Exploring the possibilities of ocean travel with Azimut Magellano 25m

The pocket-superyacht Magellano 25M from Azimut Yachts may be small in size, but it more than makes up for it in spirit.

Designed to offer her owners a luxurious and timeless travel experience across the open waters, she builds on the foundation of her processors while setting the standard for the Magellano 30M, 60M and 66M. Her classic hull form, with a vertical bow and glazed superstructure, resembles a penthouse on the water, which unsurprisingly was a source of inspiration for her exterior designer, Ken Freivokh. Her hull is an unusual yet soothing blue-green metallic, deviating from traditional yacht colours adding to its distinctive charm. Freivokh, known for his work on the iconic 87m Maltese Falcon from Perini Navi, previously began working on the Magellano line some 14 years ago and was tasked with devising a new ethos for the line. Applying his expertise to this 25.2-metre superyacht, he created a unique design that seamlessly combines form and function.

The perfect size yacht for a family or couple ready to spend extended periods of time out on the waters, every inch of space has been utilised to its fullest despite her limited size. For example, her aft deck offers a seating area with a dedicated dry bar and worktop space, with a hydraulic table that changes from coffee to dining with the touch of a bottom. Her flybridge, accessible via a graceful spiral staircase, is equipped with its own bar and kitchen and shaded by a carbon fibre hardtop, creating a space for both leisure and entertainment.

The main saloon, an expansive area for a yacht of this size, embodies the concept of openness. With doors leading to the aft deck and swim platform, its open layout brings the outdoors in, creating a seamless flow between spaces. By the swim platform, an electrically operated deck extension can be used for easy tender access or to create an infinity terrace for lounging under the sun. At the bow of the main deck, there is another space that can be used for sunbathing, lounging or resting in privacy.

Her interior, the work of Italian artist and architect Vincenzo De Cotiis, offers a distinct 1950s flavour, with a blend of off-white textures, marble, and velour, creating an atmosphere that is both bright and sophisticated. Available in different styles and finishes, her interior layout is available in a few variations, with one seeing option, the pilothouse and a fully closed-off galley located at the bow, with direct access to the crew quarter, providing more privacy to her owners while ensuring the crew can work uninterruptedly. Accommodation on the lower deck is generous for up to eight, with a full-beam owner’s suite amidships, two VIP suites, and a twin guest cabin, all furnished with luxurious Loro Piana linens and Bose entertainment systems. Independent of its interior option, the Magellano 25 Metri offers such a level of comfort that it’s easy to overlook its primary purpose: embarking on significant journeys with passengers and crew.

Equipped with twin MAN V-12 diesel engines, the Azimut Magellano 25M has a top speed of up to 25 knots, with a range of an impressive 1,500 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 9.5 knots.
