The start of the 2015 TAG Heuer VELAFestival is just under two months away. Day by day the unique Italian sailing festival takes shape. In Santa Margherita Ligure, May 7-10, there will be an embarrassment of riches for enthusiasts. So let’s let the numbers do the talking, because already 65 exhibitors have confirmed and new ones are being added every day.

SO MANY CONSTRUCTION SITES FROM AROUND THE WORLD
Already more than 30 novelty boats have confirmed their presence. We are talking about the world’s major shipyards. A few names:
Amel
, Beneteau, Dufour, Elan, Hallberg-Rassy, Solaris, just to name a few. It will make its debut, and we are talking about catamarans, one of the world’s leading manufacturers, the French
Catana with its new Bali range
, for the first time in Italian waters. There could be no shortage of dinghies, which will bring the brand new Beach Village to life: you will find here the British shipyard’s racer
RS Sailing
, but also the fun inflatable catamarans Minicat, not forgetting a treat:
Anacleto
, a small wooden jewel.

LET’S TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT CULT BOATS
The number of CULT boats, or those goodies that you will never find at any other boat show and that have made sailing history, is also growing. Among the boats in attendance already confirmed will be the Sangermani Namib of shipowner Pietro Bianchi, the legendary Midva By Davide Besana designed by Ron Holland, the 1964 Sangermani Paulena born to make Transpac and now owned by the French De Ganay family, the 92-footer Whitefin by Andrea Milan a design by Bruce King, which will arrive at the VELAFestival fresh from restoration. There are already all the prerequisites to feast your eyes on…
