The MarineMax Dallas Yacht Center said the first Azimut yacht will arrive this month in Dallas and be available for public viewing by making an appointment for a private showing.

The new 2016 Azimut 50 Fly is equipped with twin 670-hp Volvo Penta D11 diesels, making it capable of speeds exceeding 30 knots and a cruising speed of 27 knots.

“The designers were challenged to design a 50-foot yacht that would mimic the incredibly popular Azimut 80,” MarineMax Dallas store manager Tyler Choyke said in a statement. “By doing just that they created a stylistic cohesiveness throughout the Azimut flybridge collection.”

The main deck interior includes a salon, dining area and a raised helm. Below the main deck is the galley and three cabins. The master stateroom is full beam, amidships with a centerline berth and en-suite head. The VIP stateroom, forward, also features a centerline berth and shares a head with the starboard-side guest stateroom.

“Everyone at the MarineMax Dallas Yacht Center are excitedly anticipating her arrival. Many of our owners have already made their reservations to get onboard. I suggest that anyone else who wants to see this magnificent vessel, please make reservations early. Most likely, this yacht will soon be gracing the waters with its new owners,” Choyke said.
