For the “Sea Trials” section
we board onto the MCY 76 for an exciting sea trial starting from Monfalcone, in the enchanting stretch of sea in front of Trieste. We also test how the new GS 48 Performance of Cantiere del Pardo and the Zar 95 SL, the amazing maxi-rib by Zar Formenti, performed at sea. It’s then the Absolute Navetta 68 time, the most recent and precious creation of Absolute Yachts. The modern Elan Impression 45.1, the last jewel of Elan Yachts, the famous Slovenian manufacturer, closes the series.
The nautical accessories corner

The International Yachting Media Digest it’s not only nautical though:
Discover the luxury and lifestyle entirely dedicated section
with the in-depth study of the new MC2 Quick Gyro gyroscopic stabilizers by Quick SpA. The famous Ravenna-based company, has indeed chosen to communicate its revolutionary product through an ironic advertising campaign characterized by short sketches in light tones, which shows how the stabilizers have now become an essential element of comfort for the demanding and modern shipowner at the sea.
For newbies or for owners who’re always looking for nautical tricks and didactics, we share with you a practical guide to re-project your dream cabin. Nothing better than some good advices on LED lighting for those who would like to give a new, fresher and more modern image to their boat’s interior, although they cannot afford grand style expensive restructuring.
Last, but not least, we sail towards “Itineraries”, the final thematic area of this third issue of The International Yachting Media Digest, which allows us to extend our virtual journey a little further with a dream tour across the revolving bridge of the Ossero Canal.
