The Azimut Atlantis 43 encompasses the best of Italian boatbuilding, and tests the author’s theory on boatbuilding and culture.
The outside living space for example, it’s extremely functional and versatile with an aft sunpad that conceals dedicated fender stowage, along with a movable backrest to form either forward- or aft-facing seating. The seating rests atop a garage, which can house a small tender up to 6 feet 9 inches long. Additionally the platform lowers and can be equipped to handle a slightly larger tender.
The portside wet bar has space for a refrigerator/freezer. The starboard settee surrounds a teak table and can seat up to seven comfortably for outdoor meals. I’m not kidding. Opposite, on the forward port side is a raised bench seat that converts to a forward-facing chaise longue, and also allows for the guest stateroom’s decent headroom below.
It’s not surprising that a boat built in the country that developed the concept of al fresco has not one, not two, but four exterior areas for lounging and relaxing. That’s a key component of a cruising boat. There’s the helm chaise, the U-shaped settee, and sunpads on the bow and stern. Access to the forward deck from the cockpit was safe thanks to well-placed handholds and grippy teak decks. The 43 pushes the width of the deckhouse right to the limit, resulting in relatively narrow side decks.
A large, soft, opening sunroof turned the 43 into an open express in less than a minute and opening side widows were a welcome benefit during our summer sea trial. Although there is a double helm seat, the center wheel orientation really creates a one-person show while running. The unobstructed, single-pane windshield made driving through an active commercial
