New 30.4m superyacht from Magnum Marine
by Malcolm MacLean
The new Magnum 100' model, presented by Magnum Marine, will be Magnum's largest yacht and is expected to be delivered by 2012. The styling was designed by the talented young Italian designer, Alberto Mancini, and offers a completely new concept of outdoor cockpit liveability.
The Magnum 100' is built in advanced composite foams and carbon ?bre, allowing power to weight ratios to be met with lower power, thus saving more than 20% in weight compared to similar models and also making the structure more rigid and more efficient. For less drag and therefore improved fuel consumption, Magnum installs surface drives, which not only reduce consumption but also increase top speed. For slow speed operation, the new Magnum will have an electric "harbour" drive: an electric wing engine for slow speed operation, which runs virtually silently and smoke free.
Interiors will be custom designed for her owner and include four very large double staterooms, heads, reception and saloon areas and comfortable crew cabins.
