New Model: Azimut 76 Magellano

The Italians have always been important innovators in the yachting industry, and Azimut since its inception has been a centre protagonist in this role from the South European peninsula.  The Magellano line from Azimut was presented in 2009 with the 74, and this new 76 updates this very important model with some interesting changes.  When the 74 Magellano was presented it represented an important statement from Azimut, and this was an Explorer yacht with the flare of the Mediterranean yacht outside and inside.  Three years to the launch of the first explorer Magellano 74, Azimut updates it, making important visible changes to its important explorer yacht style debutant.  Apart of a longer hull mostly thanks to an up down hydraulic bathing platform aft the new 76 has changed other elements from new hull window shapes, no tender garage aft for a larger crew area, a revised main deck with astern galley, and a lower deck with a standard four double cabins layout.  Power is twin MAN 1000hp with a 22 knots max, and a high speed cruise of 17 knots.
