A new range of sailing vessels with 63 years of history
Marcelo Penna (Marcelo Penna Yacht Design), Ximo López (Longitud Cero), Vicente Belliure (V. Belliure Construcciones Navales) and Leonardo García de Vincentiis (Barcos Singulares) have signed an agreement to build and market a range of fast high quality sailing yachts. This range will be marketed with the Belliure brand, although the three other brands will be also represented.
The first unit of the new range will be a 66 feet (20 metres) cruiser/racer sloop fast and with an innovative design. Marcelo Penna has conceived all the maneuvering for a reduced crew, even for just a couple.
Londitud Cero has already laminated the first hull using advanced composites with its proverbial craftmanship for which it is considered among the best high technologies builders worlwide.
Interiors and systems, to the customer’s choice, will be masterly executed by Belliure as usual for them. This first unit can be delivered six months after the agreement with her owner.
The new range will be completed by a 45’, a 55’, an 82’ and a 100’, from the same designer and will be officially introduced at the next Palma International Boat Show, on Stand A-46.
Belliure since 1953, Marcelo Penna since 1984, Barcos Singulares since 2004 and Longitud Cero since 2005 they all have the experience to carry on this new product aimed to a customer very exigent on themes as the reliability, quality, performances and comfort.
“I’m so glad with this new challenge and to see that Belliure’s star will shine again on sailing vessels” said Vicente Belliure, fouder and alma mater at the Yard in Calpe (Alicante).
“It is time to diversify our work and to make advantage from our deep experience in building racing boats to such a high level. Having started from World Prix and Ocean racing winners now we can build also top quality fast cruisers” said Ximo López in Castellón.
Marcelo Penna from Barcelona said: “I think that we all are leading experts on a growing market with an important international environment. We are well placed on this market, with an unbeatable quality/price value. We are very keen to amaze with new ideas and new designs”.
The marketing of the new range will be managed by Leonardo García de Vincentiis, from Barcos Singulares. He has a deep experience in the nautical field and runs a widespread European organization. “It is an interesting challenge to market a new range of so well crafted ships on a market ruled today by Finnish, British, Dutch and Italian Yards” was his comment from Barcelona.
