At Boat International Design & Innovation Awards 2018 the boat 'Azimut Grande 35 Metres"was awarded for design and innovation. The award, considered among the most prestigious in the industry, came from the magazine Boat Internationala well-known international publishing group specialising in the super yacht branch.
The flagship boat of the Avigliana was awarded not only for its architecture and style, but also for its design, which contributes to innovative technological solutions for owners.
Azimut Grande 35 Metres is the largest ever built by the company Azimut Yachtsand was introduced to the market in September 2017. Curated by designer Stefano Righini for outsiders, and by Achille Salvagni for the interior, the jury also awarded it because of the larger "instant balcony"currently on the market.
Yet another accolade for the home flagship Azimut Yachts after the previous three won at international level.
The jury of the Boat International motivated the award as follows: "Technological innovations have enabled the development of a unique design, combining the typical lines of the Grande Collection with more voluminous structures, in line with current market demands. Indeed, among the spaces that the 35 METRI wide-body offers its owner, there is an owner's suite on the main deck with the largest Instant balcony available on the market, four guest cabins, the side tender garage and the aft beach club".
"To these are added the bow sunbathing area with Jacuzzi, together with the enormous Flybridge and the possibility of integrating an additional Sundeck on a third level. To achieve all this, the shipyard took advantage of the possibilities offered by the use of carbon fibre, with which the entire superstructure was built. This made it possible to considerably reduce both weight and noise and vibration".
"The special D2P hull with wave piercer - concludes the award jury - also guarantees an increase in efficiency of up to 25 knots. A decidedly characterising element that the designer Stefano Righini wanted to give the model is the clean, square cut of the main deck at the bow, while the interior, made by Achille Salvagniare a synthesis of sensual curves and a variety of exclusive materials".
Giovanna Vitellivice president of the Azimut-Benetti Group, commented as follows upon receiving the award: "This latest success of Azimut Grande 35 Metres is a confirmation of our company's international leadership in this market segment".
