Your #plasticfantastic starring at VELAFestival 2016. You also participate!

You may not know it yet, but your fiberglass boat is already a yachting icon
. If in fact you are the owner of a boat built of fiberglass. Between the early 1960s and 1995 (i.e. it is at least 20 years old) Respectful of the designer’s initial design, you are from this moment invited to celebrate with us and your boat at the VELAFestival (May 5-8 Santa Margherita Ligure) the 50th anniversary of the birth of the first mass-produced fiberglass boat, a momentous revolution that forever changed the history of boating because it marked the beginning of mass production.
We will organize a grand tribute to the dozens of fiberglass boats, built between the late 1960s and mid-1990s. Regardless of size or intended use. These fiberglass boats built until 1995 will be the guests of honor at the VELAFestival and will be displayed and narrated, at sea and ashore, as CULT boats, objects that have made sailing history.

In Italy, as is already the case in the world of automobiles, 20 years are required from the date of construction in order to be classified as an object of historical interest, according to the parameters of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage. Therefore, the #plasticfantastic are the new icons of yachting and that is why they have been chosen as the guest of honor at VELAFestival 2016. At the dock in Santa Margherita you will find the production models that have made history for the great Italian and world shipyards. But not only that, #plasticfantastic will also be a new category at our
, regatta/sailing in the Gulf of Tigullio on May 7: for the first time these boats will be able to race with their own dedicated classification.
