Manufacturer Provided Description

The Azimut 78 Ultra Motoryacht exhibits the flowing and curvaceous styling which is a trademark of designer Stefano Righini.

The flying bridge is unusually wide, which enhances comfort for those up top. Covered side decks make it is possible to move from the helm to the cockpit completely sheltered.

The large elliptical side windows are a trademark of the Azimut line. Those in the saloon have complete visibility to the outside even when seated. All window glass is bonded directly to the fiberglass - there are no metal window frames that can leak. The 78 is semicustom. The American version is the same on the main deck except that the galley is open to the wheelhouse. On the lower deck this version also has a VIP stateroom (which can be fitted out as an office) and guest stateroom aft, but forward there's a larger crew's quarters with galley that can be accessed from the wheelhouse. A large owner's stateroom is amidship.
