Mr. Bassani's Weekender Mezz'acqua is really elegant. There's a certain style to Italian boat design, as there is in most Italian design of any kind, and this Weekender certainly has it. Look at the graceful sweep of the cockpit coamings, the clean-looking chrome ports on the cabin sides, the harmonious varnish and cream colors; it all comes to gether and makes the boat look very classic and yet modern at the same time. Very Italian! I can imagine pretty easily sailing around Portofino or some of those great little islands off the west coast. Thanks very much for the terrific photos!
