"She's going on for eighty, but She has the sassiness of an eighteen-year-old, and the mature beauty of a real queen of the sea," says her Captain, Andrea Coscia who was at the helm of the Croce del Sud in the days of the Veteran Big Boat Rally of September 2011. "Being in command of this gem is thrilling. The old waterlines restored to their original purity together with the masts and yards, which are still those of the launch, are merged with the technology and efficiency of the onboard instrumentation, which can be expected of a modern yacht".
This restoration was possible thanks to the 40.000 hours of work, from September 2008 through July 2011, involving 7 production departments of the Amico Yard work in a hangar of almost 10,000 square feet on the hull, the deck, the electrical wiring, the galley, the engines and the masts and yards of the schooner. With a difficult, but stimulating task: conservation and restoration that did not betray any of the original features of the boat and at the same time make it an efficient yacht, with today's safety standards, enjoyable to handle and comfortable for cruising for (at least) the next 20 years.
