Pinuccia Adds More History to Little Falmouth Yacht Yard

Falmouth boat repair

A historic yacht joined us for restoration work- the elegant Pinuccia.  Reportedly once owned by Mussolini, this 8 metre classic yacht was designed by Vincenzo Vittorio Baglietto to represent Italy in the 1939 World Cup.

The outbreak of war prevented her from racing but in the 1960s a Swedish syndicate successfully competed with her.  It is unclear exactly how she came to be neglected but Pinuccia was found decades later in a barn on the Belgium/Holland border in a state of disrepair.  She was found by Olga Polizzi and taken to John Moody's Yard in Salcombe, Devon.  Beautifully restored, she now provides day sails to visitors of Hotel Tresanton in St Mawes, Cornwall.

Our boatyard has seen some magnificent vessels throughout its history including packet ships and the Cutty Sark.  The beautiful Pinuccia adds both elegance and history to our boatyard and we were delighted to welcome her.
