The new Magellano 50 from Azimut Yachts (shown right) made her debut at the Genoa International Boat Show in October. Designed with an eye on the environment, the Magellano 50 offers Azimut’s Easy Hybrid drive system. The Magellano 50’s twin 425-horsepower Cummins common rail diesels give her a top speed of 22 knots, with a cruising speed between 18 and 19 knots (according to the company). But, if you don’t want to burn your fuel, the optional Easy Hybrid drive system allows for the vessel to be propelled by two 20 kW electric motors, that can provide an eco-friendly cruising speed of 8 knots. Also, when the electric motors are engaged, the sound level during operation drops approximately 80 percent (according to the builder).
