Azzura, designed by Doug Peterson and built by the Dutch shipyard Jongert, is

a unique yacht which represents a stunning example of good design, full of

innovative features and ideas. It's no wonder that this vessel is recognized so

widely in the yachting world. From concept to present day ownership, Azzura

has been in the hands of owners, whose understanding and appreciation of the

flexibility of everything that has been crafted into this stunning yacht, from her

tall cutter rig, slim hull, attractive and functional freeboard, cavernous garage, ease of sailing to

internal and external comfort, not forgetting the unique folding keel, allowing

entry to marinas and anchorages of which other vessels of this size may only dream.

Go to for more.


On deck the anchor fits snugly into the stem ensuring the foredeck remains

uncluttered, winches are sensibly laid out around the base of the mast with

adequate turning blocks for halyards and hoisting lines. The genoa and staysail

halyards have adjustable hydraulic rams to increase or reduce halyard tension

whilst under sail. The in mast furling main is a breeze to set or furl in from the

helm position utilising intelligently laid out controls. The headsails and boom

can all be safely controlled from the aft deck area far from the owner guest

areas, ensuring safety at all times. All three sails are new from the Doyle loft in

November 2021. From the rear deck the huge garage can be entered via the

deck hatch. The 4.2m, 14' tender with 50hp outboard is swallowed up, along

with the Bauer dive compressor, dive bottles, dive gear, several paddle

boards, kayaks, water ski's, wake board, towable toys, a paraphernalia of other

service maintenance items, large tool box and shore power unit leaving a

substantial amount of space for a host of other items should you require. The

garage door can be lowered to provide a large bathing platform that yachts

twice the size would be proud of. The access ladder from the aft deck and the

bathing ladder are neatly stowed in the garage too.


Back at the helm station, seating is laid out around the helm console, bristling

with instruments set up to provide all the information an astute sailor needs. There is a 

B&G  7" touch screen multifunctional chart-plotter along with more components. At the helm

the main engine can be started, stopped, boom raised and lowered, backstay

tension adjusted, bow and stern thrusters deployed and operated and autopilot controlled.

Moving forward into the wheelhouse, with its excellent all-round

view, two circles of practical contoured seating wrap around a

pair of tables on either side of the central walkway. This layout provides

seating for at least eight guests with the starboard table also having an additional

two-fold away seats that increase this capacity. Forward of this are the interior

helm and navigation stations with comfortable seating that make passage making

in inclement weather conditions so much safer and more bearable. Again, there is

a plethora of instrumentation and twin 19 inch B and G Zeus3 multifunctional touch

screen displays supplemented by a further stand-alone PC based Navigational

19" Screen on the starboard side. The vessel can be steered, utilising the

joystick Segatron Autopilot from within the wheelhouse along with thruster deployment control. Engine

Stop, Start throttle controls along with the keel, raising lowering switches are also situated in this area.


Entering, the fully air conditioned, accommodation via an elegant curved

wooden motorised hatch, you make your way down the companionway steps to

the light and airy main saloon, which is timelessly finished out in modern

fabrics, twin sofas, arm chair and exquisite cabinetry. The glassware Royal

Doulton bone china is housed in a perfectly formed cabinet that also houses the

Television, which can be neatly stowed away when not in use. The saloon can also be

used as an indoor dining area with a well-crafted expandable dining table

situated to port with wrap around seating. Neatly hidden away is the bar, sink,

ice maker small drinks fridge. The galley crew quarters are separated by a

sensor controlled, pneumatic activated door. The galley is fully fitted out with

Miele stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier.

Corian worktops provide space for food preparation along with two upright

fridges, two upright freezers, a single underfloor freezer and deep bilge bin

system for all food storage. The galley is fitted with a twin basin, one of which

houses the Insinkerator and the other a separate Quooker brand hot tap for instant hot

water. There are plenty of cupboards to house all the necessary galley

essentials. To the port side is the crew seating and system control panel. Further

forward are crew quarters consisting of two double bunk cabins, each with

ensuite shower, toilet and sink.


Leading aft, down a flight of steps from the main saloon, takes you into the

owner guest area along with the engine room entry point. From the

passageway there are two guest cabins each with two full size single beds, each

cabin having their own ensuite facilities. Further aft is situated the master cabin.


Again, wonderfully fitted out with a queen size double bed, drawers, storage

underneath, in the centre, twin seater couch to starboard, bookshelf, twin double

wardrobes and two other cupboard units. To port is the spacious ensuite with

large shower, with seat, vanity unit toilet.

Last major refit on Azzura was carried out at Vitters Shipyard in 2018 and 2019, too many items

serviced, repaired, replaced to list. Please enquire with Broker (Dana Davidson).

PROPULSION, Main Engine and Systems

Mercedes MTU 183 V10 AA91 OM423, Non turbo 345 HP / 254kW at 2300rpm, REBUILT AT VITTERS 2019
Cruising speed at 1850rpm / 8.5 knots
Cruising range at 25L per hr / Minimum 1734nm
Max speed at 2300rpm / 12 knots
Gearbox is a ZF IRM310A
Primary Fuel Filtration all engines have Racor Manifold system, thus 3 sets of filters.

UNIQUE ATTRIBUTE: A Four Bladed Fixed propellor drives a shaft mounted generator that allows the boat, whilst sailing, to completely power the vessels lower voltage electrical systems. From the BVI's to Newport, the shaft mounted generator allowed the boat to charge its batteries and keep refrigerators and systems completely charged, without the usage of the large ships generators. 

Two Northern Lights generators. Both new 2019.


Jongert Uniquely Designed External Folding Keel (no loss of internal space). The keel folds and becomes flat allowing the yacht access to shallow areas, 8 feet; then, when she is extended to her full depth in deep water, she sails nearly as well as a racing yacht.

Draft - Fully Down - 4.3m

           Fully Retracted - 2.3m
