MarineMax and Azimut also have partnered to develop the U.S. version of Azimut’s popular 84 Flybridge model. MarineMax said the new version features a redesigned flybridge, main deck and lower deck to provide maximum comfort, style and versatility. The U.S. version of the Azimut 84 launches in the fall.
