PCP will become famous soon enough
Italia 13.98

New boat and I have to say I love this one: Italian style, that means less beamier than the French ones, more classic but not on the performances. The boat is very light, very stiff and very fast.

I like the look, a classic look mixtured with modern design. I like the interior and the performances. Probably I don't like the price.

The boat was tested by Toby Hodges from Yachtingworld magazine. He favors beamier styled boats, with the beam brought back and even so the guy was really impressed...with everything, from performances to the finish.

The videos:






and look at the performance with very light wind. Look at the banner, sometimes they are probably sailing with 5K of real wind. Look how the boat glides and "makes" wind. Really impressive.
