The 25-meter flagship of the Magellano line is promised to be shown a little later and immediately in a very interesting version – Art Yacht Project by Vincenzo de Cotiis. Who is this, Vincenzo de Cotiis? Italian architect and designer specializing in one-of-a-kind art objects. His style in interior design – airy open spaces, expressive expressiveness and unusual contrasting materials – more than fits the philosophy of the Azimut Magellano series, for these are very unconventional yachts designed for a long autonomous journey.
Design and construction
The entire Magellano series are comfortable boats, although not the fastest. However, as with its high-speed models, Azimut Yachts has made extensive use of carbon on the Magellano 25 Metri. This allows you to expand space and surfaces without weighting: the flybridge, hardtop and garage are completely made of carbon fiber. The new transient body has two cheekbones. The upper one gives it the desired width and stability when driving at low speeds, while the lower one operates at higher speeds, cutting off the flow of water and thereby reducing drag and reducing fuel consumption.
Working with Azimut Yachts on the Magellano 25 Metri for Vincenzo de Cotiis was the first experience in the yachting industry and promises to be very interesting. Among the most unexpected design elements is the use of fiberglass composites not only for structural purposes, but also for purely decorative purposes.
Interior and layout
De Cotiis is known for using new, non-standard materials in his works, often already influenced by the times. Fiberglass is not a new material, but in this case it is used for the first time in such a noble way: to create surfaces and various objects of "organic" shapes. The designer put it in the spotlight on purpose. According to him, fiberglass demonstrates its harsh "unpolished" soul, in contrast to much more valuable materials.

De Cotiis has already done this in his most exquisite work, halfway between functional design and high art. However, there will be no shortage of expensive materials on board either: a lot of wood is used in the decoration – lacquered and brushed, brass and mirror inserts.
To create a new aesthetic "dimension" without distorting the family qualities of the Magellano line, the designer had to do a difficult job, including using special material processing processes. And the stylistic research of de Cotiis made it possible to make a clearly formulated architectural project of a very unusual layout. The main goal is comfort on board, in particular, strict separation of areas for the owner of the yacht, guests and crew (on board there are four cabins for passengers and two for the crew). This is one of the most important moments for a long cruise yacht.
However, the designer did not get carried away with unnecessary separation: all rooms maintain visual contact with the sea. Interior elements have soft shapes, for example, an irregular table in the cabin resembles a coastline. All geometry on board is "irregular": this play of lines is designed to create a sense of variable "depth" of space.
