Motor Yacht 100 to 200 Feet: Azimut Grande 35 Metri
Among the innovative features of Azimut’s Grande 35 Metri are two beach clubs and a largest-in-class balcony. Stefano Righini’s exterior uses every inch of the 115-foot yacht’s available space, including the 130-square-foot stern beach club. The spa-like setting is set away from the tender garage, which is located along the hull’s side, so sunbathers don’t have to compete for space with RIBs and Jet Skis. On the foredeck, the second club runs from the saloon windshield to the forepeak, sporting a dining table, lounges, sunbeds, and a hydromassage tub.
The interior by Achille Salvagni includes matte-textured woods juxtaposed against darker, polished species, with inserts in brass, bronze, and stainless steel. The master of yacht interiors treated this like a bespoke yacht, designing original furniture, lamps, and other sculptural pieces. He even curved the walls to soften the interior’s feel. Superyacht-like features also include a foldout balcony in the master suite and a spiral staircase with backlit onyx steps.
