At the gala evening organised by Christofle Yacht Style Awards 2019 to mark the Thailand Yacht Show & RendezVous, Azimut Yachts, for the second year in a row, collected the prestigious prize won by the new entry in the Grande collection.

Azimut Grande 25 Metri climbs to the top step of the podium and wins the “Best Motor Yacht in Asia”Award in the 25-30 meter category. The panel at the Christofle Yacht Style Awards 2019 recognised and rewarded the most outstanding models for innovation, style and build quality, as well as for their ability to deliver an exceptional cruising experience for the owner and, finally, their special focus on the Asian market. These are all characteristic qualities of Azimut Yachts’ Grande 25 Metri, which is a model designed to amaze and features a style that achieves the ideal balance between charm and technology.

Built using Carbon Tech technology, it was designed for an owner with a clearly-defined and determined lifestyle who wants to stand out from the crowd. The interior design by Achille Salvagni presents an unprecedented blend of elegance and informality, while the sleek, light-touch exterior lines are by Stefano Righini. Featuring volumes on a par with those of an important motoryacht (as is confirmed by the garage for the tender and a layout designed to ensure the separation of crew and guest flows), it also amazes with an original take on the living area, where the typical separation of sofa and dining areas is abandoned in favour of a single, sophisticated setting, decorated with great care and personality.

The event, now in its second year, is promoted by magazines Yacht Style Asia, Luxuo and Palace, with the goal of identify and rewarding yachting sector excellence in Asia and worldwide.

The gala evening was held in the run up to the Thailand Yacht Show & RendezVous, the yachting and luxury lifestyle event attended by Chanyo Manakulsawasd from MGC Marine, Thomas Woo and Paul Grande from Marine Italia, Azimut Yachts Asia dealers respectively for Thailand, Singapore and Hong Kong. Unanimous their comment: “We are proud to represent in Asia such a prestigious brand that stands out for its reliability and ability to offer always new products. After the success of the Azimut Grande 35 Metri last year, we are glad that the 25 Metri of the same Collection has once again won this important award, keeping up the brand’s excellent reputation in a geographical area that particularly appreciates the features of Italian design and advanced technology typical of every Azimut yacht”.


During the kick off of the “Benetti Giga Season”, while in Livorno was launched the first of three gigayachts with length of more than 100 meters, “Good Day”, the fourth unit of Mediterraneo 116’, yacht in the Class product line, was christened in the waters of the Viareggio shipyard. This is a yacht that combines special comfort and refined exterior lines, born from the experience and the work of the designer Giorgio M. Cassetta.

“Good Day” is a 35.5-meter displacement yacht with a fiberglass hull and carbon-fibre superstructure. Giorgio M. Cassetta, who already put his signature on the other three Mediterraneo 116’ units, designed the vessel managing to meet the requirements of those who love the sea and want to fully enjoy all moments of navigation.  

The path followed for the exterior design by Giorgio M. Cassetta is what characterizes this model and shows how great is the Shipyard desire to admire finally at sea a light but yet impressive yacht with sinuous and slim lines. Benetti’s Interiors Style Department flawlessly dealt with the interior layout, fulfilling the ship owner’s dream by involving him in the processes of design through interesting proposals that became the pivot of a good part of the work on which the project was developed.

Firstly, the owner desired a strong distinction of the settings and this became the common thread on which the whole project was based. The result is a great variety of materials that, used in different areas, are very eye-catching. 

In fact, the concept of decor is focused on the alternation of three types of wood that, combined, ensure a very interesting colour game that characterizes each area in a unique way. In the Lower Deck the Tay, the Tanganyika and Elm were used; instead, only Elm and Tanganyika were used for the Upper Deck.

In addition to the wood, the boat is embellished with marble details and mosaics that characterize the bathrooms. In this case, the owner’s choice fell on the Travertino, Shara Noir and Port Laurent and on Ermosa and Blue Sea that give a very pleasant touch of colour.

On Main Deck, the main saloon is enhanced by the welcoming sofas and hosts a dining area with a beautiful round 12-seater table. Conviviality and comfort have in fact been the key words of the owner, who requested dining areas on all decks, along with a relaxation area with a swimming pool on the bow of the Upper Deck. The full-beam owner’s suite is located on the Main Deck, equipped with a comfortable wardrobe and characterized by large panoramic glazed surfaces that allow you to enjoy a real bath of light. A further request from the owner was the addition of a bathtub and a shower bench in the master bathroom.

On the Lower Deck are the four guest cabins while the Upper Deck, connected to the Sun Deck by an elevator, includes a karaoke area, which is also equipped with sofas that call to mind the need for comfort widely expressed by the owner. To enhance the environment and recall the conviviality theme, this area is embellished by a large wine cellar. The kitchen, also made according to a careful customization, is equipped with a steam oven and a modern wok system.

Finally, the Sun Deck is distinguished by the arrival station of the elevator, a large and comfortable dining area and a space dedicated to relaxation.


Azimut Yachts takes a ‘strategic lineup’ to Northern Europe’s most important boat show, from January 19 to 27, 2019, with the goal of attracting visitors by offering a huge selection of possibilities and experiences for owners.
