Azimut Yachts introduces the Grande Trideck, the first three-deck yacht built by the yard and its largest build to date.

15 December 2020


At 38.2-metre, Azimut’s new Grande Trideck is set become the yard’s the largest yacht ever, and is due for delivery in early 2021.

The exterior design by Alberto Mancini introduces a host of innovations in terms of layout, including an aft raised cockpit and the development of new outdoor areas with multiple functions.

The interiors are designed by Achille Salvagni, who has moved away from the traditional arrangement of onboard spaces to create versatile, informal environments for guests to enjoy in comfort. There is also an option of a sixth cabin on the upper deck.

The 7.9-metre wide yacht features water lines developed by Pierluigi Ausonio’s firm P.l.a.n.a., with a D2P® Displacement to Planing hull designed together with the Azimut Research and Development centre, improving maximum efficiency at all speeds.

As one would expect from an Azimut flagship, the exterior lines are elegant and dynamic, but the twist comes in the form of a raised deck in the stern that creates a series of new exterior spaces, strategically spaced out around the boat.


The central idea of the design concept is to create separate spaces depending on mood and function. The Trideck welcomes guests from the central gangway directly onto the aft raised deck, which could be described almost as a mezzanine that sits slightly above the main deck.

The creation of this raised deck, in turn, opened the door to a trio of new zones: a Sea View Terrace, Beach Club and Private Patio.

The Sea View Terrace, which could be described as an open-air stage on the sea, is a newly-created spacious lounge zone that is raised above the water. The absence of side enclosures ensures spectacular, unimpeded views and, thanks to a solid-and-void effect created with the external lines, the terrace appears detached from the bulwarks and floating on the water.

The position of the aft raised deck allowed the designer to offer a huge full height ceiling beach club right at sea level. At anchor, the transom opens up to extend the entire space to over 30 square metres.

The Private Patio is a sheltered, intimate space a few steps below the Sea View Terrace. The cockpit has, in effect, been designed as an alfresco patio that at the same time, offers privacy and respite from the breeze in the form of the large glass fashion plates.

The upper deck houses another versatile and ample full-beam space, separated from the external area by a glass door that opens up to create one vast dining/lounge area.

Finally, the sun deck contains a forward bar and a custom spa tub surrounded by a sun pad and freestanding furniture.

The Trideck retains hints of the sporty look typical of many of Mancini’s other designs for Azimut, but its dynamic, modern and elegant contours are more redolent of a flagship. The clean lines are there for all to see, from the large windows that create a seamless surface running all the way to the stern, to the slanted windshield that finishes in a vertical windbreaker on the Sun Deck.

The double chine hull reduces drag at cruising speed and improves stability during displacement navigation. With two engine options, the Trideck delivers a top speed of 23 or 24 knots.
