The Azimut Yachts Verve 47—the builder’s second and largest yacht in the series—is debuting at the Miami Yacht Show.

Power is quad 450 hp Mercury 450R gasoline outboards and the yacht has a stepped, planing hull form. The Verve 47 has a projected top-end speed of 50 knots. Cruise speed is expected to be around 36 knots, which should be ample oomph for most performance enthusiasts. Fuel capacity is 660 gallons and freshwater capacity is 79 gallons.

There are three helm seats on centerline and a U-shaped foredeck lounge is accessed from the portside deck. There is also a foredeck sun pad for three or more guests. The cockpit has U-shaped seating with table to starboard. To port, a door folds out, creating a swim platform.

The yacht’s exterior and interior design is from Francesco Struglia Design. A raked windshield and hardtop work with the yacht’s porpoise-like profile to create a sense of movement in the yacht. Hullside glass flows aft from just abaft the bow, sweeping back and then turning up amidships, visually lowering the profile and lengthening the yacht’s lines, creating a lean, muscular look.

For cruising enthusiasts, the yacht has two staterooms and one head. The forepeak stateroom has a step-up berth and all the way aft is a guest stateroom with twin berths. Between these spaces is a single head with shower to starboard, just forward of the twin-berth stateroom. There is a galley forward of the head and to port is an L-shaped lounge and table.
