With both upper and lower steering stations, the Azimut Flybridge 53 will be as comfortable in inclement weather as she is on a nice day like this. Hullside windows both amidships and forward light up the master and VIP cabins.
Designers Stefano Righini (concept and exterior styling) and Carlo Galeazzi (interior design) managed to fit both the midships master suite and a conventional engine room into the 16.7 m LOA hull, with room left over for two more staterooms.
It's tough to beat Azimut for elegant styling, and the Flybridge 53's master cabin shows why. The angled berth has room on both sides for easy entry, although there are step-ups.
On the port side is an intimate booth-style dinette, the perfect place for breakfast when you don't feel like getting dressed and going topside.
The Azimut Flybridge 53's master cabin is amidships, where the hull is widest and deepest. Her 15' 6" (4.74 m) of beam means there's room here not only for a queen-sized berth, mounted catty-corner to leave walk-around space, but also a booth-style dinette for two and a large head with stall shower. Headroom is a regal 6' 4" (1.93 m), surprising when you realize the main salon is right overhead. Triple hullside windows port and starboard pour in natural light.
The engine room is just a bulkhead away from one's head while sleeping in the master, so we hope Azimut's engineering department provided plenty of sound insulation. The VIP stateroom shares a head with the starboard twin-berthed cabin. Note crew cabin aft.
The VIP cabin is typical of a yacht this size, with the berth pushed right into the bow. But with big hull windows port and starboard, this cabin, unlike most, gets natural light.
One way to gain room below is to put the galley in the salon, as Azimut did here. The galley, dinette and lower helm are on the same level, easier for the cook.
Azimut designers put the galley and a formal dining area on the same level as the lower helm, making it easy for the skipper to drive the boat while the cook cooks and the guests kibitz around the table. The salon proper is a couple of steps down, and leads smoothly onto the aft deck through a wide sliding door.
The main salon bathes in natural light through tinted windows. Furniture is pickled oak with lacquered cognac inserts and dark leather tops. Seating is covered with a two-toned velvet and silk fabric. Note the two steps up to the raised galley/dining/lower helm areas.
A stainless-steel-framed sliding door leads from the salon onto the aft deck, shaded by the flying bridge overhang. We'd spend most of our time out there. The cabinet hides a TV.
The steps to the flying bridge look wide and easy to navigate, with a sturdy stainless grab rail to help.
