Azimut’s New Magellano 66
The Italian builder has revealed its new Magellano 66, which boosts a renewed long-range series already bolstered by the 25 Metri and 30 Metri models.
Azimut has shared photos and details of its new Magellano 66, which debuted at this year’s Venice Boat Show and features in-house exterior and interior design along with a double-chine Dual Mode hull developed with P.L.A.N.A. (Pierluigi Ausonio Naval Architecture).
The Magellano 66 follows this year’s launch of the series-flagship 30 Metri, the 25 Metri unveiled in late 2020 and the entry-level Magellano 43, offering a wide range of models from 13-30m.

The new Magellano 66 has an overall length of 66ft 1in (20.15m) and a beam of 17ft 10in (5.54m), and offers up to four cabins for eight guests plus a crew cabin aft.
Fitted with twin 850hp MAN i6 engines, the yacht has a top speed of up to 23 knots, cruising speed of 19 knots and displacement cruising speed of 10-12 knots, with a 4,500-litre fuel capacity supporting a long range.
Azimut has used carbon-fibre lamination in the flybridge, aft platform and hard top (optional) to reduce weight, which combines with the second-generation Dual Modehull to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 20 per cent at speeds from 15-22 knots compared to regular hard-chine hulls.
As such, Azimut says the Magellano 66 joins its “family of low-emission yachts”, which now represents 50 per cent of its whole range.

Outdoor areas include a large flybridge, which features a C-shaped sofa and a dining table to port, a full-width sunbathing area forward of the helm, and a clear aft area that can include loose furniture, while an American bar is an option.
The foredeck has a C-shaped seating area with a table, as well as lots of storage space. The aft cockpit has a large C-shaped sofa and large table for alfresco dining, as well as an “infinity terrace” with a clear glass parapet offering a view of the water.
The interior is illuminated by extensive glazed surfaces and features curved lines and a refined palette of neutral colour tones. The main deck is offered in two layouts, including an open-space version with galley and helm station partially in view due to the use of low furnishings. The Navetta layout has a more formal separation between the living area and the galley and helm station.
The saloon features a comfortable lounge aft of a formal dining area furnished with a rectangular table and six upholstered chairs, while forward is the galley to port of the lower helm station.
On the lower deck, the full-beam master cabin is midships and has large windows and spacious wardrobes, while the VIP cabin is in the bow. In-between is a twin cabin with en-suite bathroom to starboard, while to port is the option of a bunk-bed cabin or a functional area such as a pantry or storage room.
