In the waters of the beautiful Bagni Misteriosi Azimut stuns with the new Seadeck 6 at the Milan Design Week

This isn’t the first time Azimut has participated in the Milan Design Week, but the previous displays in the frenetic circuit of non-boat show events, after today, seem to only be practice leading up to the Bagni Misteriosi, located in the Lombard capital. Already an esoteric space in of itself, designed in 1939 by Engineer Secchi in an empty space surrounded by inhabited buildings, after years being abandoned and a recent restoration, the Bagni Misteriosi are now an outdoor water complex, with a 50 metre, semi-circular pool.


In the crystal clear waters, reached, unexpectedly, by going through the Teatro Franco Parenti, Azimut literally landed, by lowering the new Seadeck 6 from the sky. Visitors, after walking through an evocative and enclosed low-light display where Michele De Lucchi and AMDL Circle share the sustainable side of this hybrid 17.5 metre yacht, step out into the light to find a boat anchored in the heart of Milan.

The first model of a new series designed by Alberto Mancini, which already has another two vessels planned, is an example of knowledgeable, gentler and greener yachting. Thanks to its hybrid engines, emissions are reduced by 40%, as is consumption, this is also thanks to the increased lightness of the structure, made in recycled PET (in place of more traditional PVC) and partially laminated in carbon fibre. The coverings are equally sustainable: an Econyl carpet made from recycled fishing net (which can be infinitely regenerated) and exterior flooring in MarineCork in place of traditional teak.

The interior, designed by Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez, completely revises the traditional layout, starting with the stern – the Fun Island – a living space on the water’s edge that expands thanks to a mobile platform and two collapsible sides. The interior includes the command console, a dining and socialising area with open kitchen, and, on the lower deck, three cabins with two bathrooms, along with one for the crew, and other facilities.

Everything is light and luminous, using natural, sustainable, recycled and recyclable materials, softened by knowledgeable shaping of both solar and artificial lighting. Work based on subtraction resulting, however, even more full in the end, as it is focused on the wellbeing and comfort of the people on board.
