Calogia is a beutiful Sparkman&Stephens design n° 1948-C7 built with great skill by Peppino Gallinari in his renewn boatyard of Anzio in triple layer of mahogany veneer in 1967 . The late Olin Stephens short time before his death at 100 years old , saw Calogia in a classic yachts meeting , confirmed his paternity , congratulated the owners for the state of maintenance and wished to sign and dedicate to them a picture of the yacht .
Calogia has been built for a top manger of the italian motorcycle company Moto Guzzi ,and at the time of the launch she was painted with the same tone of red characteristic of the famous Italian motorcycles . Now the yacht is white ( less heath stress to the wood planking ) after the thorough refit she received by her actual owners in 2009 as a gift for 20 years of happy ownership .
The refit has been really important. The owners decided to entrust of the operation the same boatyard that built her over 40 years before. Calogia was stripped to barewood and found in great conditions.It received the whole cycle of treatment to end up with the actual white enamel .
