Azimut Lines Up Cannes Premieres
Azimut will stage the worldwide premieres of its flagship Grande Trideck, a new Magellano and two Flybridge models, while sister company Benetti will debut the Motopanfilo 37M.
Azimut will stage four world premieres at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival, while Benetti will unveil the Motopanfilo 37M alongside the show debut of the hugely successful Oasis 40M.
Azimut’s display will be spearheaded by its flagship Grande Trideck, a 38m superyacht with an exterior design by Alberto Mancini, interiors by Achille Salvagni for the interiors and a second-generation D2P (Displacement to Planing) semi-planing hull by Pierluigi Ausonio.
The yacht’s signature feature is
The Azimut 68 and Azimut 53 are the brand’s other worldwide premieres. The 68 is the newest addition to the brand’s Flybridge Collection and features interiors by Salvagni and a dynamic exterior by Mancini, who also designed the exterior of the 53 launched this year and the 78 that debuted at Cannes in 2019.
The Azimut 53 (see Review in Issue 60) features Volvo’s IPS propulsion system, which reduces the size of the engine room and increases space for the lower-deck accommodation. The split-level interior starts with an aft galley before two steps lead to the saloon and helm station to starboard, while there are three guest cabins on the lower deck.
Azimut will also stage the European premiere of the Verve 47, which has a stepped hull by Michael Peters and can reach up to 50 knots with four 450mhp Mercury outboards.
Sister company Benetti will stage the worldwide premiere of the Motopanfilo 37M, which was inspired by Benetti’s Navette from the 1960s and the creative expression of those years. The external lines are a collaboration between the shipyard and designer Francesco Struglia, while Lazzarini Pickering Architetti developed the interiors. The sale of the first hull was announced in July.
The shipyard’s display will also include the Cannes debut of the Oasis 40M (see Review, Issue 57), which was premiered at the Genoa International Boat Show last October. Featuring external lines by the English studio RWD and interiors designed by New York studio Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture, the yacht is noted for its huge beach club and waterside pool, and has already sold at least 15 units.
Marine Italia represents Azimut in Hong Kong, Macau, Guangdong province, Taiwan and Singapore, and recently helped Benetti sell an Oasis 40M to Singapore, the sixth sale into Asia-Pacific.
The Italian builder has launched the second unit of its Grand Trideck, its new 38m flagship unveiled earlier this year..
