Photo curtesy Jacopo Montefusco- Aluaka sailing around Arkos (Arki)

I’m the worst blogger ever, but I still busy traveling and follow many new yachts, used yachts and some design. Fortunately from 2008 we made the right choice to stay in the market, offering high quality services. We have time for some sailing with the family and enjoy other yachts.

Aka,  built by K&M Holland and completed by Zuanelli has now sailed over 2000nm. Owner is happy, just some fine tuning, regular for a new boat. Aluaka and Aka meet in Nidri Bay, Greece end of October for some photos. Aluaka finish the seal trial with 6 months sailing, with nice sailing experience, because this year was quite windy.

The Cannes Boat show was a great show, all the builder are producing boat over 50 feet, because the market is now requiring bigger yacht and catamaran. The boat market around 12m still a disaster, but this helps the used boat market. A lot of customers are locking for an used boat, almost recent with 10 or max 15 years old. It’s very hard to sell or find a god boat over 20 years with a reasonable price. The price and the location remain the key factors to sell quickly a used good boat.
There are a lot of enquire for aluminum boat, Ovni remain the most popular brand, but there are few hull on the market ready to go. After the survey, how sell, often ask me what to buy and a long research start.We plan to visit asap Boreal Yachts and Garcia Yachting to have a overlook.
Motor boat market still down.
Our booking is now over 2 months to survey a hull.


  • Grand Soleil 58 performance hull lamination, grid lamination and general overview

A partire dal 18 gennaio 2017 potranno essere immessi sul mercato dell’Unione Europea solo unità da diporto e componenti (serbatoi, oblò, timonerie, ecc.) conformi alla nuova direttiva 2013/53/UE. Da tale data, infatti, cessa la “convivenza” tra la vecchia direttiva 94/25/CE-2003/44/ CE e la nuova 53, cioè il periodo transitorio di un anno entro cui barche e “accessori” potevano essere conformi all’una o all’altra disposizione normativa.
Godono ancora del periodo di transizione, fino al 17 gennaio 2020, i motori di propulsione ad accensione comandata (AC) fuoribordo con potenza pari o inferiore a 15 kW conformi ai limiti di emissione di gas di scarico previsti dalle vecchie disposizioni, fabbricati da piccole e medie imprese.
È utile sottolineare che i prodotti esistenti e già presenti sul mercato non sono toccati dalle nuove disposizioni comunitarie.
Per i nuovi prodotti, cioè barche e componenti che entreranno nel mercato a partire dal prossimo 18 gennaio 2017, c’è poco da dire: devono essere conformi alla direttiva 2013/53/UE e rispettare i requisiti costruttivi, di sicurezza e di protezione ambientale previsti dalla nuova disposizione comunitaria (la nuova direttiva è stata recepita in Italia col decreto legislativo 11 gennaio 2016, n. 5).

Ma l’obbligo di conformità alla nuova direttiva vale anche per la produzione di serie “precertificata” cioè i vecchi certificati saranno da aggiornare, se ben fatti e completi. Cambiano anche alcune diciture e regole di costruzione. Contattateci per l’aggiornamento delle pratiche, se prevedete di vendere una barca dopo il 17 Dicembre 2017.
Le operazioni potranno partire dal solo 1° Dicembre 2016 ed attualmente non esiste ancora una procedura definita ed un listino per gli aggiornamenti.




Una serata speciale a parlare di barche, lavori, navigazione e presentazione del libro LAVORI A BORDO.

VENERDI 26-2-2016 H 21.00  Confermare la prenotazione Questo indirizzo email è protetto dagli spambots. È necessario abilitare JavaScript per vederlo.

After 13 months working, 300 hours driving, 5000 hours design, 3000 hours interior workingn, 3000 system and hardware working, with 15 days delay for mast builder delay, thank to Cantiere Zuanelli, Autostraporti Adbon Pedretti with 5 m height truck transport, ALUAKA, touch the water in the Harbour of Chioggia (Venice), Darsena Le Saline.

It took 5 hours to launch, preare and install the mast, boom and the solar panel arch under a 30°c sun already tested in the Zuanelli Yard.

Finally we get a bert and a nice rain drop all the night.It seams Ushuaia. Flag is on the pole and the Pantaenisu Insurance is ready.

Next month will be busy for sea trial.

On the truck of Abdon Pedretti Autotrasporti ready to go

At the dock with heavy rain.

Perfectly on the water line

On day 2 we have installed the Scantrust self leveling pole, wind gen, rope spools/drums, tune the mast and the Facnor furlers

Bimini and side covers, pilot house window covers set up!


Time to go home, see you next week.




Almost ready for the first “splash” of Aluaka, the Stadtship 54Ac. The carpenters have done a good job, not always easy. The major difficult they had, was to think how to make all the panels easy to disassembly and to bend the ceiling of the round shaped pilot house.

Most of the visitors on board don’t understand that the floor is made in rubber  with wood pattern. We say that is only rubber nobody believe us. Nice!

We had finish the plumbing with John Guest and we had fix all the small leaks and finally we decide to install a water heater, no Reflex and no hydronic webasto. It’s always possible, but for now, we would like to sail asap and kiss.

The Cnc Treadmaster has been the perfect choice to speed up the job for the antislip on deck. We used epoxy West System to glue it. A ncie job done in 5 days

We had the bad surprise that there was a missing weld on the day tank , the only one not tested (the Murphy ‘s law) and Milan our proud welder fix it. Hope no more surprise like this.

TheTecnosystem upholsterer  start  to make the template using a film for all the berth and the bimini, in one month I will have all the material, including the windscreen mesh to keep heat low under the pilot house glass when in the Med and Caribbean.

The Ce certificate is almost ready and finally we find the way to weld the keel in-house and transport the boat with 5 m height from the street, thank to Abdon Pedretti. The yard in Chioggia (venice) has been booked for June. We don’t know now for the holiday, sailing long the Croatian coast or straight to grece after the final boat tuning.

We are only waiting for the mast from Sparcraft ordered the 30th Oct…Hope will arrive!

(Last new the ETA was 16 April now shifted to the 4th of May…May be for the 10th we got the mast! Hope all Right.

The sails are on the way, we have just ordered the Ultra GLF  antiwtsit cable for the Asy and the Code.


A lot of changes in CN Valle Scrivia Srl, Some new people and I’m just back from Spectra Training Class in San Francisco.

We still busy with a lot of survey in used market and some new job on desk.


The cockpit with wood batten seat to stay dry and ventilated good in cold and hot climate


The pilt house bimini made in mesh will keep low the temperature on the glasees.The mesh will offer less wind resistance.

Please note the wood strip to make all the tread master panels at the same distance


Gluing the Treadmaster: check the panel size and space beewten, then grind the deck, set the panels and lay the tape leaving 1-2mm space around the treadmaster. Clena the panel, grind again the aluminium more gentle, cleaning with solvent then apply on both surface the resin. Stich them, adjust the panle in the tape template, then press it or roll it to debuble little bit of air, then make the edge smooth. This job need two persons.

The final job

The final Job (note Aka on the background)
