Florida-based Magnum Marine, owned by aristocratic Italian boatbuilder Marchese Filippo Theodoli, has begun production on its largest and lost luxurious yacht to date, the Magnum 100. Designed by Italy's Alberto Mancini, the sleek 100-ft. craft is made of carbon fiber and advanced composites for a high power-to-weight ratio. In addition to its twin 2,600 HP MTU diesel engines, the 100-footer has been equipped with numerous ecologically-minded devices such as an electric "harbor" drive wing engine for slow speed operation, which runs virtually silent and exhaust free. A number of indoor and outdoor seating, dining and viewing areas are incorporated into the design with an expandable top providing various movable shaded spaces when out on the water. Four double staterooms belowdecks provide luxe accommodations.
