Ask an American to pick between style and substance, and chances are good he’ll go for substance. Ask the same question of an Italian and he’ll likely answer that style IS substance. Lucky the dudes who gave us Armani and Ferrari also bring plenty of substance to the table with their high-styled yachts.Italian builder Azimut last fall unveiled its new 82, a replacement for the tried-and-true Azimut 80 Carat, which had been in the line for eight years. The 82 is a muscular, feature-rich yacht with flash and flair—a testament to those indefinable things that make guys in Italian suits stand out from the crowd.
Dinner at the Club?
Make no mistake here: the Azimut 82 was not built for nautical curmudeons. It’s, well, a shade on the flashy side. If you can get past that though, this boat has plenty to offer, especially if you fancy beating everyone else to the club bar.The Italians don’t do trawlers. Vessels in this size range from Italy generally are well-endowed under the hood. In the case of the Azimut 82, a pair of Cat C-32s generating 1,675 hp each will wind the boat up to a hissing 28 knots, according to reports.
If you like to go fast—and you prefer Armani over Brooks Brothers—an Azimut 82 might suit you just fine.
