Aluyacht AY 480

We have already talked about the AY 480, the Italian aluminum voyage boat, one that shares some of the characteristics of the previous 60ft aluminum cruiser even if with a different keel and an overall lighter boat.

It is a Zerbinati design and the boat has an interesting story. It started to be a Dudley Dix design and then was bettered in many ways by Zerbinati.

An interesting movie about the building techniques used and with some images of the boat sailing. Not for all since it is in Italian, but the ones that don't understand can have a better look at the boat anyway:
