Project: Azimut Grande 140

A lot of production builders who have build a reputation and an image in the mid sizes have in the last decade entered the super yacht market of eighty feet plus, now Azimut one of the front runners in this race since the eighties presents a new flagship project, which expands the Italian builder size by 20 feet, the triple deck Grande 140.  But the new big Azimut does not want only to be a new flagship and also reinvents itself with a new hull shape called D2P Displacement to Planning, and a new propulsion system made in collaboration with Rolls Royce the Carbon Azipull 65C. This new 140 Grande project is to be the largest Azimut ever build, taking honors away from the recently launched 120 SL.  An important entertainment focus will be of three huge sun spa areas; fore deck, flybridge, and aft in the beach bathing platform.  It's standard interior layout will be for five double guest cabins, and a huge owners stateroom on the main deck.  Three crew cabins sleep six on the fore peak of the lower deck, plus a double captains cabin on the upper floor behind the pilot house.  Power is from twin MTU 3460hp with speed estimated being a max of 21 knots and a cruise of 16.
