We found this classic Feadship in Italy. Commissioned in 1960 from Van Lent & Zonen, one of the founding members of the Feadship consortium, the 62 ft TIKY was an extravagant boat for her time. The Fischer family cruised her all over northern Europe for 20 years before selling her back to yard owner Jan Van Lent in 1982. She was sold again, renamed LENTEN ROSE and spent a few years in the UK before being taken to the Mediterranean, where she cruised under a succession of British owners, including Lord Normanton, chairman of the British Powerboat Racing Club, who changed her name to ALTO VOLANTE after his famous racer. Although modernized over the years, in due course she fell into some decline to be found in 2006 by a hands-on boat restorer; the current owner.
After extensive restoration, the yacht was moved in 2011 by land to Fox’s Marina & Boatyard in Ipswich to be finished, painted, and commissioned. Finally; eight years after buying her, in May 2014 TIKY was deemed ready for launched and delivered to San Remo in Italy.
She’s listed at €1.3M.
