The AZIMUT GRANDE 38 TRI-DECK, flagship of the Grande series, is a 37.6m (123.3ft) yacht due for delivery by Azimut Benetti in November 2022. She presents a fantastic opportunity to own a brand new yacht without waiting for long build periods.
This yacht has ticked virtually every option box. Upgraded stabilisers, upgraded Gaggenau galley fittings, DJ console, karaoke and nightclub lighting on the sun deck, beach club rain shower, tender and toys including a slide - the list is endless. Her exterior styling is by Alberto Mancini, interiors are by Achille Salvagni Architetti and she has an innovative D2P (displacement to planning) hull designed by Pier Luigi Ausonio Naval Architecture. This features a double-chine hull and a wave-piercing bow that significantly improves fuel efficiency.
The sun deck has a fully equipped wet bar and BBQ forward, C-shaped sofa around a coffee table and a DJ console under the hardtop. There's plenty of versatile deck space aft for sun lounging or entertainment and glass guard rails deliver uninterrupted views. The upper deck has two large foredeck sunpads, one wrapped around a jacuzzi, and aft is open-air dining for 14 guests and sun lounge seating. The main deck aft presents a second open-air dining option with a fully equipped bar and wine fridge just inside the sliding glass doors, making it another great space for entertainment.
Another great feature is the raised sun lounge, a few steps up from the main deck aft, again with glass guard rails. From the main deck aft sidedecks lead forward to the foredeck sun lounge and steps aft lead down to a full-height beach club below the raised sun lounge with two L-shaped sofas around a coffee table, mini bar and dayhead. Bulwark cut-outs deliver 180-degree views and a fold-down transom creates a swim platform.
The main saloon has sofa seating and armchairs, an 85in TV on the forward bulkhead, incredible natural light through full-height windows and great views through bulwark cut-outs. There's also a dayhead off the main lobby. The formal dining area is in the sky lounge where there is C-shaped banquette around an table that rises for dining and lowers for coffee. Instead of a sixth guest cabin, this yacht has a private upper deck studio office with a desk and chairs, library and sofa.
She welcomes 10 guests in five cabins, including a full-beam owner's suite forward on the main deck with dressing room, lounge area and en suite with shower room. On the lower deck, two VIP cabins and two convertible cabins, all en suite, complete her family-friendly accommodation.
Behind a shell door on the starboard side is a garage for her Williams DJ505 tender and watertoys. Two 2,600 hp MTU diesel engines give her a top speed of 23.5 knots, a cruising speed of around 20 knots and a range of 1,650nm. The upgraded stabilisers ensure comfort underway and at anchor.
