Azimut Yachts gets the new year off to a flying start with two major awards for the Azimut Grande 35 Metri. On January 10, at an elegant gala evening event set against the prestigious backdrop of the Rosewood Hotel in London, Azimut Grande 35 Metri was presented with the Custom Yacht award by Motorboat&Yachting. The prize is assigned by a panel of testers from the highly regarded UK magazine to the top boats reviewed during the season. The reasons for the panel’s choice of the flagship in the Grande Collection by Azimut include the exclusive instant balcony with panoramic view for the owner’s cabin, the spacious side garage that is unique in this product category, and finally a wave-piercing hull to deliver premium performance.
In yet another token of the appreciation shown on international markets for this model and following on from the prize awarded to it by Yacht France last autumn, early in January Azimut Grande 35 Metri was judged the Best International Motorboat Over 30 Meters by the Christofle Yacht Style panel at the Phuket Rendez-Vous, an event dedicated to yachting and luxury lifestyle by Yacht Style Asia to mark the magazine’s 10th anniversary.
Giovanna Vitelli, Azimut|Benetti Group Vice President, commented: “I am proud of the success of this extraordinary model, which has already received two awards for its unique design. These are now joined by a third prestigious trophy that also rewards the innovative technical characteristics developed with great determination by our R&D team.”
