Italian boatbuilder Azimut-Benetti is certainly making waves with a refreshing new design that sets itself apart from more traditionally inspired designs. Our editors applaud the innovation and technical advances of the new Magellano 43, the entry-level model in Azimut’s Magellano long-range cruiser line, which includes the 74 and 50. Available in both flybridge and hardtop models, the 43 can sleep up to five depending on the chosen layout. On the flybridge model, guests have plenty of space to lounge in the sun, with additional options available on the main deck aft or the large sunpad on the foredeck. The 43’s hull has proven as efficient at a traditional trawler 7-knot speed as it is at 18 knots. Though the efficient hull has a range of 800 miles at 9 knots, she can also reach top speeds of 18 to 22 knots, depending on the power selected for her two 5.9-litre Cummins QSB engines.
Also on display this year are three other Miami debuts: the outboard Atlantis Verve, the Azimut 54 and the Azimut 55S.
