The Azimut Yachts Atlantis 51 has a spacious lower deck and a 35-knot top speed.

Azimut Yachts says its Atlantis 51, which recently debuted at Boot Düsseldorf, offers "the pure DNA of an open sport boat with the interior space and comfort you'd never expect to find on a yacht of this size." The 53-footer — like her sisters, the Atlantis 34 and 43 — was designed by Marco Biaggi and Filippo Salvetti of Neo Design.

Owners with a need for speed as well as comfort could find a home with this vessel, which tops out at 35 knots, cruises at 32 knots and has IPS propulsion easy close-quarters maneuvering. Comfort can also be found on the belowdecks, at the C-shaped settee with expandable table amidships and to starboard. An optional 40-inch TV on the bulkhead forward would amp up this dinette’s social vibe, while converting the coffee table to a full dining table would make the space dinner-ready. The galley across is convenient for grabbing snacks and doing meal prep.

Additionally on the lower deck, the forepeak master stateroom has a vanity, bookcase and en suite head. Natural light from a double sky light and side windows brighten the space. The VIP stateroom is abaft the dinette and is “designed as a second owner’s suite,” Azimut says. The stateroom’s double berth can be split into twins, while the third stateroom opposite the VIP has twin bunks. These two share a head directly forward of the third stateroom.

While “spacious” would be Azimut’s choice word to describe this yacht’s lower deck, “open” would easily be the choice for the main deck. Her main- deck is fully open aft, meaning the space flows into the aft sun pad. To starboard is access to the Atlantis 51’s swim platform with a foldout, electric barbecue in the transom. The transom garage has room for a 10-foot-7-inch jet tender.

The main deck has a C-shaped settee with coffee table to port, which faces another small settee for two. The coffee table converts to a full dining table and the smaller settee has two pullout ottomans for additional seating around it. The yacht’s helm is forward and to starboard of the settee for two. On the foredeck, there is a second sun pad accommodating up to three adults and includes a folding Bimini top, an adjustable backrest, integrated cupholders and pop-up LED lights for enjoying twilight or evening hours in solitude.
