Azimut Magellano 50 (2011-)

Brief Summary

Azimut is electrifying the yachting world with its new Magellano line of fuel-efficient long-range cruisers, including this 51' 4" (15.64 m) Magellano 50. Introduced at the Genoa Boat Show in October, she is the mid-sized entry in the new series (a 74 is already available, and a 40 is in the works). Not only is the 50 a radical departure visually from Azimut's Med-style cruisers, noted for their speed, sleek styling and sybaritic accommodations, but it also has something few other yachts at this level have -- the option of hybrid power: Azimut's Easy Hybrid system adds twin 23-kW electric motors to the Magellano 50's twin Cummins MerCruiser QSB 5.9 diesels, and will move the yacht at up to 8 knots under battery power alone, in near-silence, says the company.
