Genoa Boat Show

Anybody going to visit this one? I hear that there is a lot of RIBs at this show, most often from the manufacturers that we are not accustomed to.
Anyway, I will be there Friday-Sunday so if anybody is going let me know and maybe we can get together for some pasta and Chianti

Back from Genoa... It was simply UNBELIEVABLE!
I was prepared to see lots of Azimuts and Pershings and Ferrettis...

But I was completely unprepared for the sheer number of RIBs and inflatables on display. I'm still lost for words. (Could it be because of all that Chianti, I wonder )

It's difficult to single out any particular boat or manufacturer, but I liked the stylish Zar line from Formenti and the TUG line from Novamarine. And I don't think there was anyone at the show who didn't stop to admire the huge cabin RIBs; HD Fifteen by Novamarine, 15,2 m long and powered by 3x300 hp Yanmar diesels; Marchi Super Alfa 52, 16,5 m long and with a big wing on the top of the cabin; or Oceanic 55 by Solemar, a 15,9 m long Italian beauty with stepped hull and double 440 hp Yanmars connected to surface-piercing drives via two-speed ZF-gearboxes...

I will post some pictures as soon as films are developed and scanned.

The films should already have been developed and scanned. We don't see beauties like these everyday.

Yeah, digital camera... I wish I had one. The problem is, you see, that I write for a boat magazine here in Sweden and obviously photos need to be of very high quality. And digital cameras capable of producing that kind of quality are simply too expensive.
Of course if I had to take a picture today and have it in the newspaper tomorrow then I could ask the folks at the magazine to buy me one. But there is no such need......

So, I'm afraid you'll have to wait a few days.
