About Luxury Sailing Yacht CROCE DEL SUD:
CROCE DEL SUD is a classic, custom built schooner, a unique luxury sailing yacht offered for yacht charters in the West Mediterranean during summer months.

Andrea Coscia was at the helm of the CROCE DEL SUD since September 2011. He further says: "Being in command of this gem is really 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 on-board instrumentation, which can be expected of a modern yacht".   The amazing feat of keeping this yacht in its best shape has been possible thanks to the 800 weeks of hard working hours, between September 2008 and July 2011, when involved no fewer than 7 production departments of the Amico Yard worked in a hangar of almost 3.000m2 on the hull, the deck, the electrical wiring, the galley, the engines and the masts and yards of this fabulous schooner. The final conservation and restoration work did not betray any of the original features of this fine classic yacht charter boat.
