Azimut 103SL

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." rel="nofollow"

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.
