The 49’ produced by Adria Sail, saw the creation of five boats in this series that were externally identical but characterized by elements of personalization in the internal lay-out and style.
The first yacht of the series, Fast Forward, has had a highly successful cruising career and at the same time has behaved most creditably in different typologies of regattas in which the owner and his crew, have taken part.
The most gratifying was the victory in the 500 x 2 which was won by Andrea Mura and Guido Maisto with the Adria 49 Vento di Sardegna, as well as the numerous victories of Ars Una and Neera in a variety of IRC and IMS regattas in the Mediterranean.
The philosophy of this project is to produce a yacht that offers performance, safety and comfort.
Only if these three elements are taken into consideration at the same time and only if their perfect synergy is sought for a long time, it is possible to create a yacht that really satisfies owners, sailors and guests.
The needs related to the absolute speed of the boat, control and safety influenced all the choices made, starting from the water lines of the hull, from the hydrodynamic analysis of the appendages to the study of the structure and the sail plan.
In terms of plant engineering, construction methodology and detail, an in-depth synergistic work between Adria Sail and Felci Yacht has made it possible to research and create cutting-edge solutions, certainly unique for boats of this size, always with the ultimate goal of maximum simplicity. management, ease of maintenance and immediacy of control.
At the origin of Adria Sail Custom Yachts there are the passion and competence of its founder, the architect Maurizio Testuzza who, in over two decades of activity, has outlined a way of working and producing boats that has always stood out for excellence. quality, innovation and high technological content.
Adria Sail built some of the most iconic performance cruiser of the last two decades: the Felci Yacht 49, the Reichel/Pugh Nauta 59 KER, the Felci Yacht 80 IKAIKA,. The Frers MANDRAKE and the B-Yachts B52 GENIE of the LAMP as well as the Grand Soleil Custom 80 ESSENTIA and the brand new 72 and the Felci Yacht Design Scuderia 50 and 65.
