Design 2011 - Nita III

The client who commissioned this design was enamored with design #1961, Tarantella which he had seen in and around his home port of Genoa, Italy. He turned to the very same builder, Cantiere Carlini of Rimini, Italy for his new yacht. The arrangement is somewhat unusual but she designed as specified by her owner. She was launched in 1970

Here's the general arrangement plan.

Here's an article in Italian. Please double click for zoom.

A sister was built, named Clerici. She is quite similar but with a different layout and a ketch rig. Here's the general arrangement, which is much more conventional.

LWL 39'-6"
Beam 14'-6"
