Such a sad end to a mighty boat.

Mike forward it to Black Tornado on here, he will go find her, I also believe Delta Synthesis is in a similar state I am trying to do something about her if poss.
If Marco (BT) can find her then lets ship her home

Hi Tim and Mike,
It catches me that Tramontana was a long time ago in Italy some....17 years and not resting somewhere in England.
Anzio it's far from me almost 400 km and that area is out of my routs of job.
But Anzio was and is still the center of the Navaltecnica that built the Speranziellas and others Levi's legendary boats. I will try to ask to them.

I have asked information of Tramontana on this site.
I will ask then info also on the Delta S.

Marco

P.S. I hope that one day we can speak of Offshore in front of a dish of "spaghetti allo scoglio" and a good white wine (I prefer the beer however').

Here the Tramontana today!
Giacomo Vitale of this web site www.amalficoastcharter.com has immediately answered to my request of information sending me these photos gone off in last June.
Tramontana it's in very bad conditions in the same site of the two pics posted on boatdesign.net along the "litoranea"(coast road) near Anzio.
The friend Giacomo thinks that however' that boat would be able not to be the true Tramontana but one twin.

Anzio was the center of the Navaltecnica/CANAV Yards where Agnelli made to construct its famous offshore boats designed from Levi.
In a previous yours post always speaking about Tramontana you said that it had been sold to one navy of the Middle East...

Delta Synthesis

Please let us know of any understanding of the whereabouts of Delta Synthesis. I am in Italy regulary and would live to add her to the work we are doing with Surfury.
What a prospect if it were ever possible to imagine seeing those two alongside each other again?

The pictures of Tramantora are indeed tragic - Any news?
