Description & History
Azizam is not only the first catamaran built by JFA Yachts, but it is also the first project undertaken with naval architects Joubert-Nivelt. The objective was to create a yacht with a fine finish and sailing performance from the initial sketches.
The owners’ representative was deeply involved in the construction. The team wanted to have an elegant catamaran with inclined bows and a closed transom, in contrast to other catamarans of that era, where the steps were left exposed on the stern, and there was no swimming platform.
The hull and superstructure are in Nomex carbon, cooked at 100°. To reduce weight and facilitate upkeep, there is no exterior teak except in the cockpit. A carbon mast and a 10.3m « Park Avenue » carbon boom, manual roller-furling, and Kevlar side stay to make it an exciting and fast sailing yacht.
Azizam is equipped with 2 x Yanmar 150 HP and can reach a max speed of 11. 8 knots at 3 500 revs per minute and 9 knots at 1 800 revs per minute.
The interior is fashioned from moabi wood, and the walls are paneled in white lacquer. Azizam was destined to take on a fast cruising circumnavigation. The client, an experienced sailing aficionado, was delighted with her, as were his sailing friends, for she was perfectly adapted to operating with a reduced crew. Since her launch, Azizam has successfully completed her 3 years around the world cruise.
Azizam has been significantly upgraded and maintained by the present owner. She underwent major refits in 2012, 2016, and 2018, receiving, among the rest, a new interior, full repainting, new electrical components, machinery upgrades, and an MCA security equipment survey. Thanks to these substantial refits, the catamaran is now up to date both mechanically and aesthetically, presenting a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking for a turn-key yacht. Pierre Jacques Kubis styled her luxurious interior and exterior.
Azizam has proven herself a successful long-distance vessel completing several round-the-world cruises, performing the transpacific portion of the journeys with an average speed of 14 knots. The continued investment of her experienced sailing owner ensures she is perfectly equipped for ocean-going and challenging offshore cruising. She can accommodate up to 6/8 guests in 4 double cabins, all with en-suite facilities and air-conditioning.
It is a timeless interior, beautiful furnishings, and sumptuous seating feature throughout to create an elegant and comfortable atmosphere onboard. She plans to go to New Zealand via the Caribbean for the America's Cup. The yacht will then be cruising in the Caribbean and the Pacific until Summer 2021, when she is due back to the Mediterranean (if not sold by then).
