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.
This Memorial Day, remember those who were lost serving our country on the high seas in the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats. Recently we were invited out for a ride on the only operational combat-veteran PT Boat, PT 305 in New Orleans.
