Of course, others will be added to the list. In short, having a Classic Boat is finally paying off, and not only in terms of passion and satisfaction.

Discovering 3 new Classic Boats from 7.4 to 9 meters

In short, there are now 300+ boats for all budgets and sizes (6-30 meters) that are increasing in value and can prove to be real bargains, both for those who already have them and for those who want to buy one. Because, yes, Classic Boats increase in value. But not only an emotional value. A real increase in the value they deserve due to their characteristics of innovation, beauty, quality, and performance. Boats that are worth and will be worth more than others and will be even more celebrated over time. If you want to discover them all, explore our sections Historic Classic Boats e

Hallberg Rassy 29, one of the projects in this new Classic Boat update


Sartini; 7.48 m x 2.50 m; 1972; Sciomachen

A small 7.48-meter Quarter Tonner, the Harlequin was a great early 1970s design by Sciomachen and Sartini Shipyards. She was a hull born for racing and nothing else, as evidenced by her second-place finish at the Quarter Ton Cup of 1971 in La Rochelle, France, with Cino Ricci at the helm. A version was later developed that was also suitable for cruising, depopulating along the coasts of Italy. Small, but beautiful boat.

Hallberg Rassy; 8.9 m x 2.83 m; 1982; Olle Enderlein / Christoph Rassy

Short stern, long low deckhouse, protected cockpit and a rich flavor of Nordic tradition. With the Hallberg Rassy 29, the Enderlein / Rassy duo signs a timeless jewel, a compact and pleasant bluewater, but above all agile and marine. The numbers, as often, provide excellent confirmation to the thesis here: 571 examples produced from 1982 to 1994. Undoubtedly, a splendidly successful project. Beautiful outside and comfortable inside.

X-Yachts; 9.08 m x 2.99 m; 1994; Niels Jeppesen

Produced from 1994 to 2004, the X-302 was a mid-1990s revival of the earlier X-312. A nearly identical hull, but with a lower momentum bow and stern, it was another Jeppesen success worth an impressive 117 units sold. Agile and high-performing, it exists in two distinct versions: an early series was stiffer and heavier, while the second, built with different bulb, is more docile and better in light winds.

The three steps to enhance your Classic Boat

Well, is your boat a Classic Boat? Now we explain how to dignify Classic Boats by Journal of Sailing and increase their value. We have created a network of professionals dedicated to precisely this enhancement.

  • The first mandatory step in enhancing the value of a historic Classic Boat by Giornale della Vela is appraisal. We have identified two “top” appraisers(Davide Zerbinati and Danilo Fabbroni) who can draw up a real Classic Boat certification and see the historical value of the boat recognized. Only by careful analysis of the state of the property and its maintenance over the years, as well as checking that the original design has not been distorted, can its value be certified.
  • Insurance is the second essential step, after the appraisal. Today it is difficult for an insurance company to value a boat that is at least 25 years old for its true value. With the Classic Boat initiative, once an appraisal is obtained from our two appraisers, the intrinsic value of the boat is also received by the insurance broker David Assicurazioni. And if the appraisal certified the boat’s excellent condition–the premium becomes more affordable! HERE you can find out more about insurance!
  • Buying and selling is the third step that required dedicated professionals: we involved one of Italy’s leading brokers(Abayachting) capable of transposing the real value of each of the current 188 selected boats, both in the case of selling and buying. It helps you sell it or buy it at the best price by selecting the best buyer or buyer, performing an assessment of the boat’s condition.
  • Our “dream team” of appraisers, insurers and brokers can be contacted with one click directly from the boat tabs (Link here).
