Publish date:

Azimut Yachts has introduced a design competition with Arts Thread, a digital platform for artists and designers, in which the boat manufacturer is calling for new projects from transportation and interior designers.

Participants are being asked to create a new day cruiser for Azimut’s Atlantis collection. The designers are being asked to provide one of following entries: the external lines of a 10-meter boat with inboard engines: the layout of the salon and living area; the belowdecks accommodations and; micro-design details dedicated to comfort such as seats, sundecks and lighting. The use of sustainable materials is a plus.

The winner of the competition will be announced in December and will receive an all-expenses paid three-month internship at the Azimut headquarters in Avigliana, Italy. For more information about the contest, visit
