natantiFor Italian law, vessels are pleasure craft less than 10 meters long. A vessel, always according to the Code of Recreational Navigation (art.3 of D.Lgs N. 171/2005), must not be registered. It is considered a movable property and therefore it is not registered in the Public Registers. Therefore, according to the Civil Code, in cases of purchase and sale for them no registration or advertising of the transfer of ownership is required. However, it remains the owner’s right to register the boat in the R.I.D. (Recreational Boat Register). In addition, if the motorization is less than 40 hp (29 kW), and only in this case, they drive without a license. The models in this review are those at the upper limit of the category: the so-called natantoni. Those that show off lengths even longer than the fateful 9.99 meters. This is possible because they have been homologated with hull lengths within 10 meters, then dashboards, dolphins and various platforms lengthen the total dimensions (in the measurements below, in fact in brackets with * is indicated the registration length). Thus, the cruisers allow short and medium range cruises, sometimes in a more comfortable way, others with a little more spirit of adaptation, but it is the right price to have a cruiser saving the administrative burden of the larger units. Which administratively result: pleasure boats.
