Superyacht Luxury in a 20-Metre Yacht
YACHT IN is delighted to announce another new addition to its ever-growing Adriatic charter fleet: the groundbreaking 66' Azimut Magellano Navetto, M/Y BOLLINGER. Launched in 2017, Azimut has packed an astonishing amount of superyacht features into this 20 metre charter yacht—not least a deck Jacuzzi, the only such Jacuzzi on a yacht of this size. Her innovative dual-mode hull also offers superb performance, allowing for comfortable, quiet, and economical cruising at both low speed and high speeds.
BOLLINGER’s design has been inspired by larger superyachts, partly thanks to her modern exterior design by the acclaimed Dutch megayacht designer Cor D. Rover and Azimut, and naval architecture by Italian superyacht designer, Pierluigi Ausonio of Plana Design. The resulting yacht is one that feels (and functions) like a much larger yacht, creating an abundance of room for her eight guests to sleep, relax, and party as they island-hop through Croatia.
One place the high-volume design is abundantly clear is in the interior, which is unusually spacious thanks to the yacht’s tall hull and high plumb bow. The main deck is dedicated to an open-plan salon and dining area, furnished with banks of soft white couches and a dining table. The space is contemporary and relaxing, a harmony of clean lines, pale timbers, and natural Adriatic light spilling in from the large windows. Where BOLLINGER departs from other Magellanos is in its Navetto appellation, meaning that this yacht has a sliding door closing off this guest area from the galley and pilothouse forward, so the crew can go about their work without disturbing guests.
Bookings for 2022 are open
A private staircase leads down from the salon to the deceptively roomy accommodation deck, where you’ll find a stunning master stateroom amidships, which stretches across the full 5.5m beam. Bathed in light and finished with a delicate play of textures and soft fabrics, this is an elegant, welcoming cabin with his n’ hers closet, occasional lounge, and an ensuite with rainshower and bidet. Moving forward, you’ll come to the large VIP stateroom, a classic V-shaped cabin that spans the bow, complete with impressive storage and an ensuite. Two twin cabins are located further aft, one fitted with two single beds, the other with bunks, and these two cabins share a bathroom.
Eight guests are superbly accommodated on this level, while there is an additional convertible sofa bed sleeping one in the salon for an extra overnight guest if needed. At the very aft of the yacht and reached via separate access is a crew cabin for the yacht’s two crew
Moving out on deck, lounge On the main deck, there’s an 8-seater dining table and a wet bar with icemaker — the perfect spot for long meals by the waterline, accessed via the hydraulic swim platform only a few steps down. Forward on the bow is a glamorous little lounge with a small table for cocktails and canapes, with the seats converting into soft sunloungers for long afternoons sunbathing and reading books.
Yet it’s up on the flybridge that this yacht really shows off. The flybridge is significantly oversize, stretching from well forward of amidships right to the stern. This luxury of space allows for stunning features never seen on yachts this size; in BOLLINGER’s special case, a 4-person Jacuzzi, shaded by an awning for those long Adriatic days. There’s also an 8-seater dining table, a retractable hardtop roof, a rainshower, sunbeds, and a wet bar with two barbeques. This magnificent flybridge set-up is exquisitely rare in this size yacht, and in the case of the Jacuzzi, entirely unique.
Yet another aspect that makes BOLLINGER special is the 2nd generation dual-mode hull, which allows comfortable cruising at any speed, even in moderate seas. BOLLINGER reaches up to 22 knots for zipping between Hvar and Split at lightning speed, but also performs beautifully at lower speeds without sacrificing stability, which is a rare advantage. The yacht also has at-anchor stabilisers so you can enjoy long lunches at anchor, or you can get the watertoys out and pass the afternoon playing on the Sublue underwater scooters, being dragged behind the Williams 385 tender in the inflatable banana, or snorkelling or paddleboarding around the tranquil coves of the Adriatic. The yacht is also fitted with Penn professional big game fishing equipment if you fancy a bit of sportfishing, as well as 2 electric bicycles for exploring the islands.
BOLLINGER is the ideal vessel for a Croatia yacht charter, promising as it does the speed and accessibility of a small yacht, but the cruising stability and special features of a superyacht. She runs with two crew: a captain and cook/stew, and is available for charter in Croatia and Montenegro from her home port of Tribunj, a 1-hour drive from Split Airport.
