Last year, at Boot Düsseldorf 2023, Azimut Yachts unveiled plans for a new Magellano.
Those plans have now come to life with the official announcement of the Magellano 60 (60'7" / 18.47 m). The boat will make its first public display at at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
The Magellano 60 will be the smallest in the series and will complement their existing models including the 66 (66'1"/20.15 m), 25 (82'9"/25.22 m), and 30 (97'5"/29.7 m). She will carry an 18.47 m (60'7") LOA with a 5.15 m (16'9") beam and a 1.37 m (4'6") draught.
Even with the smaller size, the boat is designed for long voyages incorporating Azimut’s second generation hull – a semi-planing, double-chine, vertical bow design. Azimut claims the hull uses 20 percent less fuel than a similar yacht with traditional chines.
As such, the new model will fall under Azimut's Low Emission Yachts, which are proclaimed to offer a lower fuel-burning alternative with reduced C02 emissions. The company claims reduced overall emissions of 20 to 30% compared to boats of the same weight and dimensions, thanks largely due to hull design changes, the adoption of the most efficient propulsion systems, and the incorporation of carbon fiber to reduce overall weight.
Power will come via twin 720 hp MAN 16 diesel engines to deliver a top speed of 26 knots (30 mph) and a cruising speed of 18 knots (20 mph). She will host a fuel capacity of 3560 liters (940 gallons).
Featuring a total of 3+1 cabins and 6+1 berths, the interior is built for extended journeys. The full beam master stateroom is at midships, and there is an additional VIP cabin forward, with a twin cabin on the port side. Each cabin features en suite heads and showers. An additional crew cabin is accessed from the transom and is separated by the engine room for privacy.
Additional standout features include the ability to board from gates on either side, or from the swim platform. The main deck is also one level from cockpit to salon and features an 'infinity terrace' at the stern. The cockpit layout places seating that faces both fore and aft, so guests can enjoy 360 panoramic views from anywhere inside the room.
An aft galley bar with two stools provides an additional social area that links the exterior and interior of the boat. The galley itself is aft and sits just inside large glass doors that provide additional views out the back. An equally large floor-to-ceiling window in the dining area also provides natural light and unobstructed views.
Up top, the helm station on the starboard side provides seating for two. A C-shaped lounge rests to port, and additional seats in the aft provide another social area.
The suggested retail price will be $1.8 million USD for the base model and $2.5 million USD for a well-equipped model (with the most popular options).
