0:20 became about thanks to the expertise if paolo so mara
0:23 are the best Italian sailors there’s ever been went on to set up in business
0:27 as a cell maker
0:28 and now as a bogey on Giovanni Ceccarelli
0:32 known for his creative work in the America’s Cup led the design project for
0:35 this boat
0:36 win nearly up to nine knots which with nine knots of wind
0:40 is incredible for twelve and a half me to boat but the true luxury of this boat
0:44 which will have a look at shortly are the amazing feeling she gets when he’s
0:48 sailing
0:49 we use to the little luxuries in life glass finally
0:53 called back a red but with this neo 400
0:56 we’re talking about something completely different another world
0:59 altogether
1:05 and Sun Duluth and if you know the person about comeuppance up on
1:09 p.m. compatible Muslim yes this is James the
1:13 I’ll chink want then they can pull a second it’s a book with him but his
1:16 pursuits journalists that
1:18 and put a politician said when I was thinking about who was going to buy this
1:21 boat
1:22 I didn’t think if the buyer is such book more about what I with me
1:26 so I thought about fifty year old who perhaps eyes limited time to use the
1:30 boat
1:30 but still wants the same experience they had when they were sailing years ago
1:34 even on Winsor resulting is but having it all with a degree of comfort and
1:39 safety editing
1:40 so they can enjoy a high performance sailing experience with for those few
1:44 hours
1:44 regardless of how strong the wind is or a more leisurely soil
1:48 or even a more lengthy regatta your in both the idealization in the practical
1:53 for projects the idea was
1:55 always to create a totally made in Italy boat
1:58 is always been my approach around for twenty years of my career
2:02 just why are chose my supplies and designers from the Italians and Italian
2:07 firms
2:07 really wanted to follow a project like this all mean even those who
2:11 maybe had a little less commercial experience all
2:14 moreover designed to create something a little bit different home
2:17 in creating this team we needed a certain degree of trust and friendship
2:21 so we decided to partner up with Ceccarelli summary right
2:37 bad news picking a level untidy a settlement body interior shows just how
2:41 much this boat needs to participate in regattas
2:44 its bill we’ve wat mineralization in mind goals by themselves Waimea

3:12 I’m PQ here we are in the stone cabin as you can see
3:15 even here there’s been particular attention to what is really needed
3:19 the cabin has a decent height to it making changing and moving around in
3:23 general
3:24 a lot easier the bed itself can be divided until teed
3:27 according to the angle of the boat and with the addition of Lee Clark’s is
3:31 particularly useful
3:32 if on a beat during ever gasser the ability to adjust the end of the bed not
3:37 only increases the comfort for those sleeping but can help with the balance
3:41 at the boat
3:41 just have a look also hearing about the bed can be transformed into one
3:46 3.5 meter long an ideal area for the kids to play

4:30 into a seating area for two

5:05 about to release simply ease of the pressure
5:24 promise ripping on request a price that feeling in a funk bass peek at how we
5:27 can reach this level of performance
5:29 it’s great it’s celebration how easy
5:32 cuts through the waves and its ability to play with on a broad Rachel running
5:37 well it’s a pretty clearly lights yet incredibly rigid but
5:41 home is built in counting fiber but can be pretty impregnated
