Italy

Some news about Italy:

First, their Weather report, continuously on channel 68 is a joke. Till now they did not get one right and i am sailing here for more than 15 days. Today they forecast Nw 4. It was Se 3. That has been like that all the time.

Another news, at least for me, Italians don't cruise, just stay in the marinas. Yesterday in Siracusa, lovely town and great anchorage, there were 14 boats and I was the only "Italian", at least in what regards the flag.

and the marinas are not cheap. In Marina del'Etna they wanted me to pay 115 euros for a night(I needed water and fuel) only when I said I was going to sail away they let me stay for free on the fuel ponnton that was where i was in the first place, because the marina was full

The image of the model gives some design clues, but emphasis will be on creating a versatile mini super yacht at a highly competitive price. A vast cockpit area, no less than 40% of overall deck space, will look after the guests, plus there will be spacious dedicated skipper and crew quarters, which no doubt will result in many JY64 going into the luxury charter market. Philippe Briand has a long and successful association with Jeanneau and Groupe Beneteau and this design will neatly fit into his elegant designs for the sister yachts – CNB 76, Bordeaux 60 and Jeanneau Yacht 57. More at: Cnb 76 : Production : Yachts : Philippe Briand : Yacht Design

So yes, it does look like the Bordeaux 60, and takes some of the design ques from it!

Very interesting. By the time I was done watching the video I think I was understanding Danish.

Tillykke!

Here's a Picture of the 14x3.3 m hull weighing in at about 500 Kg

Maybe Anders can say more about it

Hi everybody,
Have not followed this thread now for several hundred pages so time to catch up from the cockpit of the opium. Regarding build quality difference between Alizee and Wauquiez I can not tell, but my experience of the Wauquiez is good. It had had these minor things that all new boats have but besides that we are very happy with the boat. Currently in Aarhus in Denmark enyoing a fantastic summer.

Only drawback here is the width of the boat compered with box sizes in danish harbors. During a summer like this no problem, we are at anchor all the time but extended sailing season with smaller family in the future might motivate a switch to something smaller.

Regards,
Anders

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Perhaps you missed it on the other forum:
My 63' FRANCIS LEE, the "sliver" project was moved from the shed yesterday to the yard where it will be finished. Beam is 9.81 feet. My client has previously owned a Swede 55 and a 30 square meter. He likes narow boats. The hull is red cedar strip planking and the deck is composite glass and foam. The entire interior is CNC cut and foam cored It was built intact out of the boat and then dropped into the shell in one pice. The fit was perfect. Draft is 10 fet with a welded steel fin and a lead bulb. Total displacement will be 19,000 lbs. At this point in time we are spot on with our weights. Launch should be in two months.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hi Guys,

Finaly in Greece, Gaios,a beautiful place and before in Corfu, on the deserted west shore, Liapades. Both highly recommended, specially the first one: Beautiful and the only boat in the anchorage.

Nice passage from Italy doing almost always over 8k, many times over 9...a bit too much for my wife...not the speed but the sea condition

Lots of nice boats around. Lots of beautiful Comets in Italy, specially big ones (mine is a small one). Look at this 52 and tell me if she isn't a beauty

I'm really sorry about your accident in Vulcano. Meanwhile if you haven't ever visited Scilla at the north entering of the Messina Straight on the Calabrian side, well don't miss the chance
That's the place where i spend my holidays lol

I can't post link or images yet so just google images for "Scilla"

And possibly i'd suggest you to try "paccheri with swordfish and aubergines" in one of the pile-dwelling restaurants (directly accessible by sea) at "Chianalea" wich is the historical fishermen district where houses are built really on the sea (kind of Venice)

google images for "Scilla Chianalea risotoranti"

Hope u'll like it
Thanks for the tip. He liked Scilla, nice and not very expensive. The Anchorage has good holding but it is a bit uncomfortable (not a problem for us). On the other side it is rock and you have to pay for a buoy. I prefer to "eat" the buoy, I mean with the money

Did not have dinner there (bit rough the sea) but had a wonderful breakfast and nice shopping on the only market downtown (nice girl).

Some photos:

Paulo
