Azimut Magellano 43 HT at Düsseldorf Boot 2013 Exhibition
At the Boot 2013 exhibition in Düsseldorf (an extremely important trade fair in one of the largest exhibition areas in Europe), Azimut Yachts and Atlantis present three new yachts for the season to the North European public: Azimut 54, and the award-winning Magellano 43 HT and Atlantis 34.
AZIMUT Magellano 43 is a new model for the upcoming boating season. Its 13 metres offer all the advantages of Magellano collection craft: smooth sailing in any sea conditions and excellent autonomy. It can carry up to 1,680 litres of fuel, enough for long trips at 9-10 knots. The new Magellano 43 HT is the first model in the Magellano collection with a hard top rather than a fly top, making it ideal for inland sailing, due also to its lower height and folding mast, which allow it to sail under most fixed bridges on rivers and canals.
The four windows on the hard top, two of which can be opened, make open air sailing a real pleasure. The dual mode hull, with its round-lined keel with side runners and a spacious bow section that ends with a vertical prow, reduces pitching making sailing comfortable even in rough conditions, as well as being even more efficient – and therefore consuming less fuel – at low and medium speeds compared to a planning hull. The living area on the Magellano is perfect for socialising, with a spacious entertaining area as well as the owner’s controls. Besides two cabins for owner and guests, both en suite with separate shower, a third cabin can be set up with a single bed or used as storage space.
