Azimut Yachts has added the S10 to the Azimut’s Grande line, and the yacht will also join the S Collection, which aims to blend sporty with elegant.
The Grande S10, the new S Collection flagship, is the result of collaboration with designer Alberto Mancini, working for the first time with the Avigliana-based shipyard, and designer Francesco Guida for the interiors.
Highly regarded for his purist approach, Alberto Mancini habitually draws inspiration from the aerospace and automotive worlds, which he knows very well because of his training as a car designer.
The shipyard has stated that the design philosophy behind the Grande S10 is tied to the concept of total onboard liveability, based on three fundamental elements: “elegance of a megasailer, the architecture of a modern villa on the sea and, not least, the sporty personality of automotive design.”
The exterior and interior settings, like the living area, flow through fully retractable doors, while similar materials and colour shades accentuate the continuity between outdoor and indoor spaces.
Guests will find four staterooms and two crew cabins, accommodating eight guests and three or four crew members.
The sporty feel of this model is expressed by the shapes used and the choice of materials.
The carbon that began as a technical decision is now a style feature too.
With its powerful black fibre in full view, it defines the edges of side fins that tilt towards the bow, conveying an intense sensation of dynamism. Carbon also replaces the classic steel manrope, which takes on a rather gun-like appearance and extends up to the bow, acting as the perfect containment for the sunbridge.
the superstructure stands out for the horizontal development of its surfaces, which are designed with clean cuts and contrasting colours to complement the sporty lines and to accommodate a generously-sized flybridge.
Two 2,600 hp MTU engines propel this yacht to a top speed of 35 knots.
