Projects: Magnum 70, Magnum 50

To be launched in September for the Fort Lauderdale show is a new Magnum 70 designed by Italian architects Lazzarini Pickering. Equipped with twin 2400HP MTU diesels coupled to Arneson surface drives, this new Kevlar and carbon fiber composite hull will reach top speeds of close to 70 MPH. Interiors are custom built to the owner’s specifications and can accommodate up to three double cabins. For the first hull of this new model, Magnum ordered beautifully designed interiors from Italy for the client. We gave details about the new 50 replacing the Bestia model last November, but being ready to be launched for the Fort Lauderdale show, here we go again with some more information direct from Magnum. Designed by Luiz de Basto, the new 50 will have a sleek and aggressive deck. She will be equipped with twin Caterpillar engines of 1800HP coupled to surface drive, this new Magnum will reach speeds of close to 75 MPH with unbelievable acceleration. As usual to all of any new Magnum, it will be custom built to clients’ specifications. Both of the new models should be available for testing just before the Fort Lauderdale boat show, so if you want the best in a high performance sport yacht, I will be the first in the line to try any of these untamed sea beast of performance and safety. Present at the show in Fort Lauderdale will also be an 80 model, hull no.2 for the flagship of the legendary USA builder was launched in February of 2008 and presented officially during the last Miami show.
