The Magellano 50 motor yacht will be on display for the first time in US at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, from October 27-31, 2011. The Azimut Magellano 50 motor yacht has enjoyed an incredibly successful year, in fact, just after the official presentation at Genova 2010 Boat Show, it has been sold in 5 continents. She is the mid-sized model in the new Magellano range, created by Azimut for all those yachtsmen who are seeking an increasingly authentic cruising experience, where love of the sea and the pleasures of boating are the starring players.
The first 50 motor yacht that can sail continuously, everywhere, and with the greatest respect for the environment, thanks to her NMMA Certification (Class CE A approval) and, Rina Green Plus class notation. She is the first of the New Classic vessels to offer an abundance of light and large windows throughout the lower deck; and absolutely the first 50 footer to offer an outdoor salon in the bow and four alternative layouts below deck, responding perfectly to the owner’s requirements.
Below is a video of the Azimut Magellano 50 motor yacht underway.
A high level of eco-compatibility, safety, long range, easy handling and fuel efficiency, top comfort for extended staying on board and a natural exquisite taste: these are the characteristics of this innovative craft, where for the first time, modern style and seafaring tradition have come together in perfect harmony.
For many years now, Azimut Yachts has considered the quest for optimum eco-compatibility as one of its top priorities. For this reason, being the world’s first shipyard to achieve RINA Green Plus notation in the mid-sized vessel segment is an exceptional triumph for the company’s design team. The Magellano 50 meets all the requisites demanded: from her low emission engines (the Magellano 50 is powered by two brand-new latest generation 425 mHP Cummins common rail engines, with electronic fuel-consumption management) to her high-performance hull and propellers; from the anti-UV film applied to reduce heat exchange through the glass surfaces to the tracking of consumption and tank levels, with a charging and discharging log; and from the LED lighting to the infusion lamination of the principal fibreglass components, a procedure carried out in the Azimut shipyard in Avigliana, which has been awarded the ISO 14001 Environment standard certificate.
Designed to be experienced The dimensions of the external area spaces are surprising. Starting from the stern, the Magellano 50 has a cockpit partially projecting over the bathing platform with a living surface of more than 12 square yard equipped with a C bench and a table for 6 persons. Wide lateral walkways go to the bow section where a second open-air lounge area is situated. With the tender housed on the bathing platform, the whole fly bridge is at the disposal of life onboard, with a large lunch zone equipped with a mobile bar and a separate sunbathing area. The central mast, apart from supporting the antennas, accommodates a shower and the stereo speakers, whilst the base acts as added storage space.
On the main bridge, the two sliding access doors slide on a guide that permits complete opening. The galley is positioned strategically halfway between the cockpit and the interior dinette to offer maximum convenience onboard. It is an open space environment to be lived in a family and informal way. The C-shaped sofa of the lunch area is slightly raised up and positioned to the side of the pilot’s seat to share the pleasure of navigating with the pilot.
Storage zones placed all over the bridge and an extra area of 64 US GAL has been recovered in a useful locker integrated into the ceiling. The lower deck is a masterpiece of design, and is the only one in the world offered in motor yachts of this length that allows the owner to choose between 4 options. In the spacious area between the master cabin, located midships, and the VIP cabin in the bow, it is possible to choose the studio and guest cabin configuration, or studio and second dinette, or a second dinette and guest cabin, or, finally, a studio and separate laundry area, with washer and dryer, additional storage space or an extra folding bed. This possibility of customizing the vessel strengthens the bond between the owner and his Magellano 50 yacht.
Light reaches the lower deck through multiple openings, filtering down from the windscreen left in view and also from the large windows that are present in all environments. Also natural ventilation is ensured in each area by portholes that can be opened on both walls. The master suite is midships, equipped with double wardrobes, drawers, additional lockers underneath the bed and vanity zone and private bathroom with a large separate shower cabin. The second queen-size bed cabin, in the bow, features an incredible luminosity from a large skylight and two comfortable armchairs. Interior design: a modern timeless style
To speak of a modern contemporary style, but also timeless would seem a paradox. But the design and atmosphere created by Azimut’s Style Department for the Magellano 50 motor yacht suggests this reflection. Wood is used in profusion but without excess to avoid weighing down the environments. The essence is Canaletto walnut with vertical grain. Solid wood finishes the furniture and the tops are finished in Saffiano leather, whilst natural fibre textiles in light tints decorate and finish the seating (all covers can be removed for cleaning). The shape of the furniture suggests memories of the past without nostalgia, conferring a decisive personality but always discreet. On the lower deck is waist-high wooden panelling that decorates the bulkheads and walls of each environment.
Handrails, perfectly integrated into the furnishings, are embellished with leather inserts. The attention to the environment that permeates the whole project also influenced the choice of interior decoration where, apart from utilising natural textiles, leathers were introduced that was not treated with chrome.
On the first unit, the fabrics used for the interiors come exclusively from the collection of Loro Piana Interiors. Timeless elegance and the best natural materials (linen, cotton and cashmere) are the outstanding features of the products from this range.
The Magellano range by Azimut Yachts is the latest product of the great innovative capacity, design expertise and manufacturing technology that make Azimut Yachts a leader in the world yachting industry. A mere year since the launch of the first model, the Magellano 50 will take her place beside the larger Magellano 74 and will soon be followed by a third model in the series, with the objective of developing a Magellano range in a few short years, which is suited to the diverse requirements of owners.
