Welcome to the 61st annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) which was held October 28 to November 1, 2020. The largest in water boat show in the world was smaller this year due to COVID-19 as well as the Convention Center and Pier 66 being reconstructed. I believe this was the first major boat show to be open since the pandemic began canceling every boating event worldwide back in March.
Take a full tour aboard Azimut Yachts’ newest model, which is also making its US Premiere at FILIBS 2020, the Magellano 25 Metri. This particular model was also one of the seven “Best of Show” Finalists for FLIBS 2020.

From the official site:
“INTERIOR DESIGN BY VINCENZO DE COTIIS
Surprising and unconventional, the Magellano 25 Metri is a masterpiece that seamlessly fuses art and the sea. The interior lines were designed by Vincenzo De Cotiis, an architect and designer with an attitude that hovers more towards the art world. One of the world’s foremost exponents of collectible art, with the Magellano 25 Metri, he applies his unmistakable hallmark touch to a yacht for the very first time. Given his longstanding love of fibreglass which he has used in the creation of many of his works, there is a wonderful symmetry in the collaboration, when you consider that for Azimut Yachts, this material is an essential construction element. Fluid, surprising forms, an out-of-the-ordinary conjugation of the sea and its surroundings, together with light-flooded spaces all combine to make the Magellano 25 Metri a truly extraordinary boat that seems suspended in time and poised to weigh anchor at any moment in a quest to rediscover the simple essence of travel.
The exteriors of the Magellano 25 Metri have been designed by Ken Freivokh, a renowned figure in the world of boat design and the name behind some of the world’s most stunning megasailers. The vision that guided his design of the lines of the boat was wonderfully simple: to create an object of timeless, exquisite beauty, immune to passing fads and trends. A superstructure entirely in glass, conceived to recreate the idea of a penthouse overlooking the sea, is the central element around which the entire design revolves. Slatted teak panels on either side of the aft area of the deckhouse add an indefinable personality to the boat’s silhouette. An elegant spiral staircase leads to the flybridge, where the hard top is supported by a minimal central mast, while the near-vertical prow reminds us of the Magellano’s outstanding credentials when it comes to seaworthiness.”
