  1. An alternate viewing of the Master, showing off her rich mahogany, matt-finished woodwork and a requisite flat-screen to catch the late show.
  2. The master head is executed in minimalistic fashion, with an ample shower and seat. If you're a plus-sized person, the 12" wide vanity mirror will be your best friend. Beneath the sink is storage for towels, or an additional mirror as needed.
  3. Forward, the VIP stateroom with its queen-size raised berth, is equally grandiose as the Master. Set in the yachts bow, the quality of ride might not be quite as placid/comfy as the Masters, at times. However, it is a lovely, well planned and decorated state room.
  4. Her VIP head is the epitome of guest quarters. Accommodations include a stand-up shower and a stand-up head! Notice the raised commode that may leave shorter squatters with danglin' feet. Good overhead storage helps to offset the lack of good reflection in Magellanos mirrors.
  5. For anyone who's had to service - let's say a 48' Sea Ray Sedan Bridge - you'll appreciate the Magellanos engine room. A hatch located on the main aft deck grants entry to an engine room with head room... when the hatch is open! Still, it's reasonable good operating space for a 50-footer. This is mostly a byproduct of the Magellanos high freeboard. Azimut opted for a pair of 425HP Cummins diesels, but an optional hybrid system with a pair of 23Kw electric motors can also spin the props in peace for short periods.
  6. What's that white pumpkin doing here? Keeping her steady as she goes. Or sits. Azimut opted for the Seakeeper gyro system. For YachtForums members with bigger boats to stabilize, word is Seakeeper is developing larger, dual-unit systems for 100'+ rides. Anybody want a pair of globes in the bilge?
  7. Several different models of the yacht are available on special order. Azimut offers four slightly different accommodations plans, with two or three cabins. While choices will vary, the buyer has the opportunity to order the yacht with two staterooms and heads, the studio/office to starboard, and/or with a utility room including a washer/dryer and a single berth to port. Another design includes a lower-deck dinette. Azimut will offer several different versions of the Yacht at the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show, coming in Autumn 2011.
