Azimut S6 Sportfly: This triple-engined bruiser just got even better

Azimut Yachts has introduced an addition to its striking S6 model in the form of this Sportfly version.

Arriving almost two years after the launch of the standard Azimut S6, the S6 Sportfly neatly incorporates the extra deck, which features a swathe of sunbathing space and a second helm station.

Access to the top deck is via a ladder that retracts neatly into the flybridge overhang when not in use. 

As with the standard S6, carbon-fibre is used throughout and extends to the top deck on this version to minimise the effect of the extra height and weight incurred by the extra deck. 

From the sun deck down, the boat is identical to the S6, with a sprawling cockpit, galley-up layout and three generous cabins on the lower deck, including a full-beam master cabin ensuite. 

A triple IPS installation (of 550hp per engine) leaves enough room for a generous double VIP cabin forward with space ahead of it for the crew quarters and a tender garage at the stern. 

The S6 models aren’t the first in the S range to use a triple pod drive installation and though there are three engines and three pods to look after, Azimut insists that triples offer the best balance of performance, economy and handling for a boat of this size. 

Specification

LOA: 59ft 1in (18m)
Beam: 15ft 7in (4.75m)
Engines: Triple Volvo Penta IPS700
Top speed: 35 knots
Starting price: €1,340,000 (ex. VAT)

DutchCraft DC25 yacht tour: This all-electric tender boasts a modular layout

There’s a lot to admire about the DC25. It’s an all-electric 26ft sportsboat with a petrol-rivaling top speed of 32 knots and a decent range – DutchCraft claims to have got 42nm out of it at a constant 32 knots.The lithium-ion batteries are stowed along the centreline to keep them as low as possible and help maintain stability and a level running trim. The drivetrain consists of a 135kW electric motor mated to a Mercury Alpha sterndrive for efficient performance and ease of maintenance.

DutchCraft DC25 yacht tour: This all-electric tender boasts a modular layout

There’s a lot to admire about the DC25. It’s an all-electric 26ft sportsboat with a petrol-rivaling top speed of 32 knots and a decent range – DutchCraft claims to have got 42nm out of it at a constant 32 knots.

The lithium-ion batteries are stowed along the centreline to keep them as low as possible and help maintain stability and a level running trim.

The drivetrain consists of a 135kW electric motor mated to a Mercury Alpha sterndrive for efficient performance and ease of maintenance.

The modular deck design is another neat idea with a flat floor, a folding transom and tracks along each side enabling you to slide in a range of different seats, diving racks or storage units.

It means the DC25 can carry everything from bikes to SUPs and Seabobs as well as multiple passengers. There’s even a drop-down bow door so you can nose up to a beach and disembark guests on to the shore.

Those oddly proportioned looks also serve another purpose, allowing the hard top to cantilever forward and cover the bow while leaving the helm free for a more open driving experience and to lower the air draught when stowed in the garage of superyachts.

That last point also gives a clue to the boat’s target market and helps explain the less good news, namely a starting price of €275,000 before tax.

By normal standards that’s a lot of money for a 26ft dayboat, but for a superyacht tender with an all-electric drivetrain, it’s almost good value.

Specification

LOA: 26ft 3in (8.04m)
Beam: 7ft 9in (2.38m)
Engine: 135kW electric
Top speed: 32 knots
Starting price: €275,000 (ex. tax)
