Advertiser's comments

Tonino was built in 1911 in Spain for the King Alphonso XIII. The king ordered to William Fife III a smaller racer to enjoy directly as helmsman with a smaller crew. Tonino was built by the Astilleros del Nervion Boatyard in Bilbao. Right after the launch, Tonino started an intense activity of sailing regattas with many victories and successes in England, Spain, France and Italy. On board, Tonino hosted the royal family and many others aristocrats.  Tonino raced a lot up to the beginning of the first world war. The yacht remained under the King of Spain ownership until the Spanish revolution of 1931, when she was sold in Italy. With the name of Vega 1 she became a Marconi sloop, then transformed into a cruising yacht, without altering its elegance and purity. In the sixties, she became the property of some business partners of Milan and twenty years later she underwent a restoration, involving the designers Carlo Sciarrelli and Bruno Veronese. In 1986, she attends the first Vintage Sails of Imperia and the following year in Porto Cervo. In 1993, the boat, built of oak and cedar, was restored at the yard Canaletti of La Spezia, to her original rig as well as the old name, under the supervision of Bruno Veronese. In 2000, Tonino participated at the regatta of Imperia.  The price doesn't include yacht broker commission 5%+VAT   Tonino è stato costruito nel 1911 in Spagna per il re Alfonso XIII. Il re ordinò a William Fife III, un Cutter più piccolo per avere il piacere di timonare direttamente con un equipaggio ridotto. Tonino è stato costruito dal Cantiere Astilleros del Nervion a Bilbao. Subito dopo il Varo Tonino ha iniziato una intensa attività di regate veliche, con molte vittorie e successi in Inghilterra, Spagna, Francia e Italia. A bordo, Tonino ha ospitato la famiglia reale e molti altri nobili. Tonino ha partecipato a molte regate fino all'inizio della prima guerra mondiale. Lo yacht è appartenuto al re di Spagna fino alla rivoluzione spagnola del 1931, quando fu venduta in Italia. Con il nome di Vega 1 è diventata uno Marconi sloop, poi trasformato in uno yacht da crociera, senza però alterare la sua eleganza e la purezza. Negli anni Sessanta, divenne di proprietà di alcuni partner commerciali di Milano e venti anni dopo ha subito un restauro, che ha coinvolto i designer Carlo Sciarrelli e Bruno Veronese. Nel 1986, partecipa al primo raduno di vele d'epoca di Imperia e l'anno successivo a Porto Cervo. Nel 1993, l'imbarcazione, costruita in legno di rovere e cedro, venne nuovamente restaurata presso il cantiere Canaletti della Spezia. L’armo torna a essere un cutter aurico, così come venne ripristinato il vecchio nome Tonino, sotto la supervisione di Bruno Veronese. Nel 2000, Tonino ha partecipato alla regata di Imperia. Attualmente fa parte della collezione di antiche imbarcazioni di un imprenditore Italiano  The price doesn't include yacht broker commission 5%+VAT
