As there we told a few days ago, at the VELAFestival there will be many world and domestic premieres from leading shipyards, such as the new Mylius 65 FD Oscar 3, the big news in the house Dufour, the 63 Exclusive, not to mention the drifts to which we will devote a separate space, to a total of 150 boats already involved. In fact, the best of the shipbuilding industry has chosen to display in Santa Margherita the most significant novelties of the season: we will have the Bali 4.o the smallest of the pure cruising range from the French shipyard Catana, one of the most sought-after models of the last season. As a superstar on the dock you will also see the Brenta 80, one of the most talked about boats in the Mediterranean since she made her debut in Cannes two years ago. Instead, Race Nautica will bring us the brand new Sunbeam 22.1; Jeanneau will arrive with a large fleet of at least 5 models. But our intention to embrace the entire sailing world has led us two months before the start to have a very important number on our hands, witnessing the great participation in this fifth edition of the VELAFestival: in fact, there are already 150 boats including Cult boats, VELA Cup entries and booked berths, new boats from major Italian and international shipyards, who will participate live in the four-day festival in Santa Margherita.
Among the goodies you are unlikely to see around the sea unless you come to the VELAFestival is the boat considered to date to be the most beautiful hull in the world: we are talking about My Song , Pierluigi Loro Piana’s Baltic 130, which will be with us on the dock for four days.
Great anticipation also for the beautiful Arpege Sula just restored by her devoted owner and which will be one of our Cult queens, Temptation, the fantastic and award-winning German Frers 59′ 18-meter former “Rrose Selavy.”
Caligú III formerly Rabbit, the small boat of just over ten meters designed by Dick Carter and which in 1965 stunned the yachting world by winning the legendary Fastnet race outright; Frida a Vindö 40 with a fiberglass hull, mahogany deckhouse and long keel. There will also be Jadera, built in house by shipwright Musap in 1968, following the Dragon’s construction plans. On the starting line you will also find the wonderful Lona II, the small auric cutter purchased in Britain by Maurizio Manzoli.
The Moor of Venice I built by Carlini and designed by Frers, and that’s just to name a few “gluttonous” names. But we will also have smaller boats such as theUfo 28 Hard Rock and the F18 Mountain Jaguar catamaran, the multi-time x35 Spirit of Nerina.
