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. From a design point of view, the greatest triumph was to create a yacht with a semi planing hull, up to six cabins, a widebody superstructure and a Sun Ddeck, all while remaining under 300 GT in volume.
The design of the Trideck starts from the insertion of a mezzanine staggered deck at the stern, the Sea View Terrace, new and wider spaces appear accross the Trideck: the feature offers the owner four cascading terraces onto the sea, unique in function, size and flexibility – especially on a Trideck.
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. The clean lines dominate everything, from the large windows that create a continuous, uninterrupted surface up to the stern, to the sloping windshield that ends with a vertical bare-headed windbreak on the Sundeck.
The interior spaces of the Azimut Grande Trideck
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.
The most natural step is to move the dining area inside from the Main Deck to the Upper Deck: a solution that fully dedicates the main deck to a more relaxed, successful social area.
Salvagni does not limit himself to redefining the environments onboard, but also enriches them through a close attention to décor, favoring the tension between forms and the purity of the line, abandoning any ostentation at the same time.
Forward on the Main Deck is the owner’s suite, full beam with large windows, and conceptually broken down into special regions, starting from the entrance as a lobby/dressing area. The main material is tay wood, clear and clean, contrasted against a polished mahogany. The floor is made of textured Cardoso stone. In this area too, the lights, as well as the furnishings, are special pieces designed by Salvagni.
Imagining the next expression of a growing trend, Salvagni begins to evolve the bathroom into a wellness area, centered around the large freestanding tub which doubles as a rich design element.
The formal dining area is located on the Upper Deck. Formal, however, does not mean conventional, the skylounge being conceived as a multipurpose area. Most of the time, people prefer to eat outdoors. The Sky Lounge on the Upper Deck is shaped as an intimate nook, with a huge cozy sofa and convertible table, an attractive spot to come inside after dinner, especially for movies, equipped with a 55” pop-up flatscreen.
Trideck Upperdeck Lounge
The command area is a blend of elegance and technology, characterized by a futuristic helm that integrates all onboard systems with Simrad Command.
Further forward, there is a sprawling lounge area, with sunpads surrounding the circular whirlpool tub, a lounge area with opposing sofas and then a further sunbed area towards the bow, sheltered by a mini windscreen. On the Lower Deck there are four en-suite guest cabins: two VIPs aft and two guest cabins forward.
The Azimut Trideck offers innovative design solutions, starting from the tonnage, which remains below 300 GT despite the generous interior volume.
The first of the most significant elements of the Trideck from a technological point of view is the debut of the new second-generation D2P® Displacement to Planing hull.
The Trideck is the newest member of the Carbon Generation, with her entire superstructure laminated in carbon fiber for a 30% local reduction in weight and an absolute weight reduction of 6 tons.
Grande Trideck has a dual-motor option, with a pair of MTUs of 2400 or 2600 hp each. The first model under test, with an engine of 2600 hp, recorded a maximum speed of 24 knots, a range of 700 miles at 19 knots and, at a cruising speed of 12 knots, an autonomy of over 1700 miles.
