The Azimut 40
Azimut Yachts is an Italian yacht building company based in Viareggio. The company started with a line of sailing yachts. They then expanded into the construction of large luxury yachts, and began producing fibreglass boats at the Amerglass shipyard, a modern Dutch shipyard. The company grew, and began selling sailing yachts, motor cruisers and finally motoryachts from various manufacturers including; British Powles and Westerly. The company now owns Benetti, another luxury boat building company.
The Azimut 40 Ship Model
The materials used in the construction of the MS Achille Lauro model are carefully hand-picked and prepared. The model is constructed using the plank-on-frame construction method. The finishing touches are made with polished metal fittings and hand-stitched leather covers. The Azimut 40 ship model is one of our manufacturer’s majestic ships. It is one of the new models in our catalogue. It is also important to know that all the models are ready to be displayed and are supplied with a wooden base and a brass nameplate.
Our manufacturers are made up of a highly skilled and experienced team of more than 30 craftsmen. They work from precise, original plans and carefully selected materials. The workshop covers all stages of model boat building, hull assembly, rope laying, sail cutting, part carving and wood varnishing. A first prototype is always created for validation before the final models are produced.
