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.
Greenline Hybrid is a boatbuilder that uses hybrid diesel-electric propulsion systems and solar panels on the hardtop plus smart design to make the efficient use of the energy on the boat. The result in some models: silent operation, full-size residential appliances, and an overall pleasant experience on board.
