The Absolute Navetta 52 arrives as the entry model to the Navetta range, but it’s no small fry. A clever combination of space, efficiency and refinement completes a very attractive package from Absolute Yachts. So the WSB team hop on board to take a closer look at the new arrival.
The first model will be available starting in the summer of 2015, but the design of the Magellano 66 started long ago. It 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.
Italian boat builder Azimut Yachts has showcased the new Magellano 76, presented at Genoa International Boat Show. An evolution of the Magellano 74, the first model in the Collection of modern and sophisticated long range Azimut Yachts, which in 2009 wanted to once again renew the offer market. The design goals behind the Magellano models are autonomy, the maximum cruising comfort even at low speeds and the freedom to go at higher speeds when necessary.
One word, Simple; the new mid-size Italian long range by Azimut Yachts continues to extend what is fast becoming the greenest motor cruisers available. Preceded by the innovative scope of the 74, and the commercial success of the 50, the new 43 is the newest addition to the Magellano Collection.
The world of Semi-displacement aluminium hulls made using advanced technologies, with hybrid propulsion systems is a widely discussed topic in the yachting industry. The innovative new fleet born out of Sergio Cutolo’s master craftsmanship and talent for design marks an important step forward in the evolution of yachting, increasingly tied to the needs of owners who are careful to watch their consumption and their impact on the environment, but don’t want to make any compromises when it comes to safety and performance. Speed and performance with environmentally friendly technologies: these are the outstanding features of Sergio Cutolo’s innovative new Alubrid series.
The project Greenyachts Zero 80 was born from the pencil of Italian architects to cover the range of displacement boats market within 24 meters in length. A boat that is inspired by the tradition with an advanced central wheelhouse, which stands out particularly clearly for the stern area, with direct access to master cabin from aft sunbathing area. An area of great privacy, which is particularly protected while cruising.
The new Arcadia 115 is part of a growing trend in the marine industry. The car and air industry has been going through this transformation debate for many years, and for those of you whom have guessed already, it’s the green debate again. Many will say on the sea we have always been green with sailing craft but for those of you that choose motor cruising, the issue of eco cruising is firmly the hot topic of conversation when discussing design and innovation. The Arcadia’s answer is the 115, with its simple style, less showy approach, determined by punctual functional requirements but, at the same time, impressing when you see the innovative solutions onboard.
