An exquisite new jewel hovers between sky and sea, where time is suspended and the journey begins. Like a wave among waves, the sinuous lines of the interior blend in perfect harmony with the outside world. A glorious panorama of the shimmering sea stretches as far as the eye can see. An extraordinary light infuses the space, permeating the air, enveloping you in its reassuring embrace. Every shape unveils its unexpected beauty, every element reveals an unexpected detail and wonder. You are at the helm of infinity. Cruising has never been so unconventionally perfect.
The exteriors of the Magellano 25 Metri have been designed by Ken Freivokh, a renowned figure in the world of boat design and the name behind some of the world’s most stunning megasailers. The vision that guided his design of the lines of the boat was wonderfully simple: to create an object of timeless, exquisite beauty, immune to passing fads and trends. A superstructure entirely in glass, conceived to recreate the idea of a penthouse overlooking the sea, is the central element around which the entire design revolves. Slatted teak panels on either side of the aft area of the deckhouse add an indefinable personality to the boat’s silhouette. An elegant spiral staircase leads to the flybridge, where the hard top is supported by a minimal central mast, while the near-vertical prow reminds us of the Magellano’s outstanding credentials when it comes to seaworthiness.
The unconventional beauty of the Magellano 25 Metri manifests itself in a myriad of ways, and maybe none more so than the choice of Vincenzo De Cotiis and Azimut Yachts to thrust fibreglass into the spotlight with a specially developed variant for this project. Usually a material that is forced to maintain a low-key profile, here it is meticulously worked, embellished and polished, to become a stunning, innovative stylistic element that unashamedly takes centre stage. Instead of its usual coarse unfinished appearance, it has been transformed into something noble, profound and tactile. With a surface the colour of parchment and a depth that recalls the warmth of amber, it takes on a natural, precious aspect, whilst certain elements are dusted with a bronze powder, scattered by an artisan’s hand, to create a gentle shimmer that brings to mind the wonderful, unique imperfections found in natural stone.
The Magellano 25 Metri sits proudly atop the water, with its solid form full of the promise of long, memory-making voyages where you will finally have the chance to savour time and rediscover its true sense. Indeed, it is this spirit of travel that Vincenzo De Cotiis has explored and brought to life with a décor, design elements and layout that capture the originality and unique approach of the sea traveller and their willingness to embrace the extraordinary moments and experiences of every journey. The fluid geometries of the boat spring from the idea of recreating and integrating marine elements in a natural way throughout. Inspired by the concept of the gentle form of the waves, the seating, forms and even the depth achieved in the spatial dimension all evoke the movement of the sea’s surface. This connection with the sea is also seen in the choice of colours with an intense blue that veers towards green recalling the hue of the water at its deepest points, whilst the use of wood and white are unmistakably marine. Light is another fundamental element of the design. The vast windows, combined with grand prospective depth, make the most of the natural light that floods the interiors, creating a joyous, uplifting environment.
