by 30 September 2010

World premier for Sirena Marine at the 50th Salone Nautico Internazionale (International Boat Show), Genoa, Italy. Sirena Marina is the only non-Italian partner of the Azimut Benetti Group, and for the first time it is presenting its Azuree range of yachts. The Azuree 33 is a revolutionary boat for four people, with the wide beam proven by racing yachts, a spacious cockpit, meticulously designed interiors, and a high-performance keel. It will undoubtedly be a popular entrance-level yacht for sailing.
The first model, Azuree 40, was presented at the Eurasia Boat Show in Istanbul in February 2010, where it obtained considerable success and received many orders. Azuree 40 received a nomination for the European Yacht of the Year award in the Performance Cruiser category.

During a series of regattas held in Turkey during summer 2010, Azuree 40 was raced in a team featuring Paolo Semeraro, and led by Stig Westergaard who helmed the Azuree 40 in various conditions, pushing the yacht to the limits. He says, "I really appreciated the Azuree 40. It is exactly what a contemporary sailor wants for the family, because it is the perfect combination of sailing efficiency and comfort. It is far more spacious than normal production yachts, and it sails faster than boats with the same levels of comfort."
The objective for Azuree is to become a global brand in the yachting sector, by means of fine performance and comfort on board. This combination is attained primarily by means of the cutting-edge keel design. Azuree 40 and Azuree 33 were developed by a team of considerable experience who have worked at top levels in the international field, primarily Giovanni Ceccarelli, who has won 11 trophies and who led the Mascalzone Latino America's Cup design team in 2003, and +39 in 2007.
