Azimut Grande 27 has made its debut appearance

Made in Italy

The 27m Azimut Grande has made its debut appearance at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

The Italian builder says this is the only 27m raised pilothouse, five-cabin yacht on the market.

It makes extensive use of carbon fibre for the superstructure and can accommodate ten guests in five cabins, including the full-beam main-deck owner's suite. There's also space for a compact crew of two people.

Power is provided by two MAN V12 diesel engines, each delivering 1,900 hp for a top speed of 27 knots. Cruising speed is 24 knots.

The first hull Grande 27m has been delivered to a repeat Azimut client.
