The first owner was Luigi Botto Steglia, who commissioned the boat under the name of ‘Luima’ and later changed the name to ‘Bufeo Blanco’. Other past owners include Ido Minola and Luigi Oneto.
After many years in the Eolie Islands of Sicily, ‘Bufeo Blanco’ had a complete refit during the winter of 2006/7 by the shipyard of ‘Francesco Del Carlo’ in Viareggio, Italy. In June 2007 she attended the Argentario Sailing Week for her debut and came third overall.
