When first introduced in 1996 the Azimut Sea Jet 70 set new standards in this size category.  It was a very well received yacht and its not hard to see why.  The layout features 4 guest cabins each with its own ensuite head and shower.  Plus the layout provides for a full beam aft private master!  Up forward in bow area is an access to the separate crew quarters that has two berths and head.  Many appreciate the exquiste wall to wall high gloss cherry wood and the abundant marble flooring. 

This one is a rare very well kept 70' Azimut Seajet with some significant improvements and great ownership history.  She has had only three owners!  The yacht now also benefits from being kept in fresh water since about 2000 when not being used.  Her second owner brought this lovely Azimut up from Florida in about the year 2000.  This owner kept this boat in fresh water on Lake Washington until 2014 when the current owner purchased her from the now Listing Agent.  The current owner has kept her undercover in fresh water here on Lake Union.

So to a potential buyer here is the opportunity to buy a freshwater kept boat since year 2000 when not being used.  While this is a 1998, her low hours 1,550hrs, freshwater moorage and an ownership history who has added upgrades everywhere make this the best 70 Azimut on the West Coast.

The Sea Jet was designed to carry a large Jet Ski or small yacht tender in a stern accessed "garage" in the center of the transom.  It features a large hinged door that opens the garage area up for storage of either item.   There are two Kayaks stored in the garage currently that go with vessel. 

This is one of the more popular 4 stateroom + crew designs with ensuite heads and showers layouts on market today. There's a VIP, and two twin bed guest staterooms forward, all with private heads with showers. The master, has a separate stairway down from the salon, aft. The cal-deck, salon, galley and dinette are all on one level, the main deck.  In all there are five Vacuflush heads, five stall showers including the forward crew quarters. There are too many upgrades and improvements to mention here (see the full specs). This owner and the prior has made custom upgrades to the electrical system operations and electronics of this vessel.

Main deck

There are stairs that go up either side from the swim platform and lead to the roomy covered Cal-deck located here is a long settee facing forward with a 6' teak dining table and nice overhead lighting.  You enter the salon thru double stainless steel framed sliding doors. There are two large curved settees facing one another, one port, one starboard positioned to take full advantage of the large salon windows. There is a salon ice maker just inside to port for parties. Forward and to starboard is the galley with full compliment of apartment sized appliances.  There is a custom storage pantry designed by the prior owner just forward giving much better galley storage than the original design.  Located port of the galley is open staircase leads to the bridge. Forward of this staircase and on the port is a large dinette with custom dinette table large enough for 6-8 to dine.  Located just underneath the stairs to the bridge is a pop up motorized storage system for the ships fine China.  Moving a little forward and to starboard there is a complete pocket lower helm with instrumentation.


The VIP quarters are accessed from stairs leading to the forward area.   The VIP with island queen berth is the most forward guest cabin with plenty of storage.  It features a personal settee to starboard and private head with marble Vanity and separate stall shower and Vacu-flush toilet.  

Aft of the VIP and located on the port side there is another guest stateroom with two twin berths and it also has its own guest head with Vacu-flush toilet, vanity and stall shower.

Directly across the companionway we find the starboard guest cabin with ensuite head and shower with another Vacu-flush and corner vanity.  The starboard guest cabin features an upper and lower berth and private head with shower stall.  It also doubles as a laundry room as the washer and dryer are located here.  

The master benefits from having it's own private entrance and being full beam.  It is accessed from the main salon located aft to starboard.   This is truly a master stateroom and has a kingsize berth on center with mirrored vanity to port and a private double settee to starboard. The master benefits from having a curved bulkhead in which a curved 55" inch HD Samsung TV is mounted.  The curve of the TV and the Samsung soundbar matches the wall and looks fantastic.  So it is quite an impressive audio & video delight for those viewing it in the Master stateroom.  The master head has a huge marble vanity with dual double sinks, Vacu-flush head and stall shower.

There are crew quarters forward, accessed from the foredeck thru a large hatch. There are 2 bunks, head and shower.


The galley is located starboard, forward of the main salon. There is an outside door that leads direct to the galley for easier provisioning. This Azimut has a much needed custom pantry just forward of the galley. The counters are marble, as is the deck, and there are double polished stainless steel sinks at the apex in the aft corner. There is a full size Bosch stainless steel covered dishwasher located right next to the galley sinks.  Under counter storage for pots and pans right of the sinks. Forward there is a 4 Gaggenau 4-burner Halogen cooktop with separate full size Miele oven under.  Above the cooktop is a GE stainless steel microwave oven. Left of the range and cooktop is a 7' Euro style refer from Liebherr with the top half refer and lower half, freezer drawers.   Galley has the ability with a switch to be completely cordoned from the salon with a high low separation wall.

Mechanical & Engine Details

The engine room is entered from a full height door from the port walk-around side deck. A ladder leads down to the stand-up engine room. There are block heaters for both engines to help with easy start ups and smoke reduction.  The generators are forward in the engine room in enclosed sound shields.  Aft of the port engine is the Hydraulic reservoir for the Naiad Stabilizers.

Of note the original bow thruster was a 24 Volt approximately 110kg thrust motor.  Owner had Yacht Services here in Seattle in 2014 upgrade it to a 24volt 220kgf model 22024 thrust motor.  Doing so also required using a bigger bow thruster tube.  Additionally the batteries MasterVolt "slim" were both upgraded to AGM and a new battery charger Charles 24v 40amp devoted only for these batteries was installed as well.   The batteries for the bow thruster have their own devoted 12 volt digital monitor system also installed new 2014.

A great feature of the Azimut 70 Sea jet, are the walk-around side decks and roomy aft, Cal-deck. The Cal-deck is covered all the way to the aft settee and is well lit. There are large warping winches port and starboard on the Cal-deck. There is a coldplate refer/freezer on both sides of the Cal deck here located next to the salon entrance double doors. Crew quarters are located through a bow foredeck hatch with two bunks, head and shower.

Upper Helm Bridge
The flying bridge is accessed from inside by an open stairway leading up to port from forward of the salon. The entire upper bridge aft to the radar arch got a new custom specified and designed by the owner Stamoid Canvas enclosure in 2015. There is a double seat helm to starboard with full compliment of electronics (see above). Aft of the bridge helm is a large, kingsize, sun pad (could be an extra berth). Across from the lounge is a curved table and curved settee for six.  When the owner had the custom canvas complete enclosure made they had the windows follow the curve of the settee as well.  The result is a very expansive upper deck area.  Forward of this settee to port is the cabinet for BBQ station. Additionally there is a also an additional refrigerator here.  The standard arrangement was for one BBQ but the owner has added a 2nd BBQ custom.

The tender is a 15' Novurania tender with 50hp Honda 4-stroke that is carried on the bridge, aft and lifted by a 1000# Davit. The Sea jet designed "garage" houses kayaks and paddles.
