New Model: Azimut 66 Magellano

Consistency is always key in a project, and Azimut since the launch of the 74 Magellano in 2009 has made it an important element for the range which today with the launch of this new 66 features a total of five models which start at 43 and end at 76 feet.  Since fuel prices started going up in 2005 we have seen loads of dual purpose hulls from various makers, trying to capture the right balance of owner operating enjoyment of the journey and the arrival to destination. A big challenge which Azimut overcomes thanks to consistency in style and technical element and the expansion of the Magellano range. The new 66 is an important arrival to the range, which designer Cor D. Rover has managed to give a unique important identity in the exterior looks since he designed the second model of the range, the now stopped in production 50.  Looking at details in the technical data one also notices how the Magellano project which with its first 74 model featured an international identity of designers, today is an all Italian affair, with Pierluigi Ausonio designing the semi planning dual mode hull of the 66 Magellano.
