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.
Sure you catch a few fish. And your cockpit team does the job as well as any you’ve ever seen. Maybe it’s time to put your boat up against the best in the world on the fishing tournament circuit. See how to do it here. ▶
