When Azimut Yachts in Italy wanted to create a weekender for American boaters, it teamed up with Florida-based Michael Peters Yacht Design, long known for its work on high-speed vessels.
The result is the Verve 47, a sistership that adds space compared with the Verve 40 and that, reportedly, can hit 45 knots thanks to quadruple outboard engines.
Another key idea during the Verve 47′s design phase was making the skipper’s connection to the sea as complete as possible. That’s why the pilothouse windscreen is designed as you can see it in the photograph below: It not only allows for 360-degree views with few structural interruptions in the sightlines, but it also protects against wind and spray while still allowing fresh air to flow through.
Belowdecks are two staterooms and one head, ideal for a weekend getaway with the family or another couple.
