Such a beautiful boat. I saw my first one at the Miami show back in the 70s and still remember that it was a piece of artwork. Thanks for the link. Bill

I wonder if they all came with out an engine hatch:confused: or just #278 to show case the Lambo 12's:convertib:. Must be pretty loud inside the cockpit ,but I'll bet the sound of 24 sparks plugs chattering away offsets it :propeller:

The Cantiere Nautico Dellapasqua DC shipyard is another old boat manufacturer in Italy and in 1989 they stuck a Ferrari Testarossa 'flat' V12 with

390 hp in their racing derived daycruiser. They sure got some publicity and I haven't heard that they made any more with a Ferrari in the DC7

daycruiser, it was a Kevlar49 lay-up hull in this specific boat. Dellapasqua make very high quality boats, but mainly yachts in the 30'-60' range.

Like the sound of the 'boxer' and a curiosity is the Volvo DPX drive. Legendary Ferrari engineer Mario Vincenzi made it all work.
