This is a Write up from Nautica.it
Nuvolari & Lenard surprised us once more for the sophisticated taste and design, for the combination of colors and finishing touches, for the use of innovative materials as well as for a touch of tradition where necessary.
Moreover, Nuvari Yachts was capable not only of understanding and of materializing a refined design but, also of building a fully-fitted, functional, elegant motor yacht with ample and sophisticated inner habitability and ergonomic and innovative outside spaces by combining state-of-the- art building technologies with artisan tradition.
Nuvari Yachts main office is in Fano, a seaport which is quickly becoming one of the capitals of Italian yachting. The reader should refer to the photographs for the above-mentioned description and details. Below, I would rather report the sea trials that lasted quite a while for we sailed for a long time as we did not have a timetable to stick to. The stability and maneuverability of this motor yacht really surprised us: the boat entered into a plane with no difficulties and planed even at slow speed without vibrations, still perfectly maneuverable.
The impact with the wave was short, precise, with no trim or direction loss. As for hull maneuverability, we verified the crush stop time and as soon as the Nuvari 63 stopped moving forward we engaged the gear levers, one ahead and one astern, at minimum speed. The yacht turned on herself following a 180° turn, with such a precision and speed that her bow quickly stopped in the white foam of her wake.
There is not much more to be added! We ask the reader to refer to the technical data for specifications and we emphasize the elegance and refined interiors as well as the ample, easily accessible engine room. In conclusion, I would like to point out to the extremely interesting quality/price ratio, most especially if one thinks about the considerable list of quality equipment, accessories, electronic instruments and all else, which is strictly full optional for the Nuvari 63.
