This yacht hit its sale tar­get of five even be­fore its pre­sen­ta­tion in spring 2018. A premise that points clearly to the suc­cess of the boat bap­tized as the new Grande Col­lec­tion flag­ship, the most ex­clu­sive line of Az­imut Yachts. Three big names sum up the yacht pro­ject, and com­prise the umpteenth suc­cess of founder Paolo Vitelli’s team: ar­chi­tect Ste­fano Righ­ini de­signed the ex­ter­nal lines, de­signer Achille Sal­vagni the in­te­ri­ors, and Pier­luigi Au­so­nio de­vel­oped the hull lines. The Grande 35 METRI is an im­pos­ing boat with pow­er­ful con­tours. A Wide Body RPH (raised pi­lot house) made of car­bon and epoxy resin, fine resin and su­pe­rior me­chan­i­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics, com­bined with Righ­ini’s ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence helped lighten the look play­ing on the al­ter­na­tion be­tween the lighter parts of the struc­ture con­trasted with huge dark win­dows for the in­te­ri­ors. The out­door ar­eas of the Grande 35 METRI seem end­less: the yacht mea­sures 35.17 me­ters in length and 7.5 me­ters in width. The un­mis­tak­able sig­na­ture of Achille Sal­vagni — one of the 100 most in­flu­en­tial con­tem­po­rary de­sign­ers ac­cord­ing to the magazine — AD Col­lec­tor, graces the in­te­ri­ors. The de­signer used fab­rics that play on each other, opaque and light, com­bin­ing them with the shiny and dark fur­ni­ture de­tails. Ex­clu­sive ma­te­ri­als like pol­ished brass, bronze and steel blend with fluid ar­chi­tec­ture con­ceived with soft and en­velop­ing geo­met­ric con­tours rein­ter­pret­ing clas­sic styles in an ab­so­lutely con­tem­po­rary and char­ac­ter­iz­ing way. The re­sult? A more sen­sory aes­thetic ex­pe­ri­ence: sober lux­ury, and sur­round­ings that trans­mit calm and well-be­ing.
