Four new Azimut models – the Azimut Grande 35METRI, Azimut Grande 27METRI, Azimut S7 and Azimut 60 Fly – will be making their international debut at the autumn boat shows this year.
The Italian yacht-builder says all four yachts will have their world premieres at the Cannes Yachting Festival, to which the shipyard will be taking a fleet of 19 yachts. The yachts will then appear at the Genoa, Monaco and Ft Lauderdale shows.
The Azimut Grande 35METRI and Azimut Grande 27METRI are the latest additions to the yard’s Grande Collection. The use of carbon fibre on both models has made it possible to increase the onboard space while retaining “excellent levels of static and dynamic stability”, says Azimut.
On the Grande 27METRI, the result is a wide body with a full beam owner’s suite on the main deck and a lower deck with three or four cabins. The exteriors and the interior concept are designed by Stefano Righini, while the interior design is by Achille Salvagni, one of AD Collector’s top 100 designers and included in the A-List drawn up by Elle Decor.
The Grande 35METRI is the new flagship in the Collection. The yacht has a wide body with raised pilot house and sleek exteriors, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, an exceptionally sized sundeck and a pivoting balcony that extends out from the owner’s suite directly over the water. Like the Grande 27METRI, Stefano Righini designed the exterior and interior concept, while the interior design is by Achille Salvagni.
The Azimut S7 is the 21m model in Azimut Yachts’ sport collection. The use of carbon fibre in the superstructure and the pivoting platform has allowed Azimut to increase the volume of the boat while delivering excellent performance. It has four spacious cabins and a garage that can contain up to two water toys.
The exteriors of the Azimut S7 were designed by Stefano Righini and the interiors by Francesco Guida, working with the brand for the first time. The yard will be taking the Sportfly version to the Cannes show, but a Coupe version will also be available.
Stefano Righini also created the concept and designed the exteriors of the Azimut 60 Flybridge, giving it sleek, aggressively attractive lines, in addition to a remarkably sized flybridge. The yacht has full-height windows and various lounge areas that create islands of privacy which are unique on a model this size.
Achille Salvagni’s interiors combine three different varieties of wood with steel and brass. Owners can also choose between different style propositions created by Salvagni, which bring the sophisticated interior design language of larger yachts to this 60ft craft.
All four of these new models will be given their world debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival, scheduled for September 12-17, to which the shipyard will be taking a fleet of 19 yachts.
From September 21-26, the yard will be represented by a fleet of seven models under 72ft in length – including the Azimut 60 – at the Genoa Boat Show. On the Italian market, Azimut has decided to present its models over 72ft in length at Versilia Rendez-Vous in May next year. This is because the Genoa and Versilia shows are complementary, says Azimut, and increasingly serve two distinct markets in terms of their nature and positioning.
The Azimut Grande Collection will also be returning to the Monaco Yacht Show, to which it will be taking the Grande 35METRI and the Grande 30METRI, from September 27-30.
The last stop will be the Ft Lauderdale International Boat Show where, from November 1-5, the four new models will be given their debut on the American market.
Azimut says it is already making preparations for boot Düsseldorf early next year, where another two new models in the fleet will be presented.
