Barche a Motore: Jeanneau NC 37

Summer is just around the corner, are you loaded? Barche a Motore returns to the newsstands and digital with N.7. As usual we give space to all boats, but this time we decided to focus on what we know best, the “made in Italy”. There will also be “overseas” yacht raids with some models coming from outside the Mediterranean and then our three in-depth boards with top models. And then, as always, interviews with the great faces of the nautical world such as Luca Santella, from Olympic to super boat architect.

Plus all the secrets of living the summer at the seaside…at its best! What are the 10 must-see destinations for next summer? And the 10 bays? And the 10 restaurants? From today on newsstands and on digital issue on Barche a Motore!
