Azimut Yachts enters the world of triple-deckers with a revolutionary model: The Grande Trideck, three decks + one.
Designed for a contemporary owner, looking for a context for conviviality in constant contact with the marine environment, the new Trideck has been designed in the name of flexibility. She was conceived on staggered decks to offer an unprecedented interpretation of the environments onboard, even inventing all-new spaces.
The project was carried out by a tested team, consisting of the designers Alberto Mancini for the exteriors, Achille Salvagni for the interiors, and Pierluigi Ausonio for the hull.
Always guaranteeing light and dynamic external lines, Alberto Mancini directed the design of the Trideck. Starting from the insertion of a mezzanine staggered deck at the stern, the Sea View Terrace, new and wider spaces appear across the Trideck. This is the principle of “+ One”, a new design concept and a testament to Azimut Yachts’ innovative capacity; the feature offers the owner four cascading terraces onto the sea, unique in function, size and flexibility – especially on a Trideck.
The layout innovation is felt right from the first step onboard. The Trideck welcomes her guests through a central royal staircase, which reaches the quay from the half-raised Sea View Terrace. It is thanks to this intermediate bridge that a sequence of four cascading terraces is created, which descend from the top down to sea level, each with its own specific function: the Sundeck, the Dining Terrace, the Sea View Terrace, and the Beach Area.
The Sea View Terrace is an open stage, a new cantilevered area that precedes the traditional cockpit. With an open area of about 30 square meters, the Sea View Terrace is fitted out with a large C-shaped sofa arrangement facing off the stern, designed to offer the owner a convivial and immersive entertaining area for guests.
The raised Sea View Terrace also has a second advantage. It gives height to the underlying Beach Area, usable in all its width also thanks to the separate garage for tenders and toys. With two meters of headroom and cutouts in the sidewalls, this is not a space stolen from the garage but a true beach on the sea. During stops at anchor, the hinged transom opens to increase the available surface to more than 30 square meters. The Beach Area is equipped to connect guests directly with the sea, fully customizable in furnishing and served by a day head and wet bar.
In addition to the Sea View Terrace and Beach Area, Mancini’s project creates a more secluded outdoor area. On the Main Deck, a few steps below the Sea View Terrace, the cockpit becomes a Private Patio, a protected and reserved living area perfect for eating or lounging while moored stern-to. It is a hybrid area, located outdoors yet indoors, becoming the natural extension of the main salon into “plein air” and blurring the threshold for an even smoother transition.
The third terrace is the main outdoor dining area, aft of the Upper Deck, which develops around the square table (extendable to seat up to 12) of handcrafted natural teak with white lacquered inserts. The area is rounded off by corner sofas for aperitivo and a series of furniture for the service.
Topping off the cascade of terraces is the Sun Deck, which comes with a large sunbathing area at the stern with freestanding furniture and a view overlooking the sea. There is a lounge area with opposing circular sofas, with a table for lunch in the center and towards the bow, an American bar overlooks the horizon with a large barbecue.
On the Trideck, Mancini’s sporty touch, typical of his projects for Azimut, has evolved to approach the modern yet elegant lines of a true flagship.
As for the other models in the Grande Collection, Azimut Yachts relied on Achille Salvagni for the design of the interior spaces and furnishings. The designer fully embraces the cause of the shipyard: to offer the market a redefinition of the role of space, giving new functionality to the onboard environments. Salvagni works on two levels: function and style. First of all, he carries out a functional rethinking of the interior spaces, for which he abandons the preconceived functions of each area. The goal is to transform the yacht into a place where the owner can live without constraints, in a more liquid and accomodating space. To this end, the interiors have been dilated and integrated with the external areas, to become extensions of one another, a harmonious continuum.
Designed by Pierluigi Ausonio together with the Azimut-Benetti Research and Development Department, the hull benefits from proprietary CFD software, FEM analysis, and form optimizations to yield unrivaled results in terms of efficiency. The Grande 35Metri, featuring the first generation D2P hull was already best in class and the second generation debuts on the Trideck with substantial improvements. Despite being 3 meters longer, 30 GT larger, and 35 tons heavier, the Trideck consumes fuel at the same rate as her smaller sister at all speeds above 19 kn, and manages to be 15% more efficient at a cruising speed of 15 kn. To put these results in context, when compared with a traditional hard chine hull, the improvement in displacement fuel efficiency reaches over 40%.
For even more freedom, owners can also add Hotel Mode to the Trideck. This means being able to relax, anchored in a bay with zero emissions, and in total silence. With a lithium battery pack of about 130 kWh, the Trideck can operate the main onboard utilities with the generators switched off for up to 4 hours during the day and 8 hours at night.
The cruising comfort is improved by a highly integrated software called Argo, designed and supplied by CMC Marine, to automatically harmonises the movement of the electronic stabilizing fins with the autopilot, avoiding waste and ensuring smooth sailing.
