Leonard 100

    Italian builder Azimut Yachts united the performance and style of a sport cruiser with the roominess of a flybridge yacht when the Italian yard launched its Azimut Leonard 100 in October 2009, which helped commemorate the brand’s 40th anniversary. Azimut’s longtime designer Stefano Righini intended the flybridge as the yacht’s primary outdoor gathering point. The space accommodates a hot tub and chaise lounges aft, a dining table, and a secondary helm station forward, where a tinted-glass hardtop offers shade. On the main deck at the bow, recessed sun beds afford a secluded space for lounging while tables that lift hydraulically provide a casual spot for dining. Azimut designed the Leonardo’s salon with zebrawood joinery, ivory- and cream-colored furnishings, and teak floors to evoke the ambience of an oceanfront vacation home. The yacht semicircular bank of windows at the rear of the salon opens to the aft deck, and the lower-deck staterooms also feature large windows to further contribute a sense of openness.
