The evolution of pleasure boats designed for long navigation is experiencing a golden moment. The Magellano 25 Metri has been an international success for Azimut Yachts. Now after the announcement of the 30 Metri versionAzimut also presents a version “entry-level” to this range of globetrotting yachts. It’s called the Magellano 66 and will debut this spring.
What better range than Azimut Yachts’ Magellano range to best interpret the market demand for long-distance luxury yachts? From mini-explorer to the luxury trawler, these yachts can be called in many ways, but what doesn’t change is the substance. Motoryacht designed to have interiors optimized to the maximum with very generous volumes able to adapt to all needs.
Already from the exteriors emerges a line with a modern and timeless style. From 66 feet (20 meters) up to 30 meters (100 feet), the new generation Magellano shares the same footprint.
The living area is designed to maximize comfort on board. The yacht is developed all on one level and with large glass surfaces. Despite its 20 meters, the new Azimut Magellano 66 takes up the characteristics of the mega-yachts of the range. And so already on this 66 footer, there are distinct areas between crew and guests. For example, we find onboard a sliding door that, if necessary, separates the wheelhouse and the galley from the saloon. At the same time, access to the sleeping area from the main deck is via an off-center staircase, guaranteeing total independence of movement.
Even in the external areas, you can move freely in extremely wide spaces, starting from the flybridge where it is possible to add to the aft lounge area a large American bar. The cockpit is transformed from a dining area into a large relaxation area. Below the deck, in addition to the owner’s cabin, there are two guest cabins. A fourth cabin can become either an additional storage area or a double with overlapping beds for two more guests.
The second-generation Dual Mode hull ensures smooth sailing in partially formed sea conditions. It also promises maximum stability both at displacement regimes and at a top speed of 23 knots. The semi-displacement Dual Mode hull allows sailing at low speeds with maximum stability. As speed rises, flow separation occurs from the lower skid. Being narrower, the lower resistance also means that less fuel is needed by the two 850hp MAN engines to propel the yacht. This also increases the cruising range.
The Azimut Magellano 66 Azimut is part of Azimut Yachts’ “carbon tech” generation. This motor yacht, in addition to being CE approved in category A, meets the HTS requirements that attest to the high technical standards with which it was designed.
