She was a sturdy build, made to carry heavy marble blocks from Carrara to ports throughout the Mediterranean. The yacht was registered as a private yacht for 40 years then in until 2006 after 4 years worth or restoration she became a commercial registered charter vessel, once again seaworthy, strong, and beautiful.
