[ENG] AZIMUT 95 RPH – Luxury Yacht Review – The Boat Show


(exciting music) – [Narrator] Today on the Azimut 95RPH… (intense music) I try and drive but don’t
know where to put my hands. Have a bit of trouble finding the cabins, get big-headed, and
feel like a movie star. Then come down to the ground with a bump to something that’s more in line for me. And if you want to see how it finishes up, just keep watching. (exciting music) – [Narrator] Azimut is
one of the Azimut Benetti group brands, along with
Atlantis, Magellano, Flybridge, and Grande, and
offers the widest range of yachts from 34 to 120 feet. We’re at the Cannes Yachting Festival and we’re about to board the Azimut 95RPH. What, you aren’t interested in boats? Just wait, because later on
we do a tour of the inside that you may get some home
furnishing pointers on then. (intense music) We’re on the Cote d’Azur, where you quite often get to
see big yachts like this one. Shall we do a tour? Well, you can drive the boat from here, the flying bridge, or
the raised pilothouse. (dramatic music) Look at the bridge. I’ll need a bit of time to
figure out where to put my hands. The engines start like this though. It’s quite special starting
up 4,400 horsepower. I think the external
lines of the Azimut 95RPH are really cool, very elegant
and modern, typically Italian. Stefano Righini designed it. In fact, he practically
created the Azimut style. This helm is called the raised pilothouse because it’s higher than the main bridge, so the rooms are more inhabitable. We’re moving. The engines are going at the
minimum 600 revs a minute, and six knots. There’s total silence
and it doesn’t even feel as if we’re moving, let
alone on a motorboat. Even though this is an enormous mass, I can feel the propellers pushing
the boat out of the water. The bow doesn’t go under,
the hull comes away easily from the waves and at the stern. The wake shows that the boat
is well-balanced dynamically because it’s not bringing much water up. It’s wonderful to know that it’s so big but it moves in such a brilliant
way, even accelerating. At 1,600 revs we’re touching 14.2 knots. Here we’re even looking at 10ths of knots. On a boat this big, every little detail is of valued importance,
like the speed effect, synced engines are important because the push needs
to be perfectly balanced, and the load on each needs
to be distributed equally, which then goes on to give better mileage. Even though it’s a big
boat, practically a ship, it has a range of flaps,
intruders, to be precise, which are there to regulate
the boat’s balance. But the extraordinary thing is that I didn’t have to regulate
them to get the plate. I left them completely raised because they didn’t give any resistance and the boat went
progressively forward anyway. There are lots of instruments that you need to keep your
eye on, but it’s a lot of fun being in command of something this long. Quite extraordinary. The 2,200 horsepower
16 cylinder MTU engines can keep up a continual 2,100 revs, and speed correlates to 20 knots. But that’s not all. So let’s put our foot down. Apparently nothing is happening. Everything is nice and cozy. So quiet but the dot on
the speedometer is rising. 25, almost. Imagine, it’s almost 29
meters long, 110 tons, and we’re going more than 25 knots. Incredible! This all is being brought to you by Azimut’s engineer, Pierluigi Ausonio. It is stuck to the route
in an incredible way because along the keel
axis, there’s a skeg, which is a fin that goes
lengthwise, like a fish. The reservoir on this boat can
hold 12,000 liters of petrol, a bit like filling up 200 cars. It must be pretty boring too. It’d take up a lot of
time and a lot of money. (electronic music) Of course I’m enjoying being
the pilot on the Azimut 95RPH. Wouldn’t you like to drive it? Sorry, you’d rather be the owner? Right, well, I’ll show you the cabin. (piano music) The owner’s cabin is at the bow
and fills 34 meters squared. On a yacht like this
that’s a record space. If I owned the boat I’d
be pretty happy here. There’s a dressing room with
two full-height wardrobes. There’s a central chest of
drawers and cupboard to the side. They’ve even lowered the
washboard so you can see the sea. The bathroom goes along the
whole beam so it’s very long, and fittings are teak and marble grounded with mahogany pieces. The shower door is teak too. Then if I was the owner,
I’d total off to the stern to fully appreciate the
sun and wind while sailing. The boat is wonderful from here too. If I owned the boat, I’d be
going to the stern for a swim, and the sun and the sea. The bridge is a beach area
filled with mobile bar, beach umbrella, lounger, little shower, and again, if I was the owner, I’d be off into the flying bridge to enjoy the whirlpool. (instrumental music) The living area has the same possibilities as the owner’s cabin, which means there’s a strong
connection with the outside. Lowering the washboard again to make wider and higher windows. It’s a very popular design. The salon hosts 10, and the
eating area is for eight. A 55 inch TV screen comes
down from the ceiling. Its interiors are by Salvagni Architetti. And made by the excellent Tuscan artist. The kitchen area is a work of art. Even the center table is
an object of rare beauty, with details in gold leaf, as is the ceiling above the table. And when you look at the details, you see how precisely
it’s been put together. In truth, I’d like to be the
chef on the Azimut 95RPH. In the kitchen, appliances, materials, and accessories are top quality. Even the technology is top notch here. Or I could be the barman, that
way I could prepare cocktails here on the flying bridge and
just drink in the panorama. You know what I think? It would be incredibly lucky
to be a guest on this boat. There are four cabins, all noble, all the same, all en suite. Headboards are leather, a nice contrast to the shiny mahogany,
the silk, and the teak. The eggshell varnish on the
side tables is irresistible. You just want to touch them. There are there cabins for the crew, and two bathrooms in
an area around the bow with independent access from the kitchen. The garage crosses with
a pivotal sea platform, and there are four for a
four meter plus tender. And there’s room for a
four meter plus tender. Well, I’ve had dreams of
being owner, guest, barman, and chef, but really I’d
want to be the engineer, and look after the power
of these 4,400 horses. Every cylinder is as powerful as a car’s 2,230 cubic centimeters. There are 16 of them, eight per bank, for a total of 35,680 cubic centimeters. In all, I think I’d do
anything and all of the above if it meant I could stay
onboard this Azimut 95RPH. (exciting music)

    What is the range on boat like this? The yacht manufactures always gives very little info about their boats. The range figure is usually nowhere to be found.

    It's an Azimut, which is awesome already, but I do think that the current exterior design is somewhat less timeless and standout than the previous design (with the dolvin like windows).
