Azimut just completed its new Magellano 25 Metri luxury long-range cruiser, an 82-footer with a 25-knot top speed and lots of high-tech touches. The latest Magellano makes extensive use of carbon fiber, it has an active air-sanitizing system based on a NASA patent, and it offers a Hotel Mode option for silent, zero-emissions power while at anchor.
And that’s before you get to what the Italian builder calls “artistic fiberglass” in the hull, and brushed Verde Alpi marble, dark walnut wood, polished brass, lacquered wood and ribbed wood in the interior. If you’re looking for a no-frills, bare-bones cruising boat, this one’s not for you. But if you’re interested in a sophisticated vessel offering the living comforts of a five-star hotel and the safety and efficiency of Azimut’s Dual Mode semidisplacement hull, the Magellano 25 Metri fills the bill.
The new Magellano comes with a serious pedigree. The exterior is by Ken Freivokh, and the interior is by Vincenzo De Cotiis; this is their first collaboration. De Cotiis used special resin with multiple layers to create a bronze powder color that’s meant to recall the look of precious stones. Freivokh created a fully-glazed superstructure with retro-style windows in the hull and slatted teak panels aft of the deckhouse. All the interior fabrics are by Loro Piana.
The new cruiser has four cabins and five heads below, plus a crew cabin that has direct access to the galley for privacy. The owner’s suite has a walk-in closet, and a space that extends out of the hull.
A raised pilothouse has access to both the flybridge and the salon, and it has extra seating in a small divan. The salon is filled with light; a dry bar aft is open to the cockpit and a spiral staircase (with mirrors to reflect the light) leads to the flybridge.
All the way aft, an “infinity terrace” includes a retractable panel that can be lowered so that the cockpit seems to go on forever; the panel also serves as a garage hatch, and it unfolds to create a large bathing platform at water level (see picture above).
Base price for the Magellano 25 Metri is about $5,506,560 plus VAT at the factory.
