Azuro yacht’s flowing lines are highly distinctive. Continuous sheets of laminated triple glazing are thermo bonded to the superstructure creating a seamless wall of windows. Four distinct deck areas provide space for every occasion. A foredeck for lounging around in privacy while in port and a 70 square metre sun deck that is probably the largest on a yacht of this size. Shaded dining is on the upper deck and Azuro’s main deck terrace combines with the saloon to create an enormous 25 square metre entertaining space.

Azuro superyacht has the largest volume of any yacht of her size. She combines speed and space in a formula known only to Heesen. Interior design is by the acclaimed Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski, who was also responsible for superyacht Ventura; her sistership. Paszkowski’s style takes the form of natural minimalism and Azuro is an ideal yacht for such a beautifully pure concept. Just three materials have been selected for all interior surfaces: teak, limestone and leather.

In the main saloon silk-surfaced limestone adorns the sideboards, floorboards are of unpolished teak and the ceiling is covered with pale tan leather. A remotely controlled set of louvred blinds enables the dining area to be screened off from the lounge or fully opened to reveal the space. Particular attention has been focused on lighting systems throughout the yacht. Custom-controlled ambient lighting can transform the atmosphere frombright full party mode through to pools of subtle illumination.

The sky lounge is designed around the idea of concentric circles: curved glazed doors set behind curved soft sofas and circular polished steel tables. For entertaining, the saloon leads out to a dining terrace that provides spectacular panoramic views.

Azuro yacht’s master suite is set forward on the main deck. Both bedroom and bathroom are full-beam with windows along the entire length of the suite. The minimalist theme is calm and contemporary with sliding panels concealing details such as the entertainment system. Additional suites are all on the lower deck and include a full-beam VIP with a large ensuite bathroom, two double and two twin cabins.
