Going around, we came across boats that represent the history of Italian and international sailing. And that they are there, ready to be sold….

We begin with a thoroughbred boat, the 12-meter One Tonner Morri & Para, which is the former Brava, designed in 1984 by Vallicelli for lawyer Pasquale Landolfi, one of the pivotal owners of Italian sailing. The second hull in the Brava series was requested by Landolfi to upgrade from the first class to the 30.5-foot IOR, with which to take part in the first One Ton Cup and the legendary Admiral’s Cup of ’85. This is a beautiful west system laminated hull with mast rebuilt in 2014: in the interior the layout is classic with 8 berths, oven, charting, toilet. She is Aequipped for cruising and well-sailed for local regattas and classic boat rallies. DISCOVER MORE.

We end with a giant Farr 80, Idrusa, 24.20-meter boat designed by one of the greatest nautical designers in history, Bruce Farr, in fact, with the goal in 1996 of making a one-design boat with which to create a round-the-world circuit. The result was a heavy-displacement composite boat (24 tons) with significant sail area and high righting torque. The spectacular sail surface gives it the ability to catch the wind in function to very important acceleration cues and a speed that reaches exciting heights especially at upwind gaits where it expresses all its power in facing the sea.
