Grande 30M, scheduled to debut in 2025, represents the pinnacle of the shipyard‘s stylistic innovations aimed at revolutionizing the contact between the marine environment and guests. Designed by m²atelier for the interiors and Alberto Mancini for the exteriors, Grande 30M integrates the Deck2Deck™ Terrace and the Infinity Skydeck, successful elements in previous models.
The Infinity Skydeck offers a walkaround platform that extends from stern to bow. This allows easy movement between interior and exterior spaces. The Upper Deck’s Glass House transforms into a veranda open on three sides. In addition, this solution allows the large aft lounge to be connected with the Infinity Pool forward.
The Deck2Deck™ Terrace, an extension of the cockpit, creates a terrace overlooking the sea. As such, it expands the spaces on board and the connection to the horizon. The interior of Grande 30M, designed by m²atelier, reflects an architectural style that creates fluid and informal spaces.
Importance of Light and Environmental Sustainability
Light plays a central role aboard Grande 30M, from the large windows to the interior staircases, providing a luminous experience. This architectural approach is associated with attention to detail and harmonization of different materials. There is also a deep reflection on sustainable minimalism, which emphasizes well-being and respect for the environment.
Grande 30M is part of Azimut’s Low Emission Yacht family. A series of models that reduces fuel consumption through reduced weight, efficient hulls and innovative propulsion.
Seadeck 9: The Future of the Seadeck Series
Azimut also presented Seadeck 9, the flagship of the Seadeck Series, the first hybrid Series of family motoryachts. This Series strives to reduce CO2 emissions by 40 percent in an average year of use through technological solutions and the Fun Island, a new wellness-centered lifestyle.
Seadeck 9, designed by Alberto Mancini for the exterior and Matteo Thun & Antonio Rodriguez for the interior, transforms the Fun Island into a cascade of terraces on three levels, with a pool integrated into the deck and sliding sundecks. This design masterpiece reflects the vision of a world based on sharing, nature and freedom. The Seadeck Series will debut in 2024 with Seadeck 6.
Azimut continues to define the future of luxury yachting, emphasizing the importance of innovative design and emotional experience in the marine environment.
