Azimut plans to feature its first-ever weekender design, the Verve 40, at the Newport International Boat Show in September and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November.

The Verve 40 is designed to be half traditional walkaround and half day-cruiser. She has a planing hull and triple 350-horsepower Mercury Verado outboards for a cruising speed of 37 knots and a top speed of 45 knots.

Belowdecks, her Canaletto walnut interior includes a sleeping cabin with lockable sliding door, a dinette that converts to a queen-size berth and a galley with a two-burner electric range, refrigerator and convection oven.
