Azimut has revealed a new model called Grande 30M, with delivery on the first hull anticipated for 2025. Bridging the gap between the Grande 26M and 36M, the 30-metre model was first announced by head of product design Federico Lantero at this year's Cannes Yachting Festival.
Grande 30M will feature Azimut's "Deck2Deck Terrace" and "Infinity Skydeck" as seen in previous series. Exteriors are by long-standing collaborator Alberto Mancini.
Built extensively with carbon fibre and an "innovative" POD propulsion system, the Grande 30M is also classed as one of Azimut's "Low Emission Yachts", which "guarantee a reduction in consumption" and C02 emissions of 20 to 30 per cent, compared to models of similar size.
Interiors are courtesy of m2atelier, marking the shipyard's first collaboration with the Milanese design studio. Styled after different "architectural language[s]... from residential to contemporary art," initial renderings reveal a pared-back colour proposal of greys, creams and light woods. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a glass-panelled internal staircase allow living spaces to be airy and filled with natural light.
While renderings have yet to be revealed, the Infinity Skydeck has evolved from semi to fully walkaround. The upper deck runs flush from stern to bow, while full-height "disappearing" windows create an open-air veranda that connects the large aft lounge with the forward-facing infinity pool. Described as a "real terrace over the sea", the Deck2Deck Terrace is created by raising the teak hatch of the garage, becoming both a continuation of the cockpit and an extension of the transom.
According to BOATPro, Azimut currently has 19 units in the Grande line currently under construction.Read More/Magellano 60: On board Azimut's latest family model
