“ The 80 footer is Magnum’s biggest project to date…The styling is dramatic The boat has a beam of almost 20’ and weighed in at over 100,000 lbs …Having been on numerous yachts, sports boats, raceboats, etc, it takes a lot to impress me, but quite simply the 80’ Magnum is one of the top performance boats I have ever been on! I found the 80 footer had no bow lift while coming on plane,…in 45 seconds it was doing 45 mph, and we topped out at 53 mph. With lighter load the factory had seen 56 mph.
The boat handled like a dream, as if it were an 18’ ski boat. At any speed the 80 tracked straight and true and carved crisply through turns with ease. The Arneson drives also provided exceptional maneuverability at slow speeds and around docks. Even with 3600hp screaming under you…the cockpit was quite enough to carry a normal conversation. The cockpit would easily seat 20 or 30 and an additional 6 or 8 could lay out on the sun pad.
The cabin was very roomy, although not complete in this case. Magnum has all of their interiors hand crafted in Italy, and the owner of this first model requested specifically that the yacht be shipped to Italy for installation, rather than wait for the interiors to be brought to the US and installed. Apparently, he does not wait one moment longer than he has to to use his awesome 80 foot performance yacht. The Magnum is absolutely incredible!”
