Azimut has revealed that it has a new flagship model: the first Azimut Grande Trideck that is in build in Viareggio.

Three units have been sold with a fourth under negotiation and the first will make its official debut at the end of 2020.  

“Ensuring that we stayed below 300GT meant that the Trideck has been quite a complex project in terms of the design and engineering package,” says chief technical officer, Alessandro Rossi. “I think the market will be very surprised by the available space and volume on board this boat.” 

With exterior design by Alberto Mancini, the new Trideck introduces the split-level exterior deck arrangement as seen on the new Azimut S10 with a raised level ‘terrace’ on the main deck aft. As throughout the Azimut Grande and S ranges, carbon fibre will be used extensively for the superstructure construction.

“Larger models like the Azimut Grande Trideck are aspirational products for our owners,” says Marco Valle, Azimut Managing Director. “They not only increase the range, but help grow the business by pushing sales of the smaller models in a kind of chain reaction. In fact, our turnover is increasing year on year and we’ve delivered more than 250 units across the various ranges so far this year.”

Powered by standard 2400-hp (1790kW) MTU 16V20000M96 engines, the Azimut 38M Trideck is expected to have a top speed of 23 knots, a cruising speed of 19 knots and a range at 12 knots of 1,700nm.
