Italy’s Azimut Yachts will be presenting a fleet of 18 yachts at the Cannes Yachting Festival this year, including three new models making their world debut – the Azimut S6, Azimut Grande 25 Metri and Azimut Grande 32 Metri.
Accompanying the three new models will be 15 more yachts from all the brand’s five Collections (Atlantis, Magellano, S, Flybridge and Grande), ranging from the smallest Azimut Atlantis 34, to the shipyard’s flagship, the award-winning Azimut Grande 35 Metri, which, since its launch, has already sold 10 units.
The Azimut S6 is the yard’s latest addition to its S Collection. It is a pure coupé with sporty DNA, offering unprecedented levels of efficiency obtained with the help of the three IPS propulsion units and Carbon Tech. The exteriors are designed by Stefano Righini, who has further accentuated the glazed surfaces in the hull.
The interiors – by Francesco Guida, for whom this is his second project with the shipyard – are a modern and discrete sense of elegance bathed in warm colourways.
The Grande Collection, the most recently introduced collection of Azimut superyachts, has also been joined by two new models. The first, the Azimut Grande 25 Metri, has a Carbon Tech superstructure, roll-bar, hard top and transom.
For the interiors, designer Achille Salvagni offers a non-conventional take on the living area by abandoning the typical distinction between sofa and dining area, and creating one big space on the main deck, which can be transformed into a dining area when needed by raising a recessed table.
Two propulsion solutions are available – one with a pair of 1,650hp MAN engines and the other with two 1,800hp MAN units, for a top speed of 29kt and a cruising speed of 26kt.
The second novelty in the Collection, the Azimut Grande 32 Metri, is the epitome of avant-garde in every aspect, with multiple unprecedented solutions. The defining features of the model are the big, airy, interior and exterior spaces.
Outdoors, designer Stefano Righini provides guests not only with a big beach club in the stern, but also a fly deck offering 70sq m of space split into three distinct areas: a dining area, a central living space, and a relaxation area in the bow with a hydromassage tub, which can become a second lounge area at the owner’s request.
The airiness of the outside spaces is complemented by the luminosity of the interiors designed by Achille Salvagni. The full-beam owner’s suite, for example, is flooded with light through full-height glazed surfaces on both sides.
Propulsion is provided by two 2,200mHP MTU engines, driving the yacht to a top speed of 26.5kt.
Azimut Yachts will be at the Cannes Yachting Festival from September 11-16 on Stand Palais 096.
