Magnum Marine has announced that its new Magnum 51 model will make her debut at the upcoming Ft.Lauderdale International Boat Show. By special appointment and permission from owner, the boat will be available for sea trials after the show.
Equipped with twin MTU 10V2000M94 of 1,600 HP, the new model represents the results of Magnum Marine new studies in a more environmental friendly boat, especially on fuel economy and speed.
The builder says 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.
Interiors of this new Magnum 51 include a large saloon and galley, master stateroom, head and crew cabin. The boat is characterized by her 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. The builder says she has unbelievable seaworthiness in all weather conditions.
In addition, Magnum Marine has announced the developing 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. These models will also produce much less noise and 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 currently under construction.
