Italian boatbuilder Azimut-Benetti is certainly making waves with a refreshing new design that sets itself apart from the more traditionally inspired designs in the niche. Our editors applaud the innovation and technical advances of the new Magellano series. The entry-level model in Azimut’s Magellano long-range cruiser line, which started with the 74 and last year evolved to the 50, the 43’s hull has proven her efficiency operating at trawler-like seven-knot speeds, as well as at semidisplacement speeds up to 18 knots.
If you haven’t yet seen the Evo 43 then you’re in luck. This boat uses some really inventive design to amp up function in a sharp dayboat with a nice turn of speed. But when you anchor out, the Evo plays her trump card.
