Under Italian law, boats that do not exceed 10 meters (hull length) do not need to be registered. They are called “vessels” in bureaucratic jargon. No license plates, reduced paperwork, simplified safety equipment. But in reality these 10-meter boats are much bigger than they look. They come in well over 10 meters in length overall, and more importantly, shipyards find solutions to make them perfect boats not only for day trips, but also for sleeping on board with family and friends. They then have hulls capable of undertaking even long sailings.
We went to our virtual boat show, Milano Yachting Week – The digital boat show, and chose for you three boats that have “oversize” features while staying within the 10-meter hull length threshold. Therefore, they are not subject to registration under Italian law.
Sealine C 330 – 10.31 m
Sealine C330(click here) is the perfect example of how all the comfort of a much larger motor boat is packed into a boat of only ten meters.
The work of Sealine and renowned British designer Bill Dixon makes sure that space is used to its fullest, but with class and great taste. Easy to say at such a small size, very difficult to do. In short, the ideal boat not only for day trips but also for real cruising with friends or family.
You just have to visit the Sealine C 330 at the dock at Milan Yachting Week(click here) to discover its features, read what new concepts inspired it, look at the first sailing photos, those of the interior and deck, and a nice video.
Beneteau Antares 11/11 Fly – 11.08 m
Antares 11/11 Fly(click here) is available in two versions, “open” and Fly. It’s a small superyacht with a cockpit that opens up (yes you read that right!), an upper cabin with a galley, powered by two 300-horsepower outboards and sleeps five in two cabins. And in the fly version a “second floor” where you can pilot, lie down, eat, and relax as if on a private terrace.
Beneteau with Antares 11 and 11 Fly(click here) has made a boat that, you may have guessed, is a miracle of habitability. But it is also a boat with very modern, streamlined, elegant lines.
All you have to do is visit Beneteau Antares 11 and 11 Fly on the dock at Milan Yachting Week discover its features, read what new concepts inspired it, look at the first sailing photos, those of the interior and deck, and enjoy its video.
Nord Star 31+Patrol – 10.5 m
Not only is the Nord Star 31+Patrol an “all weather”(click here ) cruising powerboat, it is also designed for those who love speed and luxury. In fact, this 10-meter is capable of touching 50 knots of top speed. If you plan to do longer sailing instead, consumption at the cruising speed of 26 knots is about 1.9 liters per mile. In keeping with Nordic tradition, it is a boat designed to cope with the most challenging conditions in total comfort. A comfortable and smooth boat inside, but with adequate space outside as well, as you can see by clicking here.
