120SL is Azimut Benetti Group Largest Yacht Model
“‘Work well’ was an expression that might have been acceptable in past decades. Today a quality product is the result of a scientific method, of rigorous rules and procedures which must be respected by all and with the utmost care.” This is according to yacht company, Azimut Benetti Group, and as they unveil the third unit of their largest model, the 120’SL, that sentiment is not lost for one moment.
Everything about this company, from the way they cater to their clients, to the excruciating detail and care they have for their work, as well as those who work for them, mirrors what an outstanding luxury company should be.
The 120’SL has many upgrades and improvements, as Azimut strives to always be on the cutting edge of the luxury yachting community. Thanks to two lateral jets, a Rolls-Royce central booster, as well as adding three MTU 16v 2000, 2640 horsepower engines (2450 rpm) the 120’SL now has a top speed of 39 knots.
Azimot prides itself on allowing the client as much input toward design as possible, and with concept and style options available from Stefano Righini and Carlo Galeazzi (interiors) the clients have many sleek, modern, and luxurious options to choose from.
The 35.5 meter yacht is capable of housing 3 guest cabins which include: one VIP cabin with a double bed in the bow and two cabins with double beds amidships. All rooms have a private bathroom, with an extra head available in the lower deck area. The owner’s cabin features a his-and-hers-bathroom in its 43 square meters space, and the yacht also has enough room for cabins for a 3 person crew. The company’s Crew Network service has even added the complimentary Expert Captain Search and Selection service to help clients fill those important roles. The yacht’s moving skylight and glazing throughout the middle deck sitting area and bar allows for an open feel to the space.
The yacht’s grandeur does not stop with its interiors, its exterior also features: a small sitting room, two large sun pads, a steering station, Jacuzzi, and dinette sofa at the stern, the swimming platform above the transmissions with stairs going up to the cockpit, and the largest garage in its category that can house a tender of up to 5.5 meters and two jet skis up to 2.9 meters in length.
According to Paolo Vitelli, chairman of the Azimut Benetti Group, “Azimut Grande represents a tangible response to the needs expressed by our boat owners: it is an appealing and distinctive line that doesn’t cut corners in terms of comfort and flawless performance.”
