The 38.2m long and 7.9m wide, the Azimut Trideck is not only the new flagship of Azimut Yachts, as well as the first triple-decker and the largest boat ever built by the shipyard, but even the new symbol of the brand’s innovative DNA. Trideck external viewThe Trideck proposes a revolutionary layout, both indoors and outdoors, to create new spaces more congenial to the demands of contemporary owners, increasingly inclined to a less formal lifestyle onboard and closer contact with the sea – all with a gross tonnage below 300 GT and two possible configurations for five or six guest cabins. Trideck fore lounge areaThe exterior design was penned by Alberto Mancini. With a modern stylistic language also seen in car design, Mancini lightens the external lines, restoring a feeling of dynamism, a difficult task considering the vast internal volumes on this 38m yacht. Trideck private patio The designer sculpted the hull with a rib that starts from the stern, at the height of the exhausts and extends to the bow, moving and giving tension to the profile. The fairleads themselves are styled and incorporated to enrich the design.Trideck upperdeck terrace The Trideck has three decks + One, offering a new space, an extra deck at the stern that fits among the traditional ones. It is the sea view terrace, a floating aft deck of 30 sq m that seems to remain suspended in the air, two meters above the water. Trideck sea view terraceIn addition to the sea view terrace, the other spaces overlooking the sea are: the sunbathing area on the sundeck; the main outdoor dining area on the upper deck; and the beach area. Trideck private patioThe interior is made by Achille Salvagni. 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.Trideck main salonSalvagni 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 accommodating space. Trideck main salonIt follows naturally to move the main indoor dining area from the main deck to the upper deck: a solution that fully dedicates the main deck to a more relaxed, successful social area.Trideck upperdeck lounge dining 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.Trideck main salonBy virtue of this principle, Salvagni has designed every single piece of furniture on board, choosing to remove the superfluous and let the pleasures of touch and shape give the living areas an ambience of wellbeing.Trideck owner suiteThe perceived quality of the environment in its entirety is of the highest level, thanks to a skillful combination of materials, colors and finishes.Trideck owner suiteDesigned 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 debuted on the Trideck with substantial improvements. Trideck external viewDespite 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%.Trideck beach areaGrande 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.Trideck external night viewAzimut Yachts is an Azimut Benetti Group brand.

Five 20m boats were completely destroyed and eighteen were damaged on Saturday night at Marina Kastela. The fire started around 8: 30 pm on one of the yachts in the marina. Crew members attempted to put out the fire but were unsuccessful."It was terrible; I've never seen a fire like this before. That yacht caught fire and, unfortunately, it ended up completely in flames. Everyone scattered in all directions and, believe me, it looked like a state of war. People were screaming, jumping for help, and then it suddenly grew even larger. That burning ship broke free from where it was moored and the flames quickly engulfed the other yachts. Plastic was burning, and the oil derivatives in them as well probably, so it’s not surprising that there was so much black smoke," reported Total Croatia News, quoting a witness.Lucally, no one was hurt, but damages reached into the millions of dollars.

The Vento Project was presented by Nuvolari Lenard during the Venice Boat Show. It is a manifesto for environmental protection and an appeal to designers and owners to develop, with full awareness and at 360°, authentically green large yachts.A 100m sailing superyacht can and must be environmentally friendly and have as little impact on the ecosystem as possible. Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard, founders of the Nuvolari Lenard Venetian design studio, are convinced of this. They have always been concerned with protecting the environment and have promoted responsible yacht design (their latest projects include Thunder, the 14 seater hybrid Venetian water taxi launched in 2020).In keeping with Nuvolari Lenard's own design philosophy of sporty, muscular design, Vento has a powerful, aggressive profile that confirms its unique character. However, since form is never an end in itself but always the expression of a very precise function, the yacht is designed to be as efficient as possible: the reverse bow, for example, as well as giving the yacht a strong personality, allows the waterline length to be extended to the maximum, thus increasing stability and performance when sailing. The result is a hull with reduced drag and therefore lower power requirements for a given speed, which translates into huge benefits when using sails or the motor.The sloping stern also fulfils a function, because with its small volume, it will have less impact on the overall displacement, which is crucial to an efficient and sustainable hull. A sailboat must be light, with the weight concentrated at the bottom, and Vento will thus be built in aluminium with superstructures and masts in advanced composite. A light and long hull will have less residual resistance, and will therefore form smaller waves, to the benefit of the coastline, which is increasingly exposed to the motion generated by large, fast boats.An efficient hull must be matched by an appropriate sail plan that maximises its benefits and performance. So Nuvolari Lenard turned to Omer Wing Sail and its creator, Ilan Gonen, an Israeli former fighter pilot, an aerodynamics expert and keen sailor.The result is a unique Wing Sail, which as demonstrated by recent America's Cup hulls offers significantly greater efficiency than traditional rigs.A wing sail of this type requires less sail area for the same performance and this triggers a positive spiral: by reducing the amount of sail there will be less heeling force and therefore less keel weight will be required to right the boat.Simply stated: less displacement, which is the ultimate goal. The retractable keel will make it possible to go from a drought of 5.5m to 9m. The carbon masts will measure 64m and will support a total sail area of 2100 sq m.The concept includes six double cabins: four VIP, one super VIP and the large master suite forward of the main deck, with a private terrace. The outdoor spaces are also huge and varied, including, of course, fly bridge, spa, beach club and all the other extras you'd expect to find a megayacht of this size.Building on decades of experience in yacht design in all shapes and sizes, with hugely successful projects for iconic shipyards such as Oceanco, Palmer Johnson, Perini Navi and CRN, Nuvolari Lenard decided to break the mould with a radical concept that integrates all the parameters of pure sailing with the needs of today's superyacht owner. Vento will not be the umpteenth "sail assisted megayacht", but an authentic and extremely elegant 100 meter sailing vessel that will use wind as its natural propulsive force.Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard"Being environmentally conscious has to become a way of being, as well as a way of thinking," explains engineer Carlo Nuvolari. "There's nothing stopping us from thinking about a truly green large yacht. It's not difficult to achieve major results, you just have to stop being traditionalist and take a risk, going back to the basics: building a sailing yacht that really uses sails and is really efficient.”Credits: Nuvolari Lenard
