Azimut Magellano 66 to get Cannes Boat Show launch
Motorboat & Yachting: The Azimut Magellano 66 will be launched at the 2015 Cannes Boat Show. With twin Volvo Penta D13 engines, these will give the Azimut Magellano 66 a top speed of 22 knots and a 900-mile range at 9 knots.
This summer will see the launch of the Azimut Magellano 66, as the Italian yard expands its popular trawler yacht range. Built with the same ‘Dual Mode’ hull design as all Azimut trawlers, the Magellano 66 promises a smooth ride even if rough conditions.On board, the main deck is arranged on a single level, with a large sliding door separating the saloon from the cockpit. Key saloon highlights include an L-shaped sofa, dining table, and a range of TV options up to 50 inches.
A Navetta version will also be offered with an amidships staircase that allows the helm and galley to be kept separate from the saloon and cockpit.
The flybridge is available with a hard-top shade, while the bow features a secondary sun lounger, much like on the Magellano 53.
Below decks, the 66 will boast a full-beam master suite, VIP cabin and guest cabin, while a fourth cabin with bunk beds can be fitted into the utility room.
Power comes from a pair of Volvo Penta D13 diesel engines, generating 800hp each, for an estimated top speed of 22 knots.
However, Magellano 66 owners are far more likely to trim this back to 9 knots, at which speed the range increases to an impressive 900 miles.
Prices are likely to be confirmed at the Cannes Boat Show, where the Azimut Magellano 66 will get its public debut.
