The storage throughout the Azimut Magellano 66 is exceptional – if you need any more, you should probably buy a support vessel
The modern exterior styling is by Cor D Rover, while Azimut and Pierluigi Ausonio were responsible for the dual mode hull – different from preceding Magellano hulls in that it sports two chines and is less rounded than previous forms.
If the intention of the Magellano 66 was to bridge the gap between so called ‘serious’ trawlers from the likes of Grand Banks and Fleming, and the more avant-garde trawlers from the high volume production builders, then the Italian company has succeeded brilliantly.
First rate engineering and construction underpins the 66’s serious side, while the fashionable (although slightly too subdued for my tastes) walnut interior feels far removed from the styling inside the more venerable rivals.
What really sets the 66 apart though, and makes it a serious long distance contender or a great holiday home in equal measure, is the boat’s spectacular level of storage inside and out.
It would take a whole report’s worth of words to list it all, but suffice to say that every nook and cranny has been utilised, and whatever deck locker or wardrobe or drawer you delve into, it’s invariably larger than you might have hoped.
