Here are three new 20-metre boats for long cruises, innovating their respective ranges with new design philosophies. Boats that interpret the nautical tradition of the shipyards that offer them and enhance their potential.
The evolution of pleasure boats designed for long voyages is experiencing a golden moment. Azimut presents an “entry level” version to its range of globetrotting yachts. Her name is Magellano 66 and she is the best interpretation of the market demand for luxury long-distance yachts. From mini-explorer to luxury trawler, these boats can be called in many ways, but what doesn’t change is the substance. Motorboats designed to have interiors optimised to the maximum with very generous volumes able to adapt to all requirements. The second generation Dual Mode hull guarantees smooth sailing in partly formed sea conditions. It also promises maximum stability at both displacement and top speed of 23 knots.
LOA: 20.15 m – B.max: 5.40 m – Draft: 1,67 m – Displacement: 45,8 t – Construction: Carbon Fiber + GRP – Cabins: 3/4 + 1 crew – Berths: 6/8 + 2 crew – Heads: 3 + crew – Engine: 2 x Volvo D13 800 mHP V-drive – Max speed: up to 23 knots – Cruise speed: up to 19 kn – Fuel tank: 4.500 l – Water tank: 1.000 l – INFO: it.azimutyachts.com
The new Sabre 58 Salon Express is a motorboat with a vintage feel, with the shape that has made Maine boats famous the world over. The design is still the most distinctive element, inspired by the famous downeasters, the work boats typical of Maine, with which it certainly doesn’t clash. This is definitely not a “work boat”, but on this boat several philosophies come together. Even the vintage charm is combined with the most advanced construction techniques, starting with the infusion used to make the hull. The hull is also new, designed to offer greater stability on the waves even at low speeds and whose shallow draught allows safe navigation even in shallow water areas.
LOA: 20.12 m – B.max: 4.93 m – Draft: 1.45 m – Fuel Tank: 3.028 l – Water tank: 871 l – INFO: www.sabreyachts.com
The new 65 Sport Yacht shows the new design philosophy of the next generation of Sunseeker models. It also brings a fundamentally different powerboat to the 60-foot segment. With an almost invisible minimalist deck and significant use of glass, the deck and exterior profile is a blend of teak, carbon fibre and polished stainless steel features. The 65 Sport Yacht’s modular bridge can be transformed into a standard ‘Sky Lounge’ with comfortable chaise longue and companion seats or a ‘Sky Helm’ with two reinforced, lowered swivel seats on either side of a central console.
LOA: 20.46 m – B.max: 5.05 m – Draft: 1.6 m – Displacement: 35.700 kg – Berths: 7 + 1 crew – Range: 900 nm – Max speed: 35 knots – INFO: www.sunseeker-italy.com
