The Verve 40 is powered by triple Mercury Verado 350 HP outboards. This power package gives it top-end performance of just over 50 MPH and a cruising speed of just over 40. Joystick maneuvering with Mercury’s Skyhook dynamic positioning feature is available so the Verve will be noticed not only for its elegant styling, but also for your maneuvering in tight quarters. Because swimming off the back of an outboard-driven boat is not ideal, Azimut also added a side gate. Not just an opening in the hull, this port gate folds down and out to make a swim platform. In a wide slip, the gate can also be used for easier access for those who may be less mobile. Azimut isn’t sure exactly what to call this boat primarily because it may be the first in a new class. It could be a weekender, a partying day cruiser, or even a tender to a superyacht. Company executives did however, choose an appropriate name: “Verve”
The angled dash has a carbon fiber finish and houses twin Raymarine Platinum Package MFDs. A leather-covered wheel is just ahead of the middle seat of the three bucket chairs. Throttles are to the right of the wheel and the joystick is just outboard of that. The bow thruster stick is to the left. LED lighting and an overhead hatch provide lots of light and the compass is at eye level, so it’s easy to see while scanning the horizon. Arm rests and a teak foot-brace make getting in and out of the seats easy. A lower, aft-facing bench seat tucks up just behind the three helm chairs. It can be moved aft on a recessed cockpit sole rail to join the table and the L-shaped settee, forming a dinette in the starboard corner. The table can also be lowered to make the whole area into a sunpad or playpen. An outdoor galley is split into two modules with the sink, icemaker, and teak cutting board to port, and an electric grill and 44-quart refrigerator to starboard. An optional wine cooler may be tucked under the helm seat base. In all, 11 people may be seated in the cockpit and at the helm. With larger crowds onboard, passengers can migrate forward to the double sunpad plus convertible seating for six more at the bow. A party for nearly 20, anyone? The interior is as sophisticated as any of the Italian builder’s models. Enhanced aesthetics and a high level of fit and finish greet you when you come inside–and there really is an inside, unlike on many walkaround boats, which try to shoehorn in accommodations that may never be used. The owner’s cabin has a sliding and lockable door, standing headroom and a queen sized walk-around berth. A fully-enclosed head and 66 gallons of freshwater make weekending a possibility. The saloon has a cozy dinette with a hi/lo table that converts to a double bed for guests. The straight-line full galley to port will please the onboard chef with its two-burner ceramic stove, a convection oven, a large sink and a 68-quart refrigerator. A flat-screen television hangs just over the sink, facing the settee.
