Azimut Yachts unveiled the largest model in its Grande series — the Grande 35 Metri — a wide-body superyacht that has a raised pilothouse and can have a third level added.

The boat is built with carbon fiber and designer Stefano Righini drew the concept and exteriors. The entire superstructure and hardtop are made from carbon fiber to add volume, space and comfort without increasing weight.

Full-height windows in the bow and salon let in ample natural light, and an owner can add another sun deck on a third level with access from the upper deck in the stern.

With a maximum beam of 24.6 feet, the Grande 35 Metri has a side garage for a 16.4-foot tender and a 10.7-foot personal watercraft. The stern has a 39.4-square-foot beach area with a pivoting swim platform.

A second lounge or beach club area in the bow has 98.4 square feet of space, with lounges and a hydro massage tub. The trapezoidal bow provides added space for crew when they are handling mooring and anchor lines.

In the salon a large circular sofa is a highlight, and the main deck contains the owner’s suite, which has a king berth and a private balcony. Belowdecks, the layout includes four guest cabins with access from a large central lobby. The boat features a spiral staircase that connects all of the decks.

On the water, the D2P (displacement to planing) hull combines the attributes of a planing bottom and a wave-piercing design to improve efficiency. With twin 2,400-hp MTU 16V2000 M93 engines, the Grande 35 Metri has a top speed of 29.3 mph and a cruise of 24.2 mph.

Her best fuel economy is achieved at about 11 to 13 mph in semidisplacement mode.
