Magellano 25 Metri - A masterpiece of art and marine engineering from Azimut Yachts

by Azimut Yachts 5 Aug 2020 04:19 PDT

Azimut Yachts presents Magellano 25 Metri, a yacht created in partnership with the internationally renowned artist and architect Vincenzo De Cotiis, who brings his unmistakable signature style to the interiors, while Ken Freivokh is behind the timeless elegance of the chic and sophisticated exterior lines.

The yacht also makes extensive use of carbon fiber and draws on the latest technological developments, including an active air sanitizing system based on a NASA patent and the Hotel Mode option that guarantees prolonged stops at anchor at zero emission. Furthermore to offer long-range cruising in the utmost comfort and safety, even in rough seas, Magellano 25 has been designed with a special fuel-efficient Dual Mode hull.

Interior décor

The partnership with Vincenzo De Cotiis springs from the brand's desire to reach a new milestone by creating for the first time ever a yacht that isn't a container for art, but a work of art in its own right.

One of the points of contact with the designer, a leading proponent of collectible art on the international scene, is a shared interest in fiberglass, as an essential construction material for Azimut Yachts and one of the favourite material of the artist. On this yacht fiberglass is given new life as a key element of the design.

For Magellano 25 Metri, De Cotiis used a special type of resin and thanks to an elaborate artisanal process, the result of multiple layers and embellished with a bronze powder, he has given life to surfaces of parchment colour, characterized by a pleasant clouded effect and inclusions that in somehow recall those typical of some precious stones.

The "artistic fiberglass" is joined by other materials and types of wood to create a highly appealing play of contrasts: brushed Verde Alpi marble, dark walnut wood, carpet, polished brass, lacquered wood and ribbed wood.

The furnishings feature flowing shapes and a lot of effort has been put into creating a sense of continuity expressed by seamless, curving lines.

Interior layout

The most strikingly original setting is the huge saloon in which De Cotiis strives to increase the perception of depth. Designed to offer a view of the sea from any point, the space is no longer confined by a classic rectangular floor plan and is flooded throughout with natural light. The dining table can be arranged lengthwise and the living area is based on the concept of organic geometry, with different shapes sofas that offer different depths.

The interior furniture recalls the shape of the dry bar outside creating an indoor-outdoor connection in order to get the sensation of a unified space overlooking the sea. Still on the Main Deck, the stairway is clad with mirrors to "dematerialise" it and, by reflecting the light, the view of the sea became an inner part of the yacht.

Artificial light is a key element, with a lighting system designed to create a soft, warm mood. The carefully thought out light design created by the artist involves not only lamps and classic ceiling spotlights, but also and even the sofa bottoms to give the furniture the appearance of "being suspended".

In the night area on the Lower Deck there are four cabins, including two VIPs, one double and one with sliding double beds.

In the owner's suite, thanks to the inclined position of the walk-in closet, the space extends out, while the mirror coating makes the volume disappear and reflects the light and the starboard panorama, creating highly suggestive changing optical effects.

All the fabrics on board are by Loro Piana Interiors.

The crew quarters are independent, with direct access from the galley to avoid interference with guests' movements and ensure a high level of privacy. Magellano 25 Metri is also one of the few yacht in its category to have direct access from the internal wheelhouse, located in a raised position on the main deck, and the external one on the fly so to facilitate the work of the captain and crews.

Exterior styling

Ken Freivokh offers his own personal take on exterior styling based on the concept of timelessness, driven by the desire to create an object of evergreen beauty and appeal, far from fleeting fashions and passing trends. The central element around which the entire design revolves is the fully-glazed superstructure, created to convey the feeling of a penthouse overlooking the sea. The standout features include the non-slip surfaces on the transom and the retro-style windows in the hull.

The yacht's silhouette is given even more personality by the slatted teak panels on either side aft of the deckhouse. The elegant spiral staircase leads up to the Fly Deck, where the hard top is supported by a minimalist central mast. The almost vertical bow underscores the remarkable seaworthiness of this model.

The bow area can be experienced differently depending on the various times of the day as a sunbeds and lounge area, while the stern, thanks to a pivoting hatch mechanism, offers the charm of an Infinity Terrace from which to contemplate the charm of the sunset without any visual impediment.

The first unit's hull is burnished brass in colour with a mustard beauty stripe.

Carbon Tech Generation and cutting-edge on-board technology

Magellano 25 Metri is a full member of the Carbon Tech Generation and represents another milestone in Azimut Yachts' pioneering research into the use of a material that offers some undisputed benefits: thanks to a targeted use it is possible to expand the volumes on board while maintaining excellent levels of stability.

The yacht, which also features various solutions devised by Azimut Yachts' Innovation Lab as part of its ECS - Enhanced Cruising Solutions programme - is designed and built according to the highest standards applied in the sector and is covered by the HTS - High Technical Standard declaration issued by the shipyard.

The Magellano 25 Metri can also be fitted with the new "hotel mode" system that allows the main on-board services to function longer when the boat is at anchor, without having to start the generators. Another innovative feature is the BCool active sanitizing system also used by NASA on spacecraft.

There has also been a concerted effort to reduce noise and vibration and so guarantee the highest levels of comfort; the owner's suite is set up as a floating capsule and the introduction of an elastic joint between motors and inverters prevents vibrations generated by the propeller axis from propagating inside the boat.

The Dual Mode hull, designed by the firm led by Pierluigi Ausonio, ensures safe and comfortable cruising even in rough seas. The double shaped chine joint with a skeg reduces consumption at different cruising speeds and cushions wave impact. As these features show, Magellano 25 Metri has been designed for long-range cruising even in unfavourable sea and wind conditions.

The yacht is fitted with two MAN engines rated 1,400 horsepower each (or alternatively 1,550 HP), with V-Drive in-line transmission. Stabilization is provided by a Humpree electric fin system. The yacht has a top speed of around 24/25 knots and a cruising speed of 21 knots.
