Chapinav sports just about every possible upgrade that Azimut offers for this model, including some they don't.
She has a beautiful, elegantly simple and relaxing interior, with walnut satin cabinetry and neutral colored soft goods, which are complemented by an open plan layout and a large expanse of windows. This is a yacht that compels you to slow down and enjoy every minute spent onboard.

The guest accommodation comprises of 4 large cabins, all with en suite bathrooms, including a huge full beam master cabin and forward VIP.

The exterior decks are where Chapinav really comes to life. A spacious main deck aft provides a comfortable space to eat and drink in the fresh air. Forward from this deck we see a huge sun pad that can easily accommodate 4 dedicated sun lovers.

Chapinav saves one of her biggest surprises for the Flybridge. Comparable in size to a much larger yacht, the Flybridge is an ideal space for everything from sunbathing to BBQs to fine dining to cocktail hours. With multiple seating areas, a bar, and retractable sun shades, Chapinav truly has something for everyone.

Despite all these features and upgrades, Chapinav is for sale at a fraction of her replacement cost.

Owner's Cabin

This luxurious master cabin is full beam and features some of the largest hull side windows available from any manufacturer in this size range. These “portholes” flood the cabin with natural light and afford a profound connection with the seas beyond.

The room flows smotthly around a central island queen size bed, and the additions of a sofa on the starboard side and vanity desk with stool to port, make this room feel like a true suite. There is a large flat screen TV, beverage refrigerator, huge cedar lined walk-in closet and beautiful en suite bathroom with double vanity, large shower and marble floors.

Apple TV and SAT TV can be controlled from this cabin via integrated iPads, and access to SAT phones and high speed internet enables this area to be used as a floating office when necessary.

VIP Cabin

Stunning finishing touches adorn the VIP cabin, which offers guests a relaxing and spacious getaway. The VIP cabin sports a walnut framed queen size bed with bedside lamps for evening reading. Oversized portholes and a skylight welcome in natural light during the day. The generous en suite bathroom is equipped with an oversized shower and an elegant marble counter top/ vanity sink. Under-bed storage and large hanging closets provide plenty of storage, and leave little doubt that this VIP cabin is suitable for a second master.

Mid Ships Cabins

The two spacious mid ships guest cabins are outfitted with a plush double berth to port, and twin beds to starboard including an additional fold down bunk. Bedside tables with sconce lighting, under bed storage, cedar lined hanging closets, and large flat screen TV's with access to SAT & Apple TV systems are located in both cabins. Both cabins have their own en suite bathrooms with large vanity mirrors and full showers.

Exterior Main Deck

The main deck aft has a built-in sofa and satin-varnished teak table that can seat 8 guests comfortably. A side cabinet holds a sink and refrigerated drawers.

From this deck there is access up to the flybridge, and down to the swim platform via the Euro Transom. A hydraulic passarelle concealed under the port side stairs can be remotely operated for convenient Med-Mooring. The large teak aft swim platform can be hydraulically lowered into the water, adding an exciting and versatile dimension to a yacht that is perfect for staging all kinds of water sports, or simply relaxing in a partially submerged deck chair.

Forwards on the bow is an oversized sun pad with back rests, cup holders and a concealed bimini top that can be raised and lowered as desired for occasional shade.


The Flybridge is where Chapinav distinguishes herself, providing guests a resort-like experience combined with optimal functionality.

This enormous deck, with teak flooring throughout, is much larger than those found with other manufacturers in the same size range. Three separate living areas cater to any sized party, and an optional davit facilitates extra tender/jet ski storage.

Forwards on the starboard side is a repeater helm station with an exterior/weather proof version of all the electronics seen down below. Opposite the upper helm is the forward sun pad.

Aft on the port side is a marble topped bar unique to this yacht, with 2 fixed stools, large sink, refrigerator & ice maker. There is an upgraded electric BBQ grill stand aft of the "U" shaped seating area, found only on the Chapinav.

Opposite the bar is the deep “U” shaped sofa with satin-varnished dining table that can comfortably seat 8 to 10 guests. Above the bar and dining table is the fixed fiberglass bimini top with a beautiful center retractable canvas section, allowing guests to take in the sun, or dine under the stars.

To complete this enormous and already well equipped deck, aft is a custom made seating area that faces aft, and gives you a perfect vantage point to watch the sun go down over the horizon.


A spacious crew cabin is situated in an ideal location aft in the lazarette, here crew can respond quickly to alarms, calls, etc. without disturbing guests.
