Azimut's Work of Art: The Magellano 25 Metri
Last month, prolific Italian shipbuilder Azimut Yachts revealed the ‘flagship of all flagships’ of the Magellano Collection. The yard has now followed up this impressive benchmark with the Magellano 25 Metri, which although smaller than her flagship sister, more than lives up to Azimut's scrupulous standards of artistic design and innovation.
The 25 Metri is the product of a collaboration between true industry greats. Azimut Yachts has partnered up with celebrated artist and architect Vincenzo de Cotiis on the interiors and renowned designer Ken Freivokh on the exteriors, resulting in nothing short of an artistic masterpiece. Extensive use of fiberglass forms a key component of the Magellano 25 Metri’s design, combined seamlessly with rich materials such as brushed Verde Alpi marble, dark walnut wood and polished brass to create an impressive contrast. These efforts serve to seamlessly provide for an intricate aesthetic which is at once classic and contemporary.
The yacht also draws on cutting-edge technological developments in keeping with Azimut’s demanding standards for innovation. These include an active air sanitizing system based on a NASA patent, and a ‘Hotel Mode’ option offering prolonged stops at anchor at zero emission. Coupled with a fuel-efficient Dual Mode hull to offer long-range cruising in comfort and safety, the Magellano 25 reflects the most significant desires of the modern day yacht owner.
De Cotiis has effectively achieved a sense of depth and volume onboard the 25 Metri, most strikingly in the huge saloon offering sweeping sea views and plenty of natural light. The crew’s quarters are totally independent, a rare feature on a yacht of this size, and the living areas are intelligently based on the concept of organic geometry to offer a sense of varying depths.
The interior systems of the Magellano 25 also make a concerted effort to reduce noise and vibration. Guaranteeing the highest levels of comfort onboard this home-at-sea, the owner’s suite is set up as a floating capsule with an elastic join between motors and inverters to prevent propeller vibrations from resonating through.
