializing."

But the salon, which connects to the cockpit by a sliding door, is no less impressive, with African wenge, various shades of leather, and off-white walls. A 150-square-foot retractable skylight and expansive shark-fin windows flood the salon with light. The master stateroom features a mini-library, a designer bathroom with a hydro-massage shower, and a walk-in closet. The guest quarters offer comparable comfort.
