Azimut exhibited no less than nine models at the recently concluded Genoa International Boat Show 2022. The brand has six different lines of yachts, ranging from 13 to 38 metres, but with one thing in common: to offer owners avant-garde, designer yachts with great emotional appeal.
At the Italian event Azimut presented the new jewel of the Grande line: the latest Grande 26M. The real flagship of an ambitious project which aims to be the new category benchmark and offer the same opportunities as a megayacht in its size.
It is nothing new that the Azimut brand confronts the future with unprecedented innovative solutions. Think for example of the Pod propulsion: brought into vogue by them and today, it is the most successful technology on the market today.
This is also the basis for the innovations that the shipyard, together with ZF, has introduced on the Grande 26M. Thanks to their experience and continuous research, this yacht has a new Pod 4600 propulsion system, installed here for the first time in the world.
The system, which combines this type of engine with a 30% lighter superstructure, thanks to the extensive use of carbon fibre, makes it possible to reduce consumption by 20% compared to a boat of the same size, at the various speeds most frequently used.
This surprising result allows the Grande 26M to be included in Azimut’s Low Emission Yachts range, which already includes half of their range. This is no small achievement, which once again confirms the innovative and sustainable vision of Azimut, a pioneer in the yachting field and world leader in the megayacht sector.
The new Grande 26 confirms all expectations and even exceeds them: first of all, it arranges the interior spaces as in superyachts, then, it divides the flow of the crew (positioned at the bow) from that of the guests, so as to guarantee total privacy.
The element that really makes you fall in love with Grande 26M is the Deck 2 Deck® Terrace: a dream terrace, above the water.
This particular terrace is obtained thanks to the extension of the transom, which can be raised to transform the cockpit into a large space suspended between the sea and the sky, thus becoming both a lounge area and a dining room, thanks to a large walk-around table.
A sophisticated design, a boat synonymous with simplicity and elegance with maximum comfort and minimum emissions, which undoubtedly respects Azimut’s vision, always.
Welcome aboard the change.
