Thinking of an upgrade (!)

Don't worry, Farfetched is safe.

However, for tax reasons, a company I am involved with is considering a major chartering / leasing project in Northern Italy. The company is considering buying this beast. I am due to go on her from Ramsgate to Portsmouth on Tuesday. About 5-6 hours cruise.

Will take photos.

30 knots top wack - cruise 23. Never been on a boat like this - never been on a hard boat below the size of the Island Puffin!

Wonder if sea sickness is an issue?

I wonder what sort of literage those engines will burn on your run?

Yes correct see www.azimutyachts.com/gallery_azimut98.htm

I was stunned to find out that on many of the charters in N Italy the boat rarely moves more than a couple or five NM from the berth to a bay or to another little town for lunch. Typical week charters may have a total run of less than 25NM.....

I will find out consumption etc and anything else people want to know!

Nice Boat

shouldn't be cos its a it's a planing craft and it's big so it shouldn't roll to much when you are at rest.

Talking of Italian yachts did anyone hear that a British company has just taken over the biggest - Ferretti - the people who own 9 Italian yacht makers including Pershing and Riva.
