Key highlights include:

● Azimut’s Magellano 60

AZIMUT WINS THE 2024 EUROPEAN POWERBOAT AWARD

The Azimut Magellano 60 was recognized as the winner of the European Powerboat

Award for the category of yachts up to 20 meters during boot Düsseldorf 2024



At Flagship Night, the nautical industry event organized by Boot Düsseldorf with the publishing house Delius Klasing on January 20th, the winners of the 2024 European Powerboat Award were announced, spotlighting the best boats tested by the jury during

the previous nautical year.



Azimut’s Magellano 60 is the winner of the “up to 20 meters” category. Presented for the first time at the 2023 Cannes Yachting Festival, the already award-winning Magellano 60 also amazed the jury of the European Powerboat Award, which is made up of authoritative international experts from the main European nautical publications. They explained their decision to award Azimut, stating that “the Magellano 60 impresses in the motor yacht class up to 20 meters. In addition to its successful visual appearance, the Magellano 60 is characterized by her newly developed hull, which ensures perfect handling at both slow and fast speeds. The workmanship and safety standards are also of the highest level”.


The Magellano 60, in fact, guarantees high performance with the efficient Dual Mode semi-planing hull, which cruises in total comfort at low speeds and can reach higher speeds, all the while mitigating the impact of waves and optimizing the yacht’s consumption and emissions. At just 60 feet, she is a true crossover of the sea, complete with all the comforts appreciated on long voyages. The elegant external lines traced by Ken Freivokh combine with the large spaces on board; the most characteristic part of the Magellano 60 is the stern, which is transformed into an Infinity Terrace with a transparent parapet that offers visual continuity with the sea. Additionally, the natural extension of the Main Deck to meet the cockpit helps to harmonize the experience of the yacht with nature.


Today, the Magellano 60 is also synonymous with reduced emissions, because she is the first boat in the Azimut fleet to run on HVO, the biofuel produced by Eni Live (Eni Sustainable Mobility) with 100% renewable raw materials*. According to the results of the tests carried out by the Shipyard, this biofuel, combined with the Dual Mode hull, supports high levels of performance and a reduction in well-to-wake CO2 emissions of more than 80% compared to a yacht of comparable size poweredby fossil fuels.

● CANDELA C-8

The Swedish-made Candela C-8 is the world's first 100% electric hydrofoil boat, which flies above the water, offering a quiet yet thrilling experience. Due to its efficient design, it is the firstelectric boat to combine a long range with high performance. Europe's best-selling electric boat will have its Asia-Pacific debut at the Singapore Yachting Festival.



In conjunction with the opening of Candela’s new APAC office. "Across Asia and the Pacific, from archipelagos to cities, we see a huge market and demand for new sustainable transport solutions that can reduce congestion and emissions. Our technology offers quicker journeys, lower costs for operators, and zero emissions," says Björn Antonsson, Candela’s newly appointed Regional CEO for Asia-Pacific.


Thanks to computer-controlled wings beneath the hull, the Candela P-12 Shuttle flies above the water surface at high speeds, which considerably reduces friction. It differs from all other fast ships – electric or diesel - by using a staggering 80% less energy than traditional ferries. Thanks to this, it’s the first fast electric ferry with long range – up to 100 km on one charge, at a speed of 25 knots.


When flying, it generates no waves or noise, and its outstanding energy efficiency drastically reduces operational costs compared to traditional ferries. Designed for multi-modal transport, the P-12 fits 30 seated passengers along with storage for bikes and luggage.


● A glimpse into innovative boating and marine technology

The Festival provides a preview of cutting-edge marine innovation and technology including the AirFish Wing-In-Ground (WIG) craft by ST Engineering AirX, which is a groundbreaking hovercraft-like vessel that utilises aerodynamic forces and air pressure generated between itself and a water surface to reduce induced drag and achieve a more fuel efficient, high travel speed. The 10-seater AirFish 8, which is slated for certification and entry into market by 2025, will be making an appearance at SYF.
