Project: Azimut 76 Magellano

Azimut presents the new 76 Magellano with a World wide presentation upcoming in the next Genoa boat show.  The new 76 is a further development of the 2009 acclaimed Ken Freivokh designed 74 which also the first Magellano.  An extension to the appreciated Bill Dixon dual mode hull and total redesign of the interior from the main to the lower deck characterizes the new 76.  Some important changes are; astern galley on the main deck now located to starboard instead of port side, bunk fourth cabin, two crew cabins with removal of lower galley, and reduction of tender garage space.  Fuel capacity has also been increased in the 76 Magellano by over 300 liters to 7500, with a loss coming of the same ammount in water.  Power is twin MAN 1000hp which should give the quite heavy 64 tons loaded a max 22 knots speed, and 17 cruise.
