Magnum Marine will be attending this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, running in the fantastic Florida yacht charter destination – Fort Lauderdale from October 30 to November 3. During the event, the company will showcase their all-new Magnum 51 mega yacht tender, delivered to its new owner from Miami this summer.
Equipped with twin MTU 10V2000M94 of 1,600 HP, Magnum 51 yacht tender represents the results of Magnum Marine new studies in a more environmental friendly boat, especially on fuel economy and speed.
Amazingly, this over 70 MPH boat will use only 100gph, thanks to the lighter weight, common rail engines, the stiffer and lighter hull construction and the surface drives system.
During the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show 2014, the new Magnum 51 luxury yacht tender will be, by special appointment and permission from owner, available for sea trials after the show.
Interiors of the Magnum 51 yacht tender model include a large salon and galley, master stateroom, head and crew cabin. Also called “Bestia”(Beast) the boat is characterized by her tremendous speed, acceleration and brute power. The Magnum 51’ is a narrow beam, deep-vee, very heavy hull, generally equipped with twin Caterpillar or MTU diesels of between 1600 and 1925 HP each coupled to Arneson surface drives. The top speed can reach up to 74 MPH. Very impressive is her unbelievable seaworthiness in all weather conditions.
The boat slices through the waves and can safely and comfortably make long crossings in rough seas, whilst large yachts remain in port. In spite of its small size, the Magnum 51’ superyacht tender has approx 7’ headroom and boasts a comfortable double cabin with Queen sized berth and plenty of closet space, a large head with stall shower, a salon, galley and crew cabin. The cockpit, with bolster helm and companion seats also features an L-shaped side and transom seat and sundeck.

Two new models
Magnum is developing the restyling of two new models, also driven by new environmental concerns on fuel savings. The new Magnum 70 and the new Magnum 60 (both to be launched in 2015) will use less fuel for a similar performance thanks in part to new lamination technology that yard soon announces. Those models will also produce much less noise and less pollution. At the request of new Magnum clients, both models will have a very light hard top, which will protect from rain and provide shade, without giving a totally indoor enclosed feeling. One of the client referred: “I don’t want to feel as if I were indoors; I would like to feel as if I were outside, but under the shade of a tree. Magnum has achieved his goals. The windshield, protects from the air; and the top protects from the sun and the rain; nevertheless, the new Magnums still feel like being in an open boat; the owner of the first of this new series has named his boat “Freedom”. Both models are presently under construction.
