Even though hull number one isn’t even in the water yet, that didn’t stop a Houston-based owner from falling in love with the Azimut Grande 38 Metri Trideck on paper. This owner has signed on for hull number five in the series.
Initially, this experienced cruiser was looking at buying either a new-build or brokerage megayacht. Additionally, he was weighing options in the 115- to 130-foot (35- to 40-meter) size range. The 125-foot (38.2-meter) LOA for the Azimut Grande 38 Metri Trideck fit that requirement. The overall modern styling, general layout, and ability to personalize the interior were attention-getters, too. Plus, “the client appreciated the dedicated beach club, massive sundeck, the bow dipping pool and seating, and side garage for tender and personal watercraft,” adds Bob Fritsky, MarineMax’s vice president of sales. (The owner is a longtime MarineMax customer as well.)
In terms of some of those amenities, the beach club is bigger than usual because of the dedicated garage. Furthermore, it leads out to an open-air transom area, termed the Private Patio by Azimut. Even though the sundeck is quite large, the main aft deck is as well. Azimut designed it as a raised area, similar to a mezzanine. The shipyard has a clever name for it, too: the Sea View Terrace, rimmed with glass bulwarks.
Although neither Azimut nor MarineMax have revealed the decor the owner wants, the megayacht will have five staterooms. The shipyard offers a six-stateroom version as another option. Either way, the staterooms and other relaxation areas should feel comfortable, considering the megayacht has a 26-foot (7.9-meter) beam.
Construction should conclude next spring, after which this Azimut Grande 38 Metri Trideck will head straight to the Bahamas, for delivery. The owner plans to put her to good use in the Bahamas as well, plus offer her for charter.
