The new 16 metre yacht by Azimut represents something completely new marking an important landmark for the Company. It is with this model, in fact, that Atlantis becomes a permanent member of the Azimut Yachts family. With Azimut Atlantis 50, the Atlantis models will flank the Collections Magellano, Flybridge , S and Grande. The path towards the union of the names Atlantis and Azimut Yachts ends with success, allowing the Azimut|Benetti Group to offer 5 collections, the widest range of yachts up to 120 feet, under the single brand name of Azimut Yachts. The WSB team steps on board to take a closer look at this new arrival.

This sports cruiser offers both the harmony of contemporary lines, in keeping with the Azimut family-focused designs, as well as the the most highly advanced technological solutions.
