MarineMax Yachts Announces the Sale of an Azimut Grande 26M

CLEARWATER, FL (December 14, 2023) – MarineMax Yachts announced the sale of the customized Azimut Grande 26M, sold by yacht broker Mike Lennon of MarineMax Huntington.

  • Azimut Grande 26m
    The journey to acquiring the new Azimut Grande 26M began when the couple was referred to MarineMax Yachts by an esteemed sub-dealer based in the Hamptons. One of Mike's initial meetings with the owner took place at the Cannes Yachting Festival in 2022, where they first viewed the Azimut Grande 26M and she was in awe of the allure of the unique style of Azimut yachts and unparalleled on-desk master suites. They owned an Azimut 66 Fly at the time when they decided to move up to the Azimut Grande 26M.

The Grande 26M includes five beautifully appointed staterooms, with the highlight being the stunning on-deck master suite. The ability to customize the yacht to their exact requirements was a key factor in their decision to choose Azimut.

The following year, the wife had the opportunity to fly from the Cannes Yachting Festival to Italy to tour their completed Grande 26M at the Azimut yard. The personalized sea trial and on-site inspection allowed her to witness the intricate details and decor, solidifying their love for the yacht they had designed. After viewing the masterpiece, they had created she enjoyed a seaside lunch at the local café before flying back to Cannes.

During their yacht-buying journey, the owner embarked on an unforgettable experience in Viareggio, Italy. They were treated to white-glove service, including a helicopter tour, limousine transfers, and exclusive sea trials with Azimut Captain and mates. This once-in-a-lifetime adventure culminated in a rooftop helicopter departure from the Benetti shipyard.

The yacht is currently in the United States, undergoing preparations in Dania to ensure it meets the highest standards before it embarks on its maiden voyage. The couple plans to utilize their new yacht to explore the eastern seaboard, focusing on cruising from New York to Florida.
