Azimut has two new megayacht models debuting next year. In addition, it’s creating them with two designers marking first-time collaborations with the brand. The yachts are the Azimut S10 (above) and Azimut Grande Magellano (below).
The Azimut S10 is part of the yard’s S Collection, a series with sporty styling and spirited speeds. Alberto Mancini of AM Yacht Design created her exterior and interior with Azimut. Mancini is well known, having worked with Mangusta, Otam, Baglietto, and more. He started his career in automotive design, too, bringing those influences into his yachts. The 92-foot (28-meter) S10 combines some expected looks and features with unexpected ones. For instance, she’s still sporty, but has multiple terrace-like levels flowing aft. Hidden steps take guests down to the beach club, to keep a clean look. Glass characterizes the stern railing as well.
Owners can outfit spaces outside and inside as they see fit. This includes the alfresco area just outside the saloon. Make it a sunning spot by day, then a party platform at night by removing the cushions. Alternately, install a hot tub. The Azimut S10 does offer, though, similar tones and textures for indoor and outdoor areas, for a thematic connection.
Speaking of tones and textures, carbon fiber remains visible on some surfaces. You’ll find it on the superstructure, where parts resemble fins. It also replaces stainless steel in the side rails.
While Azimut pledges that the S10 will have good speeds, it hasn’t disclosed them. Neither has it disclosed performance for the new Grande Magellano. Azimut further isn’t showing the profile for the Grande Magellano, just the interior above. Regardless, the 82-foot (25-meter) megayacht is the new series flagship. The Magellano series emphasizes long range and more traditional looks.
Styling and interior design comes from Vincenzo De Cotiis. He’s particularly known for his furniture design. In fact, he’s famous for mixing reclaimed materials with brand-new ones. He additionally favors open spaces, as seen in the saloon above.
The Grande Magellano shows off wall supports made of fiberglass, where the glass fibers are visible. These contrast with more customary materials like wood, brass, and mirrors. Brass, for example, is an insert throughout all interior surfaces. You’ll find flowing, even unexpected shapes, such as the irregular dining table. It mimics a naturally rugged shoreline.
Not everything is so unusual, though. Below decks, four staterooms, including the master, await.
We’ll have to await launch for more details. Next year, incidentally, marks Azimut’s 50th anniversary.
