Ready to launch the third 120SL
The third unit of Azimut Grande 120SLs built over the last two years is scheduled for launch this April 2014 it is an embodiment of the Azimut-Benetti Group's production excellence. "Made up of planing yachts over 30-metres, the Azimut Grande is the most exclusive Azimut Yachts collection". Paolo Vitelli, chairman of the Azimut Benetti Group says, "Azimut Grande represents a tangible response to the needs expressed by our boat owners. It is an appealing and distinctive line that doesn't cut corners in terms of comfort and flawless performance. Rigorous trials and tank testing have helped develop a high performance keel that can cruise with ease, even in rough seas.
Adopting water jet transmissions has significantly limited vibrations and noise, maximising on board comfort for the boat owner and guests". This third example of the Azimut Grande 120SL retains all the features which the previous units were renowned for, adding three MTU 16v 2000, 2640 horsepower engines (2450 rpm), boosting the maximum speed to 39 knots. The internal layout still includes a main saloon with its 60 square metres.
The liveability and expanse of the interiors is emphasized by opening the glazing which separates the living area from the cockpit to create a single space in direct contact with the sea. The living area comes standard with a ten-person dining table and two sofas, it can of course be closed off and climate controlled.
