2017 Azimut 55S
TRIPLE POD TRANSMISSION
The triple pod 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 liveability. Duo forward-facing and counter-rotating propellers, eliminate vibration, maximise thrust and neutralise directional deviation. Forward facing props maximise efficiency from undisturbed waters compared to turbulence generated by fixed shaft underwater gear. Search MarineMax inventory for an Azimut 55S near you!
NEW TRANSOM PIVOTING SYSTEM
The stern garage door is a single integral structure combining the swim platform. When opened, the garage door exposes the 2 metre wide teak laid swim platform which may be submerged and disappears beneath the stern. With an additional movement the garage door may be further inclined to launch and recover the jet tender.
CARBON FIBER STRUCTURES
In order to reduce weight and improve performance, innovative hi-tech construction materials such as carbon-fibre are utlised, strengthening floor panels and other structural elements.
The overall result is that structural bulkheads of the master cabin, engine room, garage and the whole overall superstructure boast greater solidity and strength and ensuring high-level performance.
INTEGRATED GARAGE FOR JET TENDER
The garage structure is entirely moulded out of carbon-fibre and offers optimal storage for a Williams 285 Jet Tender.
The development of a specialised tender hauling and launching system offers easy-of-use and safety to the end user.
