Azimut Yachts introduces new Azimut Grande 95RPH raised pilothouse motor yacht

Italian superyacht builder Azimut Yachts has introduced the new design for its latest Azimut Grande superyacht, the new Azimut Grande 95RPH.
Set to launch in the spring of 2014, the new yacht will feature an entirely new hull and new design. The raised pilothouse motor yacht is part of Azimut Yachts' Azimut Grande series, which currently includes Grande 100, Grande 105, Grande 116 and Grande 120SL models, though Azimut has started construction on the flagship in its Grande series, the Grande 140 superyacht.
With the concept and exterior styling by superyacht designer Stefano Righini, the new Azimut Grande 95RPH will stand out from her sisters with her raised pilothouse design. Judging from the first images released by Azimut Yachts, shown above, Righini has succeeded at blending in this extra half deck with the familial styling of the series.
The Azimut Grande 95 is sleek and sporty like her sisters, yet offers more interior space thanks to the raised pilothouse layout. She will accommodate 10 guests and owners in four lower deck en suite guest cabins and a forward main deck master suite. The master and main saloon benefit from natural light flowing into the large, floor-to-ceiling windows.
Interior design is by Studio Salvagni Architetti for Azimut Yachts, who counts many successful collaborations with the yacht builder, including the Azimut 80, Azimut 84 and Azimut 88.
The spacious flybridge hosts al fresco seating for 10, mini bar, sunbathing areas, and a Jacuzzi. At stern, the garage stows a four-metre tender. Powered by twin MTU 16V 2000 M84 engines, she will offer a maximum speed of 26.5 knots and cruise at 20 knots.
