Yacht: Madifra

Submit Information on this Yacht



Madifra, an acronym of the names of the her owner’s children, was splashed by the Gino d’Este yard at Fiumicino near Rome. At the time she was Marconi cutter-rigged but was later converted to a yawl. The batch of wood used to build her had been seasoned for 30 years and this would keep her hull in fine condition and completely leak-free. More recently, Madifra was purchased by Milanese architect and sailing enthusiast Matteo Rossi who owned the 11-metre Blue Bird for 23 years.
