Newport location will be the US home of Azimut’s Magellano series
The newest MarineMax office opened on Bowen’s Wharf in Newport, RI, on July 16, bringing the retailer’s many brands to the yachting capital of the Northeast. MarineMax is the US dealer for Azimut-Benetti, and as such is pleased to add to its already impressive lineup the new and innovative Magellano 50, which Azimut introduced in Genoa in 2010. Magellanos (see Yachts International April 2010 for an article on the Magellano 74, the flagship of the Magellano line) are designed for all-weather navigation and boaters “who are not obsessed with the speed of the journey, but the true pleasure of being on the water,” says Andrew Schneider, US Brand Manager for Azimut Yachts at MarineMax. The Magellano 50 debuts in the United States at the Newport Boat Show in early September and will be at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show October 27 to 31. With its impressive range sizes and models, including the very new Magellano, Azimut-Benetti has been a big part of MarineMax—also dealers for brands such as Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Cabo and Hatteras—for more than 11 years.
