Azimut Magellano 74

Overview

As Naval Architects for Azimut’s Magellano 74, we worked as part of a team that also featured internationally renowned designer Ken Freivokh who was responsible for the interior and exterior styling. Dixon Yacht design provided the Naval Architecture and the production engineering. Most notable of our work on this yacht was the hull design which involved many hours of design tank testing and the use of free running radio controlled scale models, the result is a motor yacht which satisfies two roles in one; efficient cruising at semi displacement speeds and comfortable and economic cruising at displacement speeds. Setting new standards for large motor yachts, the hulls lower resistance provides better fuel economy and longer range while her excellent directional stability allows her to operate at high speeds in large following seas, without broaching or bow diving.
