The fifth model in Azimut’s Magellano range of trawler yachts, the Azimut Magellano 66 is set to debut this summer. The 66-foot boat features what Azimut calls a “dual-mode hull,” with double chines, a wave-cutting vertical bow, and substantial forward volume for smoother and more efficient operation. Powering the vessel are two 800 hp Volvo diesel engines, which allow it to cruise at 9 knots when traveling under full displacement and between 16 and 18 knots when planing, with a top speed of 22 knots. At its cruising speed, the Magellano has a range of 900 miles, which is substantial for a boat this size.
Another noteworthy aspect of the boat is its interior, which is spacious for a 66-foot vessel, affording plenty of room to relax and socialize. The main deck is equipped with a large sliding door at the bow, separating the saloon from the pilot station and galley. The style of the main saloon is modern yet refined, with wood paneling and cream-colored furnishings. It includes a bar, TV cabinet, dining table, an L-shaped sofa, and long banks of windows providing sweeping vistas. The lower deck houses a full-beam master suite, two VIP cabins, and a fourth cabin that can be configured as a pantry. The boat sleeps as many as eight guests and two crew.
Exterior spaces on the main deck of the Magellano 66 include a padded lounging area at the bow and a shaded seating and dining area aft. The exterior highlight is the flybridge, which is especially large for a boat this size. It features a dining table, a sun pad, and enough space for lounge chairs, as well as an awning that provides welcome shade for long stints at sea. (azimutyachts.com)
