Azimut reveals new 44m flagship with 5 units already sold

22 March 2024 • Written by Katia Damborsky

Italian shipyard Azimut has added a new flagship to its Grande range in the form of a new 43.8-metre yacht, which has been revealed for the first time at the Palm Beach International Boat Show. CEO Marco Valle said the yard had already sold five units in the new line to existing Azimut owners, and described the line as a "new era for Azimut". 

The first unit of the four-deck 499GT series is set for delivery in time for the September 2026 boat show season.

Exteriors of the GRP build come from long-time Azimut collaborator Alberto Mancini, while interiors have been helmed by M2 Atelier.  The studio's partner Marco Bonelli described the design as "refined" with pure themes that "capture the essence of flowing water".

Features of the Grande 44M include a completely private 50-square-metre owner's deck with a forward-facing, glass-encased space that can be used as a dining area, media room or otherwise, making good use of the yacht's 8.6-metre beam. On the main deck aft, the yacht will have an infinity pool that creates what the yard is calling a "see-through dining area".

The Grande 44M is expected be powered by twin MAN engines, delivering a top speed of 17 knots. 

Construction will take place in Viareggio, with the moulds already taking shape. 

Azimut last revealed the Grande 30M to BOAT International. The first unit is scheduled for delivery in 2025 and will feature the shipyard's trademark "Deck2Deck Terrace" and "Infinity Skydeck".
