Italian builder Azimut has kicked off 2023 with a strong showing at the Boot Dusseldorf boat show in Germany at the end of January, debuting the new S7 model from its Azimut line-up while also previewing a new addition to the Magellano range before its official arrival in September.

The low-slung, lithe S7 flybridge bears what the shipyard describes as a sporty and sustainable soul, thanks to a triple Volvo Penta IPS installation and a hull that draws on principles of efficient design to reduce fuel consumption by up to 30 percent – a significant shift which also delivers directly through a concomitant reduction in CO2 emissions.

Indeed, the Azimut|Benetti Group has made a point of diverting considerable resources to the development of its range of what it terms its Low Emission Yachts, which includes a growing number of the Azimut line-up.

These reductions, says Azimut, were achieved through a holistic study of the vessel, including the adoption of the most efficient propulsion systems for each yacht’s mission, the development of high-performance hydrodynamic hulls and the extensive use of lightweight carbon fibre.


The S7 is one of the results of this cutting-edge technological research, which sees the combination of advanced naval architecture with the efficient engine configuration (with a max speed of around 35 knots), and optimised hull lines designed in collaboration with PL Ausonio Naval Architecture.

The 21.68-metre S7 is a collaboration between designer Alberto Mancini and the creative boutique Yachtique. Yachtique, celebrating its debut design of an Azimut yacht, is an Italian creative boutique specializing in interior design and decor, a leading player in the creative direction of the Innovation Design Hub of Azimut|Benetti Group.

The team of architects behind Yachtique has been working for several years alongside the top design studios for the customisation of large yachts and creating sophisticated interior designs for major refit projects, and thanks to this experience it manoeuvres the most interesting residential and nautical trends with ease and creativity.

Yachtique has thus created the interiors of the new S7, taking inspiration from various sources, with the aim of fostering a chic residential style, without ever forgetting the intended use of the craft.

The S7 offers four guest cabins plus a crew cabin, and a bright main aft saloon that fully opens onto a spacious aft deck with a forward dinette for alfresco meals and an aft sunpad island. There’s also a comfortable flybridge and an extensive foredeck cockpit too. The mast suite below decks features not only a generous ensuite but also a separate dressing room.

At Düsseldorf, the brand also gave a preview of the new Magellano 60, which is due to have its official debut in September this year.

The 60 will complete the Magellano series – which includes the 66, 25M and 30M – and will also feature lines from the hand of the often provocative and always iconic designer Ken Freivokh.

The 60 draws on Freivokh’s extraordinary vision to integrate the refined world of sailing with the more complex world of the motor yacht. The models of the Magellano Series are crossovers for true connoisseurs, owners who love long voyages full of adventure and charm.

The Magellano 60 is a further step along the sustainable path that the brand has planned, and with the second-generation Dual Mode hull, she takes her rightful place as a Low Emission Yacht.

Characterised by a timeless aesthetic, she balances a design full of details, generous volumes and architectural solutions that guarantee not only a unique lifestyle but also freedom and intimate contact with nature.

Among her outstanding features, the Magellano 60 offers an Infinity Terrace aft and a new internal dining with an exclusive sea view.
