Among the eight novelties introduced into the market in 2009 by Azimut, this new concept, the result of fusing the best of the flybridge and the sport for maximum luxury, deserves a separate chapter.

Its interior, with four enormous suites, is extremely spacious.
Astondoa 76GLX. Spaciousness and design.
