Ninety-four feet (28 meters) of soft, sporty styling and luxury living inside. Azimut Yachts is finally revealing a thorough look at the Azimut Grande S10, a new megayacht model announced last year.
In fact, while Azimut revealed details about this project in April 2017, simultaneously with the Grande Magellano, it only released the hint of a profile. Essentially, it was a sketch. In addition, while the Italian builder indicated the yacht would have a good turn of speed, it didn’t provide specifics.
Now, however, we have those specifics, along with the first well-rounded looks. Performance-wise, the Azimut Grande S10 promises a top speed of 35 knots, given twin 2,600-hp MTUs. That suits her sportboat-style exterior, designed by Alberto Mancini of AM Yacht Design. Interestingly, even though her superstructure may remind you of a customary sport yacht, she actually incorporates a flying bridge. Mancini took additional styling cues from the automotive sector, as well as, surprisingly enough, classic sailing superyachts.
As for the interior design, the Azimut Grande S10 gets her luxurious living spaces from Francesco Guida. (If the name isn’t familiar, the designer has collaborated with a number of other Italian builders. These include ISA Yachts, Arcadia Yachts, and Cantiere delle Marche.) One of the nicest areas, sure to hold strong appeal, is the saloon. The sliding-glass doors between it and the main aft deck completely recess. While plenty of builders lay claim to having indoor-outdoor lounges, this really does look, and surely will feel, the part. Guida selected similar woods and other materials, as well as complementary colors, to keep the continuity.
Of course, buyers can select the woods, leathers, and fabrics they so wish, since the Azimut Grande S10 is semi-custom. Imagine the possibilities as you watch the video. Imagine, too, your friends and family aboard. Four staterooms accommodate your party, all situated below decks. The master cabin spans the full beam (nearly 21 feet, or 6.34 meters), with three guest staterooms forward.
