Azimut teases S10 and Grande Magellano 25m yachts

Italian yard Azimut Yachts used the occasion of Milan Design Week to reveal two new models that will hit the water in 2019 - the S10 and the Grande Magellano 25 Metri.

Both yachts will be the flagship of their class and feature new design collaborations for the yard - the S10 comes from the boards of Alberto Mancini, while the Grande Magellano was developed with Vincenzo De Cotiis Architects.

Speaking at the Teatro dell’Arte in Milan, Azimut Yacht’s Giovanna Vitelli explained, “For the past ten years we have been searching outside of the industry for leading architects who can introduce a new language on our yachts with completely different stylistic codes, expressed by evolving and contemporary projects.”

Mancini’s work will be familiar to many, with the designer having previously collaborated with the likes of Overmarine, Fairline and Dominator. For the Azimut S10 (pictured above), he sought to combine the elegance of a sailing superyacht, the architecture of a modern seaside villa and the personality of a supercar.

This can be seen in the flush decks, aft beach club and slightly lowered amidships cockpit, which will be the main social area on board the Azimut S10. Other key features will include fold-out terraces and exposed carbon fibre detailing, both in the pulpit and the central staircase.

Vincenzo De Cotiis, who designed the Grande Magellano 25 Metri (pictured below) is a new name to the yachting industry, having spent the past 20 years styling private homes, hotels, restaurants and boutiques.

For his first superyacht interior project, he combined open, airy spaces with contrasting materials, such as brass, lacquered wood, mirror inserts and decorative fibreglass. Meanwhile, the irregular dining table evokes the shape of a jagged shoreline.

Accommodation on board the Grande Magellano will be for up to eight guests split across four cabins, including a lower deck master suite. Further technical details are being kept under wraps for now, with Azimut keen to focus on the theme of the event: design.

“It is often a continuous tension,” Vitelli concluded. “Because dialogue is sometimes not easy. Yet we continue to do so because we believe in this fruitful relationship: a mutual exchange between the shipyard that knows the maritime essence of the object, the owner's needs and the style brought by the architect. Only in this way does the form, with its stylistic functions, contemplate the function."
