The 2010 Azimut 85, Persistence, is on the market with Denison Yacht Sales. Recent upgrades include a new Garmin electronics suite and audio-visual package. Additionally, all cushions, canvas and covers are new.

The 85-footer has a 21-foot beam and 4 staterooms. Power is twin 1,825 hp Caterpillar diesels, which should give her a 30-knot-plus top-end. When Yachting reviewed the 85, we saw 30 knots on the pins with twin 1,800 hp Cats.

“Looking good in harbor is one thing, performing out at sea is another. When I took the 85 out to sea, she lived up to her promise. Hull deadrise is the key factor to performance in waves and the 85's deadrise of 17 degrees contrasts well with the normal shallow-V found in yachts of this size.”

- Yachting, October 2007
