Fuel for thought

In an effort to standardise the engineering installation, Azimut likes to stick with a single engine option, in this case Volvo’s D13 800hp diesels.

Those pushed our lightly loaded Magellano 66 to 23 knots, so don’t anticipate any more. More importantly, its sturdily constructed dual mode hull is happy to cruise at any speed from 10 knots through to 20 knots.

Foredeck seating is a useful extra socialising space

The surprise was finding that the hull is so fuel efficient throughout the range. So at 9 knots, say, it burnt 23% less fuel than a full displacement Nordhavn 63, yet at its 18 knot fast cruising speed it also consumed 20% less fuel than a deep-vee Fairline Squadron 65 does at the same speed.

A full-beam master cabin is the star of the accommodation

That’s great news because it allows owners to slow to a crawl for long distance cruising (circa 1,000 miles @ 9kn) but also to nip along fast enough to ignore adverse tides and a strong headwind.

Verdict

Overflowing with stowage inside and out, sturdily built and well engineered, fuel efficient at all speeds – but glamorous with it, the Magellano 66 will satisfy long distance cruisers and image conscious motor boaters alike
