Azimut Grande 26M Offers Lower Emissions and Reduced Fuel Consumption

The launch of the Grande 27M in 2018 was a success for Azimut, both with the public and with the market, such that the model became a benchmark in the category. Azimut hopes to duplicate that success with the Grande 26M, presented at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September. The new model offers solutions designed for superyachts, but on a 26-meter boat. It also offers an innovative propulsion system designed to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 20 percent. The model has encountered an enthusiastic reception with 22 units sold within two months of its launch.

When it refers to a yacht, the term “super” identifies specific characteristics, which the Grande 26M delivers through smart design choices that reflect the expectations of demanding owners in terms of the onboard experience. The model has five cabins, including a full-beam owner’s suite on the main deck, and completely separated guest and crew flows. These distinctive features along with a large flybridge—50 square meters, all on the same level—have never been seen before on a yacht this size, the company says.
