Azimut Grande 35metri on the podium at the World Superyacht Award 2018
The panel at the World Superyacht Awards 2018 has rewarded the perfect intuition shown by the designers of the Grande 35 Metri, which satisfies the modern owner’s needs by offering plenty of space for life on board, both outdoors and below deck. Unique in its category, “MR. OH” offers its guests not one but two beach clubs, with the 12 square meter beach area in the stern joined by a second 30 sqm lounge area or beach club in the bow, furnished with sun lounging sofas and a hydromassage tub. The sleek exteriors created by Stefano Righini act as counterpoint to the interior design by Achille Salvagni, who wanted the dynamism of the outdoor areas to be offset by calm, sophisticated settings below deck, featuring flowing layouts and elegant furnishings made even more special by one-off pieces created ad hoc. The Main Deck plays host not only to the big lounge, but also to the owner’s suite fitted with a private Instant Balcony, while the four VIP cabins are located on the Lower Deck. The focus on guests’ on-board comfort doesn’t stop at the big, light-filled spaces, but can also be seen in the care lavished on even the smallest details, right from the production and construction process. Innovative construction techniques have been used, for example, to reduce noise to a minimum, while the D2P_Displacement to Planning® hull delivers optimised navigation and even more efficiency.The winners were announced at a gala ceremony held on Saturday May 19 against the magnificent backdrop of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. At the ceremony, Azimut|Benetti Group Vice President Giovanna Vitellicommented: “The prize awarded to the flagship in the shipyard’s most exclusive Collection confirms just how committed our team and all our collaborators are to offering only the best to Azimut owners in terms of comfort, design and technology”.
