2014 Azimut Magellano 76

2014 Azimut Magellano 76

The Magellan 76, presented at Genoa International Boat Show 2012, comes from an evolution of the Magellano 74, the first model in the Collection of modern and sophisticated long range Azimut Yachts, which in 2009 wanted to once again renew the offer market. The design goals behind the Magellano models are autonomy, the maximum cruising comfort even at low speeds and the freedom to go at higher speeds when necessary.

In summary, the reinterpretation of traditional Italian trawler boats. The Magellano 76, compared to the previous 74, becomes even more versatile in use of the spaces on board. It keeps the atmosphere warm and welcoming of a family boat and at the same time offers the possibility of having on board a large aft area with two crew cabins, galley and laundry area.

Princess Yachts Planning Project 31 Restoration For 50th Anniversary Celebration

Princess Yachts Planning Project 31 Restoration For 50th Anniversary Celebration

Princess Yachts is preparing to restore the Project 31, the company’s very first model as part of its 50th anniversary celebration.

The occasion couldn’t have come at a better time for the company, which is earmarking its golden anniversary with a plethora of celebrations, none more important, it turns out, than bringing back to life the model that literally launched the company’s name into the high seas.

The historic project will include taking out parts from the original hull design of the boat and sending them to the company’s facility in Plymouth, UK, where engineers will take the helm in repairing, repainting, and reconditioning these parts to give them a modern twist.

Princess Yachts’ interior design team, Princess Design Studio, will also play a big role in the reconstruction of the Project 31 as it will create what the company describes as a “nostalgic interior concept” that pays tribute to the original interior of the iconic boat while mixing it splashes of modern materials, giving it a refreshed ambience fit for today’s style.

The company has yet to announce its plans for the Project 31 once the restoration project concludes. No exhibitions have been scheduled at the moment, but considering the lengths Princess Yachts is taking to bring its first-ever boat back to life, the company will likely schedule a public display at some point in the year.

What good would a 50th anniversary celebration be without showing everyone what you did with your first-ever boat.

CA Thayer’s restoration is finished

Once, hundreds of sailing schooners carried lumber to San Francisco from Washington, Oregon, and the California Redwood Coast. Built in 1895, C.A. Thayer was once part of that mighty Pacific Coast fleet. Today, she is a rare survivor from the days when strong canvas sails billowed over tall deck loads of freshly-milled fir and redwood.
