The new Azimut Magellano 66 will be launched next summer, then the world debut will be in September at Cannes Yachting Festival.
It’s a new model, coming from the previous models of Magellano range: long range trawlers that remind of yesteryear’s vessel in the spirit, but stick to most modern standards in terms of design and style.
The Dual Mode hull is an example: designed to perform the same efficiency either in displacement or in planing, with the aim of giving a versatile boat and a comfortable ride at every pace.
Azimut Magellano 66 is 20 meters long, and features interior space that the Yard itself defines “surprising”. In the standard version, the main deck is on the same level from the sliding cockpit door to the helm station and galley abow. The living is organized into a large L shaped sofa, a wet bar with TV up to 50′, and dining table.
The “Navetta” version splits the living/dining area from the pilothouse and galley, to offer more privacy in case there’s crew on board, which is likely on a 20 meter boat. An additional door opens onto the side deck to allow crew people to move around without walking through the salon.
The lower deck boasts three cabins. The owner’s apartment uses the whole beam and features two separate closets and much room for storage. Same attention is dedicated to VIP and guests cabins. A fourth space can be a small cabin with two bunk beds or a utility room. Washer and dryer are easily accessible from the passageway that leads to cabins.
Outside, a large free space abaft the sun bridge can be furnished with cushions and freestanding pieces, while an awning can cover the area. Another lounge area is located to bow.
The Azimut Magellano 66 will be powered by twin Volvo Penta D13, 800HP each. According to the Shipyard, the range at 9 knots (including 10% reserve) will top 900 nautical miles. The fast cruise pace is reckoned to be 16 to 18 knots.
