The new model is the builder’s first tri-deck yacht and biggest boat to date, described as “three decks plus one” due to an “extra deck” at the stern serving as a “sea view terrace”.
The extra deck will offer 30sqm of additional exterior space and is described by Azimut as a “floating aft deck” that is “suspended in the air”. It includes a large C-shaped sofa arrangement overlooking the water.
This terrace, along with the three traditional aft decks, results in a line of “cascading terraces” leading from the sundeck down to the water’s edge.
Designed by Alberto Mancini, the Azimut Grande Trideck features interiors by Achille Salvagni and naval architecture penned by Pierluigi Ausonio in collaboration with the Benetti Research and Development Department.
Designed for a “contemporary owner” for ultimate flexibility, the yacht features a “revolutionary layout” for a less formal lifestyle on board.
The sub 300GT interior can be arranged in various configurations for a maximum of six guest cabins comprising a main deck full beam owner’s suite, four guest suites on the lower deck and a sixth VIP on the upper deck.
Elsewhere, the yacht boasts a number of al fresco spaces overlooking the sea, including a sunbathing area on the sundeck, the main outdoor dining area on the upper deck and the beach area aft.
Power comes from a pair of MTU 2400 2600hp engines for a top speed of 24 knots, a range of 700 nautical miles at 19 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.
