Featuring the first collaboration between Azimut Yachts and m2atelier for the yacht interiors, the Grande 30M will feature yacht exteriors by Alberto Mancini and build upon the established success of the Grande 26M and Grande 36M by integrating two key design elements – the Deck2Deck™ Terrace and the Infinity Skydeck. Uniquely, the Glass House of the upper deck will feature fully disappearing full-height windows that open onto a veranda on three sides, bringing a connection between the large aft lounge and the infinity pool which overlooks the water straight off the bow.

The Series will officially launch in 2024 with the Seadeck 6, “marking a milestone in Azimut’s path towards a more conscious approach to the topic of environmental sustainability. Seadeck signals a return to nature through technological solutions that potentially reduce CO2 emissions by up to 40% in an average year of use, both while sailing and at anchor, perfectly paired with the Fun Island a reinvented aft deck that ‘embraces’ the sea and a new lifestyle based on wellbeing,” the Azimut team shares.
