Re: Interesting Sailboats

Talking about yachts by Vallicelli reminded me of one that was a WOW when first launched in the late 90's : Oceano 54 by VR Yachts. I don't think they built many - maybe too expensive from a yard not well known outside of Italy ?

Elegant styling and a good compromise on hull volume by todays standards. Freeboard not excessive, nice large aft cockpit with drop down transom, interesting layouts and the Open 60 style pilot house still looks unique

The VR yachts website still has 2 pages with full details (see under "VR54" and then link to images) - can't yet post web links here & full size images as need 10 posts !
