Akis 27 Cigala and Bertinetti – 8 meters

For lovers of fast boats of yesteryear, we have a real treat here. From Venice, a reader posted in the classifieds section an Akis 27 Cigala and Bertinetti, restored in 2023 and powered by a 2019 Honda BF 250 outboard. At 8 meters long, it is a classic powerboat with a central cockpit, a large sundeck in the stern and a protected covered space in the bow.

Founded in 1957, by Fulvio Bertinetti, this shipyard pioneered the production of fiberglass hulls in Italy. Among the illustrious collaborations is definitely the one with the
fairing wizard, Fabio Buzzi
. In the golden years of offshore the shipyard collected victories on the race courses with 18 world titles, 15 European, 27 Italian, 29 world records and 3 World Cups. From racing to recreational production, the DNA has remained the same. Once the boat’s actual condition is verified, theAkis 27 Cigala and Bertinetti is definitely a nice guarantee of speed and fun on the water.

Sunseeker Predator 61 – 17.37 m

We continue with the third and last of the boats used “under the lens” of the day. Here we definitely go up in square footage with a Sunseeker Predator 61 (17.37 x 4.65 m), built in 2001 by Sunseeker to a design by Don Shead, the historic signature of the British shipyard since 1979.

A super-comfortable and sporty boat with which you will be able to tack in total stability and peace of mind at 30 knots while sitting in the super-accessorized covered deckhouse with bar, refrigerator, large sofa and table.

The interior features a large dinette with a wide V-shaped sofa on the starboard side and a galley on the port side. The model we offer, which can be seen in Tyrrhenian, is from 2003 and is offered in its layout with two XXL cabins with a double peninsula bed and two bathrooms.

The boat is super-equipped: bow and stern maneuvering propeller, 220v Kohler generator, air conditioning (hot/cold), garage for the tender, satellite TV antenna, ice-maker, electronic instrumentation complete with radar and autopilot. These are just some of the amenities on board. Propulsion (inboard diesel inline) is by two 1,050-horsepower Man engines that have 1,300 engine hours.
