Azimut Yachts in Italy has announced the Azimut Grande Trideck, a 124-foot motoryacht that is the yard’s first triple-decker, its largest build ever and its new flagship design.
The Azimut Grande Trideck will be available in two configurations: one with five staterooms and the other with six. In both setups, gross tonnage will be below 300.
Exteriors are by Alberto Mancini, with interiors by Achille Salvagni. Pierluigi Ausonio worked with the Azimut Benetti Research and Development Department on naval architecture.
Azimut says the Grande Trideck has “three decks + one,” with an extra deck at the stern that the builder calls the Sea View Terrace. It’s intended to be “a living room overlooking the sea,” at nearly 325 square feet and seeming to be suspended a little more than 6 feet above the water. Beneath this raised terrace is a beach area with a separate garage for tenders and toys.
The Azimut Grande Trideck is built on the brand’s D2P (displacement to planing) hull, and reportedly offers comparable—and sometimes lower—fuel consumption than the smaller Azimut Grande 35 Metri. Azimut says that at her cruising speed of 15 knots, the Grande Trideck is 15 percent more efficient than the Grande 35 Metri.
Maximum reported speed with a pair of 2,600 MTUs is 24 knots, with a range of 700 miles at 19 knots and a range exceeding 1,700 miles at a 12-knot cruise speed. The Azimut Grande Trideck also has a hotel mode that uses lithium batteries to operate the main utilities without generators for as long as four hours during the day, and eight hours at night.
Inside, the indoor dining space is on the upper deck, with the main deck dedicated to socializing. There are sole-to-ceiling windows on the main deck, with circular elements embedded in the white lacquered ceiling to recall lunar craters.
Has Hull No. 1 of the Azimut Grande Trideck been purchased? Yes, and will have “home automation” that allows tablet control of the onboard utilities, lights, air conditioning, curtains, audio and video.
