Rondine II - 59ft Sangermani Classic Yacht

The Yacht, built in 1948 Sangermani Yard  is a Yawl. The boat was commissioned in 1947 by Comm Pratolongo Mario, a true sportsman of the sea, and launched in July 1948 with the name of Fiammetta II. So it was called the daughter of the owner. That year the journal "Sail and Power" wrote: - … was born an "Ocean Racer" classy ...-
For fifteen years the boat stayed in Sicily but in 1965 came back to the Sailing Club "Italy" in Naples and in 1968 in Rome. Around 1971 it was bought by an executive of Banco di Napoli and returned to the capital of Campania to be sold again in 1975 to George Peruffo. Then it was transferred to the next owner with an unusual way: the exchange with a light aircraft. Rondine II was re-checked and rearranged in the yard of Santa Margherita di Caorle. Finally, in 1983, the boat found the friendly waters of the Ligurian coast. Shipyards in Sangermani could once again meet his friend Mariano Topaz, shipwright that many years ago had "wrapped" in larch and instantly recognized it with deep emotion the old hull former Fiammetta.

The boat responds well on all points of sail, especially upwind from large to loose, when it offers exciting moments that repay the effort. Rondine II is now very popular in gatherings of Vintage Boats.
