Azimut Yachts in Italy has introduced the Seadeck series of hybrid motoryachts. The first model is the 56-foot Seadeck 6, which is scheduled to debut at the Düsseldorf boat show in January 2024.
The larger Seadeck 7 and Seadeck 8 models are expected to follow between 2024 and 2025. The Seadeck 7 has a 72-foot length overall, with details about the Seadeck 8 still being finalized.
According to Azimut, the Seadeck series reduces emissions by up to 40 percent compared to similar-length yachts. Each of the models has what the builders calls a “fun island,” an aft terrace developed in collaboration with Alberto Mancini and Matteo Thun & Antonio Rodriguez. Propulsion is by Volvo Penta.
“Seadeck is a new starting point for future generations,” Giovanna Vitelli, chair of the Azimut-Benetti group, stated in a press release. “We wish, once again, to chart a course that will be an inspiration for the entire industry, so that the theme of respect for the environment is interpreted—as it is for Seadeck—with a concrete approach made up of investment, technological research and the courage to introduce a new lifestyle that embraces the sea.”
Did you know? More than half of Azimut’s fleet now includes low-emission yachts.
