Yea, its only 9ft longer, but almost 6ft wider.
If money was no object, you can get the best of both worlds... luxury accomodations and speed/handling.

Can always pick up a used 44 or 50. In fact the 50 in the vid w/ the apache(or at least very similar) is for sale on the magnum website.

Nice boats, but never really liked their styling at all.

Good old school, it was never broken so no need to fix it, it will not rattle or fall apart, same address and phone number for past 45 yrs. Not many company`s can say that. Magnum is the super chief over any Apache. I`ll put Magnum up against any other mfg. out there for ride quality and performance, trust me I have been around the world on every race circuit, plus dealt with Baia`s Sunseeker`s Pershings etc. Non can come close to a hard core boat like the Magnum. It may not have the ginger bread like some of the boats I described, but Ginger bread is for wuss`s who don`t know anything about boats, and who buy them and use them as condo`s on the water

As homer simpson would say.. "Doh!" Nice post Richie.
We loved our 1976 Magnum! Awsome ride, and the biggest at the time.

Nice.....a little sensitive huh? LOL! All I said is that I didn't ever like the styling, and then according to you, any other boat is for "wuss's who don't know anything about boats". I think that when you say "gingerbread" you are actually referring to "technology advances"?

To me they look like an 80's Seville and with style updates should look like an STS styling-wise.

It is the Aston Martin of the seas, founded by legendary Don Aronow
80% OF MAGNUM MARINE IS ACQUIRED BY SIX ITALIAN MANAGERS

GIORGIO LONARDI
Milan – Montezemolo had tried to make it. Not Confindustria Chairman Montezemolo, but his son Matteo with the Charme Fund. Than it was the turn of Paolo Vitelli, Chairman of Azimut: no way. Thumbs down also for Norberto Ferretti, number one of the ‘Made in Italy’ yachting. The reason for this was that Katrin Theodoli, Chairman of Magnum Marine, historical brand of the American luxury yachting, has never wanted to sell. Up to yesterday. Because now, the company, founded in Miami in 1966 by ingenious and adventurous designer Don Aronow, has found a new owner.
The Aston Martin’s of the sea, the fast, high performance boats that appear in the first series of Miami Vice, are namely about to be taken over by a group of six Italian managers working in the boating sector, lead by the Anglo-Italian entrepreneur Christian Tirabassi, with the assistance of a financial partner outside the sector. Their objective: to re-launch the Miami-based shipyard, famous all over the world for its elegant and fast boats (some models travel faster that 60 knots), by revitalizing the relationship with the most famous designers in the world (the group had a partnership with Pininfarina for several years) and significantly increasing the production up to 15 boats in 2008.
The operation, which has now been completely defined in the economic terms, must only be finalized. The agreed price for 80% of the company is of 20 million dollars, to be added to further 5 or 6 million for restructuring the Miami based shipyard and for marketing and communication activities. Katrin Theodoli will keep 20% of the company, as well as a key role in the relationship with the big customers and representing the brand both in the United States and in the rest of the world. Her son Giovanni Theodoli will keep on working in the company within the new managerial team.
The acquisition, carried out by Mr Tirabassi and the five managers currently working inside the top level yachting industry, on one side values the whole company at 25 million dollars, about twice as much as the previous offers. On the other side it lays stress on the restructuring of the productive side of the company, in order to be able to keep the brand alive and meet to the market demand.

So, an entirely Italian management. But the shipyard will remain well rooted in Miami, in its historical base. Also because the American image is vital for the success of Magnum Marine, a brand with the strength of a myth, but whose identity of producer of luxury open motoryachts from 44 to 80 feet in the high performance segment needs to be reinforced and reignited with life. Also by updating the existing model range.Founded in 1966 by Aronow, whose life is described in the movie ‘The ThunderMan’, just presented in Cannes (Aronow was mysteriously killed in the Eighties in unknown circumstances), Magnum Marine was taken over in 1976 by Filippo Theodoli, who died in 1990. Since then, the company has been managed by his wife Katrin, up to the deal of these days. Katrin, as already mentioned, will maintain the guidance in the next few years, a strategic role in the re-launch of the brand.

Hopefully some of the "Italian" will rub off on the boat design and technology.

As far as the Aston Martin reference goes.......I'd rather have a new Aston Martin than an "old school" AM.

"old schhol" 80's Vantage vs "new school" Vantage

Interesting... a bit'o bashing from a mid 90s era Sunseeker owner.

If its any consolation, i like the styling of the 90s sunseekers better than the new ones.
But I'd much rather cross the STREAM on a nasty day in a 44mag w/ 1500hp diesels, than most anything available on this site.
Screw it, throw in a pair of turbines.

Nope.....like I said, they are nice boats......I just never liked the styling! Mr. Magnum started the; "any other boat is for "wuss's who don't know anything about boats". " That type of attitude seems to run rampant on 188th Street.


My Seeker is old......and a fun project boat. I have fun, but I'd rather have a new one!

Sure doesn`t take much to get reactions anymore, everyone is entitled to opinions, and if voiced have to take the brunt, thanks.
FYI to all about Magnum being bought. I spoke with Gio Theodoli last night about the post on OSO. and it is not so. They did not buy Magnum, and she didn`t sell, as a result there is on going litigation, seems they were not so nice group.
R.I.P.
