Azimut calls the 35 Metri the “Queen of the Grande Collection.”

The Azimut Grande 35 Metri has won the Best of the Best award from the Robb Report, a magazine that covers the luxury lifestyle. The yacht’s exterior was designed by Stefano Righini while Achille Salvagni did the interior.

The award is the sixth for the flagship of the Azimut fleet and the jury for the U.S. edition of Robb Report called the boat “the best motoryacht in the category between 100 and 200 feet.”

Among the most interesting features on the Grande 35 Metri are the two beach clubs and large balconies, which Azimut says are the most spacious in the category. Righini was praised for ensuring that every outdoor space can be exploited for a precise purpose without sacrificing guests’ comfort. For example, in the aft deck, the garage is placed on the side of the boat so the stern is left open with a 12 square-meter beach area and a large pivoting swim platform.
