The Azimut Grande 36 Metri is a 115-foot luxury superyacht with a flybridge that was launched by the iconic Italian yacht-building company Azimut in 2023. An assertive and confident profile crafted by naval stylist Alberto Mancini suggests plenty of raw power, with a wave-slicing bow entry, sheer horizontal lines, cutaway bulwarks and masses of tinted glass producing a hyper-modern vibe. Featuring a slew of cutting-edge innovations including a semi-walkaround upper-deck, a lightweight carbon-fiber superstructure, an efficient D2P hull and an AHU climate-control system, this has to be one of the most impressive pieces of nautical engineering ever to hit the water. What’s more, this yacht also offers up to 10 guests a palatial place to party, unwind and explore, with stylish, comfortable and elegant lounge space across four lavish decks.

Take in the views up on the teak-lined sundeck, where there’s enough room for a set of sun-loungers, a pair of forward sunpads in plush upholstery, a U-shaped sofa with a coffee table and a walk-in wet-bar. One level down you will discover a walk-around upper-deck that stretches from bow to stern, with an elongated foredeck setting new industry standards for sun-kissed, horizon-facing lounges. This al-fresco space not only boasts a sprawling U-shaped sofa for up to eight guests but a vast modular sunpad for four and a forward plunge-pool lined in timber, metal and glass. Head to the partially-sheltered aft-deck to discover two more huge sunpads, this time with adjustable backrests so that they can be used as dining sofas facing the bespoke timber-topped dining table out here. Step beyond sliding glass doors and into the elevated Gentleman’s Club on this level to discover a sophisticated space lined by floor-to-ceiling glazing with a unique curved sofa, a hand-made coffee table, an Art Deco-inspired wet-bar station and plenty of space for cigars, cognac and the odd game of cards. An enclosed pilothouse sits on this level and boasts all of the latest high-tech gadgetry, including a full Raymarine package, required for ambitious offshore expeditions.
Down on the main-deck there’s a shaded aft-cockpit that benefits from plenty of privacy, a transom sofa and an extra wet-bar with an outdoor grill, while to stern there are two staircases leading down to a water-level beach club comprising a hydraulic swim platform and a recessed niche hosting waterproofed seating options. Due to the beach-club back here the tender garage boasts an innovative side-entry door and enough space for two large water-toys.
Breezy and free-flowing interiors on this level are the work of Achille Salvagni, who has responded to the sharp and sleek exterior with a softer, laid-back and more curvaceous theme for those relaxing indoors. Retro designs with an understated vibe and a neutral palette take direct inspiration from the space-age 70s to blend vintage motifs with a more contemporary edge, all superbly lit by strip lighting in the faceted ceilings or from natural light streaming in through cinema-screen glazing with some of the market’s largest single glass panes. A curved socializing sofa with arm-chairs and a hand-made coffee table is joined by a formal dining table for up to ten in a salon lined in varnished hardwood with golden oak floors, while further forward there’s a live-in country kitchen with heavy-duty amenities and a full-beam master stateroom. This lavish retreat includes a king-sized bed, an array of full-height closets, a private lounge, a work-desk and a full-beam double bathroom lined in veined marble that is connected together by a wet-room shower. On the lower-deck there are four more en-suite staterooms with generous dimensions, queen-sized or twin beds and lavishly-proportioned hull glazing, while towards the bow there is a crew and storage area for up to eight members of staff.
Powered by a twin-set of 2400HP MTU motors, you can expect competitive top speeds of up to 24 knots at full-throttle, with sedate cruising speeds settling in at around 18 knots. At this lower economy cruise speed you will be out on the water all week long thanks to a vast 5019-gallon fuel tank and a patented, fuel-efficient D2P hull.
