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.
