Magellano 66 is built on the same foundation that makes all Magellano Collection yachts so special: the “Dual Mode” hull. The goal is to offer a versatile boat that provides a comfortable ride even in moderate to rough seas. Accomplishing this required developing keels that were profoundly different from those found on planing hulls. Magellano hulls soften the impact of waves, cutting through them with the vertical bow.
The main deck is all on one level; it has a large sliding door facing out over the cockpit all the way to the bow where the pilot station and galley are located. The main deck features elegance, functionality and a breath‐taking view of the horizon. Highlights include a large L‐shaped sofa facing an impressive bar cabinet, up to 50’’ TV cabinet, and a dining table oriented across beam.
On the lower deck, there is a large owner suite at full beam. The spacious quarters are bathed in natural light for an elegant but also practical space with ample stowage. The owner has all the space they’ve always wanted with his and her spacious closet, chest of drawers, vanity, and an additional huge storage area under the bed.
The closets in the VIP and guest cabins receive the same attention. Both cabins offer something extra because, as everyone says, there is never enough space on board. The fourth cabin is designed as a utility room but, upon request, can be outfitted as a cabin with bunk beds. The washer and dryer are conveniently located along the corridor.
With two Volvo Penta D13 800 HP diesel engines, Magellano’s performance is perfectly in line with the philosophy of a modern Long Range yacht. Travelling at 9 knots in full displacement mode, it has a range of over 900 miles (including a 10% reserve). The double chine Dual Mode hull provides a purposeful shape that optimizes cruising both in displacement and planing modes, for a cruising speed of 16‐18 knots and a maximum speed of 22 knots.
