Submit Information on this Yacht

Launched in 1963 as ‘Huna I’ she was restored in 1999/2000.

“In her almost six decades of life Beatrice has had four owners. Antonietta Tiozzo and Giovanni Stefani,  industrialists from the Veneto and husband and wife commissioned her as a First Class under the RORC rule. Launched on August 14th, 1963, she was christened Huna. In 1981 she was sold to Mario Rondolino, an entrepreneur in information technology from Piedmont, and his sister-in-law Jacqueline Ferey; they renamed her Beatrice. After Rondolino’s death in 1998, in 1999 the yawl was inherited by his brother Giorgio who then sold her to Roberto De Silva, Diana Bracco’s husband. Beatrice was given a new lease on life and from her new home in Santo Stefano al Mare’s port of Marina degli Aregai she undertook several cruises and participated in the 2000 and 2002 editions of Le Vele d’Epoca d’Imperia, at the time part of the Prada Challenge for Classic Yachts and after 2005 the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge. At the racing in Imperia Beatrice had Dani De Grassi on the helm, the gifted and expert sailor raised in the Bora winds of the upper Adriatic in Trieste.”
