Viareggio was the venue for the launch of the new Azimut Grande 26M, a superyacht that encompasses all the elements of the range in its 26 metres. The layout is fluid and the spaces are versatile, guaranteeing at the same time privacy for guests and independence for the crew. The master cabin located on the main deck is flooded with light thanks to full-height windows.
The exterior design is by Alberto Mancini, who had already worked on the Grande 36M, while the interior is by Achille Salvagni.
The distinctive feature of the Grande 26M is the Deck2Deck, a water-facing terrace resulting from the raising of the transom and inspired by the terrace on the line’s flagship.
The cockpit thus performs the dual function of lounge or dining area with walkaround table. The furnishings are convertible and do not obstruct the horizon view.
Azimut Grande 26M is part of the yard’s new generation of Low Emission Yachts and is the first to adopt ZF’s new Pod 4600 propulsion system. The superstructure is built with extensive use of carbon fibre, resulting in a 30% lighter weight and, together with the propulsion system, reduces fuel consumption by up to 20% compared to other yachts of the same size.
Grande 26M will be on display during the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival 2022, the first of the boat show season.
