Unveiled with grandeur at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival, the Azimut Grande S10, the flagship model from the esteemed Italian yachting brand Azimut Yachts, sought to set a new benchmark. Part of the iconic Azimut S Line, this model offers a balanced blend of performance, innovation and elegance in one. With Alberto Mancini’s sculptural finesse defining the exterior styling and Francesco Guida’s nuanced sophistication shaping the interiors, the S10 represents the epitome of modern yachting in a sleek package.
Mancini’s vision, influenced by the aerodynamic sleekness of sports cars and the panoramic vistas of Malibu’s seaside villas, has revolutionised yacht spatial design. Eschewing traditional conventions, the S10’s expansive 20-square-metre flybridge and versatile main deck layout manifest a fresh interior narrative. This innovative approach led to the inception of the yacht’s signature feature: the infinity terrace on the main deck aft. This architectural feat provides an immersive yachting experience, accentuated by a central carbon and steel staircase. This functional and aesthetic structure links the exterior spaces seamlessly, ensuring that the sheltered outdoor seating is a fluid extension of the main saloon and lounge. Demonstrating adaptability, the terrace furniture can be effortlessly rearranged, allowing it to transition from an alfresco dining area to a dance floor as the occasion demands.
Further amplifying its connection to the sea, the Azimut S10 boasts a transformative swimming transom, which, when deployed, extends the exterior space by a significant 10 square metres. Within her design, flexibility remains paramount. The saloon and dining spaces, defined by elegant curved glass doors, can be modified to either facilitate social interactions or ensure privacy depending on the owner’s wishes. The bow houses a generously appointed lounge, replete with sunpads and sofas, designed to cater to the discerning sun aficionado. Furthermore, the cockpit, bifurcated between the flybridge and the main deck, is a testament to this ethos. As one of the pioneering yachts to feature an integrated glass bridge, its design is a confluence of intuition and aesthetic excellence.
Her accommodation quarters, located on the lower deck, are also designed to reflect the opulent yet cosy characteristics of her design. The main focus is her stunning ensuite master cabin, equipped with amenities such as a chaise lounge, bar, and a designated workspace or vanity. Accompanying this are two ensuite VIP cabins with queen beds and a versatile ensuite cabin, ensuring that each guest experiences the best of luxury out on the open waters. The thoughtful inclusion of a fully-equipped galley, two crew cabins, and a discreet dumb waiter underscores the S10’s commitment to seamlessly blending luxury and functionality. Beyond her unparalleled design and amenities, the S10 stands as a beacon of power and performance. Powered by twin 2,600 MTU 16V engines, she commands the waters with a top speed of 35 knots and maintains an impressive cruising speed of 30 knots.
