Azimut Atlantis 50, Magellano 53 and Azimut 80 all to debut in Cannes and Genoa

Italy’s Azimut Yachts is heading into the autumn boat show season with three big launches – the Azimut 80, Magellano 53 and Azimut Atlantis 50.

Sadly none of the boats will be at Southampton, with Azimut instead choosing to unveil the boats at Cannes in September and then Genoa in October.

The smallest of the trio is the Azimut Atlantis 50, a boat that marks the start of a new naming convention for the Atlantis range, with the insertion of the parent company’s brand.

In the press release announcing the change, Azimut grandly stated that Atlantis “is now mature enough to enter into the House of Azimut, with all its rights and privileges”.

The 53ft sportscruiser will come in open and coupe guises, with power coming from twin Cummins 600hp diesels, which should get this slick-looking boat up to 33 knots flat out.

A new Magellano will also be presented to the public, the 53. This model replaces the well-established 50 with the extra length allowing for a ‘terrace’ cockpit of 13 square metres.

Expect the usual muted tones inside, and very competent seakeeping from the Bill Dixon dual-mode hull. Twin 600hp engines will give the Magellano 53 a top speed of 20 knots.

The final new autumn offering from the Italian yard is the 80, which is distinctly Azimut with its masses of glazing in the superstructure and flybridge fins.

The pocket superyacht will come with a choice of four interior styles – Portofino, Dolce Vita, Firenze and Riviera – with floor-to-ceiling windows in the dining area the standout feature.

The full-beam owner’s cabin will benefit from expansive topside windows as well as a Jacuzzi and central glassed-in shower stall in the wide bathroom.

In the engineroom, twin MAN 1,550hp engines will provide the grunt up to a maximum speed of 29 knots.
