86S — By Capt. Ken Kreisler

A Vision Realized
ever a boat was meant for a red hull, it is the Azimut 86S. And
from any angle, whether forward (previous image), from the aft deck
(above), or amidships (next image), she’s all about excitement
To showcase its Prestige line of motoryachts and express cruisers, French boatbuilder Jeanneau welcomes select guests to its impressive factory in Les Herbiers in western France. Prospective boat buyers, dealers, and a few lucky journalists got a glimpse of the entire boatbuilding process from the design and engineering studios to the yard where the boats are loaded for truck delivery. Oh and there was a really nice lunch with a little champagne as well!
