Azimuts S Collection represents a stunning shift in styling by Stefano Righini. Full of innovative features, the new 55S makes good use of the space-saving possibilities afforded by a triple Volvo IPS package, including a garage for a 9-foot 4-inch  tender and an expandable beach club.


The triple IPS drive installation equipped with supercharged and turbocharged engines for maximum performance. Smaller in dimension and lower in weight when compared to traditional shaft-drive configurations. Engines located at the aft of the vessel, thereby freeing up large amounts of space now available to enhance onboard livability. Duo forward-facing and counter-rotating propellers, eliminate vibration, maximize thrust and neutralize directional deviation. Forward facing props maximize efficiency from undisturbed waters compared to turbulence generated by fixed shaft underwater gear.

Azimuts choice of IPS drives has made other choices inevitable. The engines have to be mounted right astern, so the crew cabin has to be up in the bow. This means, in turn, that the VIP cabin has to be set farther aft than usual, in a wider and roomier part of the hull. Luckily, the IPS600 motors are low as well as short, so there is room for a shallow tender garage over the top of them. 

So you might go aboard the Azimut 55S expecting her to look bigger, at least down below, than the competition. The VIP, in particular, has something of the feel of an amidships suite, with substantial hull windows, a full-size bed, 6 feet 7 inches of headroom, and two useful hanging lockers. The head access is good. Across on the starboard side, and sharing the dayhead with the VIP, the twin-berth guest cabin has just the single hanging locker and additional stowage under the mattresses.

It is in the master cabin that the extra hull volume made available by the shorter engine compartment has really been put to work. It is an L-shaped suite, with a good-size head and shower compartment offset on the port side, which allows the sleeping area to span the full beam of the hull. A big berth (6 feet 5 inches by 5 feet 4 inches) is set on the diagonal, while there is an expanse of floor space and a genuinely useful two-seat dinette to port, by the window. What a great spot for a breakfast tête-à-tête. There is also plenty of stowage, including a large hanging locker and a vast space under the bed, which lifts up on gas struts. Headroom is a reasonable 6 feet 3 inches. 

While the real benefit of the small engine compartment makes itself felt on the accommodations level, up on the main deck there are some smart design elements that also conspire to maximize the size of this 55. There is no step between cockpit and saloon, and the glass cockpit door is divided into four sections that slide away over to starboard. A drop-in seat can be positioned to cross the divide on the port side, joining up with the cockpit’s port-side seating and fostering a sense of continuity between the inside and outside. Meanwhile a huge sunroof in the hardtop opens up to the sky. Very cleverly, the side deck to port continues straight down to the aft steps, without invading the cockpit. 

The convertible saloon sofa on the port side is a typical Azimut touch. The seat back slides fore and aft and also goes up and down, creating either a raised, forward-facing sofa for use underway, or a comfortable bench seat for the dining table. It’s both smart and space-saving. The galley is similarly deceptive, revealing itself from what looks like a sideboard along the starboard side, and seeming to disappear once the worktops are lowered again. Stowage appears in unexpected places, like the bespoke crockery drawer under the helm seat.

With two separate seats and an adjustable wheel, the helm station is strictly business. Sight lines are excellent, and the Volvo Penta / Raymarine Hybrid/Touch electronics package offers great control. The dash layout is busy but workable, and, in a forgivable outbreak of showboating, surmounted by the three tachometers. Look again: Three! However many engines you have, it generally takes at least 1,200-horsepower to make 20 tons of sports cruiser get up and go. The 55S’s 1,305-horsepower triple-IPS installation pushed her up onto plane from a standing start in less than 15 seconds, with peak velocity clocking in 20 seconds later. Azimut claims a 36-knot top speed for the 55S, and cruising speeds from around 22 to 30 knots are a comfortable and a practical prospect, which is more than adequate for most of us. 

Underway the Azimut is lively and responsive to the helm, and remarkably quiet in the saloon with the roof and doors closed, which will make for stress-free passagemaking. That clever sofa comes into its own underway, providing an extra forward-facing seat with great views all round.

Structure and shape of hull

The structural design of the keel has been RINA approved. This implies a further guarantee of the structure's quality; This is also guaranteed by the use of state-of-the-art techniques and the materials used. Construction materials and techniques have been carefully researched in order to find the best balance between quality, weight, and rigidity. The hull, deck, trays and structures are made of high performance sandwich panel with PVC core to achieve maximum rigidity and impact resistance.

An infusion lamination system has been used for these parts, a technique that reduces weight while improving the control and quality of the construction. Vinylester resin is used for the first layers of the hull. This type of resin is extremely effective in preventing osmosis because of its chemical and mechanical properties. Azimut is therefore able to provide a 5-year warranty against osmosis. The deck, deckhouse and deckhouse top are in carbon glass and vinylester resin, to guarantee maximum rigidity and mechanical resistance and considerably reduce the weight compared with conventional glass materials.

The structural bulkheads are in sandwich panel with PVC core. The main pairings (such as hull-deck) are made by means of structural gluing. Deadrise 15.8° aft and 21° in the middle. The presence of large spray rails increases the lift and reduces the roll.
