Aluwind 56

A beauty isn't it?. That is also a sad story. There was once an aluminum boat builder in Italy, Aluwind. They started with a bad idea, a Bill Dixon 44 old design, have it modified by Zerbinati and then when they commissioned this nice one to Zerbinati something went wrong, or the owner of the boat back off or they were making it without being already sold and went out of money, I don't know.... they bankrupted and a nice hull and cabin is for sell.

I have to say that the design of the interior they were proposing was quite ugly and that can have contributed to the disaster. If it is not already sold, there are a very nice hull, built by a firm specialized in aluminum boat building in Italy, probably at a very nice price ready to be finished.

Maybe that ends up to be somebody's luck

I like the classic style and the dimensions. You can see the dimensions and the real boat here:
