When it comes to romance, everyone finds a particular set of characteristics or attributes more attractive than others. Some prefer tall, brunette and athletic, while others find short, blonde and musically talented more appealing. The same is true for boats. Some attributes, however, don’t blend with others, for example, fuel efficiency and speed. Trawlers are traditionally known for the cruising range they provide yet are limited in terms of how fast they’re able to arrive at the destination. Azimut—the Italian builder known for its sexy sport cruisers—recognized a gap in their product offering for longer-range cruising and introduced the Magellano Series 74 in 2009. The Magellano 50 Flybridge was introduced soon after in 2010, and the newest addition, the Magellano 43 Flybridge, made its U.S. debut at the 2013 Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show. Azimut calls their Magellano Series “the new Italian long-range.” I call it the perfect match.
