New flagship yacht has not been officially presented to the market yet. Her world premiere is scheduled for spring 2017.

Azimut Yachts has announced the sale of another unit of the Grande 35 Metri, the new flagship of the fleet. The Italian shipyard says the sale was concluded during the first day of 2017 Yachts Miami Beach Show.

The yacht is for an owner who will operate her in the Caribbean region with delivery date expected in Spring 2018.

This is the fifth hull already sold by the Italian shipyard although the yacht has not been officially presented to the market yet. Her world premiere is scheduled for spring 2017.

Earlier this year Azimut Yachts disclosed very positive figures with regard to the first three months of the 2016-2017 season. These results delivered by Azimut Yachts were driven mainly by large yachts (80ft-plus), which reported an increase of 27% value growth. The news coming from the event in Miami, the second international boat show of the year, confirm this trend.

Flagship model

The Azimut Grande 35 Metri will be the biggest boat in the Grande Collection, the top, high-end Collection of Azimut Yachts.

The builder claims she will offer a concentration of unique solutions for a boat this size, such as two beach clubs (one in the stern and one in the bow), a side garage for the tender and a PWC, the possibility of adding a third deck to provide a more secluded sunbathing area, and an unprecedented solution that provides the owner’s suite with the biggest extending terrace available on the market. The model comes from the drawing board of Achille Salvagni.

The Azimut Yachts division, which specializes in yachts ranging from 12m to 35m and generates about 50% of the Azimut Benetti Group’s total turnover, grew twice as fast as the market average in the four months from September to December 2016, the company reports.
