Benetti’s full custom M/Y Seasense is a decidedly original yacht. Its unusual features include the Benetti Beach Concept and the indoor-outdoor veranda, both on the Main Deck. The interiors, on the other hand, are characterised by the use of colour as a décor element and by over 100 different materials.
At an event reminiscent of Oscar night on the Croisette in Cannes, Azimut’s yachts were crowned by an international jury with some of the most sought-after awards in the yachting industry.
They represent yet another acknowledgement of the shipyard’s ongoing major investments in research and development to consolidate and improve its position as world leader.
Zuccon International Project has received a new international recognition from the World Yachts Trophies, which awarded two projects by the Italian architects during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2017.
During the Cannes Yachting Festival which runs from 12 to 17 September, Azimut Yachts in Azimut Benetti Group, the world’s leading private group in the yachting world, presents four new models: Azimut Grande 35METRI, Azimut Grande 27METRI, Azimut S7 and Azimut 60 Fly.
Each yacht bears the unmistakable hallmark of longtime Azimut designer Stefano Righini, known for his innovative concepts, and features interiors by Achille Salvagni and Francesco Guida.
All four models, which have already aroused significant sales interest, represent the epitome of innovation, technology and design in their respective segments and are destined to be leading players at this autumn’s key boat shows.*
Azimut Grande 35METRI and Azimut Grande 27METRI are the new additions to the brand’s elite range, the Grande Collection. The use of carbon fibre means greater on board space without sacrificing static and dynamic stability levels. The 35Metri, the collection’s new flagship, boasts an exceptionally streamlined internal design, characterised by the master suite’s unique swivelling balcony, which opens out directly onto the sea.
The Grande 27METRI features a wide body with full beam master suite on the main deck and a choice of three or four cabins on the lower deck, a layout practically unheard of in yachts of this size.
The superior technology of the Azimut S7 has revolutionised the sporting motor yacht concept not only with its use of carbon fibre but also its non-conventional approach to spatial distribution. The S7, comprising two versions (Coupé and Sportfly), boasts a wonderfully innovative interior design created by Francesco Guida in his debut collaboration with Azimut, unprecedented spaciousness below deck and three Volvo IPS engines.
Last but certainly not least, the sleek, bold and eye-catching Azimut 60 Flybridge is a striking yacht, with its unusually large flybridge and stunning interiors of the sort usually found on mega yachts. Features include full-height windows and a series of lounge areas which create tiny islands of privacy, a luxury seldom found in boats of this size.
The Cannes Yachting Festival, which opens the international boat show season, sees a fleet of 19 yachts from the Italian shipyard on show, ranging from 10 to 40 metres. It also marks the global debut of the company’s new brand strategy: La Dolce Vita 3.0, which brings together luxury, joie de vivre and Made in Italy at the state-of-the-art, the hallmark characteristics of the Azimut Yachts brand.
Choosing Azimut Yachts means entering a world in which an unparalleled level of technological research and a matchless attention to comfort are combined with that inimitable Italian style which has captivated the world since time immemorial.
On top of this, the four new models can also lay claim to a stunning aesthetic born of the collaboration between internationally renowned interior designers Salvagni and Guida and longstanding Azimut Yachts partner Stefano Righini.
The Cannes Yachting Festival will also provide an opportunity to present the team from Azimut Yachts France, the new exclusive dealer in one of the brand’s key European markets.
But that’s not the end of the news on the commercial front: Azimut Yachts is consolidating its presence in Europe with new dealerships in the UK, as well as entering new waters with its launch on two promising new markets, Slovenia and Lithuania, involving the creation of Azimut Yachts Slovenia and Azimut Yachts Lithuania. In the United Kingdom, Azimut Yachts has entrusted its distribution to Southampton-based Azimut Yachts UK, who are charged with the task of transmitting the Italian brand’s DNA to the Anglo-Saxon market.
