Beautifully styled and impeccably detailed, the Azimut 75 Motor Yacht achieves an impressive balance of advanced engineering, luxurious accommodations and superb open-water performance. Indeed, the palatial interior of the 75  Motor Yacht  is nothing short of spectacular in its execution. The salon, with its matte cherry woodwork, sweeping curves, and plush furnishings is overwhelming in both size and comfort. The full-beam master stateroom— with unique vertical hull windows—is more like a hotel suite, and each of the three guest cabins has a private head. On deck, the cockpit has plenty of lounging space and a bridge overhang provides protection from the weather. Additional features include sliding deck doors, raised bulwarks, a huge foredeck sun pad with sun shade and a big anchor locker with a chainwash. Unlike most Italian yachts, the engine room and crew quarters are quite large. Both helms are also very well laid out and comfortable with excellent visibility. Regardless of whether you are up top or down below, you can run with up to 5 guests underway. On her massive fly bridge, the 75 also features a best in class, fiberglass hardtop with sliding fabric center, that allows for sun, stars or shade with the push of a button. Built on a modified-V hull with propeller tunnels, twin V12 1,360hp MANs  cruise the Azimut 75 Motor Yacht at 25-26 knots and top out around 29 to 30 knots.

1994 Azimut Custom Modfied Pininfarina COCKY was purchased by her third owner in 2015.  Several years ago the engines were removed from the boat and built by MTU. The previous owner designed an 8 foot extension to improve the looks, handling and livability of the yacht.  The result is a great looking yacht with a spacious Aft Deck and a huge finished Lazarette that can easily be fitted out as a Crew Cabin.  Access to the Engine Room has been greatly improved.  Heat sensitive electric switch gear is now located in the Lazarette which along with the Engine Room has a dedicated air conditioner. The spacious interior of the yacht has high gloss cherry joinery as only Azimut can do.  High end finishes abound.  COCKY is most assuredly worth a close personal inspection.  The new owners made many important improvements in 2015 but are pursuing individual interests so COCKY has been regrettably put up for sale. Owner willing to accept smaller trades of approx. 50% value.     *Of special note is the fact that the yacht is owned by an LLC with Fla. sales tax paid.

She features a spacious cockpit for entertaining and sun bathing and offers three private staterooms below. Key FeaturesLots of seating and sun bathing areasLarge sun pad for two up on the bowWraparound lounge with table and large sun pad aftWet barLarge swim platform with teak deckThree private cabins with accommodations for six peopleEntertainment centerInterior finished in American cherry woodFully-equipped galleyCranchi Mediterranee 50 Captain's ReportAn Italian Gem Tested by Capt. Brandon De Natale The Mediterranee 50 is built in one of the most industrialized boatyards in the world, and it is evident when onboard that attention to detail and superior old world craftsmanship have gone into building this boat. The 50 is an Italian cruiser with all the comforts and amenities you would expect on a 60 + foot yacht. Only a few of these exquisite vessels are shipped to the United States every year and I was lucky enough to test one thanks to Abruzese Yacht Sales in Yonkers, New York. The design of this European vessel is a breath of fresh air. Most state side built boats in the same range I find bulky or outdated. And most look the same and don’t have a character that is all their own. Not only does the Mediterranean’ 50 have sleek sexy lines and eye catching performance; it also delivers everything you could possibly need in an extended range cruiser. There are so many thoughtful and innovative features onboard that it took us a full day to shoot video of everything we thought was worthy of mentioning. Power This boat is so well laid out that it is perfect for a large family that wants a comfortable and fast cruiser to take them out to their favorite destinations and back over the course of the weekend. With her three staterooms and two-head setup you can do just that… and do it in style. One of the major contributing factors to the fast ride and extremely generous range are the twin 715-hp Volvo Penta D12 EDC engines. These are placed well forward and very low and together in the boat, leading to excellent performance and stability. There’s great access to the engines from two openings in the cockpit sole. I was frankly amazed with all the space aft of the engines where the steering hook-up and generator are located. There is also great access to the rudderposts and steering cables through the opening in the floor of the garage deck all the way aft. This provides great ventilation and comfort when working below. The use of sound deadening materials is evident in the quiet ride experienced when at speeds. We measured a steady 77 on the dBa meter for most of the range and got the highest reading of 83 at full throttle. The other contributing factor to the smooth ride and great performance is the well-designed hull. The hull of the Mediterranee’ 50 sports a deep-V in the bow with hard chines that cut down on spray. Further aft there are flat sections that help to stabilize the ride while the propellers are also housed in Prop pockets. All of this factors in for a uniquely smooth and stabile vessel that can take plenty of seas while still providing you with the best that luxury has to offer. Topside Layout The layout on deck is open and practical. I love the simplistic nature of European design and this boat speaks style and functionality. Back aft we find a large swim platform that makes getting onboard from the dock or tender easy. The boat also features a hydraulic passerelle, which features one button operation and is lighted for nighttime use. And when it comes to docking the Mediterranee’ 50 convenient features such as stern winches and a unique helm design allow the driver to quickly tend to lines when docking. This boat might be large but with all of the great features it’s a breeze to handle with two people. Located further aft is the garage where you can store a large inflatable or jet boat. It features convenient rollers and an electric winch to help retrieve the boat built into the bulkhead. The top of the garage also pulls double duty as a large sun pad for lounging. The Cockpit To port in the cockpit is a wet bar and electric grill. At first I wasn’t excited with an electric grill but after remembering how great that little grill I have at home is I started thinking how nice it would be to not have to worry about turning the propane on every time I wanted to cook. There is also a fridge and storage rack located just underneath the wet bar. Seating and Helm Over to starboard is a C-shaped seating arrangement and table, which comfortably seat six or seven adults. Forward of this area is the helm which is set up to accommodate four people. This is great for keeping everyone together and in the action while underway. To port there is a seat, which accommodates two. You will also find cup holders and plenty of dashboard storage. Over to starboard the two helm chairs are comfortable and are electronically controlled for the best possible line of site. They also feature a flip up bolster to make it comfortable when standing. Another great feature is the step that is located behind these two seats that when separated provides a quick way to get out on the side decks to tend lines when docking. The helm is well designed with good space for mounting additional gear. The Volvo controls are smooth, and the custom wood and leather Nardi steering wheel add a nice touch. The walkway up to the bow is wide and makes for easy passage. The railings are large stainless steel and provide great support. Also, the windshield features a wide large cap on top, which acts as a railing when moving forward. Up here there’s another large sun pad and wide open deck. You will also find a large anchor locker, windlass, fender storage and heavy-duty hardware throughout. Below Deck An aluminum sliding door provides the entrance to the cabin. Once below beautifully crafted American cherry cabinets and wall panels surround you. The door handles are covered in leather and the layout for the three staterooms and two heads creates a wide-open feel. As you enter the cabin you will find the two staterooms to port and starboard, one with two twins and the other with a full. Each provides plenty of storage and have large hanging lockers. Attached to the cabin and the port stateroom is the day-head which features an electric toilet and loads of cabinet space. One of the neat little features I found was the showerhead, which is built into the ceiling providing great coverage. GalleyThe galley is just to starboard and features loads of storage, Corian countertops and provides access to the ship’s electrical panel. Over to port is a U-shaped settee, which will seat five to six for meals, with the additional bench stools that are provided. Master Stateroom Just forward is the master stateroom with a double queen-sized bed and private head with shower. The cabin features beautiful woodwork around the berth and the cabin walls. There are two large hanging lockers with shelves, two portholes for fresh air, and a stereo with CD player for relaxation. Performance and Handling The seas were pretty flat when we took the 50 out for our test ride. She had a full tank of fuel and ¾ tank of water on board. We got her up to 40 mph and I’m sure she would push close to 45 with less weight aboard. The Volvo D12 engines provided smooth acceleration and excellent performance. This is truly a great weekend cruiser for the family. It can also be a great-extended cruiser for smaller couples, and affords plenty of storage for all of your gear and toys. The hull provided a solid ride and with the unique hull design you’re sure to feel safe and secure when traveling in seas. While the cruiser market here in the states is a little old fashioned, the unconventional lines and traditional quality Italian craftsmanship is a welcome import that is sure to find its way into your family.
