Azimut Grande 100
If you’re looking for a yacht with loads of onboard luxury as well as a sleek, sporty look, Azimut may have just the build for you—the new Grande 100. The boat’s striking profile, which was conceived by Stefano Righini, is undeniably slick, with stiletto-sharp lines throughout.
And those lines aren’t just for show, they’re also for go.
At WOT the boat’s twin 2,200-mhp MTU 16V 2000 M84s can propel her along at 30 mph. But she can also maintain a brisk cruise speed of 26 mph, not a bad pace at which to pop over to Bimini for a weekend jaunt or maybe make a run to Saint-Tropez for some fresh croissants.
And if you do decide to make that trip an overnight you’ll have no problem finding ample accommodations for you and your guests. The 100 comes with either a four- or five-cabin layout. If you chose the four-cabin configuration, the owner’s cabin becomes a palatial two-story suite. Layout options also include several versatile spaces that can be configured as a fitness area, media room, private saloon, or studio.
The outdoor space is just as suited to living the good life in style. The flying bridge features a dining table with seating for ten, a bar, and a Jacuzzi. The cockpit also has a sofa plus a dining table with seating for ten and has access to the retractable swim platform, which can fit tenders up to almost 15 feet. With all of these amenities and then some, the Grande 100 should please just about any discerning owner.
