Bianchi and Cecchi Sportsman

A varnished wood open sports boat with outboard on trailer

This worldwide company was founded in 1942 in Genoa Italy. Now involved in many other aspects of shipbuilding and logistics including life boats, this varnished wooden sports boat is a product of their traditional boatbuilding services. This particular model was imported to the UK from lake como in the 90s by Luca Devoti – the Italian Olympic sailor. Built in the fifties and early sixties the Sportsman is designed for 2 to 6 people on two benches with a charming slatted mahogany floor and is ideal for trailing from one classic boat event to another. Easy to launch and recover, light enough to trail with a family saloon or even a classic period sportscar, this could be the perfect boat for an occasional user. With a little used (20 hours) 35hp Mariner outboard and a fresh coat of varnish in 2016 Greenaway is ready to go. The boat comes complete with cushions, covers, swim ladder and oars.
