The Azimut S7 will make its U.S. debut at the Fort Lauderdale show.

Italian manufacturer Azimut Yachts will have 18 boats on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, including the S7, which will make its U.S. debut.

The 69-foot S7 is part of Azimut’s Sport collection. Its exterior was designed by Stefano Righini, who has worked on many Azimut models, and the interior was handled by Francesco Guida in his first collaboration with the manufacturer.

Azimut builds the S7 with carbon fiber in the superstructure to add strength and save weight. The pivoting platform should attract plenty of attention from visitors to the Nov. 1-5 show.

The boat is available as a sport flybridge, which will be the boat on display, or a coupe. There are four cabins and there is a garage for a tender.
