The applied Azimut research program:
This program makes an established production yacht available for experimentation. Innovative solutions are considered to discover whether or not they are paractical and feasible. This test yacht is called Model K and this process allows the company an opportunity to try out numerous different yacht design proposals. This contributes to the introduction of innovative solutions that improve both performance and quality of life on board. This innovative approach to the boating industry has given a strong contribution to the Azimut brand in so becoming a leading luxury boat and mega yacht builder.
