Flaunting an irresistible combination of comfort, luxury and performance, the superb Azimut Grande 120SL made its official debut at the 2011 Cannes Boat Show. It has a gorgeous exterior by Stefano Righini Design and fabulous interiors by Carlo Galeazzi. The 120-foot vessel is the most exclusive creation of Azimut Yachts, and a star of the Azimut Benetti Group.
At a first glance, the luxury yacht impresses with its edgy exterior based on sleek, curvy lines that suggest speed and comfort. The sporty design is matched by the two Rolls-Royce water jets and the central booster, which help the yacht reach a maximum speed of 36 knots.
The beauty of this vessel is based on a continuous combination of contrasts. Classic and modern influences give a special charm to the interiors. Another beautiful contrast is that given by the use of very different materials, both in texture and in color. For instance, the delicate transparency of glass is balanced by the strength of steel, and the cream leather upholstery is boldly combined with dark Zebrano wood elements.
As guests get aboard the yacht, they reach the large aft deck, which is nicely fitted for lounging, sunbathing and alfresco dining. Dining outdoors is also possible at the stern, where a table for eight awaits its diners. Also at the stern there are several sunbeds, ideal for sunbathing or enjoying a cocktail in the sun. The overwhelming beauty of the yacht becomes apparent as one enters the luminous main saloon. Here a warm color palette dominates the space, with a luxe combination of beige and gold, and with accents of dark brown.
The main lounging area in the saloon is fitted with large, comfortable sofas, armchairs and hockers set in a symmetrical manner. What makes the saloon such a wonderful space, aside from its beautiful furniture and decors, is the huge windows and skylight, which allow natural light to flood the entire space. Placed exactly under the skylight is the saloon’s dining area. The table flaunts a white marble top with golden framing, and the chairs feature a simple, elegant design. A bar is also found in the main saloon, completing the various functions of this central room.
All guest cabins (two doubles, two twins and a VIP room) feature en-suite facilities and wardrobes. The generous owner’s suite measures approximately 463 square feet and it has separate his and hers bathrooms. It was decorated similarly to the main saloon, but with a more informal character.
