Azimut will launch its “new look” Magellano 66 this spring, a major upgrade of the popular Italian long-range cruiser it introduced five years ago.
The new look includes a redrawn flybridge, with a hardtop over the helm area, and much larger windows in the salon, letting in lots of natural light. The new Magellano will be powered by twin 850-hp MAN diesels.
The original Magellano 66 had twin 800-hp Volvos that produced a top speed of 23 knots and a range of 1,000 nm at 9 knots. The new version keeps Azimut’s “dual mode” hull that offers a smooth ride and stability from displacement speeds on up. The Magellano’s vertical bow cuts through the waves, and carries substantial interior volume forward.
The new flybridge has seating forward and sun lounges, tables and a wet bar farther aft. Below, protected by the overhang from the flybridge, the cockpit is a major entertainment and relaxing area, with lounges and a dining table.
In the salon, a sliding door can be closed for privacy; open, it leads to the galley and the helm. A stairway descends from the main deck down to the accommodations deck for more privacy.
Below, the full-beam master’s suite is amidships. There are two guest cabins; a fourth can be fitted for storage or two bunk beds.
We don’t have more details on the new Magellano 66. Stay tuned…
