Plenty of yachts have appeared as backdrops on the silver screen, but the Azimut Magellano 25 Metri is the first to play the protagonist in a movie. She starred in a short film by Italian director Gabriele Muccino that premiered at an invitation-only event in Portofino this past summer.

The red-carpet turn highlighted just how far the semi-displacement Magellano collection has come since Azimut created it in 2009. This line of fiberglass navettas—the Italian take on trawlers—offers longer range and more sedate cruising than Azimut’s planing yachts. The first Magellano was a 74-footer (22-meter) with exterior lines by U.K.-based Ken Freivokh. Smaller models followed, styled by Dutch designer Cor D. Rover. Azimut returned to Frievokh, best known for his superyacht creations, for the new 25 Metri (with a length overall of 82 feet, 9 inches) and for an 88-foot (30-meter) model still in the pipeline.

The 25 Metri’s vaguely retro exterior lines and bold bow shape instill the design with a sense of honest purpose. Fussy detailing has been studiously avoided, and teak-slatted fashion plates help to break up the raised pilothouse superstructure. A single, fin-style mast extension supporting the carbon-fiber, louvered hardtop further lightens the profile and improves visibility from the flybridge deck.
