Azzura was launched in 1998. Since new the same owner and same captain have been caring for Azzura with an open checkbook. After the summer season 2007, Azzura went back to the Jongert yard for a 10 year refit with the intention to essentially zero the clock. She emerged in August 2008 with brand new decks, new rigging, new paint, new generators…down to cleaning all the tanks, sand blasting and recoating them.


One of the most seductive qualities about Azzura is her sleek Doug Peterson line teamed up with the Jongert patented folding keel and hydraulic retracting coach roof. Beauty, comfort and flexible cruising are rolled into one!


The aft section contains three staterooms for owner and guests. The master stateroom is full-width aft with queen bed centerline, two double-opening full-length closets (one with shelves and drawers), and drawers beneath the bed. Centerline is the entertainment center with vanity and sofa to starboard. The ensuite bath is to port.


A centerline corridor leads forward to two identical staterooms port and starboard; they have twin beds with a bureau in between, full length locker, drawers and shelves with ensuite bath.


Before the stairs leading up to the raised salon is a foyer with a small office area with a desk and entry into the engine room which is located under the salon. Two locker on either side provide storage; one is a bona-fide wet locker.


The salon is bright and airy due to hatches above, port lights and portholes in the hull.  To port is a dining table which can be extended by leaves hidden in the center of the table, a savvy table design by Jongert. It is surrounded by a u-shaped settee, properly designed for maximum comfort. Two dining chairs round out the seating arrangement.  To the side of the dining area and at the base of the companionway is the bar featuring a refrigerator, icemaker and sink, nicely tucked away when not in use. To starboard is the lounge area with settee, a recliner, two chairs and table.  The entertainment center is centered on the forward wall; lovely cabinets flank either side, containing glassware and cutlery. This is a comfortable, practical, lively room.


Forward to port, a door activated electronically leads to the service area.  To port is a crew dinette; underneath the benches are the washer and dryer. To starboard is a large galley (See Galley List). Forward are two crew cabins with hanging locker, drawers and outboard shelves; each with ensuite head. To port is a cabin with over/under staggered bunks. To starboard the captain’s cabin has a lower bed which can be converted to a double and an upper single bed.


The interior is rich teak complemented by cream-colored ultra-suede and azure blue.  Floors are carpeted except for the galley which has a cork floor.  All rooms have individual temperature controls for the air-conditioning/heating system. Fresh air comes into the boat from 98’ (30m) up the mast for the air-conditioning/heating system and forced air ventilation. DC fans and natural ventilation are also an option. All hatches have sturdy wood-framed mosquito and blackout screens; all ports are opening featuring a wonderful detail—under each porthole an internal scupper system takes any stray water to the grey tank. Curtains provide privacy; A variety of lights from activity lights to overhead and courtesy lighting can set the mood.  Closets are cedar-lined with automatic lights.  Bathrooms are white Corian, including the floor, with teak and metal accents. Toilets are fresh-water. Custom, round Jongert showers, mirrored medicine cabinets and plenty of counter space at the sink complete this room.


The deck is a masterful arrangement of luxurious living and practical yacht operation.  Forward a Bruce anchor nestles into the stem of the hull. There is no on-deck hassle with the anchor. A large sail locker and crew access are forward.  The cockpit is another Jongert marvel.  The roof that covers the protected cockpit can hydraulically retract to half the size, thus letting sunlight pour in if desired.  This protected area houses the interior steering forward starboard and another station on the other side; visibility is superb as it is well above deck level.  Two tables port and starboard provide seating for 10. For parties of 6 one table can be used as two stools swing out from the inboard side.   Dining is a delight here, with or without a roof over your head.  The cockpit is well protected, extremely safe, and two steps lower than the steering cockpit farther aft which offers a clear view above the coach roof.   Aft of the cockpit, winches are grouped for easy out-of-the-way sail handling.  A large garage holds a 14’ dinghy (without covering the emergency tiller). The fold-out transom provides an enormous “beach” (11’ x 6.5’); a ladder leads into the water or steps lead to the deck.  A hydraulic passarelle telescopes out from the starboard side of the transom.

Azzura is the pinnacle of excellence. Doug Petersen designed, Jongert built, and with a refit at the mother yard in 2007, you can’t get any better than this.  Most famous for her extraordinarily shallow draft with the keel up and hydraulic retracting roof, this is one of the few 96’ yachts an owner can dock behind a house in Sarasota.  Jongert details are legendary: as an example, beneath each porthole is an indentation to collect stray water and an internal scupper system takes it to a grey water tank. Do yourself a favor: find out about this yacht.   Azzura is in unbelievable condition, ready to go anywhere immediately. NOT FOR SALE TO U.S. RESIDENTS WHILE IN U.S. WATERS.



Please inquire about the comprehensive list of work done during the refit at the Jongert yard.
