During the Genoa Boat Show 2023, the jury of the Design Innovation Award honoured the best projects that embody excellence in the yachting industry by combining innovation and design.

During the awards ceremony held last Friday at the Palazzo della Borsa in Genoa, Azimut’s new Magellano 60 was named winner in the ‘Motor Yachts over 14m LH’ category.

The Azimut Magellano 60 was awarded the prize by the jury, made up of national and international experts from various sectors, “for its Dual Mode hull that allows optimisation of consumption and emissions, and for the living solutions that offer navigation that is attentive to the quality of life on board”.

The Magellano 60 embodies the desire to offer owners a yacht that combines an explorer’s soul with an elegant and timeless aesthetic and with a conscious approach to the issue of environmental sustainability.

The yacht a crossover designed for owners who love long voyages full of adventure and charm. This 60-footer stands out for the large spaces on board, generous without compromising the elegance of Ken Freivokh’s lines. The cockpit is configured as a natural extension of the large lounge on the Main Deck. The stern transforms into a terrace capped with a transparent parapet that creates an Infinity Terrace overlooking the water, offering a navigation experience in complete harmony with nature and the sea.

The crossover soul of the Magellano 60 is also through the high-efficiency Dual Mode semi-planing hull, which allows navigation at low speeds in total comfort and handles higher speeds by attenuating the impact of the waves and optimizing consumption and emissions.

Furthermore, the Magellano 60 is the model chosen by Azimut for the first voyage powered by HVOlution biofuel, produced by Eni Sustainable Mobility with 100% renewable raw materials. The tests carried out by Azimut in the summer of 2023 recorded exceptional results in terms of compatibility and performance.

The combination of the Dual Mode hull and biofuel has allowed a well-to-wake reduction in CO2 emissions of more than 80% compared to a yacht of comparable size powered by fossil diesel.
