Azimut Yachts introduced the 53 Fly in 2009, with 65 hulls later ­produced and sold around the globe. She was known for a graceful profile, raked superstructure and curved side windows.

Powered with twin 730 hp MAN diesels, she had a 28-knot cruise speed and 33-knot top-end.

The standard layout belowdecks was three staterooms and two heads, with a full-beam master that boasted 6-foot-4-inch headroom.

“The lower helm station can be electronically adjusted for sitting or standing, and in both positions the two screens for the Raymarine G Series electronics suite were easily viewed. Our sea-trial boat featured the Easy Docking System that Azimut designed with Xenta systems. It’s a joystick control that allows you to work the thrusters in conjunction with the engines to get close-quarters maneuverability similar to that of boats with pod drives.” — Yachting, March 2011
