Built 2004. Eight berths in three double cabins plus main saloon. Boarding Pass 1 is a 13 metre yacht, with luxurious accommodation and a fast hull which is not only quick but safe in all weather conditions.

She is built with elegant lines, a general sense of harmony and outstanding performance.  Careful thought has been given to all aspects of construction, but nowhere more so than on deck, where you will find simple but functional fittings and a generous sail plan; with all running rigging led aft to the cockpit.   Boarding Pass is a delight to sail.

The interior of the yacht has an air of quality: forecabin with own heads, spacious saloon and linear galley which is situated to port, and then aft to where the two double cabins are situated.  All the equipment systems are sound-proofed so your peace and comfort won’t be disturbed.

Externally this fine looking yacht, with her stylish transom, has achieved the perfect balance between hull and deck volumes, and offers also a large and well protected cockpit, along with safe side decks to complete what is, without any half measures, a classic destined to remain forever beautiful. A good example of Italian style.

Outstanding construction quality, comprising galvanized steel reinforcing frame to receive the lead keel, keel-stepped mast, and the rigging loads. This together with a closed-cell foam core hull above the water line creates an extremely stiff hull with an ultra-low centre of gravity for unrivalled windward performance and overall speed. A true cruiser/racer!!

Every aspect of design has been carefully considered, resulting in a faster, stiffer, stronger and higher quality yacht in all areas. Technology and deck ergonomics make this not only faster, but easier to manage whilst sailing short-handed.

Boarding Pass I has a furling Genoa.  Her Main sail is slab reefed through leech lines brought back to the cockpit.  The luff points are secured using the cringles and ramshorn.  A very simple yet effective system.
