On January 20, 2018, at the 2018 Düsseldorf International Boat Show, Azimut S7 was named the overall winner of the prestigious “European Power Boat of the Year 2018” (EPY) award in the “over 45 feet” category.
One of the undisputed assets of the model, which was unveiled last September at the Cannes Boat Show, is its highly innovative layout. The exteriors, designed by Stefano Righini, embellish the characteristic lines of the brand’s collection with diamond-shaped deckhouse windows, in a solution that gives the boat character and promises to amaze with its plays of reflected light. The S7 is the only yacht in its segment with four spacious cabins, a beach platform expander and a garage for both tender and jet ski. Available in both coupé and sportfly versions, it surprises with its sumptuous materials and the unusual interior design by Francesco Guida.
The EPY 2018 award, which has the same renown in the boat world as an Oscar, represents a huge success for the Italian brand and an acknowledgement by top critics of both the company’s design skills and the quality of its models.
The boats to receive EPY awards, assigned each year by a panel of top international experts from Europe’s leading industry publications, are the most significant and not only in terms of innovation: to receive this prestigious recognition, the yachts are submitted to rigorous testing and assessments based on their design, onboard safety, performance, handling, quality/price ratio and many other factors.
Azimut S7 has been designed and built to the highest standards in the sector and is covered by the HTS High Technical Standard declaration issued by the shipyard. The yacht is also eligible for CE A and NMMA certification for boats under 24 meters.
