Azimut launches first Grande 26 Metri
The Italian shipyard has launched the Grande 26 Metri ahead of the model’s world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival.
The Azimut Grande 26 Metri in Viareggio
Azimut has launched the first Grande 26 Metri, which will make its debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival (September 6-11) along with the Grande 36 Metri and the Magellano 30 Metri. Launched in Viareggio, the 26.1m (85ft 7in) superyacht features exterior styling by Alberto Mancini and interiors by Achille Salvagni, like other recent Grande models.
Its signature feature is the aft Deck2Deck™ terrace inspired by the brand’s flagship Grande Trideck. The opening transom comes all the way up to lie flush with the aft edge of the main deck and expands the cockpit, which can be used either as a lounge space or a dining area with a walkaround table. The convertible furniture enables multiple layout, all with clear views of the horizon. Other features include a main-deck owner’s suite with full-height windows.
The Grande 26 Metri is one of Azimut’s new generation of Low Emission Yachts and the first in any category to be fitted with the new 4600 Pod propulsion system developed by ZF. Innovative, high-efficiency propulsion systems and a superstructure weighing 30 per cent less, due to the extensive use of carbon-fibre, results in a 20 per cent less fuel consumption than boats of a similar size, according to Azimut.
Azimut is represented in Hong Kong, Macau, Guangdong, Taiwan and Singapore by Marine Italia.
