Magellano 66 is the last step in the evolution of the concept of “dual mode” hull born in 2009 with the Magellano 76. It is not one shuttle, nor a trawler or a displacement hull. But, and here’s the “trick”, it is not even a true displacement hull. The concept of “dual mode” has been optimized and on the 66 the hull is slightly longer at the waterline, offers more stability and improves performance at faster speeds high.
In navigation, the Magellano 66 interprets the idea of the boat very well from the most souls. With a view to maximum autonomy, you can travel, displacing, at 9 knots; or you can you can walk at 14/15 knots, in what is the true cruising-economic speed of the boat (which begins to detach the wave aft at ten knots); but you can go a fastest (at 90% of maximum rpm) at 19 knots; or you can push yourself to full throttle, reaching 24 knots
If the external lines are very original, inside everything is much more traditional. The watchword is functionality for a boat that, like the first sensation you get when you get on board is an interesting encounter between a traditional fly, and a sailing hull. The strengths are: definitely the large central hall which is all on one level, from the bow to aft there are no steps and the cockpit becomes an integral part of the indoor living area; the large amount of space available for stowage, altogether 14 cubic meters; then there is an excellent study of circulation on board, with the galley and pilot areas functionally well separated from the dinette (which does not happen on any other 66 ‘on the market) with the crew that can access it from the side, from the gangways.
Among the cunning that we liked there is the opening in the kitchen behind the pilot that allows you to have a good view towards the stern when mooring. The lower deck, the sleeping area, has the cabin as its strong point stern owner. It makes very good use of all five and a half meters of maximum beam, offers a great view of the sea from the two windows side and is furnished with a very pleasant elegance, not exhibited, welcoming. There is also an abundant, classic guest cabin in the bow “V” design and peninsula bed, and two other guest cabins (one with side-by-side beds and one with overlapping bunks). Overall the places beds are many and comfortable (there are also two berths for the crew with separate aft access).
For people who want to cruise further afield, without giving up the comfort and elegance of Azimut yachts, but whose real destination is the carefree frivolity of the journey itself. Magellano is always gentle and safe in navigation and has a limited fuel consumption thanks to the innovative Dual Mode hull and its wide range of cruising speeds. The interior spaces were designed for long stays on board, with welcoming living areas and spacious cabins.
