The Best of the Best 2003: Production Yachts - Azimut Leonardo 98

For owners seeking megayacht amenities in a manageable 100-foot yacht, the Azimut Leonardo 98 offers big-boat qualities along with the sporty stylishness of an open Italian cruiser.

Stand on the bow of the aggressively shaped hull, and once the twin 2,000-hp MTU diesels catapult the Leonardo to its 37-mph top speed and the wind whips into your face, you will appreciate the boat’s penchant for performance.

The airy and expansive salon includes sofas, a long bar, and an entertainment center, while rounded glass panels enclose the aft area. If you desire alfresco enjoyment, slide the electronically controlled panels back to open the salon. The lower deck contains four staterooms, including a full-beam master suite.
