Internationally renowned yacht company – Azimut Yachts – is on track to deliver one of their most ambitious projects to date this year. Following the release of last year’s renderings, the Italian operation will unveil their first-ever triple deck yacht: the 38.2-metre Azimut Grande Trideck.
Designed by Alberto Mancini, the yacht’s exterior styling and concept will be defined by a raised cockpit and additional outdoor viewing areas, which includes a raised deck on the stern that offers a 360-degree panoramic outlook and allows for three new zones: the Private Patio, Sea View Terrace, and Beach Club.
Moving onto the interior, you’ll find creative design from Achille Salvagni, who has eschewed the traditional dining area on the main deck to transform the entire area into an informal lounge. The dining area has instead been moved to the upper deck, with capacity for 10 guests and six crew.
Naval architect Pierluigi Ausonio was given full reign of the sub-300GT semi-planing hull design to optimise the ship for maximum efficiency through a number of technological advancements. The double chine hull causes a reduction in drag and maintains improved stability, while the upper range engine option at 2600 mHP is capable of a maximum speed up to 23/24 knots, and a cruising speed of up to 20/21 knots.
As for materials, the entire yacht has been constructed in carbon fibre with epoxy resin and vinylester to reduce overall weight and improve speed, range, as well as fuel efficiency.
If you’re looking for a price tag, you’ll be looking for awhile. Azimut Yachts have yet to confirm a dollar figure to the public, but the Azimut Grande Trideck is expected to easily set you back millions.
