"Azzurra" is a dream, and she has been prepared to realize that dream, the dream to sail around the world. This dream can now be yours. Azzurra has all the equipment: Marine VHF with cockpit second station and speaker, chartplotter, autopilot, wind instruments, radar, liferaft, solar panel, large house battery bank, upgraded rope clutches, Eberspacher 5kW heating with 4 outlets, SSB HF backstay antenna, upgraded and reinforced stress points, factory fitted Kevlar reinforcement to forward hull, upgraded guard wires, digital TV Antenna, FM/CD Radio with speakers in saloon and cockpit.
Azzurra is easy to handle at sea and easy to handle in the confined spaces of a marina. 2 wheels, large spade rudder, Vetus bow thruster, open transom, together make it very simple to "park" this large yacht even single handed.
Some optionals make the character of a yacht; if a yacht does not have them it cannot be viably upgraded. A 3 tons deep lead keel is an invaluable optional: it not only provides greater speed and pointing ability, but it reduces maintenance costs too. No more scraping and patching rusty keels. A lead keel simply does not rust.
Best in class Selden Mast with in-mast furling provides reliability and simple operation, making it fun to sail a 42" yacht single-handed.

Recent work carried out
MAINTENANCE CARRIED OUT OCT/NOV 2015Bottom hull sanded, faired and 2 coats of International Micron Extra 2 applied
Topside hull polished and waxed (she looks as new)
Bow thruster propeller replaced with new 6 blades model
Replaced Genoa and Spinnaker halyard
All remaining running rigging removed, washed and soaked with solution to prevent algae growth
Double heath insulation fitted to forward cabin, saloon and 2 x aft cabins. So now she will be warmer in the winter by retaining heat for longer and cooler in the summer by reflecting heat away. Also since the insulation material include 2 sheets of reflective aluminium she will have a greater radar footprint.
